Does anyone recall a little company called Laudi Vidni? If you are a regular Bag Bliss reader, then you probably remember a review I did about the company’s website and ordering process (if you don’t remember, you can check it out here!). And I bet you all have been wondering what the heck happened with that! Haha! Well, let me tell you, it has been quite an adventure! Not long after writing my review, I decided to order the Pavan Satchel in the Storm premium leather. So what exactly happened with that? Long story short, I hated the bag once I got it! Remember the ruching at the top of the bag that I “absolutely adored”? It turned out that the leather was actually threaded onto a stiff metal rod (think curtain rod) in order to achieve the look. Needless to say, the bag was very awkward against the side of my body. So what did I do? I returned it, of course! Lucky for me, the ladies there at Laudi Vidni were very understanding. Now just throw in a trip abroad and an extremely hectic Spring semester at school and.. ta-da! An explanation for the huge time lapse! But, hey, better late than never! Right?
So after much consideration, I finally settled on the Brio Clutch to replace my Pavan Satchel! It is chic, simple, and sophisticated. Plus the square turnlock clasp looks so cool in the picture. For the body of the clutch, I chose the Silver Croc premium leather. As for the contrasting stripe, I went with the Metallic Patent Indigo. And the panel on the turnlock? I thought the Smooth Grain Canal added a nice little touch! Once I had made my selections, I eagerly placed my order and waited for my new Brio Clutch to arrive on my doorstep!
And… here… it… is!
