Heather's Couture Corner - Review of the Prada Saffiano Garden Tote

| BY Heather Kiely

If you are looking for a beautiful, well structured, light, and classic bag, the Prada Saffiano Garden Tote is your go to handbag. Measuring at 14" wide and 10 1/2" high with a depth of 6", it will carry all of your day to day essentials. The Saffiano Leather is probably my favorite feature of the Garden Tote because it is almost scratch proof. You can actually use this bag and not have it look old after a few months. The Saffiano leather also is study and stiff and keeps the Garden Tote's shape and integrity.

Now, let's say you love color! The Garden tote comes in a plethora of colors..... Pink, blue, caramel, orange, olive (love!!!) etc... When you are searching for your next bag, I am not sure if weight matters to you? I have such a hard time carrying a luxury tote that starts at 6 pounds. By the time I put my wallet, keys, lipstick, checkbook, and miscellaneous items in it, I am lugging around a 12 pound bag!!!

The Prada Saffiano Garden Tote is lined in their signature nylon with a few inner pockets. Now, I did have the Prada Saffiano Lux Tote, and it weighed a ton!!!! I actually sold it because I never used it due to its weight. My biggest advice when looking for a bag is to check out the weight and lining, and even though it may be gorgeous suede interior, you just added 3-4 unnessary pounds. All and all, I can't say enough positives about the Prada Garden Tote! I love the shiny gold details, the snaps that expand the bag, and the classy overall look. The only negative about this tote is the price!!!! Prada just raised this classic beauty to $2200 from its comfortable $1730. I was so mad when I saw this!!!! Blame the good economy! Ruins luxury shopping every time! When the economy tanked in 2008, designer bags were at an all time low! They were begging people to buy them:)
