It's in the Bag ...

you know how every so often we all need some advice from our friends?

as I am near the end of ordering Fall/Holiday merchandise for the web shop,
I thought it would be a good idea to get input from my readers,
who are also my clients.

it's about the  luxury Italian leather handbags.

what size do you favor for your "go to" handbag?

small, medium, large?

& if it's large, like in inches?

& what shape?

& if it's a tote, do you like double straps or a single  shoulder strap?

this input will be excellent for me to have as there as just so many styles out there.

the luxury bags are selling quite well, and I'm so gratified that you guys like them
and trust me to give you a great style & a great price.

it's almost AUGUST, can you believe?

Hi Marsha,
I prefer medium sized and I prefer one adjustable strap. I've always found double straps problematic.
Wishing you a wonderful day.

I love Medium size bags but again I fill them up with too much stuff so I tend to use a small bag day to day!

I love a medium sized bag with handles and also a shoulder strap so I can carry it cross-body style!

A medium bc too big just ends with garbage and one that has just enough detail to be nice but not too much to overwhelm and weigh the bag down. Also the option of shoulder or hand carrying.

I love my newly-arrived "Venice" bag; it's a gorgeous color, and the leather and workmanship are excellent. But I bought it as a travel bag. For daily use, I prefer something smallish-to-mediumish that I can wear as a shoulder bag up under my arm. Too large, and I fill it with clutter. Too small, and it won't hold the monster wallets we all have now for our phones and gazillion cards.

Ahhh, thank you so much for this lovely comment.

Marsha, I love the style of the bag pictured in this post and the bags you just recently added at $149.00 are beautiful, and at such a reasonable price. It would be nice to see a picture of the inside, too. On your online shop, I'm particularly fond of the "Honor" bag, which is sold out. I like a medium size bag, large enough to carry what I need. If it's too large I find I burden myself with everything I own, and don't need. I like handles so I can use it as a clutch, but also with a long strap so I can carry it over my shoulder. I'm not really fond of that pebbly leather. Smooth leather is more to my taste.

I love LARGE bags like me!However,have been trying to go smaller for a few years now............because the back is hunching and the shoulder hurts!!I carrying a wallet..........a small mesh lipstick bag........and my glasses and a few tissues for the drippy nose thats it.Of course, there is the cell phone.........and the mammoth key ring too.So, I would say Medium too as small would NEVER be big enough but I LOVE the LOOK of the BIG BAG!XOXOX

Although this year is all about mini-bags, what I carry with me every day is a huge shopper :-) the luxury bag par excellence is the medium sized handbag.

I love medium size bags. Although I continue to see mini-bags they do not suit my lifestyle.

Your new bags are fabulous!

Have a great weekend Marsha

I will take one just like the photo...;) Right now I am looking for a cross-body that is big enough to hold all my stuff but that won't be too big. Have a beautiful weekend, Marsha!! xoxo

yikes, it is August, Marsha; how'd that happen?! I love the bag you're showing...perfect color, long and short straps, darn near perfect except it's just a tad on the small side. I use large bags, mostly, because when I get the wallet, checkbook, Leatherman knife, hand gun, hand wash, tissues, notebook, pen, lipstick and the rest of my "stuff", it's got to be big. Probably 1/3 to 1/2 larger than the brown bag you're showing. Yes, my back does hurt, now that you mention it -LOL-

For everyday I love a medium sized bag in a bowler shape ( like a Hermes Bolide) with double handles. For a tote I like double short handles as well...most are over the shoulder, and that always slips off me.
Love your blog as well as your aesthetic.

I love a large bag, but tend to carry everything including the kitchen sink, so for my poor back and a little more organization, I like a medium that has straps so I can carry it on my shoulder…
