It has been a long time since I acquired a new handbag. Not because I don’t know what styles are popular or I don’t love fashion, but I rarely have time to myself to shop. I am constantly writing fashion reviews or write-ups and articles for major glossies. I am surrounded by fashion. Some of the best of fashion and design in the world. Since I was a child, I have had a deep love and appreciation for fashion. But I rarely get a lot of free time to go shopping and when I do have some down time the last thing on earth I want to do is spend it in a boring department store. However, I needed a new handbag to carry me through autumn and winter. It had to be large and roomy inside to carry all of my necessities. And it also needed to be fashion forward and stylish. And as many of you know, I dread logos so of course my new handbag had to be logo-free.
I don’t mind spending money on a designer bag because I know the quality and material is outstanding. But I also have a limit to what I will spend. My handbags travel the world with me and that inevitably leads to wear and tear. Whether they are in front of me under a seat on a plane or next to my chair on the floor at a fashion show, my handbags are put through a lot. Any new handbag I chose needed to be durable and able to keep up with the demands of my job as a busy fashion editor. And it had to be able to hold my beloved laptop and iPad. I have to write a lot and I use both of those to type my reviews on a daily basis.
I’d read about PLIA Designs. They are a line of designer handbags, satchels, carryalls, and leather goods. One of their bestsellers is called the Reid courier satchel. I logged onto their beautiful website and ordered the satchel in Posey Street. It is a pretty green nylon twill with sleep bleack leather. It was the perfect color combination. The bottom is full leather. And the price was amazingly affordable. I couldn’t wait for my new PLIA Designs designer bag to arrive. Six days later, UPS delivered my new bag to my office. When taking my new handbag out of its sleeper bag, I could immediately smell its delicious leather. The craftsmanship up close was absolutely amazing. The interior was stunning. It contained an iPad pocket, two smartphone pockets, and even a leather credit card and ID holder. My laptop would definitely fit comfortably inside. I absolutely love my brand new PLIA Designs designer handbag. It is phenomenal. I will be telling all of my fashion friends about this amazing line.
