One of the places i used to get a lot of bags was Clothes Mentor. A bag i got at the Anderson location years ago was a Linea Pelle perforated black leather bag that i finally gave away because it was too heavy. I decided to search for the brand on Poshmark, and I found this similar shaped bag for a reasonable price and thought i’d be good with the replacement. Sometimes you can’t substitute one thing for another. This is one of those times.
This cute olive satchel has a zipper closure along with a hook thingy. Y’all i don’t remember what it’s called, but you can see it in the middle of the two outer snap pockets. The close-up picture shows the true color. Very smooth and soft leather, butter zippers, and cotton lining.
If you’re interested in this lovely bag, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, and bag 8: Linea Pelle.
Ok, here’s a cautionary tale about buying stuff from Poshmark. You are really taking a leap of faith, and while you do have some protections as a buyer and as a seller, folks can get one over on you if you don’t pay attention. AND, if an item is very inexpensive, trust that there is likely something the seller isn’t showing you in the pictures. Buyer beware as they say.
Linea Pelle is a brand of bags with incredibly soft leather. They also have perforated styles, which I love. It’s got some typical wear from usage, like bottom corner wear. There’s a mark on the bottom that no one will see unless you hold it up to someone. I love yellow and it looks great with this taupe/cream color. Very roomy and would hold a 13″ laptop.
If you’re interested in bag 15, email me at email@example.com with your name, your address, and bag 15. Peace. This is yesterday’s bag so one more today to get caught up. Sunday is a feast day so back on Monday with bag 17.
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.
Found this bag at Clothes Mentor and got it even though it’s heavy. I could not resist the perforated leather. You can zip and unzip without having to hold anything. Next time you unzip your anything, ask yourself: did I have to use my other hand to get it done. By linea pelle.
