My Favorite Quilted Bag!

22 Jan

Quilted handbags have been around for quite  awhile and are the perfect timeless style to include in your handbag collection. The beauty about quilted bags is that they can be worn with anything from an evening dress to a t-shirt and ripped jeans. Every designer has their own take on the quilted bag with Chanel being the most recognized. Just in case you’ve been living under a rock- you can’t get your hands on a Chanel bag for less than $1500 and that’s the LOW END. That brings me to the entire point of this post; Most people would love a Chanel bag yet most people could never afford one- and there aren’t too many great options for a well made quilted bag without going bankrupt in the process… UNTIL NOW- Rebecca Minkoff has outdone herself with the Quilted Love Bag!!! These bags are so well made and are priced at $295 for the standard size and $195 for the mini. Not exactly cheap but totally doable!!! They look and feel like a million bucks and are available in an array of colors and hardware options. I have one in the standard size. I love it and highly recommend it!

The Quilted Love bag can be worn with the chain long for cross body wear, with the chain doubled for shoulder wear or worn without the chain as a clutch! Who doesn’t love options??!!!! I also love how these bags have an outside pocket for phone or keys!

Alexander Wang Rocco Bag Review!

28 Nov

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!

Perfect Bag For Fall! ($50)

14 Oct

 

This bag is perfect for Fall.  It’s the perfect rich shade of forest green and has top handles as well as a removable shoulder strap. It comes complete with gold hardware and working lock and key detail.  Definitely looks like it cost a lot more than $50! Available at Lulus ($50).

 

 

Bag Crush!

3 Oct

I’ve always liked the Alexander Wang Rocco bag, a buttery soft bag with studs on the bottom for a little bit of edge.  I first spotted the bag on Kristin Cavallari a few years back and have since seen them everywhere. I really liked  how there were different color options for the studs like gold, black nickel, silver etc. I just didn’t find that it “spoke” to my heart which is a must when you’re spending a pretty penny……UNTIL NOW……I just about DIED recently when I saw this bag in person with rose gold hardware!  It was speaking to me then!!!!!!!! It is a beauty for sure with just enough super shiny rose studs gold against the soft black pebbled leather and  two rolled top handles and a shoulder strap make the bag versatile and easy to wear.

 

Rocco Bag $925 available HERE.

I am in love with this bag.
