I've written about Proenza Schouler's PS1 bag more times than I can count and I always say...the RIGHT handbag can make you feel great! I was lucky enough to be handed down the grey suede PS1 by my daughter who discarded it as she moved on to the next "it" bag.

Mulberry’s Inspired "Proenza" is Eh!

P00028238-PS1-MEDIUM-VELOURSLEDER-TASCHE-STANDARD
