Giorgio Brato Handbags - HELP!

  1. Okay Ladies!

    I'm thinking about purchasing a Giorgio Brato bag today. It is kind of pricey but super cute and the shape seems perfect for my needs. I haven't seen one IRL so that is my only hesitation. Does anyone own one of these bags? How do they hold up? What are your thoughts?

    THANKS!!
     
  2. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica][SIZE=-1]I have a Giorgio Brato 604 in Bronze [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica][SIZE=-1](pictured below) [/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica][SIZE=-1]from The Purse Store and love it. It's eye-catching, relatively light-weight and can carry a lot -- one day I even fit a pizza box into the main compartment! Of course it was in a plastic wrapper...

    I had previously ordered the 604 in Ginseng Sofa from Shop Bop but returned it -- its hand-painted "distressed" effect was achieved to such an extent that DH thought it had really been dragged through the streets and picked up from a trash pile somewhere.

  3. I saw Giorgio Brato bag and the leather looks soft and it has a cute shape...
     
  4. The Ginseng Sofa bag is the exact one I'm considering! It's on sale and I have a promo code for an additional 20%off... Not a good color?
     
  5. The color just wasn't for me -- it was more yellow than gold in real life, and I'm more fond of the latter color. The Bronze has a better sheen to it. They're both very unique however, because of their hand-painted designs. Hope this helps!
     
  6. Your bronze one is beautiful! I don't think that color is available anymore... I guess since they are hand-painted they will all be a bit different... Maybe I will buy it and cross my fingers that I get a more golden one (I'm not a huge fan of yellow handbags)... If not... I guess I can always return it...

    THANKS for the feedback!

  14. ^^ Yeah it was MissNovember's photos that made me take the plunge! I'm lucky she didn't put me on "ignore" for the never ending PMs about this bag... I even copied her and got myself a cute little lace scarf that I tie on sometimes! :lol:
     
  15. Doesn't it look totally cute?!! I really like how it kind of balances out the 'ruggedness' of the bag. :tup: I love this bag so much that I'd love to find the Bronze color someday too!! :girlsigh:
