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.
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.
handbags, so if you're a bag lover like me, I highly suggest checking them out for yourself.
