You guys know all about the bag I designed with Gigi New York, but recently I received it in tan and white and I’ve been carrying it every single day- not just because it’s my own design but because it’s the perfect size for my lifestyle. And the colors are spot on for summer outfits- case in point, it is the only bag I brought on my trip to The Greenbrier this summer.

Check it out!

Dressed up or dressed down it works with just about everything.

A lot of you have asked if the handles fit over your shoulder- here’s a pic to show you how it fits! I carry it this way most of the time- it’s snug, but nice to have handles that look good looped over your forearm OR over your shoulder.

And here’s a peek into the bags being made in the GiGi New York factory in New York. I love that this bag is made in the United States and employs US workers.  I was delighted to get a message from someone who bought a bag and had this to say about it:

I just wanted to tell you how much I love my Gates satchel. It arrived yesterday and I am really impressed with the craftmanship for the price. I am a lover of high end purses and I am thrilled to see that Gigi NY offers an equally stylish and well made product. Thanks!





And GUESS WHAT??? I get to give away a bag to one of you!!! The winner can pick whichever colorway they want too! What could be better than that?  All you have to do is leave a comment below listing which bag you would pick and I will select a winner on WEDNESDAY JULY 30th!
