BagBlaze Review and Giveaway - Ends 10/18 - US Only





Thanks to BagBlaze for providing me with a free handbag to review!

I am a huge fan of bags. There aren't many things that I'm like "I need as many of these as I can get!" But bags... Are definitely one of the few things that I do feel that way about.
Handbags can literally change the look of an entire outfit - They can be the finishing touch that brings it all together, or they can even be the sole statement piece, if you're wearing just a T and jeans.

I have probably close to 100 bags, and I am always adding new bags to my collection. So when I was given the chance to review a bag from BagBlaze, I was super excited!

I was given a list of bags I could choose from, and it was pretty hard to decide, but I really like bold, statement bags, so I ended up choosing the Matilda Satchel.
 
The Matilda Satchel is nicely made, and is definitely unique looking! I've never seen a bag with the same design, or those same colors. I have to say, it doesn't match everything I have in my closet, but that's the fun of it :)!

My favorite part of the bag is the embellished bottom sides. A lot of times when I get bags with "bling" it's like glued on there, and easily falls out, but the ones on the Matilda Satchel are like embedded in, and I really don't see them ever falling out.

They're well placed, and definitely add a nice touch (Gotta love the dazzle!) You have this pretty bag with it's unique colors, and then you turn it, and another surprise.

Another thing I noticed was the bottom of the bag. I like when the "bag" part of the handbag is loose, and not hard-shaped, but the problem with them is that normally, when you get a bag like that, the bottom is usually loose too, and when you set it down you end up with a frumpy looking piece of mush. Well the bottom on the Matilda Satchel is really sturdy, and  even when empty is able to stand upright.
You can kind-of see in this picture how it looks flat (making it easier to stand)


The biggest surprise element to the bag though, was the interior. The inside actually showcased a leopard print. Definitely different - I love leopard print, but was really surprised to see it on a bag with this particular pattern. I however loved the satiny finish of the inside - It looks really nice, and it also feels nice.
 Overall, I really loved the bag. The style and presentation of the bag were right on, and it had the quality to match. BagBlaze.com has great discounts on all different styles of handbags, so if you're a bag lover like me, I highly suggest checking them out for yourself.

  12. There are tons of others that I love, but I have to tell you girlfriend, you have crazy good taste! I LOVE this Matilda Satchel that you chose the best. I am crossing my fingers to win, but if I don't... I think I HAVE to buy this bag!!! I'm a bag junkie & I have NEVER met a leopard print that I didn't like :) My house is sort of a shrine to all things animal print, from carpeting in the dining room, to curtains, pillows, throws & more fun stuff that you can imagine! Great giveaway Amanda!!! <3
