I am starting to drive myself a little bit mad thinking about how I'd like to have a leather purse for fall -- this pursuit of mine is endless! How many bags does one person truly need? How much fringe, how many studs?

I do love the Annie bag from Etsy seller renneslechateau. The leather she uses comes in such beautiful colours and buttery textures. Oh, and Julia has a lovely blog, too.

I am particularly interested in bags made from recycled leather: please tell me about your favourites!

  3. Jane: I love Ashley Watson too! I especially like that I can't identify what piece of clothing her leather came from, you know?

    Chad: An endorsement from you is really the best I can get! I'll start scraping together my pennies.
