  • lintmag

    Love the old photo and the gorgeous boots!

  • mochababe73

    The best part of this post is that I could actually read this it.
    Love the bag. The brand is a bit pricey for me, but it’s nice. I just don’t know how she gets an iPad in there. Maybe the bag is bigger than I think.
    And, don’t even get me started on those boots. I love them!

    • Nicole

      The bag is big enough for an i-Pad, it is made of real python skin.
      I am one of Laura Buccellati handbag collectors, I have several of them in all different skins and sizes. They are well worth the price!
      These bags are the kind you can wear inside out, the inner lining is so elegant and beautiful!
      The handbags are handmade in Italy, made with the finest materials. They are elegant, yet sturdy and can be used everyday or for special occasions.

  • Demi

    She seems great!

    Plus, her bag is amazing! Never heard of this brand before, but I just googled it and it makes fabulous bags – quite pricey though!

  • Bitty

    She is fabulous! And so are her handbags!
    I own one of these amazing bags, one made of the same skin as in the photo, but a different design.
    What I love most about her brand is the exclusivity of the handbags, many of her handbags are one of a kind, no two are every created to be identical, since each one is custom made in Italy.
    I love that I have a one of a kind couture handbag! Its totally worth it and like any high quality item you will have it for many years to come.

  • Cristina

    Love the photo of Mom juxtaposed with the iPad. Very stylish indeed.
    The bag: well where else can one get a super stylish matching day evening bag? Only Laura B would think of something practical like that but keep it at a high quality level. I opted instead for one of her crocodile handbags which I use both day and night – pure class. Simple, elegant, understated, and never fails me. Even fits my iPhone and eye glasses. Ciaooo.
