We all have those moments, moments when we find something we like but aren’t quite sure why. That was my initial reaction with the RafÃ© New York Riveted Leather Large Tote. Yet as I spent a little more time examining the handbag, I figured out exactly why I like the bag. It is different. Sure, many handbags are different from one another, but this bag is definitely not one you will see everywhere you look. The various detailing found throughout the bag is nothing less than eye catching. The rivets, studs and crossed straps actually all compliment one another. Usually I feel like less is more, but in this situation, I am pleased with the intricate design. And where there are cutouts, the grey linen lining can be seen. Clearly there is ample storage room. But more than that I have to go back to the fact that I like that the bag is a bit different. I can see someone going for a boho chic look carrying a bag like this, can’t you? Plus since the bag has a simple yet intricate look, there has to be several different situations in which you’d like to carry this bag. Buy through Nordstom for $695.
