October's Handbag Of The Month: Leather Portrait

Megan's October

Handbag Of The Month

Every good handbag has C.A.S.H.:  Charm, Accessibility, Style & Harmony


As you already know, there was no September Handbag Of The Month because of work, vacations, the US Open, and my general lack of time.

But now...it's back!

For October, I've found something truly special.

This shoulder bag which is literally a portrait in leather, appears to have been molded using an African mask.  It's constructed with two panels of black leather, accented with brown leather trim and has a zipper on top.  The striking features of the bag's "face" are softened by several strands of braid to represent hair.   

Linette, the bag's owner was visiting friends on Long Island when I couldn't help but notice her unique tote.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I had my October Handbag Of The Month.  Linette is an actress with the Actor's Studio and it comes as no surprise that the rest of her outfit was as smartly Bohemian and unconventional as her bag.

Congratulations Linette!



Owner:  Linette - Bronx, N.Y.

Occupation:  Actress

How Much:  $50 at a half price sale

How Old:  6 months

Where Purchased:  A thrift shop on 17th street on the west side of Manhattan.

Why Did You Buy It:  "It was so different.  It just looked out at me from inside the cabinet."

More About The Bag:  Linette wears the bag in back of her and says she's often been tapped on the shoulder by someone who wants to complement her dramatic bag.
