Vachetta Leather Bag, Handbag of the Day
The gem-like red color of this Vachetta Leather Bag is simply stunning and is what first caught my eye about this particular handbag. It is made in Italy with vegetable-dyed leather and has a printed cotton lining that is soft on your mobile phone and other gadgets. It has a single leather handle with a 6.5" drop, which is just long enough to slip over a shoulder, and a push-button closure at the top. The bag is accented with contrasting topstitching and antiqued brass hardware. It measures 5.75" x 11.25" x 6". In addition to claret, it is also available in black - but why not take advantage of the color to add a little spice to your winter wardrobe, rather than just sticking with basic black? Price: $225.
