In a world where a celebrity wears an outfit and copies of it hit retail chains less than 24 hours later, it’s getting harder to define what’s on trend. So, when we hear of a brand being whispered about in the blogosphere for longer than a hot minute, it’s worth checking out. What’s the current buzz? Bellorita handbags. That name has been popping up over and over again, and many of the bloggers championing the brand are older women.
When older and senior women spot and embrace a trend, take note! These fashionable women have seen trends come and go. They grew up with heavyweight handbag legends like Channel, Dior, and Vuitton. These are also women that have had many years to discover their own personal style, and they value well-made goods that add mileage, class, and timeless elegance to their closet. If a senior woman blogger likes a bag, it’s worth looking into, so let’s take some time to do that today.
I accessorized with this bag three times since I got it. Full disclosure, I wore it three days in a row! The first time, I wore it for a work lunch to discuss some research with a colleague (see outfit photos with pants and leather jacket). The next time, I wore the clutch for a work dinner with a colleague (see photos with LBD and trench coat). On Saturday night, I wore it with the chain for date night out with my hubby. Every time I donned this beauty I received tons of compliments!
I love this Bellorita purse. I can really recommend it to my best friends. If you are looking for a truly unique accessory, check out Bellorita’s collection. Their handmade full-grain designer leather bags are pieces of art that will both accessorize and complement any outfit. It’s art meets function.------Nicole Molders
It attracted me in four ways.
One: It’s beautiful, elegant, sophisticated.
Two: Fish are big in our lives. We have a pond in our backyard that has koi fish and goldfish (big ones!). They swim around and around. Russ and I sit at the pond’s edge in our wicker chairs and watch them. He took this picture of them. Doesn’t it look like a painting?
Three: I love Asian art. Our garden has Asian influences, and as we put our home together, we brought that feeling inside as well with antique Asian pieces. Fish are literally “home” to us.
Four: I love the symbols of fish.------Brenda Kinsel
The intoxicating smell of the leather was obvious immediately on opening. I love the smell of leather. But it was the quality of the craftmanship and unique design which caught my attention. One of our discerning male friends remarked on how well made it was while examining it on a night out last week. The handbag features both a lovely gold shoulder chain and interchangeable short wrist strap, making it extremely versatile and suitable for anything from a casual lunch to a special occasion.------Hilda Smith
My first time taking this clutch out with me I walked into a local restaurant and bar, and set it down on the table. My girlfriend was already there talking with a gentleman who happens to be the Godfather of her children and he immediately said “Wow, that is a beautiful bag. Is it leather? Where did you get it?” Once I told him I was a fashion blogger, he said “Well, look at you. Your outfit goes perfectly with the handbag and your toes match the pearls on the bag and the white watch and everything.” WOW, I was flattered and impressed that this handbag brought so much attention to the start of my evening. It truly is a standout work of art.------Karen Brooks
The craftsmanship is incredible; from the inlaid pearls to the intricately detailed hand tooled leather, it’s truly a work of art and quite honestly the most beautiful bag that I own. It came with both a cross body chain strap as well as a wrist strap, but I felt that it worked best as a clutch for the wedding.
If we can go back to the crazy fabulous clutch for a moment, I can’t emphasize enough that if you happen to be on the market for an excellent quality bag that is also unique, check out Bellorita. Not only is the detailing beautiful, but this is the most solidly constructed bag that I’ve ever owned.------Deborah Stinedurf
Koi Fish meaning in Japan is good fortune or luck they also are associated with perseverance in adversity and strength of purpose, the Koi fish symbolize good luck, abundance and perseverance. Symbolic in Buddhism is to represent courage.
When I read this, I felt that the koi fish’s meaning certainly applied to my life’s situation. I have felt lucky to have found a diagnosis for my illness, giving me the direction to which I needed to find pain control and management. I also felt that the perseverance and courage required to not give up, not retreat, meant something to me as well. There was many a day in the beginning of the illness, 10 years ago, where I wondered how I could possibly deal with the severe muscle pain I had. How could I live my life enjoying the things I did? Could I accept change?
I thought all of this quite fascinating when learning what the Asian symbol meant. I loved the hand painted design, elegant drawing and the pearls strategically placed for bubbles. I also love things with meaning, as well as uniqueness. I doubted that I would see this handbag/clutch on anyone in Charlotte or the Lake Norman area, and I also wanted to bring something unique and beautiful to my readers.------Jessica Jannenga
Bellorita started as the dream of emerging designer Jack Sun, who left a research science job and his hometown to take a chance on launching a designer handbag line in Los Angeles. In 2017, the first Bellorita bags appeared on the market. The look of the bags immediately captivated fashion-forward women – Sun brought Asian/American fusion to the handbag market.
Not only was the look instantly iconic, but the quality of the bags stands out, too. Sun eschews the fast-fashion trend that sees mass-produced goods created quickly in questionable factories, then dumped into the market at rock bottom prices. Instead, he insists that each bag be hand tooled and hand painted by skilled tradespeople, and that only quality and ethically sourced leather and embellishments are used. Up and down the supply chain, everyone that touches a Bellorita bag before it comes to market is treated with the utmost respect and dignity. Sun passionately feels that the ethics behind each bag are as important as the finished product.
The styles of the designer handbags range from satchel to tote to crossbody, and everything in between. The color pallets feature mainly neutrals (black and tan), but some bags have incredible pops of bright, bold color (peacock blue, burnt orange, sunset red). The embellishments are hand tooled, hand placed, and hand painted. Each bag is priced in the affordable luxury market, making them easily accessible for discerning women that desire an ethically and expertly made designer bag. The majority of the bags are also designed to go with several outfit styles, either as the stand-out accessory or as the bit player that completes the look. The value of the bags in this regard cannot be understated.
Once you dig in and learn more about the brand and see the bags, it’s easy to see why classy women with life and style experience have readily embraced Bellorita, right alongside their younger peers who are eager to distinguish themselves in the world of fashion. It’s nice to see such a refreshing, independent designer in the handbag market, providing products that women from all walks of life can carry.

I cant stop showing everyone man and woman. The purse is gorgeous and the workmanship is beyond words. Buy Bellorita for that special someone.
It is a work of art. Very high quality. I think I will start collecting this designer.------Michelle Wang
This is the most perfect purse I've ever owned. It is perfect in every way. The leather is quite soft and supple. The fish and other designs are beautifully carved and painted in vibrant colors and with such beautiful precision and detail. The texture of the purse allows you to fit everything you need in there. I love this purse and highly recommend it.------Christina Mines
Huge Bellorita handbag fan. I prefer the larger bags but, I am getting used to the smaller size of this one, as compared to the large feather tote. I bought this bag as a replacement because, my other one was very well loved and not looking it's best. Lol.------jbell
The purse is beautiful. It's very well made. The decorative pearls are on firm. Nothing loose. Everything about the purse is well made.------Brenda Prudencio
The bag is beautiful. The leather is soft and the colors are what they show in the picture. I would recommend this item, the quality of the product is worth the price. It will probably be the last one I will need to buy.------Angel
I found the story and design of this piece fascinating. I am completely blown away by the quality of the craftsmanship. Surprised my wife for her birthday and now she brings it everywhere. She gets more attention wearing it than any other purse she owns. Can't wait to surprise her with her next piece to add to her collection.------Tyler Hersom
