I've loved the classic Brahmin handbag brand since their beginnings in 1982, even before the company reinvented itself to reach out to the next generation of young women. The colors and styles for spring this year are enough to get us moms and daughters out of the winter doldums and are so on trend for the warmer season ahead. Among my favorite fashion bag picks for Spring 2014 is the beautiful Mini Asher Tote Melbourne by Brahmin in the prettiest spring-like fuchsia pink shade of Peony.

This exquisite genuine cowhide leather bag is textured to resemble crocodile and is not only lovely to look at and use -- with style details such as the iconic golden plate label and the regal chain tassles accent. It's perfectly sized at 11.5" wide x 7.5" tall x 4.0" deep, making neither too big or too small. I especially like the metal feet that protect this handbag from excessive wear and tear on the bottom paving the way for years of enjoyment.

The bag to own this season is also engineered with the same immaculate attention to details, quality and function, that has been a hallmark of Brahmin since the company's founding. Thoughtful features like the small zip top, sparkling hardware, adjustable hand and shoulder straps, and my favorite accoutrement: the in-bag clip so you'll always be able to pull out your keys without digging through your purse and ruining your fresh manicure.
Available in Peony as well as Black, Dolce and Pecan, if you are looking for a high return on your investment (ROI), the Mini Asher Tote Melbourne is the must-have accessory for work and play this spring. $225 and available at Brahmin.com and in the brand's shops. Also may be purchased at fine department stores nationwide including Dillard's, Nordstrom, Belk, Von Maur, Macy's and Lord & Taylor.
