One of my sponsors for the 2013 Spring Fashionista Event is Cuore and Pelle.
The name is Italian for “heart and leather” thus the tagline “the love of leather”. Cuore and Pelle is a designer handbag studio that combines quality design with luxury details. All of their leather bags are genuine and are crafted in such a way that it offers functionality, longevity and aesthetics. The leather they use are carefully selected for the unique textures and colors which makes their bags so beautiful.
The first time I checked out the Cuore and Pelle website, I already fell in love with a lot of their bags! They have bags with a classy and more formal look. And they have bags with a classy and casual look. I was torn between the Musette and the Amelia bag but since I already have a designer bag for formal occasions, I went for the Amelia bag which to me looks classy and fresh.

I chose the Cuore and Pelle Amelia Bag in Sol color which is a mustard-like color since it’s almost spring and I want something bright and colorful.
Aside from that, most of my handbags are earth colors so it’s awesome to have one that spruces up my bag collection. It’s actually more orange-y in color than how my photos make it appear. The Cuore and Pelle Amelia bag also comes in five other colors: Black, Khaki, Aegean, Rose and Cream.
I love that I can carry it on my arms (as shown on the first photo above) and it can also be carried around on my shoulder since the handle drop is long enough. And because it comes with a detachable shoulder strap, you can use that and carry it as shown on the second photo above.
Taking a look at the inside of this Cuore and Pelle bag, you’ll see that it has 2 sides. I don’t think it’s very noticeable on my photo above but I put the diapers and wipes on one side and the snack puffs on the other side. What is between them is a zipped divider. It also has 2 side compartments on one side, another zip pocket on the other side, and a zipped pocket on the exterior. For someone like me who loves compartmentalizing, this handbag is ideal!
Now if you’ve been reading my reviews before, you know that I like using my fashion review items when I go to church. This is so I can see if people will notice the product or if its just so-so. I went to church last Saturday (one of our members had her baby shower there) with this bag and the bag was noticed the moment I stepped inside the lobby. The pastor’s wife asked me right away where I got my bag and told me she loved the color and the texture of the bag.
And I agree. My photos may not give this bag any justice cause I’m not really a good photographer. But the leather used for this bag is the kind that feels really durable — like you know it’s going to last a long time. I love my Cuore and Pelle Amelia bag!
