Purses…you can never have too many, am I right, ladies??? I have an assortment of purses that I like to cycle through but could not resist checking out the handbags available from Bag Blaze. On Bag Blaze, you can find a variety of handbags and clutches in all sizes. My favorites tend to be totes, hobos and satchels so I was excited to see that there was quite a large selection available through Bag Blaze. All bags are 70% below retail prices – they are priced at $39.95 or lower and include free shipping.
When I was first given the opportunity to review a handbag from Bag Blaze, I chose the Holly Tote. Little did I know that this style was next in line as a daily “blazing deal” and flew off shelves in an instant. *Tip: If you find a bag you like from Bag Blaze, do not hesitate – it may sell out!* I browsed the bags some more and had no problem finding another that I really liked…I actually found several and had to narrow it down to one. I finally chose the Lottie Tote in black, which is no longer available. So, see, I told you, they can sell out of the popular styles!
The Lottie Tote is made of quality faux leather and I have been very impressed with its durability. I have taken this thing everywhere and my toddler loves to try to drag it around the room (and he sure isn’t gentle with it!) The bag holds its shape just enough to sit upright on the floor but has enough give in its shape if you want to stuff it full. When choosing my handbag, I almost went with another style instead because I was unsure how I would like the silver accents. I honestly worried that they would end up tacky and junky looking. Instead, the silver accents are perfect – they add a little shine but don’t take away from the style of the bag.
With a 17 month old, I have stopped carrying our huge diaper bag everywhere and started keeping a few small items in my purse instead. The size of the Lottie Tote is perfect – I have plenty of space to keep my personal items including my wallet, sunglasses, coupon clutch, lotion and keys as well as a couple diapers, a sippy cup and a small toy for my son. Inside are a few pockets as well as a zippered pocket in the center to divide the two sides of the purse. My only complaint is that the zippered area in the center does not have much stability and seems to slide down and get lost in with my purse contents.
On the outside you can find a zippered pocket on the back as well as a pouch on the front that fastens with a flap and metal clasp. The front pouch is perfect for my iPhone and keeps it safely away from potential keys and sippy cup damage. Again, the material of the bag is durable and looks great. I have already received several compliments from friends and I feel proud carrying the bag while I am out shopping.
