Purse Obsession

Purse Obsession

Highly obsessed with this new purse I purchased in Naples, Italy. I was roaming the streets of Italy, and a purse on display caught my eye. I instantly walked into the store called Marella and looked at the price for this purse. The purse was quite expensive, but luckily it was on sale. I don’t remember the exact price of the purse, but it was not so cheap (let me know if you know how much it is). I think it was around $60-$90, but not 100% sure! They don’t sell this online, but if you happen to see this store, I definitely recommend going in and checking it out. The purse looks like a mini backpack, but it is a shoulder bag or cross-body bag. It is gray and orange, and it was so different from the typical black or white purse that I use. It has a big pocket, and a smaller one, with plenty of space to fit everything I need for the day. The bag isn’t completely plain, it has some texture and details that give the bag dimension. I am so obsessed with the chain, which you can use to put over your shoulder; you can remove it and hold it by hand, and the best part is that it has belt loops, so if you remove the chain, you can use it as a fanny pack. It even comes with a protective sleeve, so if I want to travel with it, it won’t get dirty! This bag looks great with many outfits and is very different so it stands out. I like wearing with solids, like an all white outfit, so it really pops. I think everyone will have a different way of wearing it and putting it together with outfits. Send me some pictures of your outfit with the bag, so I can get some inspiration!

 

Also since this bag is quite expensive, I found some dupes online… check out m.yoins.com for cheaper and similar bags. They have so many different colors and styles of mini backpacks with shoulder chain. They are originally around $45-$50 depending on the style but right now they are on sale for around 40%, leaving them to be around $30. (I have never bought anything from this website so I do not know the quality of the products, but let me know what you think about it if you’ve ever bought anything.)

These are just two examples.. and online they do look a little bigger than the one I bought in Marella, but they are still nice either way!
