As the summer is winding down, I am preparing to put away my summer handbag and pull out my winter ones. As I was going through some previous posts, I realized that I did a post on two summer bags, but none on my winter bags. I was thinking of one bag in particular because it has been my favorite since I purchased it over a year ago.
My staple winter bag is the ZAC Zac Posen Daphne Barrel Satchel. I fell in love with this purse the moment I laid eyes on it. Now, I rarely purchase anything full price so at the time that I saw it, it was already on a pretty good discount. I purchased mine at Saks Off Fifth for about 1/2 price. I originally saw it in one of the stores I frequent in Georgia, but did not buy it because I wanted to walk away from it and see if I still wanted it a week or so later. I walked away from it twice, but could not get it off my mind so decided to bite the bullet and get it. Guess what? It was sold out at my store! So I chalked it up as a loss because of my slow response. About a month or so later, I was on vacation in Florida and went outlet shopping there. Low and behold…there was my bag in a Saks there. I didn’t mess around. I scooped it up then and there and purchased it. I have not regret my decision.
Anyway, about the bag. It is a very structured handbag, so it is not the easiest to get into. I like that though since I rarely zip up my bags. Because it is so structured and the opening so tight, it keeps everything safe from spilling out when I don’t close it all the way. It also has my favorite feature on a handbag which is pockets on each side. I love to be able to put my cell phone in these pockets for easy access. It has a pocket on the front, which is convenient for throwing change in, but I don’t use this pocket as much as the sides. I also love the gold hardware. I am normally a silver hardware/accessory person, but the gold against the black really stands out and make the bag look luxurious. It also has the gold hardware on the bottom to allow the bag to stand up, which is another favorite feature of mine.
As you can see in the picture, this year, I have done the latest trend which is wrapping one of my handles with a scare. I love it. It gives it a little something different this year. I always get compliments on this bag which is always a bonus to me. Unfortunately, this purse is probably no longer available, but I wanted to share it anyway. What is your favorite winter handbag?
Talk to you all soon…..
