Eons ago, the darling Shari asked for some ideas on an everyday bag that would work well with a western outfit. Knowing her personally, there were a few options that jumped out at me as being chic enough to compliment her style, but with the quality and functionality I know she appreciates.
Clockwise from top left:
1) The leather used for this bag is gorgeous – I love the warm tone, and the grain. The whipstitch detail adds a western flair without being too much so.
2) This is an impact piece that I know for certain Shari can pull off. It’s available in more neutral tones, but I like it in turquoise to add a little punch.
3) Even in the photo, you can tell how soft this leather is. And the colour! So beautiful. I like the size of this bag, and its basic simplicity with the visual interest of the fringe.
4) I just don’t think you can go wrong with a solid-coloured, hair-on tote. The shape is sophisticated, but the hide makes it innately cowgirl.
