Handbag Heaven: Sissi Rossi

I've been admiring Sissi Rossi bags for a long time, so when I stepped into Harvey Nichols in Dundrum last weekend and spotted a few from their Autumn/Winter 07-08 collection on sale at 75% off, I stopped, caught like a rabbit in the headlights. Made of the softest, squishiest buffalo leather, these bags are luxurious, but designed to be worn and loved - the leather will just get better age.

After some wavering, I eventually settled on this gorgeous stone grey one. With sturdy handles and a long strap, it is versatile and can be carried or worn on your shoulder or across the body. It is also fairly voluminous, so I'll be able to carry my life around with me on a daily basis, as usual.

Check out more Sissi Rossi bags online or in Harvey Nichols.

Harvey Nichols Summer Sale

I picked up a lovely Sissi Rossi bag in the sale at Harvey Nichols in Dundrum today (more on which later). Most stores are coming to the end of their sales, but there were quite few bargains to be had in Harvey Nichols - including this fab Sasha handbag from Botkier in silver snake at only €250. Run, don't walk...
