One of my favorite handbags of all time is the Louis Vuitton “Retro” bag. It was released when the Cherry Blossom and Eye Love collections were released in 2003. I wanted it so bad in the Pink Cherry Blossom but I was only 17 then, and it was kind of hard to convince my Mother I needed a bag that cost over $1,000. I never got the chance to get one but it still remains on my wish list.
When I spotted the Sara Berman “Kelly” Mini Tote my mouth dropped! It was literally the Louis Vuitton “Retro” in a smaller version and in a different color. I loved it, finally my dream bag was available in black and much more affordable.
What I like more about the “Kelly” is that is features a zipper under the flap, whereas the “Retro” doesn’t. Another plus about the “Kelly” is that it’s black! Black goes with everything and pretty much dominates my wardrobe so this is a bag I can use everyday and will go with everything I won. The “Retro” only came in Brown/Pink, Pink/Pink, and Red/Yellow so it would of been very hard to match those colors up with anything I own but the bag is still gorgeous regardless.
Overall, the “Kelly” by Sara Berman is a beautiful and classic bag that will make any handbag collection look a little more classier. A+ in my book!
You can purchase the Sara Berman “Kelly” at Shop Bop for $352 (was 504).
