My friends surprised me for my birthday last year with this Michael Kors Frankie drawstring cross-body Handbag. They knew I love fashion and Handbags especially.
If you’re looking to have a small bag to run a few quick errands and don’t want to haul your house along with you ;), then this is a great option. The cross-body feature frees up your hands to go about your busy day.
If you’re like me and want to have more than just strictly your essentials then this bag is the perfect compromise. It’s small size is deceptive and you can fit a whole lot in it. The bucket shape and open top drawstring closure provide it with flexibility and give, should you need to squeeze in an awkwardly shaped item. The down side to this feature is that it doesn’t close securely so you should keep it in mind if this is something you value. the bucket shape isn’t my favorite style but it sure is handy and versatile.
Measures approximately 6″ (L) x 7″ (H) x 3.5″
Here is the list of things I fit in the bag :
– my Kindle paper white
– a small leather good : my Louis Vuitton Clé
– my keys
– my sunglasses (in a soft case)
– my smart phone : iPhone 6/Samsung Galaxy S4
– my credit card, ID card or drivers’ license and metro card
– my credit card RFID holder
– a tiny Sephora makeup bag that holds travel sized lipsticks and lip-gloss
This bag is made out of soft pebbled leather. I personally appreciate this over stiffer Safiano leather. The bright red shade makes it a standout in any outfit. Red is a great color that can be used in any season whether winter or summer.
The strap is adjustable so you can fit it to your height and frame (with a drop of about 22-25″). The inside of the bag is lined in Michael Kors logo shiny fabric. I like the fact that the interior is light so that you can easily spot your items when rummaging through your purse, granted this feature is mostly useful for bigger sized bags, but I appreciate it none the less.
It has three credit card sized slip pockets one on top of the other. This comes in handy if you don’t want to carry a wallet around or yours just doesn’t fit in the handbag. However you will need something to hold your coins, that’s where my Louis Vuitton Clé comes in handy.
The bag has gold hard ware : the Michael Kors Brand name written in gold lettering across the front. I like the fact the letters are small and discreet. It also comes with a bag charm hanging of a red leather strap from the left side of the handbag. The charm is the Michael Kors MK circular logo.
This bag is very versatile and practical. It doesn’t have any feet but for such a small bag that doesn’t bother me at all. I appreciate carrying it and love the fact that my Kindle fits in it, as I never leave the house without it. You never know when you might get stuck in a line with nothing to do :). (did I mention I’m a book worm?)
