Brahmin Mini Asher Handbag Spring Accessory Essential for Women Who Appreciate Classic Style


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.

Bright hued Peonies of Spring,

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 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.

My go-everywhere Brahmin handbag,
Meet my own stylish and sturdy black Brahmin handbag that I received as a Vogue Influencer several seasons ago. This is a different style than the new Mini Asher Tote Melbourne. Yet, it is timeless and versatile, always in style and goes with me everywhere winter, spring, summer and fall.

That clever key chain holder has been a manicure saver,
Just within the last 8 months,whether traveling to Iceland for a family vacation, attending blogging conferences like BlogHer or participating in press events such as the recent Sony Austenland launch party, I was rarely seen without this bag in hand or over my shoulder.

Brahmin golden label,
Eventhough I use the black tote you see here practically every day, because of the impeccable materials and construction that Brahmin employs in all their products, it still looks almost new. So there's every reason to expect this bag will last into the next decade and, perhaps, beyond.
