I worked on a review with San Antonio Shoemaker’s last summer on a pair of their Sanibel Sandals. Here it is a year later and I still love them, from the summery orange to the comfort they provide.
Well, SAS recently reached out for me to review their new style of handbag called the Jackie in Orange Perf (MSRP $240). At first, when I saw it online, I was skeptical that I would like such a bold color choice. I normally go for neutrals, so the animal print handle against an orange purse seemed like a wild choice for me.
The four circles are the hidden magnets that keep the handbag closed. They are strong too, no worries about your items falling out if the handbag tips over.
The Jackie is made from perforated real Italian leather, just the outside offers the perforated design though. You can see the thickness of the material.
The inside is fully lined with “full grain pigskin.” The inside is smaller than what I normally carry around (I do have 3 kids!) but it is large enough to carry all your essentials for your big date night or night out on the town!
Once I received the handbag, my opinion did change! I LOVE the summery color, even my husband said that it is very stylish and sophisticated. This is definitely a handbag that I would use on a special occasion and feel confident doing so!
While the hardware is imported from Italy, the handbag itself is made right here in the U.S.A. The Jackie is available in 13 other stunning colors including prints, textured and solids. So, what’s your favorite?
