A Universal Black Bag (My New Fellini Leather Bag)

Fellini Leather Bag

I rarely do style or fashion posts, but this one I just had to share. Yesterday I bought a new bag. Yay! I can't say I needed another black bag, since I already have 2 black leather bags: one casual hybryd of bagpack and bucket bag, and another one, which is classic structured office-like bag. But, I just could not resist this one, plus it falls somewhere in-between those 2 categories in style, which is perfect. And I don't know who could NOT like it and resist buying it. It is all things you could wish for in a handbag.

So, I guess I'll just add all the pictures and then comment on some of the details and style, and why I love it so much.

So as you can see it is a structured bag with an opening on 2 cool-looking zippers (it also has an invisible magnet between the zippers to hold the flap close to the side of the bag when zipped, how smart, isn't it?), which can be worn holding a small handle on top or the longer strap that is detachable, which I find extremely handy. I love the proportions of this bag: it is a medium size, but looks quite compact. Yet it fits a lot of stuff inside. The style of it is just superb with a mixture of leather with different textures and silver hardware, which I personally prefer over the gold one. It is a bit classic but also a bit edgy, it is simple but definitely not boring. I love that it will look great with jeans and pants, but also can look very nice with skirts and dresses. I find it to be very versatile for many more reasons. It will look appropriate in the office at work, on any casual occasion or on a relaxed night out with friends. Even though it is not technically an evening bag, it can definitely work nice if you are going out somewhere after work because it is this perfect size and shape and a mix of classics and casual, simple, yet with a twist, it'll definitely work for many styles, so it is a great investment piece.

In terms of quality, it is all-leather, very good leather, made in Italy, with high quality hardware and all other materials including lining. The construction of it is also very well thought out. It is very comfortable to hold in one's hands and wear on the shoulder (because the detachable strap is the perfect length, not too long and not too short, falling a little beneath the waistline in a very comfortable spot), it is not heavy, it is reasonably lightweight yet not too light, just enough to feel that you are holding something substantial in your hands. It looks and feels amazing. I am very very happy I got this bag.

If you have a Fellini store in your area and looking to buy a new handbag definitely check this one out, you won't regret it. It is quite expensive (for me at least). Its initial price in the store where I bought it was around $290, but I got a discount and purchased it for around $202. However, I can already predict I'm going to have a lot of wear out of it :).

Tell me what you think about this bag, do you like it? What style do you prefer for yourself? Please, share in the comments. I would love to read your thoughts.
