Make Me Smile Sheen Wine
The Belen Echandia Make Me Smile in Wine sheen leather is the latest addition to my collection. Why I waited so long to try this bag is beyond me! The Make Me Smile is currently a top favorite with my Rock Me. And the wine sheen leather is gorgeous. It has a rich tone to it...think raspberries instead of strawberries.
All of Belen Echandia's leathers have their own unique traits and the sheen is no exception. It is incredibly soft, literally smooshes into a puddle, and I love that the 'sheen' adds just a bit of class to it. It wears incredibly well and makes me feel like I can dress it up a bit more - if I want - because of the glossy finish.
The front zippered pocket of the Make Me Smile is wider than other BE styles I have tried thus far. I really like it because I can carry my iPhone while still having room for lists, keys, or an additional random item or two. The extra size also makes it so I can get my hand in without scratching on the zipper. There are two things that stand out to me as favorites with the Make Me Smile. First, when I can carry it on my shoulde, I can have one strap on my shoulder and let the other fall off while digging in it. I LOVE not having to remove it from my shoulder to access items...very handy when I have one or two children in tow.
While this bag is not as flat as other BE bags, I find it comfy worn messenger. The MMS is not too deep and thus, you can easily access what you need with ease.
