    Default Milly Astor Metallic Bucket Bag

    Milly Astor Metallic Bucket Bag.jpg

    I know I have said this before, but Milly is just not a designer that I commonly associate with handbags. And yet, they just keep popping up in my posts. Funny how that works, huh? Well, it just so happens that I spotted another Milly handbag that I felt worthy of having attention brought to it. Meet the Milly Astor Metallic Bucket Bag!

    Why did this particular piece catch my eye? Believe it or not, it was the metallic finish. The fall season sees the return of the metallic "trend" each and every year, so the fact that this handbag falls into that category isn't what makes it so special. No, that would be the crackled finish. The heavily pebbled leather has metallic gold on the surface, but black peeks through from the creases. The result sort of reminds me of that crackle finish spray paint you can buy at craft stores... only a 1,000 times more gorgeous! I just love the rich, textured look and bold contrast! And the fact that this handbag is a bucket style doesn't hurt either. Bucket bags are very popular right now! I think they go great with just about anything, but they definitely have a casual vibe about them. I see this bag pairing nicely with denim or leather!

    I love it, but I don't know how I feel about the crossbody strap. To me I don't think I petite bag looks very good when worn this way. Something about it looks unproportionate.

    I think it's the shorter strap. It looks odd in that picture.

    I love the metallic too! The style is fine. I was just admiring a RM Mini MAC crossbody the other day with a similar finish. Over the years my taste in bags have changed to smaller sized now.

    I think it looks odd because it's a bucket style, doesn't lay flat on the body, and the fact that the strap is too short. Other than that, it's a cute bag.
