If there’s one thing becoming a mother taught me, it’s that all purses are not created equal. I have a fairly extensive purse collection, but that’s because different occasions really do require different bags! And no matter what type of bag I need on any given day, I want it to be high quality, fashionable and original. So when MEIDUM gave me the chance to review its gorgeous leather LIZZY purse, I was pretty excited. MEIDUM offers handcrafted leather bags in a variety of styles created in beautiful Bedford, Nova Scotia. This hobo bag looked like it would be perfect for a “day bag” when I had plans to be out of the house a fair bit and I was eager to put it to the test.
The purse arrived just before the boys and I left for North Dakota and I decided to bring it along to use during the day. One of the things I noticed first about this purse was its Cognac colour. I have to admit, the reddish-brown shade is not one that I would have chosen on my own when buying a purse, but the rich colour of leather was both beautiful and versatile when I saw it in person. It went well with almost all my outfits and is definitely one of those timeless colours that will look great for years to come.
