I bet you didn’t know that Best Buy Canada carries designer handbags for every occasion. They asked me to try this Franco Sarto bag and discuss my thoughts in a blog article. I’ve always known Italian designer label, Franco Sarto as a shoe brand. However, the same sophisticated fashion meets wearability I’ve come to love in their footwear is also available in a beautiful line of handbags.


FrancoSartoHeadToeShot1Some bags are seasonal or have a very specific use, like straw bags for summer and evening clutches for fancy parties. I think the type of handbag you carry says a lot about your personality but I also think a good bag needs to match your lifestyle. For me, the “everyday bag” is the one I covet because it’s the bag that takes me all throughout my day.




This Franco Sarto satchel has all the proper features that I want in an everyday handbag and the pastel lilac hue is perfect for spring and summer. Its tote-like shape allows me to carry all the stuff I need for my day to day, like my cheque-book wallet, makeup bag, small notebook and an average sized novel. Even with all this, I’m also able to fit either my iPad or my 11-inch MacBook air with ease.

It features an interior pocket with a secure zipper, slim double handles and an additional outside zippered pocket for easy access for things like my mobile phone and car keys. Its simple magnetic closure makes it easy to get in and out of the bag.


Although I typically prefer leather bags, this particular bag is made from PVC (sometimes called pleather), making it lightweight to tote around and also spill proof. As a new mom, this comes in handy since I can easily wipe off a coffee or food spill in a cinch. The black and white patterned cotton lining adds a nice feminine touch to the design. All in all, it’s sophisticated and feminine yet casual enough to pair with blouses, tees and my favorite jeans.

Whether I’m off to brunch with my friends or shopping for groceries, this Franco Sarto satchel fits my daily lifestyle.
