Handbags are one of the hardest items to shop for. I think that it is especially true when on the hunt for a practical, yet stylish but also luxurious, yet affordable bag. See the dilemma?
Blair Ritchey is a handbag designer based out of Cleveland and specializes in functional luxury, meaning she designs and hand makes all handbags and other leather goods with practicality and quality in mind.
I own the Mini Penn Carryall in black and am LOVING it. Despite its “Mini” callout, this bag is the most spacious one I own. With several interior and exterior pockets in addition to the main storage, this bag effortlessly houses all my essentials and then some. I love how it looks classic and chic, and can easily be transformed into a crossbody or backpack for absolute versatility.
My essentials include a cosmetic pouch, wallet, keys, phone, Altoids, breakfast bar, and even a water bottle when placed horizontally. The material is breathable and forgiving, and has a zip closure with gold lock for extra security. Each Penn Carryall bag has a green leather loop as the most precious detail and perfectly compliments the cloth material lining the bag.
If you’re on the hunt for a practical and luxurious bag, this collection of handbags is worth consideration.
