Miu Miu Wooden Handle Tote

I am constantly drawn to cream colored leathers. Browns and whites can be harsh at times, so adding a bit of cream to tone it down is the perfect option. And whites do not have to stop being worn after Labor Day, in fact winter whites are perfectly luxe for the season. But I typically opt for a white that is creamier. And the soya cream leather on the Miu Miu Wooden Handle Tote offers a feeling of winter resort. The wooden handle does give the bag a very resort feel, but would look perfect in a more tropical area (like South Florida). The wooden handle may not fit on your shoulder well, and even if it did it may grind into your shoulder a bit. Of course Miu Miu added in an optional detachable shoulder strap. I adore this bag, adore the color of the leather, and adore the wooden accent. Buy through Net A Porter for $1350.

I figured we could continue the battle of the similar designs from Friday. Why not right? The Fendi Spy Bag became a huge hit, in fact was one of the bags that catapulted the “it” bag obsession, back in 2005. You were only handbag-cool if you had a Fendi Spy Bag. The bag itself is a bit different; a large slouchy oval body, funky handles, a cool hidden compartment, a fun pocket, and a large open body. After it became the next best thing since sliced bread, Fendi went on to reinvent the Spy in a plethora of variations, materials, skins, and looks. Some were awful, some were beautiful, and the Spy is still a recognizable bag.

Then came Miu Miu, known for chic bags that resemble its older sister Prada but have a more stomachache price tag. We have been mad for Miu Miu handbags for quite some time now, loving the chic and fun styles and lines. So Miu Miu decided to take a note from the Bottega Veneta and Fendi book, pairing woven leather on a Spy like shaped bag.

The Miu Miu Woven Leather Tote is actually a favorite of mine for many reasons. The rich berry tones are perfect for fall and the woven leather shows off this soft saturated leather beautifully. The slouchy hobo body resembles the body of the Fendi Spy but does not have the fold over flap top with the cool pouch pocket and hidden lip gloss compartment. Either way, I am loving this bag. And I love the Fendi Spy Bag as its design at one time was new and the bag transforms outfits into chic ensembles pulled together by the handbag.

So what do you think of the Fendi Spy vs the Miu Miu Woven Leather Tote?

Buy the Fendi Spy through Net A Porter for $2,250 and the Miu Miu Woven Leather Tote through Net A Porter for $1,595.
