*Disclaimer – This purse was sent to me in exchange for my review; however, all opinions expressed are completely my own.
On a teacher budget I must admit I try to be smart about my money and save where I can, but there are three things I am willing to spend a little extra on:
1. great running shoes (Mizuno of course)
2. good makeup
3. designer bags
I wasn’t always this way. I used to buy cheapo purses for about twenty bucks, but I ended up replacing them all the time. Then, on a trip to my Oma’s I rescued a brand new designer bag she was about to get rid of. (She purchased it because of the color, but decided it was too big and heavy for her.) I hauled that baby around everywhere for two full years and it held up like magic, heck, it still looks practically new – and my love of designer bags began.
For months, I had been checking out sales and discounts online, and popping into stores at the outlets looking for a new bag that would be a fun color for spring and summer, when suddenly isaacmizrahi.com asked me if I would be willing to review one of their bags. I jumped at the opportunity since I had been really looking for a new bag anyway. Soon, my isaacmizrahi.com bag showed up and it was time to test it out.
I have been using my new bag for over a month and it is amazing. I cram it FULL and it can hold a ton. It gets tossed in my grocery cart, locked in my trunk in 100 degree weather, and stuffed into my Orange Theory locker, and it always comes out looking amazing. On the inside it has a zip pocket to keep my smaller items safe and also two good sized side pockets (for my cell phone and keys). The bright blue color combo is just what I was looking for in a fun spring/summer purse, and I have gotten a ton of compliments on it already.
I would highly suggest Issac Mizrahi’s bags as they are well designed and well constructed. The fall bags just came out and they are fabulous. (I desperately want the Paulette Hobo in Stone and Camel!) Plus, since the fall bags just came out, that means the summer bags are on HUGE sale.
Do you love purses too?
