There are times when you want it soft and tender, and other times you need it hard and rough.
We are, of course, talking about handbags.
Satisfy your fickle desires with B.May Bags, a line constructed from textured leathers like cowhide, goat- and sheepskin, python, and ostrich.
For day, over-the-shoulder bucket messengers and little strappy pouches come in muted colors and are simple and smooshy. Nighttime brings solid but sweet clutches and fold-over, tuck-under-your-arm styles.
But the leather lunch sack, an open tote with two long straps, may be our favorite.
What? We hate beating around the bush.
