Yes, I thought long and hard about my purchase and do I regret it? No. The main reason as to why these specific bags caught my eye was the fact that each piece I bought was compact in size and the perfect length for my petite frame. I was done with larger, shoulder bags at this point and just wanted something more practical and let's say more me...
[pipdig_padded_text padding='250']The Lottie Pebble in all leather was the perfect Christmas time investment for me and one purchase I wasn't disappointed with! I've been on the hunt for a new bag now for months and this one seemed substantial with its practicality and reasonable price point at full retail OR sale value. I luckily managed to pick it up with some discount on the full retail price and couldn't have been happier with my purchase.
The bag is very well constructed and the leather is very durable! I absolutely love the luxurious pebbled finish to the leather and feel it definitely holds up to its value with the finish of the leather and its aesthetics. The inside doesn't leave you much room for storing everyday essentials so you really do have to cut it down to a fine art of must-have basics - mine would be my mobile, lipstick, keys, lip balm and purse. These all fit in splendidly, leaving just enough room for anything extra you wish to carry such as tissues, make-up OR anything else you may require.[/pipdig_padded_text]
I couldn't be more pleased with this bag and how practical it is for day and evening! This piece is made from the finest black pebbled leather to the outside and flap on the inside followed by a canvas red interior and zip compartment. The leather has a gorgeous pebbled effect and it's also finished with a letterbox clasp closure, protective feet to the base and gold metal chain with leather entwined around the metal for a very interesting finish. The chain is very hardwearing and heavy in weight but still super comfortable for wearing over your shoulder for hours on end.
I love the fact the chain is heavier in weight as it gives a sense of luxury and good quality craftsmanship for something that will most definitely stand the test of time with constant wear. What's even more appealing about this specific bag is the many ways you can wear it from a cross body, to shoulder or even as a grab bag/clutch, the opportunities are endless and the colour also helps to make it a versatile accessory in your wardrobe. If you order from Aspinal of London direct you can also have the option of personalisation - where you can have your initials placed on the front clasp.
