One question I get all the time from readers, or even random passer-bys, is about my handbags or shoes. I am a big believe in investing in classic pieces that stand out and can make your outfit. In fact, you will typically see me in an inexpensive maxi dress while carrying a bag that is, well, not-so inexpensive all summer long! I am so thrilled to finally start sharing bag (& perhaps in the future shoes) reviews! I will make sure to hit bags of all price points! Thinking of reviewing this affordable ‘it’ bag next.
The bag I get asked about the most is my red Prada Medium Saffiano. This baby happens to also be my all time favorite designer bag I own. She definitely cost me a pretty penny (I saved up for months) but she was worth every one of those pretty pennies. But it is worth noting you can get a Prada Saffiano under $1000 (even under $500 sometimes) on discount sites. I’ve had my eye on this classic one for awhile (under $1000!).
- Saffiano calfskin leather.
- Golden hardware.
- Double tote handles with rings, 5″ drop.
- Expandable snap sides.
- Leather triangle with metal logo lettering.
- Hanging covered key ring.
- Inside, one zip pocket and two slips.
- 9″H x 13″W x 5 1/2″D; weighs approx. 2lbs.
- Made in Italy.
Note that my bag is several years old so the newer seasons have gotten an upgrade (that I’m totes jeally of)… double zippers lining the top!
Wear and Tear:
When I say this bag is durable I mean this thing has been put through hell. Tossed around, held heavy objects, rained on, etc. I have yet to see a scratch on it (..and I am very rough with my bags. Hell, I paid for a designer bag it better last. Right?!). The next Prada I am dyyyinnggggg for is this unbelievable beauty that basically has my name written all over it.
How to Style your Prada Medium Saffiano:
Unfortunately I only have this beauty in red, but I have had no issues styling her casual or dressy. (click on image to see full post)
