Love this bag.
on January 18, 2014
Let me tell you about this bag right here.
I've never been too into name brand bags but last year I wanted a quality bag and my boyfriend ended up getting me a beautiful red leather Kate Spade bag for Valentines day.
Forward to present time - January 2014, and I wanted another new quality bag because I wanted to keep my Kate Spade bag in good condition.
After a few weeks of internet shopping, being very picky about style and wanting a colored bag, not a standard black or brown - I found the Rebecca Minkoff MAB bags, this MAB mini in Azureeeee. I read her bio and was like: "Cool she grew up in San Diego too, I think she gets my style."
I found that the normal sized bag and the mini retail both for around $500 and at $180 on for this MAB mini on Amazon, that's a steal. I don't know why the color Azure was the lowest price one because I thought it was the best color (of course that's just me).
At first my concern was that the bag was going to be too small for me (I mean... MINI is in the name) but it totally wasn't. I'm the kind of person that carries either my Kindle or my iPad, a fat long wallet, a zip pouch as big as my wallet housing tissues and eye drops and chapstick and other girl stuff, and then another zip pouch in similar size housing my Mac charger and my iPod charger and my Kindle charger + all kinds of miscellaneous stuff in my purse --- so you get it, IT CAN HOLD EVERYTHING.
The design is pretty cool too. I read another review saying that they didn't like all the D ring action going on the bag but they're meant to help with function for the long strap. If you don't want the cross body/long strap to hang to low, there's strategically placed rings that keep it in place plus other areas you can hook the strap to turn the purse into a satchel or cross body or whatever.
There's a nice a convenient outside zip pocket as well as 3 interior slots for your phone or cards or whatever and an interior pocket.
The purse also comes with a dust bag that matches the interior fabric for the the bag isn't in use and also comes with extra accent leather strips that knot onto the zipper rings (which I'm glad for, I looked at those as soon as I took the bag out of the box and was like... I might take those off - they'll probably get messed up fast).
All in all, a really great bag. My only wish is that the handles were a little longer so that carrying this on the shoulder would be a little more comfortable. (I don't do that carry my bag in the crook of my elbow crap.)
