Wear them with jeans and a white shirt, a silk dress with knee-high boots or with your 9-to-5 suit. There’s something alluring about the most timeless trend of lady-like bags.

It says, “wear me on your morning coffee run”, it says, “nonchalantly smile and shrug your shoulders whenever I’m complimented, but secretly you’re squealing inside”… ” but you should never squeal while holding me”. Aside from being the self-proclaimed bag whisperer, this is the slightly more practical option to the equally gorgeous Pouch.
