Sorry for the delay - camera malfunctions and then life in general got in the way of my promised "review" of the J.Crew Lexi Satchel I ordered during the "Private 20% off" event some days ago. So, without further ado, I give you the Lexi Satchel:
It's a pretty bag to be sure, and the "shadow" color I got it in is a nice deep gray. I can see it pairing well with nearly anything. The leather felt nice, and I didn't see any imperfections, but then again, I'm not a handbag expert by any means.
The front flap is held in place with hidden magnets. The straps are there just for show:
It has a pretty slouchy shape, which I didn't like too much because I liked it better in that stiff rectangular form. You can see the slouchiness from the back view:
It had a super roomy interior with a main zip pocket and some compartments for cell phonesm chapstick, etc:
And my favorite part of the bag? It's gotta be the tassels:
You can see the size ratio between bag and human (haha) here:
As lovely as this bag was, though, I ended up returning it today because my Kooba Jacinda arrived and was the crowd favorite. I even took votes because I can't be trusted to make up my mind on my own!
