My post title pretty much says it all. One look at this bag and “Gotta Have It!” began flashing through my mind. I am a purse freak. As much as I love shoes, I have an even bigger weakness for handbags, purses, clutches, satchels, hobos, duffels and totes–you name it. Since I’m not rich, I have to keep my desires in check price-wise, and I am always looking for the most bang for my buck. So, for me, finding a site like BagInc.com is like being a kid at Disneyland. It’s where magic happens. Masses of designer-inspired bags at real-people prices! YAY!
When I first visited their site, I saw a tab titled “Top 25 Most Coveted Bags” and after browsing through the list it’s plain to see why it’s titled that way.Take a look at these two bags off the Top 25 list:
The Essential Grace Leather Bag in Pink. Isn’t that lovely??
And this one is too stunning. A statement piece. The Kellia Snakeskin Leather Tote in Blue.
You would think the prices would be out of reach, but the Grace is just $149.00- for an all-leather bag. Awesomeness. The Kellia is even better- $89.00. You can shop at BagInc with search filters like: must have, color, trends, genuine leather, best sellers and more. They also have a navigation tool so you can “shop under”- for example, “shop under” $10.00 or “shop under” $40.00–which is a neat feature to help keep you on budget.They have a great selection of wallets, scarves, belts and jewelry too.
I chose the BagInc Alexa Duffle Studded Calfskin Leather Bag. It just popped out at me right way. At first I was going to go with the violet one because it’s so pretty, and I thought it would look nice with my hair (really, because I have a violet wash going on right now) but then after going back and forth, I decided on black. I often buy colored purses, but thought this bag really stands out in black because of the designer shape and stud accents. Shipping was fast, and it arrived well-packaged. It came in a cloth sack with drawstrings, for storage.
When I’m shopping for bags I want soft leather, on-trend styling, and functionality, and this gem has all that in spades. I ADORE THIS BAG!!!! The pictures really can’t convey how super soft and supple the pebbled leather is. It’s luscious. The type of softness you just keep touching.
It’s beautifully lined and the seams (pet peeve of mine–seams indicate quality, and I want them strong, straight and symmetrical) are wonderful. There are hidden pockets on the outside of the bag, as well as an inner zipped pocket, plus two more open pockets opposite. The zippers are also strong and sturdy. Plenty of room inside. It’s an oversize bag, but not by too much. I put down a pillowcase so you could see the detail better. My duvet cover is lavender/black and the first few pics were hard to see. Yeah, poor hub has to sleep on pink sheets! LOL
With the studded detail on the bottom, it’s just a striking looking bag.The studs aren’t just decorative though, they’ll keep you from scuffing the bottom of your purse. Pretty and smart. A good combination. The Alexa comes with an optional shoulder strap. While I usually carry my bags hooked over my arm, I want the shoulder strap because after a long day in town, I want to be able to just throw the strap over my shoulder since I have shopping bags or whatnot. This is my new go-to bag; it can be an everyday handbag or a dressed-up bag. It works either way.
Behind my smile I’m thinking “MINE, MINE, MINE!”
If you are shopping for a new handbag (and when aren’t we?) I can highly recommend BagInc.com. The quality and prices are terrific, and the selection is huge!
