Many visitors to our website have come to find out that we do not have modeling photos of any of our bags. Of course we list measurements of height, width, and depth, but unless you are ready and willing to get the measuring tape out, this information doesn’t help you much. We are also backlogged on updating product photos, so modeling pictures are at the bottom of our to-do list. Now I am certainly not the best at imagining how things will look on me just by measurements alone, though I applaud all of you who can. This is why I wanted to make a post with modeling photos for all those like me who need actual reference to how the bag compares to body size, how it hangs, and the over all effect. I have chosen 5 of our most popular bags from the Toscanella collection to model. For reference, I am 5′ 4″ (165cm), and while I don’t specifically wish to divulge my weight, lets just say I’m a dollar even. Also if you see a bag on our site and would like for me to model it, please leave a comment on which bag it is and I will accommodate!
1# Most Popular Simple Tote: This simple square tote is perfect for carrying just about anything. It’s square shape is great for porting around document folders or painting supplies. Also a great carry-on bag for air travel due to easy access magnetic snap and small cloth bag that accompanies the tote. No more needing to dig out the make-up when going through security! It is also lightweight due to its simplicity, and fits nicely under the arm.
2# Small Crossbody Purse: This is a personal favorite of mine! This small crossbody is meant to carry only the necessities. It’s clean lines and flap give it a charming country look. It’s like the original satchel bag only in mini. This is great for busy days when you need your hands free, or if you want to feel less weighed down. An essential bag for trips!
3# Hand-held or Strap Box Bag: This bag touts structure. No slouching here! the hand straps don’t allow for shoulder usage, so it comes with a cotton adjustable strap for the days you just want to be hands free. It won’t be easy to lose things in this bad due to its structure. It has a nice wide base and stiff sides, making it a great for holding in the crook of your elbow.
4# A Business Casual Beauty: I haven’t come across many briefcases that have a feminine air, but this shoulder brief tote definitely fits the bill. The wide base and tapered top make it great for carrying around all you need to for a standard work day without the bag becoming too bulky. A cotton adjustable strap is included. This bag really dresses up a casual outfit as well. A nice pair of jeans and button up top paired with this bag exudes cool sophistication.
5# Playful Structured Hobo: Most hobo styles we see now-a-days are always slouchy. I tend to also be a fan of slouchy hobos, but find it frustrating to no end when I have a hard time finding what I am digging for. This hobo is great in the sense that it fits great over the shoulder, has a nice classic shape, and doesn’t slouch. Blind digging won’t be an issue with this bag. The opening is tailored to fit the underarm, using the arm as security closure as well. This bag also comes in a small and large size. I am sporting the smaller version.
And there you have it! Our 5 most popular Toscanella bags finally put into perspective. I once again encourage all of you to leave a comment if you see a bag on our website and want me to model it.
