For a while now i've been coveting the perfect leather purse... one of those treasured items that you'll keep forever and ages beautifully... I first had my eye on J.Crew's Uptown and Gallery style bags... but when I came across COACH's Brooke bag I fell in love (previous post here). Well, guess what my super sweet boyfriend got me for Christmas? The Brooke bag in a beautiful taupe leather! I absolutely love it... the brass hardware goes perfect with it's lady-like handles and the lavender lining is so unexpected... i'm so excited! Thank you Rick xo.
