I was very happy to see this BCBG leather handbag while shopping in the mall on Saturday. It meets all the requirements I need for a handbag for traveling. I am not tall enough to carry a large bag but really needed one that has enough room to travel while still fashionable for sightseeing or shopping. The size of this handbag is just right for me. It comes with short handles and an adjustable shoulder strap. I especially like the metal chains on it. It gives a modern feel to it. The shoulder strap in this picture was shorten and hit above my hip, which is good for me:
It is important for me that the handbag also has a zipper pocket on the outside so that I can retrieve my passport and other ID conveniently. It is also great that it has a zipper closure on top so that things will not fall out of the handbag if I accidentally drop it.
I also like the fact that it's light-weight and fashionable enough to go out without packing an extra handbag in the suitcase. This also comes in black. The picture here shown the strap was extended:
It seems the white looks better for this handbag. I think I will most likely get the white one since I usually travel in the summer. I didn't get the handbag because it wasn't on sale. Hopefully, it will be on sale the next time I go shopping again.
