A Rainbow of Wallets

Il Bussetto wallets

 

Happy Thursday! The sun has made a quick appearance today, but these long, gray, gloomy days have us yearning for color! A small way to add some chroma to your life is through your personal accessories. Il Bussetto has some cheery hues for your card carrying and it can make all the difference. Have you ever tried looking for a black wallet in a dark handbag? A pop of color can bring a smile to your face and make it less frustrating! But, hey, if you like black we have those options too.

To see more of our Il Bussetto collection go to our website resoul.com. For mood board inspiration follow us on Pinterest.

Il Bussetto

il-bussetto-coin-casesSometimes you come across a brand that you fall in love with instantly. I remember the first time I saw an Il Bussetto wallet. A customer was at the counter and pulled it out of her handbag. I was immediately smitten and of course had to ask who made her wallet. It took me a couple of months to track it down, but we did and I was so happy to finally find a wallet collection that aligned with the quality of the assortment of shoes we have in the shop.  After all, good leather is good leather and we love nothing more than good leather!

So, when I went to Italy last September to buy shoes for the shop, I made sure to schedule an appointment with Il Bussetto at their offices in Milan. I wanted to know more about this brand, where and how these products were made, to find out their story and share it with you. Continue reading

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Pink

Could be the the typical grey drippy morning we started with today that inspired this post. But all of a sudden these past few weeks, I have really been into the color pink! It doesn’t matter which shade really, (except for Barbie pink that is)  blush, petal, fuschia, magenta or even neon. Since I typically favor orange, this is a new obsession for me. You should see my sketchbook. And of course, pink peonies are my favorite flowers.
