I Covet: Roccatella ‘Jane’ Satchel

Posted November 30th, 2011 by Victoria Mason in Fashion

My eyes widened, my mouth let out an excited gasp as my heartbeat quickened. It was love at first sight.  I first laid eyes on her, I like to call it a her, her name is ‘Jane’ after all, when the character Claire Dunphy, played by Julie Bowen, slung her over her shoulder during an episode of “Modern Family”.

A slightly battered, decidedly elegant yet practical satchel by Roccatella.  It comes in black and grey but I have my heart set on the cognac.  Unfortunately, so did a lot of other women out there because my baby, my ‘Jane’ is sold out everywhere.  I can’t even find her on eBay. Sniff. I know cry me a river, right? It’s a purse.  What can I say, we all have our “thing” and this is mine.

I’ve always been more of a purse girl.  Having size 10 feet makes shoe shopping not so much fun.  The sight of a cute clutch, a vintage Coach bag or something handmade on Etsy, it doesn’t matter.  I buy bags from Target, Nordstrom, Neiman’s and thrift stores.  My love for the perfect bag for my mood or occasion knows no limit.  It is just a matter of that twitter-pated feeling when my brain starts to buzz that makes me know just one thing- “I want that purse!”

The Roccatella ‘Jane’ satchel is just one of the many satchel style bags that have become very big this year.  They are usually a nice medium-to-large size, wear well with many types of outfits and are good for work and casual times.  Nordstrom has a great selection of satchels but they can be found at TJ Maxx and Target too.  Find your true love today.
