Her Name was Lola.
She was satchel.
But not just any ole' satchel.
If she were human, I imagine she'd be a bubbly blonde with pricey-lookin' highlights - highlighting a fab figure, indeed. Translation: my gorgeous new Lola satchel which designer Jess Rizzuti recently sent me in "Champagne" embossed-croc & pebbled-grain leather is as sassy as its namesake. The design is well thought out and lends itself well to being a crossbody when you need to be handsfree (the bag hits at just the right level), by the handle when the look is ladylike or sans strap altogether for an of-the-moment oversized clutch. (It measures 10"x14"x5" with a 39" strap, pockets for gadgetry & magnetic snap closures.)
Rizzuti designs her bags in her NYC studio & produces them locally. She's also been nominated two years in a row for Best Green Handbag in the Independent Handbag Designer Awards sponsored by InStyle. And it's pretty obvious as to why.
