I am going to be honest. I came across this handbag as I was checking out Rachel Zoe’s handbag picks on Piperlime. First of all, I absolutely love when websites have picks based on the advice/opinions of others in the fashion world. You might remember that we’ve partnered to do something like this with Bluefly… the Purse Blog Store! Ok, ok, I digress, back to the topic at hand.

Francesco Biasia Allison

Not that I don’t admire Rachel Zoe, but I do take what she says/recommends with a grain of salt. However, I am really liking her Francesco Biasia Allison Tote. In fact, I am actually loving this vintage inspired large leather tote. The orange-ish earth toned leather is perfect for so many occasions. Not sure how you’d carry the bag? No worries! Pick up the bag’s double handle strap or throw the shoulder strap over your shoulder and you are ready to go. The detailing might not catch your eye, but it is there and it is worth a second look. Rouching accents the bottom of the bag while the handles have some lovely stitching and weaving. Rachel Zoe, I agree with you on this one, this bag is great! Buy through Piperlime for $548.

    I ordered this bag in teal from Piperlime. It is the most uncomfortable bag to get in and out, the handles pull the top together sort of like belt clinching the waist, and leather is very stiff.
    I did not pay $548 since it was on sale however whatever I paid at that time I considered to be too much.
    It went back the very same day.

    Oh, yeah, forgot to add that leather wrapping on the handles look like someone wrapped a paper bag and it would unravel at any moment. That was the straw that broke the back
