I have always loved Gryson handbags. I think it was my Gryson Skye Satchel that got me hooked on the designer. But recently, Gryson handbags seem to have fallen off the face of the planet. What the heck happened? Oddly enough, there doesn’t seem to be a lack of Olivia Harris handbags out there. This is Joy Gryson’s other handbag line, which is named after her daughter. It is known for being a little younger and edgier than the original line. How Olivia Harris compares to Gryson, I don’t know. But after seeing the Olivia Harris by Joy Gryson Oversized Collar Stud Messenger, I am definitely eager to find out!
What do I find attractive about this bag? For one, messenger satchels are HOT! This piece has all the features of a messenger satchel that most people find appealing. The semi-structured shape, the flap closure, the strap/buckle detail… everything. Plus it has something that you don’t see too often with this style. Rich, pebbled leather! It looks so yummy and it gives this piece a little bit more of a casual feeling. I think it would make a great, everyday handbag and a cornerstone to a casual wardrobe. Carry it in hand or on your shoulder, this is one versatile piece!
