Barr + Barr Kelly Green Lizard Handbag Review

I’m officially a handbag addict and nothing pleases more than a finely-crafted piece of arm candy that makes a great first impression. That’s why I was thrilled when Barr + Barr  Handbags gave me the opportunity to review this gorgeous Kelly Green Whipstitch Tote. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you already know that emerald green is Pantone’s color of the year and that is another reason why this bag is so perfectly on trend for summer.

I’ve had this bag for a few weeks now and wanted to use it for a bit before I reviewed it. While the bag is far from boring, I wanted to see how it fits into my lifestyle as a Social Media Manager and Blogger on the go.  I’m happy to note that it’s quite versatile and is great for work, as well as after hours.  Hand made from luxurious leather, what I love about the bag is that it’s a total head turner and looks pretty high end. I love accessorising and this bag does add that little extra something to any outfit; easy summer chic.  I recently went on a road trip from NYC to Montreal and the Kelly tote was a must have on my packing list.

Here’s why:

  • This purse is a great size: not too large and yet not too small and it can easily fit all my essentials like an iPad, phone, some makeup, sunglasses and sundries.

Love the emerald green!
  • The bag comes with an extra strap, which enables me to carry it in two ways – as a tote, and a crossbody.

Easy summer chic!
  • It also has a key fob and removable leather tassel, but one of my favorite features is the signature New York graffiti inspired inner love letter lining:
