Shopping at Clothes Mentor always teaches me something. I’d never heard of Linea Pelle until I looked up the brand while considering whether or not to buy this purse. Once I zipped and unzipped the zippers a few times and finally stopped touching this supersoft leather, I decided it was worth the $14 they were asking. Plus, I love perforated bags. Period.
Today I checked online an found this bag in cognac on Poshmark for $70. You can find others on Amazon ranging from $198-$245, unless you want vegan.
I love everything about this bag except one thing. It’s heavy. I have some physical issues that require me to lighten my load. The only way I can do that with this bag is to take off the shoulder strap and carry it like a satchel. That means I don’t use it as often as I’d like. But maybe I can carry it around the house.
This Coach bag might be a fake, but if it is, it’s an excellent one. I remember when I bought it at Goodwill, I went though all the checks, and it seemed to pass. The leather feels really amazing. The tag checked out. The stitching is tight. There aren’t any zippers, but all of the closures look legit. I really hate fakes for myself, but I understand. No judgement. This bag is really heavy so I don’t carry it often. But when I do, it’s amazing. After I bought this, I gave three Coach bags away. I gave another one away this year. This is the last one in my collection. Handle bags are my weakness.
Linda Pelle bag that I don’t use as much as I would because it’s too heavy. But I can’t part ith it because it’s got so many of my favorite qualities: soft, pebbled, perforated leather; bushed silver hardware, butter zipper. Here’s a bit more about it from the past. I did enjoy carrying it, but – it’s heavy. I have a cervical (back) issue where I really shouldn’t carry these gorgeous bags. I even took off the strap!
