This is THE bag…
The bag that satisfies all your needs (style, function, designer quality) without having to sacrifice a things AND without paying over $1000! Let me explain why I’ve been obsessed with this Senreve Maestra bag and finally caved and got it…

First things first…it’s gotta look good! Handbags are no longer just a satchel to hold all of our junk, but a real outfit accessory. Women all over the world spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on these puppies, so there’s got to be a reason why! The Maestra is made from premium, Italian leather and is both scratch and water proof. This bag is crazy sturdy but looks delicate and soft. I also love that Senreve is a San Francisco based company that was started by two entrepreneurial ladies…love it!
(Btw, how cute is this dress by Suki and Solaine?? This is my definition of a perfect spring dress: lightweight, comfortable, easy to wear, and textured. I’ve had this dress on repeat since I got it-pop in on during the day for work, and then throw on some fun heels and earrings at night! )
Secondly, a handbag needs to be functional. Even though I’ve totally fallen victim to looks over substance, I’m at the age now (27 today!) that I force myself to spend money on smart investments. While many designer purses are drop dead gorgeous, they sometimes lack the right compartments, ability to zip, sturdiness or resistance to the elements. The Maestra has a specific compartment for your laptop, zip section for safe keepings, and 6 pockets for all your little gadgets. AND it zips completely up to keep everything from falling out! Genius.
And lastly, my favorite part of this drool-worthy bag is it’s versatility. The Maestra can be hand held, worn over the shoulder, or as a back pack! Because I pile my laptop, planners, books, wallet, etc. in my purse, I love to distribute the weight and wear as a backpack while I’m out working; there’s nothing worse than lugging a heavy bag around and having the straps dig into your shoulder and walking lopsided to accommodate the weight!
I had the pleasure of meeting the founders of Senreve at their pop up in San Francisco last month, and couldn’t have been more impressed by them! Every Senreve design is meticulously designed with the ‘modern’ women in mind; they thought of accommodating devices (laptops & tablets), comfort of the purse, style, quality, and originality. It’s no surprise this company was started by two women as they gathered their wants and needs in a handbag, and interviewed a huge group of other ladies on their opinions as well!
While the Maestra is my favorite (and comes in many other colors like Blush and Mimosa Bordeaux), I also adore the Doctor and recently added the card wallet as well! I have gotten more inquiries and compliments on my Maestra than any other accessory I’ve purchased. It’s a classic handbag that will never go out of style AND will make your life so much more organized!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
