Hug Me Original Matte Leather Chocolate
16 Sep 2009
I've always been a shoulder bag kind of girl but as soon as I saw the Hug Me on the website, I knew my money was in trouble! If you are contemplating adding this bag to your collection, here's why I think it's a good idea:
This is one of the best styles to showcase BE's fantastic leathers. The style is simple with minimal hardward and when you see it drape down into what I call its lucky bean shape, you will love it. The bag is really comfortable to carry in the hand or the crook of the elbow and has super comfortable rolled handles.
The 3 compartments make organising your goodies a breeze. I normally carry stuff that I want easily to hand in either of the outer snap closure pockets (sunglasses, lipbalm etc) and my passport, money etc in the more secure central zipper compartment. You'd be amazed at what can fit in this bag!
The chocolate matte leather is substantial without being too thick or heavy. The Hug Me in this leather probably isn't the lightest of BE's options, but I've never had a problem carrying it and I put a lot in my bags. The chocolate matte breaks down beautifully and reaches a lovely "smoosh" factor. Did I mention the divine mahogany undertones that mean this isn't a "flat" colour? Wait till you see it in the sun. You can't go wrong with this bag!
