Case of the Mondays – Chains of Love


Well, we have to agree with you there, Mr. Tyler. For a man in 1787, he had great intuition about handbags. Take a look at some gorgeous gold chain strap bags that we feel very bound to ourselves. While most of the time, the gold chain bag channels old school Chanel-egance, these days you’re finding more varied, fun and edgier styles. Enjoy!
