BW: Tell me a little about your bag! From far away I thought I spotted a Lanvin.
Gretchen: It is! It’s a Lanvin tassel tote. I love the color – aubergine – it goes with everything. I also own the same bag in black.
BW: What else do you like about the bag?
Gretchen: The tote comes with a pouch and I think it’s really useful. But even without the pouch, the tote fits most everything. I also really like the feet at the bottom of the bag. I think it helps with the wear and tear.
BW: Is there anything you dislike?
Gretchen: There isn’t an interior pocket on the side of the tote. But the additional pouch does make up for that so it’s not a huge problem.
