Paulina Carcach {giveaway}


Founded in 2008 Paulina Carcach offers a wide selection of unique and handcrafted items, every handbag and accessory that is personally designed.

Paulina began working with her favourite material leather in 2000, when she decided to start making her own handbags. Paulina's vision for her label is to create handbags that are both luxurious and wearable, with a beautiful feminine touch. Paulina strives to make her handbags timeless and luxurious, modern but never cold.



I have a question for everyone...have you ever owned a leather handbag? I have not, well, that is until just about two weeks ago. Without a doubt, I was offered a fantastic opportunity when Paulina Carcach contacted me about a review on Country Mouse, City Mouse. After hours spent drooling over the many available choices of handbags on her website, I finally made a choice for review.

Meet my new (and first ever) leather handbag...The Isabella Lambskin Hobo Bag.

As with all the handbags from Paulina Carcach, the style of The Isabella is classic, a handbag which I will be able to carry for years to come. I choose burgundy for my colour choice, as I thought it would great for all four seasons.

When The Isabella arrived at my doorstep, I tore into the package to immediately smell the unmistakable smell of leather. I could breath in this bag all day long. Besides the amazing smell of genuine leather, I was smitten with the buttery soft feel of the handbag. So far all I had done was open the package and pull the bag out and I was already experiencing the difference of leather.

The Isabella has gold hardware, with buckles on the side and the designers logo on the front. The opening has a golden zipper pull as well as a snap at the closure. The gold is a gorgeous accent for the bag and adds to it's classic design.

Inside, The Isabella is fully lined and has great pockets on both sides of the bag, which I love for small item storage. The Isabella is an ample sized handbag, which is a great thing when one has three kids that are always asking me to hold things for them. An added bonus (which I love) was the matching key fob that came with the handbag.



I couldn't be more in love with The Isabella and proud to carry it. I know it looks fabulous and I love carrying it around getting compliments. And, you know, even though it is a mid-sized bag it doesn't seem bulky or heavy at all. I can tell that The Isabella is built to last and will cherish this handbag for years to come.

You can visit Paulina Carcach at her web-store or on Etsy. At both, you will find a large selection of handmade handbags made from the finest leather in a great selection of colours.
