I have never had a strong affinity to brown. Which baffles my mind since brown looks less harsh against my blond hair, blue eyes, medium color skin. It is not that I am a huge lover of black, but I really just float around in the color world. But I need a new brown bag. One of my last brown bags was my Fendi Spy (yes 2.5 years ago), in honey, which is a perfect shade. And now I have found my new brown bag obsession, and am quite surprised that it is a Burberry Bag.

Burberry is synonmous with its check pattern, which many tire of quickly. I like it here and there, loved my Burberry scarf, but I can only handle it in doses. When Burberry creates a stunning leather bag and leaves the check pattern to the interior lining, they can end up with a fabulous handbag. And this is precisely what has happened with the Burberry Belted Leather Tote. The pebbled calfskin looks soft in pictures, which typically means that it is indeed sumptuous. What I love about this bag is the casual look, the belted accent which gives such a nonchalant finish. No need for crazy amounts of hardware, like in the Burberry Warrior, just simple with a nice touch. This look has me feeling fall already, it will be perfect with hues of green, purple, and brown. The golden hardware is a much better option than silver, giving a refined feeling, which I always feel in fall. Don’t you see that? The long coats and boots dress people up in the fall, making an effortlessly chic ensemble. There is also a detachable shoulder strap, double top handles, and many pockets on the inside. I simply can not argue with this handbag. Buy through Saks for $1195.

    I love this bag from the very first time I laid eyes on it. The color is fabulous too…but I’m hoping they come out with it in black since I really need a black bag.

    • Jackie

      By now, you probably have been informed that the bag is avaiable in Black. Nordstrom at Pentagon City, in Va. had one Black bag on the floor yesterday when I picked-up the last brown one. Good Luck Jackie

  • I have never liked Burberry’s bags. Too much for me. This one’s more discreet but I,m still not too crazy about it.

  • aNITA

    Burberry leather handbags usually tend to be bit heavy. I love this bag and hope it is easy on the shoulder.

  • Veronika

    Totally agree with everything you said…this bag is beautiful and I love the shape; the belted detail; and the color (even though I too am not a brown-bag lover).

  • Kathey

    This is a lovely classic old style bag. I love the color as it makes it look very casual and a lovely for students and journalists to carry. Its just sooo nice! Im going to purchase it! I also like the fact that its a sling messenger bag so I can hold many things and it can go with any outfit I have.

    have a good day! :D

  • miss c

    what a posh bag. : ) i like its soft textured leather and the inner classic check cloth. it reminds me of the iconic actresses in old times, such as audrey hepburn and vivien leigh. the interesting thing is when i told my friend about this bag, she went to piccadilly circus to buy it the next day! she also sent me an article introducing burberry bags’ history.
