If I had a handful of extra Benjamins lying around, I would happily throw them at a Mansur Gavriel leather bucket bag. In Cammello with Antico lining, please and thank you.

It was love at first sight when I spied this beauty on Pinterest a few months ago. It’s perfectly simple and elegant; one of those bags you can carry for decades that only gets better with age.

The women behind the up-and-coming brand, Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel, came together in 2012 to create a line of high quality, timeless bags for ‘real women’ at mid-range pricing. Their vegetable tanned leather creations are an investment, with prices ranging from $350-600, but they’re made to last with leather that patinas to well-worn perfection over time.

It’s pretty tough to get your hands on one — they’re selling out as soon as they hit retailers’ shelves and there are waiting lists involved — so I have plenty of time to sell some extra flowers to save up for it. ;-)

In the meantime, here are some great leather bucket bags you can add to your spring wardrobe right now!

  2. Some artists will argue that the medium chosen for the foto schilderijen is the most important aspect; while others will debate that the proper amount of shading is more important.
    Well it is half correct since certainly there is a limit when it comes to size but, the maximum size
    is capable of making any drawing room in the world to be proud of.

  4. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  21. OMGG! I love the brown one you have pictured. I like a larger bucket bag, the smaller ones…not so much.
