Well, this is quite the interesting one. Even though this Tory Burch Rayna Nubuck Mini Bag has a seemingly perfect score on my checklist of things I like in handbags, something seems a bit off. Let’s take a closer look.

It’s purple, and I don’t have a problem with that beautiful grape shade at all- check. It’s a crossbody, which is my favorite handbag style- check. The chunky whipstitching is combined with tough suede nubuck leather, giving it a nice hand-tooled look- check. So what is it that’s unsettling? I even like the juxtaposition of the rough suede with the clean, classy, bright gold links.


Well, my friends, I’m concluding that the single element that’s been throwing me off is the logo, smack dab on the front of the flap. Tory Burch has been doing wonderfully on departing from her logo in recent designs- but this bag needs a smaller logo, like its slicker cousin: the Tory Burch Distressed Metallic Mini Bag. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $250.

    I like this bag better in the gold leather. Something about the purple suede doesn’t sit right with me (fb)
