PRADA Plum Metallic Leather Top Tote
Yes, I know that the violet hued handbag has been a hot topic for quite some time now, so I promised myself that this will be the last â€œpurpleâ€ handbag I talk about or at least until the phase is over this season. I personally admire purple-toned handbags, but I canâ€™t give into buying one, reasons being, Iâ€™m not brave enough to try a bold splash of color. I fear neglecting the poor thing over the common dark handbag. I spotted this Prada today over at BlueFly (listed on Nina Garciaâ€™s Luxe List), and I like it! I love how clean the look is, itâ€™s not busy at all yet it still carries attention grabbing details such as the signature Prada logo and dangling tags. Back to the color, I feel itâ€™s pretty versatile since it isnâ€™t exactly a set shade of plum. I can see how the hue may vary (appearance wise) with whatever article of clothing you wear at the time of use. Overall, the color is great; the $1,276 price tag is steep but reasonable for this piece of luxury, and I donâ€™t think you could ever go wrong with a grained leather Prada bag? Love this piece?
