Perfect size mini tote in red leather!
Audrey Hepburn once said: “There is a shade of red for every woman”…and while she may have meant for lips, we’re going to take her to mean for purses! This red leather purse is an amazing shade of red, and is a darling bag for your everyday wear. It’s classically simple in construction yet wonderfully vibrant!
Now this handbag is a nifty little handmade item, constructed out of a high quality Italian leather. This leather is actually genuine nappa leather, which is generally dyed calf or cow leather that is tanned and known for its softness. You can bet this bag is creamy and supple and will wear beautifully. The red dye is very bright and your quintessential idea of red.
Supple and soft nappa leather with a classis shape!
Straying away from the crossbody trend, this bag is like a mini tote. Nowhere near as large as the common tote which can carry call, this is more of a small shoulder bag. It has an elegant but minimalist silhouette by tapering slightly at the bottom and the very top when closed. It features two short shoulder straps that are also composed of the red nappa leather and are thick circle handles. The handles are attached to the top of the bag with a square flap that is neatly stitched, reminiscent of Luis Vuitton stitching. Each handle is 18 inches long so you can carry it on your forearm or still fit it over your shoulder.
Excellent detail from the outside to the inside!
The interior of this purse is fully lined in a neutral lining. It also sneakily features two internal pockets; one is an open pocket for easy access to phone or keys, while the other is a zipper pocket that provides a little more security. The top of the bag closes with a magnetic snap for extra surety that your necessities are safe. Although this isn’t a large tote, this small purse can fit more that assumed. It is almost 12 inches wide at its widest point, just under 10 inches tall and a little over 3 inches deep. In all reality this is the ideal size purse, because you can carry everything from your wallet and an iPad with your phone, keys, and a lip gloss or two, without getting carried away.
Two handy pockets inside and quality lining!
So put his mini tote on your Christmas list, not just because it is the right Christmas red, but because it is a classic purse that you’ll carry every day of the New Year. The classic look and excellent construction is great for any lady, whether you’re off to class or work, or just for a day on the town. Next you can find your perfect shade of red lipstick to tuck away in your little red bag.
