I have an obsession with soft lambskin leather. Touch is one of our most important senses which comes into play when I shop for handbags. I kid you not, Be&D has some of THE softest leather I have ever felt in my life. I can’t even put into words how soft it truly feels. And then Be&D pairs that leather with rocking studs for a combo that gives you opposite ends of the spectrum which works out magnificently.
I was totally digging the Be&D Garbo Studded Leather Baguette when we recently reviewed the Be&D Garbo line. The baguette is not only a type of bread I love, but is also a fun name for the shape of this bag. There is an optional chain strap with a massive 21.5″ drop. And while I typically take off the chain strap, I loved the chain strap on this bag. Furthermore, you can double the chain strap to wear it as a shoulder bag, or leave it long to wear as a crossbody bag, or go chainless and carry as a clutch.
I know some of you are so over the stud trend, but I love it. My typically garb is jeans and a tee, so a studded bag really dresses it all up and adds the extra pow. Black with gold pyramid studs is the perfect classic combo when it comes to studs. There is a handy back exterior zip pocket, which would be perfect for your cell phone. The front flap has a magnetic snap, which is super powerful, so I can assure you it will not budge unless you intend for it to. I am on an entire Be&D kick. Want to join me?
