ReStyle - Briefcase "MAP BROWN" Gothic Satchel Bag
Whenever I want a truly Gothic handbag or a Steampunk handbag, I just think, "ReStyle". As I have said before, I am a handbag girl and I love all different types of bags, but there is a certain excitement that happens when I get anything from ReStyle! It's like Goth - Steampunk heaven!
This bag is made of solid brown eco leather. (PU) It keeps its shape perfectly. The flap is decorated with huge embroidery. Honestly, the photos do not give justice to the embroidery. It is just fabalous!
What I love it that it presents map of Caribbean sea in decorative frame. It is so funky!
The bag opens with swing hook lock. The inside lining has a large zipped pocket. The bag comes with long adjustable arm strap, which allows to wearing the bag over the shoulder.
High 27 cm
Width 37 cm
Side width 10 cm
Length of arm strap 145 cm
A Tip from Jo:
Some women are shoe girls; other women are handbag girls. I am a handbag girl.
With every handbag you have you should store it properly and use the the right protections and cleaners to keep your bag in top shape. This doesn't matter if its Leather, PU, Vegan Leather or Nylon. If a you buy a handbag that doesn't have a dust cover, you can go to Kmart and buy some cheap white pillowcases, wash them thoroughly and store your bag. For my cleaning and protection needs, I go to Strandbags. I have a collection of handbags that would make most women's jaws drop to the floor, but I swear by storing, cleaning and protecting. You can't go wrong. If you are not looking after your handbags properly, you are very naughty and need a smack on the bottom with a wooden spoon!
I hope I'm getting it through to everyone how important it is to care for your handbag. I have a handbag that is 30 years old. It was as cheap as chips and it looks exactly the same it did for my Year 12 formal.
Love you, mean it!
