Have you ever found a retail site that was seriously just eye candy? A site that made you drool at all the options for letting your inner fashionista out? Something that was afforable that just made your wardrobe POP?! I did when I discovered Handbag Heaven.
In the past couple of years I’ve become more and more interested in handbags. It started after I was on maternity leave with my first son and watched a lot of TLC’s What Not to Wear. I realized some of the mistakes I was making in always being practical with my shoes and handbags. In the past I always wanted a purse that was simple, had good organization and would go with most every outfit. Of course it also couldn’t cost too much. I discovered it is important to always have a couple of accessory items, like a handbag, that you just adore. Something that made you feel good when you wore it out and something that drew attention from others. A handbag can really make an outfit (and I can’t believe I’m saying this) go from drab to fab!I was given the opportunity to review a bag from Handbag Heaven and I jumped at the chance to try out the Side Toggle Hobo in black by Nicole Lee as shown above. Isn’t it fabulous? I liked that it was just the right mixture of fun and trendy but would still go with most of my wardrobe. (I love black…) I’m extremely pleased with the quality. It is honestly the best quality bag that I’ve seen that isn’t designer and frankly after using this bag I’m not sure I need designer anymore. (Sorry Kate Spade!) The quality is almost that but at much lower cost without looking like the standard designer fakes. The interior is a fun flower print and super silky. My only complaint would be its weight. While many people would be fine, it is a little heavier than I would like when I’m also trying to lug a diaper bag around. Overall I’m very happy with it and now I’m just thinking about which one I’d like for my birthday in July! Any suggestions?
Now for the best part! Handbag Heaven would like to give one of my readers their choice of ANY handbag! They are also offering you 15% off with discount code “blmama”, which is good through July 1st, 2009.
