Here is another Swift!  This bag was created from a St. Cloud GM, and what bird seems to fly the highest into the clouds?  You guessed it, the Swift!!!

This crossbody bag is so pretty and really makes a statement! The St. Clouds are coveted for their versatility, as you can wear them with anything, and they have a handy pocket in back.  I love this style!!

I've added black leather braiding to the outside of the front flap and also the back pocket.  This bag has got enough room for just the right amount of things, coming in at W 9.4 x H 8.3 x D 2.8 ".  The Toledo Blue Epi leather is in good shape. There are some creases in it, but no tears.  Because both pockets contained sticky Vuittonite (see below), I've cleaned them thoroughly.  They are no longer sticky, and are just soft flannel.  There is one small zippered pocket inside and an envelope pocket in the back that is 5" tall (perfect for your phone!).  I replaced the strap with a braided 6-strand black leather one is the perfect length to wear crossbody (47.5").  It has a flat section that sits comfortably across your body, and then moves into a round section towards the antique brass clasp, and then ends in fringe (may be trimmed to your liking).  

The black chunky strap looks amazing with this bag and can be purchased separately here.

A video of this bag has been added to my Instagram stores, and will be saved in the highlights called The Swift!

About Vuittonite:  Prior to 1997, Louis Vuitton lined many of its bags with a vinyl-like material known as Vuittonite. It was used (and patented) by Louis Vuitton because its resistance to water makes it easy to clean. Unfortunately, when exposed to high heat or humidity, Vuittonite begins to deteriorate and peel away from the edges of the bag. Over time, it becomes increasingly sticky, forming a residue (which, in extreme cases, is black in color) that transfers to anything placed inside the bag.
