I stumbled across a lovely blog about handbags and purses, clarabellanyc.com. In scrolling through, I saw a gorgeous bag by a designer I had never heard of, Modus Rio by Basically Brazil. Here are two of Sara's bags (these are the two I plan to buy). Her bags are in the $300 range. Anyway, just wanted to share. The purple looks like suede, but is actually a distressed leather. The burgundy patent, I think, is yummy. I liked these and thought I would share.
