Last summer, I was looking for a new handbag that would double as both an evening bag and chic shoulder bag for business functions. Once I found the Monogram Vernis Brea, I was convinced that the GM was the perfect size to fit even my smallest laptop, iPad, wallet, planner and phone.

Although extremely excited to get the bag, it was hard to choose between Amaranthe and the now unavailable Terre d'Ombre. Because my closet is more filled with blacks and browns, I felt that the Terre d'Ombre was the perfect choice. To this day, it's one of my favorite bags!

Love/hate Monogram Vernis? What do you think?
