Hey guys, I hope you’re doing amazing today. As you all know I did a post on the Alexander Wang Rocco bag with rose gold hardware in early October……I must admit, I quickly became obsessed!!!! I ended up caving after about 2 weeks (the fastest I have caved for any handbag) and treated myself to the bag. Needless to say I LOVE IT and have been wanting to do a review on it and have gotten quite a few requests to do so as well….soooooo today while shooting some pictures for my OOTD on Instagram I took a couple extra shots of the bag to share with you and wanted to talk about a couple of things that I’ve noticed are missing from a lot of other Rocco reviews.
*The bag is beautiful OBVIOUSLY! * I love the top handles in addition to a shoulder strap although it’s NOT long enough for cross body wear. * I love the pebbled leather * I love love love the rose gold hardware, matches a lot of my jewelry, namely my wedding set:) * the rose gold is a very nice tone, not the overpowering ultra cheesy pink shade that some rose gold hardware can have. * heavy-duty and very well made bag* the trademark studded bottom is very cool without being too crazy * the bag has the feel of the LV Speedy with a little more edge
NOW onto the 2 most important points…
1.CON: This bag is HEAVY! I’m talking 4 pounds!!!! EMPTY! I personally don’t mind it but I know some of you might.
2. PRO: This bag has 2 “secret” pockets outside of the bag……I use one for keys, one for phone & lipstick. I like accessing my phone, keys etc without having to dig around the bottom of the bag.
There you have it…..overall my only con is the weight of the bag, everything else wonderful!!!!!! If you’re on the fence about this bag…..I say go for it! It will be in your collection for decades to come!
