Marni's reversible dark-brown leather and shearling tote @ $1185 is the perfect weekend carryall. Team this ultra-versatile style with denim or a great maxi dress.
Marni's handbags are always impeccable they are well constructed, and the leathers are butter soft, I always find that Marni's bags are well worth the money.

This is such a great piece that I love and can be worn with a t-shirt, legging and riding boots; and because I am pairing it off with the ultimate maxi dress it will give you the urban downtown chic look.
