Jeff and I had a busy Saturday planned this weekend
so it was the perfect time to take my new
Adora bag out for a spin!
Adora bags are made in Vinci Italy
in the same town that gave birth to Leonardo Da Vinci.
They are made by skilled artisans in the Tuscan countryside
out of the finest Italian leathers.
I was in love with the history of the bag
even before I opened the box!
Any company that revels in craftsmanship of the individual maker
even numbers each bag
gets my heart strings for sure!
I love the feel of the leather
the size of the bag.
When Jeff and I go out for the day
I like to be prepared for anything the day might bring
that usually means a change of shoes.
I usually travel for the day
with a dressy 'looks good' kind of shoe
then also a shoe I can walk for miles exploring new areas.
My fabulous Adora handled my needs beautifully!
I simply wrapped my walking shoe in a cotton scarf
was set for what ever we chose to do!
My Supra tennies tucked perfectly into this generous bag
with plenty of room left for my camera
Once our first appointments were finished
I made a quick shoe change
was off to see what we could see!
Our busy day consisted of
breakfast in beautiful Downtown Disney …
A scheduled meeting at another wedding venue for this lovely couple.
This time it was at the Colony House in the historic side of Anaheim.
The building was originally part of SoCal's citrus history
now has been revitalized into a new event space.
After business was done
it was an afternoon discovering new quaint places in Downtown Anaheim
like this tiny free library on the street.
Take a book … leave a book were the only rules.
Right next door was the cutest coffee house I have ever seen!
Taking it's style cue from the Airstream library
there were even books hanging from above.
We walked a couple of blocks to the refurbished
Anaheim Packing House
home to many unique restaurants inside.
I am always charmed with their regard to the origins of the building
the time way back when
it was literally a citrus packing plant.
The Packing House is such a new hot spot these days
it's way to busy and chaotic for my taste
so we found a new lovely place for lunch at
on Center Street.
I was completely set for our busy day of appointments, meetings
sightseeing and lunch
with my new bag the color of SoCal winter sunshine!
Another of my favorite things about this beautiful bag
is the inner clutch that comes inside!
Anyone who loves big bags the way I do
knows that the down side is sometimes the small things can get lost inside.
The genius designers at Adora have solved this dilemma
with a small clutch to keep all the small together!
The clutch comes clipped in the bag so finding things is a breeze.
Just as good
it can unclip and be a beautiful clutch all on it's own
for nights I just have to bring a few necessities!

Italian bags at
If your in the market for a new high quality bag
at an affordable price
want a bit of the Tuscan hillsides
to carry your essentials
I can honestly say
Adora is a bag that I can recommend!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
