Botkier Bianca Patent Satchel Purse
For the upcoming seasons, designers are adding hints of hot blue hues to their handbag collections. And vibrant blue is a must-have color to be sporting in warmer weather that’s just around the corner. The Bianca Patent Satchel by Botkier in lustrous blue would be a wonderful addition as it’s perfectly fit for Spring and Summer. I love the patent leather because it adds not only style to the bag, but also shine to the gorgeous shade of blue. Also, what’s so fantastic about the leather is the quality since it is Italian lambskin. I’m not a fan of stiff patent leathers I’ve seen bags constructed of, though this blue hottie, however, is smooshy and crinkled.
The gold-toned hardware is a perfect match to this color, adding just enough sparkle to this piece and is a great alternative to silver. As for the structure of the bag, I really like the two pockets in the front and also the adorable extended tab with a golden twist closure. And not only can you carry it on your arm or in your hand but you can also fit it over your shoulder, which is a huge plus for me. But overall, I think both the style and quality are great and definitely live up to the price tag of $595.
