You might decide that this legendary leather cut-out bag belongs on display in the safety of your home - and we wouldn't blame you! The exterior is a hardware studded field of fantastic flowers in a variety of colors and textures, and that's something worth appreciating.

If you decide you're ready to hit the road with the bag, though, the woven pouch insert will carry your goods and keep those flowers from getting banged up. It has snaps to hold it in place and a fetching design of its own for when it's in the public eye. And, speaking of flowers, you'll also get a finely detailed flower key chain to complete this bag's all-out-charm attack.
