While browsing around on the Bloomingdales website the other day, I noticed that some new designers had been added to their handbag selection. Some of these designers (e.g. Jack Rabbit, Kara Ross, and Treesje) were ones I had heard of and written about before, despite the fact that some of them are relatively new to the world of handbags. However, there was also an unfamiliar face that stood out from the crowd. Introducing the Jenna Tote from a designer called Beirn (pronounced “burn”).
Intrigued by this gorgeous tote, I decided to do some investigating to see what I could learn about it and its designer. The Beirn Jenna Tote, like all bags from this designer, is constructed of genuine watersnake skin. The company, founded by a mother and her two daughters, was built on the idea of having luxury, durability and versatility all in one bag. But the Jenna Tote is more than just those things, it is also absolutely stunning! I love the simple styling and the wide range of rich colors (25 in all) that it comes in. Plus it comes with a pretty reasonable price tag. Normally, genuine snake skin runs in the quadruple digits.
The Beirn Jenna Tote measures 17.5″ x 14.5″ x 4.5″. It features a magnetic closure, double shoulder straps, and an ultra durable canvas lining. It retails for only $315. Find it at Shop Bloomingdales.com, where it is currently available in Hot Pink (shown) and Black.
End Note: This lovely tote bag was also featured on Sex in the City. Now how on Earth did I miss that?
