Accessories - Introducing Naomi Levi

I was recently introduced to a new accessory brand called Naomi Levi. This great Australian company sell stunning leather accessories, ranging from more sophisticated classic pieces to innovative modern designs. Bags, clutches, purses and belts in traditional leather and suede as well as more modern bright coloured leather. The bright items are perfect for the summer time whereas the more natural will look great in the winter and for the more mature customer.

 Ok so they are a little pricy for everyday budgets, but for a seriously good piece of well made leather they really aren't that badly priced. Good quality leather will always set you back a little but it will last you years if you invest in a good piece.

Here are just a few of my favourite items. 

 Day Dreamer Red Purse $129 (Australia dollars)
River Green Medium Fold $110
Fringe Bar Bag $250
Wonda B&W Purse $130
Funky Fur Purse $130

What do you think guys? Do you love a good leather purse or bag? I have a great leather purse I brought back from China, a pair of leather gloves from Canada and a few leather bags and coats! And think they are all great.

Diana Photos - First set

Ok I told you I had these developed ages ago, and I did, it just took me a while to scan them onto the computer. So I haven't quite gotten the hang of the camera yet, I'm pretty hit or miss with them, but this was the first 2 rolls I had developed. Jon bought the red film, hence the red tinge to them all. But once I get used to how it works properly hopefully I will be able to get some better shots. I still like the way these came out though anyway.
 My Jon
