Strathberry Nano Tote
I’ve been adding Strathberry handbags to my handbag collection ever since I spotted Kate Middleton wearing this well-made brand. What I love about the Strathberry Nano Tote bag is the simplicity in the design. It features a structured square design, gold chain strap, and the signature Strathberry gold bar across the top.
I’ve owned my Nano tote bag for a number of years. It’s extremely easy to style, holds all my essentials, and I get endless compliments on the bag when I wear it out.

Polene Paris Numéro Neuf Mini
Polene is a Parisian brand that has exploded in popularity worldwide over the last few years, and was I first spotted this brand in the hit Netflix show Emily in Paris. The Polene brand is notorious for releasing all their bag designs in basic neutral colors.
Polene Paris creates a lot of timeless pieces but my favorite piece they carry is the Numero Neuf mini. The Numero Neuf mini offers a unique dumpling design, can be worn by the handle or attachable cross body strap, and has magnetic strap closure. This bag is perfect for someone who is looking for a small bag that is easy to style, uses high quality calfskin leather, and is a timeless design that can be worn for years to come.

Demellier London The Nano Montreal
Demellier London is a quiet luxury brand that is made in Spain. This is the perfect brand to consider purchasing if you are looking for a brand that not many people carry. DeMellier does a great job explaining how and where they source their leather from which I appreciate the transparency.
They have a lot of beautiful bag, and I naturally gravitated toward the Nano Montreal. This bag is known for it’s structured rectangular shape, the two gold bars down the front of the bag, top handle, removable cross body strap and an open interior pocket. I’m a firm believer when a luxury brand adds gold hardware to their handbag it can be worn to formal or casual occasions and that is the case with the Demellier London The Nano Montreal bag.

Senreve Arie Belt bag
Senreve bags are known for being everyday luxury bags. The reason why Senreve is able to keep their luxury bags at an affordable price is they follow the direct to consumer model. Celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Jennifer Garner have been seen carrying these Senreve bags.
If you are thinking about purchasing a Senreve bag, I recommend purchasing the Senreve Arie belt bag. This bag is known for Senreve signature adjustable belt closure, leather material, and being made in Italy. What I love about the Senreve Arie Belt bag is all the different ways you can wear it. You can wear it as a belt bag, you can wear it as a shoulder bag, or you can purchase a chain strap to make it a more formal bag. This is a great investment piece that you can wear multiple different ways and to several different occasions.
