One of my very first designer purchases was a Burberry scarf. I was a freshman in college and remember being frugal for a month so I could use my typical entertainment money for a Burberry scarf without my dad realizing it. Number one, he realized it and number two, the scarf was totally worth it. The classic check pattern from Burberry is as recognizable as the Louis Vuittton signature monogram. Burberry is are widely counterfeited as well, so you be aware of what you are buying and from where.

Burberry Glossy Grain Tote

Burberry may be known for their nova check pattern, but their leather bags should not be passed up. Why I love their leather bags is the price is typically still manageable for premium designer and the quality coincides with the price. The Burberry Glossy Grain Tote does not give you the typical check pattern, rather soft, glazed grain leather with nickel hardware. What I adore about this bag is the engraved check drop chain detail, it is an easy but edgy touch. The inside brings you logo check lining along with a center zip divider, interior zip, cell phone, and additional pockets. Dimensions are sizable: 3.25″W x 13.25″H x 6″D with a 7.5″ drop. And then there is the price, which like I said before it relatively great. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $895.

    I LOVE it! This might be my next bag! I have been looking at Burberry leather bags for a while now, and I haven’t seen this one yet. I love that they didn’t skimp on the interior – it is SO nicely done and organized. It’s also a pretty decent price for what you are getting.

    Megs, thank you so much for covering this bag!!!!

    Ooooh. Love this. I want it, but sad for me, got in car accident last night with uninsured driver (thier fault) soooooo — purse budget will be diverted for a bit. Dang it.

    I have this bag and absolutely love it! It’s very roomy and the chain adds the perfect touch to set it apart from all of my other black bags. I would highly recommend this bag to all!

    Do you think burberry is slightly cheaper now because of the fact the bags are made in China.

  • ZJL

    I think it’s an absolutely beautiful bag–classic, but with some trendy features. I just can’t get into the grained leather though. Not my thing. Yeah THAT’S the reason I’m not buying this bag, not the price tag ;-)

    I love that chain! Adds just a hint of edginess and a hint of the burberry signature to an otherwise plain bag. (ipad)
