Barbara Rihl bag with cockatoo
A friend of mine recently returned from Paris and brought me the cutest Barbara Rihl bag above. This brand is new to me, but apparently not a new brand, with fans such as Kate Middleton, Emma Watson and Mick Jagger, and I'm now a little obsessed. Many of the bags have a travel theme and are decorated accordingly. The bag my friend chose for me has a cockatoo on it, because I have a real live cockatoo. The bags are fun and whimsical and many, like mine, are convertible from a clutch to a handheld to a cross body. I've never had a bag that comes with two distinct detachable straps before, so that's pretty cool. I also love the packaging that has a lot of attention to detail. Here's the web site if you want to take a closer look: www.barbararihl.com .
My Barbara Rihl gift deconstructed: Shopping bag, box,
bag itself, protective plastic pouch and two straps.
Presentation is so important...here's the box the bag came in.
I love the zippered protective pouch, which could even
be used as a make up pouch on it's own!
As soon as it stops raining here in New York, my new bag and I are going out on the town!
