Love this necklace to death! The chain has tarnished (toothpaste couldn’t save this one), but it can easily be replaced.
I can’t believe I almost didn’t get this bag! Did I tell you that story?…
Well, I was in one of my favorite “search & find the gem” stores; T.J.Maxx. I did not own a black leather bag at the time. All my bags were brown to match my brown shoes.
Anywhoo…the gold hardware called out to me, and I’m not really a gold girl. I picked it up, and it was the most luscious leather bag I’d ever felt. I then looked inside for a label, as I was curious where it was made. Romania.
I’d never heard of Abro before, so I went back to work & googled the brand. Very few review search results came up, but I found the company website. I was SO excited, I could see “my” bag online & T.J.’s price tag was just a fraction of it!!!
Because I am a “stalker-type shopper”, I went back to the store the next day to look at it again, and I think I did the same thing the day after that.
The hardware held me back. Every time I looked at it, it felt too bold for me to carry around…and yet, I couldn’t stop thinking about it!
Later that week
concerned that someone else would snatch up my first serious black bag (only 1 in-store), I went back & purchased it.
I actually bought another quality, cross-body, black leather bag that same day, with the intention of returning one after further consideration.
That one was super plain & kinda looked like a “man bag”. Thinking about it now, I know I made the right choice.
