I’ve had a lot of handbags over the years – little ones, big ones (mostly big ones), pretty ones, ugly ones (lots of those)… but one type that I’ve never had is really nice, classically elegant luxury handbag. But, happy day, I was selected to review a SUSU Luxury Leather Handbag!
“From simple color blocked totes, to classic satchels in soft leather, to traditional shoulder bags accented with simple hardware, SUSU’s fleet of sleek, versatile designs continues to deliver timeless, tasteful styles for the professional woman seeking luxury handbags that are classic and modern all at once.”
I’ve gotta tell you, this is far and away the nicest handbag I’ve ever owned. By a LOT. I chose to review the Baxter – Red Mermaid Leather Crossbody Bag, and it’s even more gorgeous in person than it was on the website! My pictures really don’t do it justice either. It has such an elegant, classic look to it – but classic in the good way, not in the boring way. The outside is 100% genuine dual texture leather with a “fishskin” pattern, and the inside is cotton with two open pockets plus a zippered pocket. It has an optional, adjustable crossbody strap (up to 21 inches) and a top zipper closure.
Knowing the abuse that my handbags go through on a daily basis, this eye-catching handbag won’t be my everyday bag – it’s just too nice of a handbag to store diapers, wipes, sippy cups, and Cheerios in. This is my “grown-up professional adult” handbag, for those times when I get to dress up or represent myself as a professional (hey, it does happen sometimes!) This bag is large enough to hold my necessities (like my cell phone, notepad, and wallet), but not so large that it could be mistaken for a diaper bag (which is the type I normally carry).
Another consideration is the price of this handbag – this truly is a luxurious professional handbag. The Baxter retails for $278. As a mom of four, I’ll openly admit that this is not only the nicest handbag I’ve ever owned, it’s also the most expensive! Other styles start at $115 for the absolutely beautiful envelope clutches and go up to $695 for the Waverly Classic Satchel. SUSU has so many stunning handbags that I kind of wish they’d sent me one of each style – for review purposes, you know.
