I am very fortunate to be the recipient of an act of kindness by a wonderful and generous friend. Today I received a gorgeous Whisper To Me in Plum Crash leather as a Christmas gift.

I really love the bag; it is roomy enough to hold A4 papers and even a laptop in a case, but it does not look too big on my frame. The color is the most unusual I've seen, sometimes purple, sometimes burgundy and occasionally black. This is my first Belen Echandia bag, and I am very happy with it, plus downright amazed at the kindness and generosity of the person who gave it to me.

Here are a few pictures - I cannot capture the color well, but I tried my best. I prefer to wear it with the shorter shoulder strap, with the handles tucked in.

It's not the midi, I think the midi is smaller. This measures about 17" X 14". I am 5'6" tall.

And my friend is wonderful indeed!
