I have not put this Rib & Hull Heirloom tote down since I received it (I mean, why would you?).  I had been a long time admirer of Alexandra and Rafal’s bags ever since I spotted them on Pinterest, so when Alex offered to send me a bag of my choice, I was jumping up and down! I’m a leather tote fanatic and the Heirloom tote is my absolute favorite silhouette and size (I prefer my totes to be wider than they are tall). As I’m sure you can tell from photos, this bag is absolutely beautiful. It’s well made, spacious, and just the perfect everyday tote. For reference, it has a lot more structure to it than my Cuyana tote and is less red than the photos show. You’ll be able to tell it’s true color in later post as I’m sure you’ll be seeing this stunner a whole lot.

    Great outfits..:) I ended up buying the Cuyana in caramel and as much as I love it, it is very floppy. I keep staring at your Rib & Hull and wondered if it was as comfortable to wear over the shoulder as the Cuyana. I see you posting with the R&H usually over your forearm and I’m an *ouch* after awhile with forearm bags. Do you see yourself reaching for one more than the other?
