just like a little black dress, i would argue that a black handbag is a closet staple. i have had my eye out for the past year but never found one that was just right. it needed to be a substantial size, have a convertible crossbody strap, classic structured shape, and be made of quality leather. i kept coming up short until i found this handbag from ellen vicius. the brand is based out of portugal and is synonymous with quality and perfection; each piece is a work of art designed and made by experienced artisans. the details are manually worked, cut, stitched and manufactured, ensuring an excellent final result.
you have probably noticed it in nearly all of my pictures lately and that is because i cannot put it down and i do not plan to any time soon! check out the ellen vicius site to learn more about the brand and the husband + wife duo behind it, and take a peek at some of my other favorites like this satchel and this evening bag.
