I’m pretty smitten with this bag from local designer Marian Paquette. For starters, how can you not swoon over the rich shades of Italian silk velvet? They’re gorgeous.
With an excellent eye for color and a keen attention to detail, Paquette creates these and other lovely bags that I fell for the first time I spotted one. This is the Liette, which I simply love. It looks just as good with jeans as it does with a little black dress making it the perfect day to night bag. The versatility along with its light weight and compact design make it a must for travel too. I’ve been wearing mine in slate blue crushed velvet, as a clutch or with the accompanying gold chain, and I’ve already got my eye on a couple of other colors like the caramel with a gold mesh pull chain and the gorgeous green.
