The IT Bag! - Brenda Macleod

From as long as I can remember, I have been a fan of handbags.  Large or small, I found that they completed my outfit and of course, enabled me to bring half of my bedroom with me when I was out and about.

Brenda Macleod is a Scottish based company, specialising in handmade leather bags.  Each design is sent to Florence, Italy, where the bags are made using traditional methods and without the use of chemicals.  When I opened the box, the smell of leather instantly transported me back to my earlier vacation to Italy.

On the website, you have a choice of either 'classic' styles, or 'vintage' styles and thus, I believe that everyone's taste is covered.  You can never go wrong with THE classic bag, but if you wish to be more daring, the vintage styles work equally well.

The bag I have is the Jane tote in black.  It has the 'Brenda Macleod' embossed on the front and gold hardware which really sets the black leather off.

The bag has a zip top closing, which is always a plus in my eyes.  No sneaky hands will have easy access to what's inside.  Inside the actual bag itself, there are 2 zipped compartments, 4 unzipped compartments and 2 open sections to pack until your heart's content.  There is also a D ring for your purse.

All the compartments are very deep, so I've felt extremely comfortable knowing that my items are safe and can't easily move about or even fall out.

The minimum and understated look of the bag is very chic.  It's made with vegetable tanned leather, is fully linned and has space for a laptop.  This is my work bag.  What I also love, is that it comes with a shoulder strap for the days where I may need extra support because I have 'overpacked'.

I've looked at the bag in great detail to pick faults, but I honestly can't find any.  Even the stiching has been stitched to perfection; no loose parts, nothing.

What I absolutely love about Brenda Macleod, is that proceeds are used to contribute towards teenage education in Africa.  Giving back certainly gets my vote.

There is currently a 10% off your orders on the website, so do make sure you check it out.

I have also made a YouTube video on this bag, so check it out for full visuals.

Wear your handbag with pride!  Dawn xx
