Petal is another of my bargain handbags, bought from Marks & Sparks about 6 years ago for $10 in a sale. It was the rich pastel pink colour that attracted me to Petal, I have seen roses in this delicate shade of pink and always loved them, so she was irresistible.
She is a good sized bag made from a fine straw with contrasting brown accent stitching, a pink fabric interior and single pocket. Her handles are a nice soft brown leather and she fastens just with the elastic and button. So I tend to only use Petal in situations where I know I won't be in crowds, where a hand could easily reach in and take something out.
Petal is a perfect summer handbag and as I am very much a pink girl she goes with alot of things I wear :-)
