The moment I saw this bag, I knew it was a classic. This is the handbag you buy because “it’s pretty,” and realize time and time again just how great it really is.
One look at the Roselyn, and you can see it’s big enough to hold everything you can think of, but the shape, with its inward and upward curve, is feminine, letting it still look like a handbag, and not a tote. The huge flower on the front is definitely a statement, yet, being the same fabric as the rest of the bag, is far from gaudy or over-the-top.
Immediately, I grabbed the ivory bag, and just that simple addition to my all-black outfit took my look to a whole new level. Had I been wearing some crazy, random heels, I could even have related my look to one of Carrie Bradshaw.
I know. The bag is that good.
Aside from the form, even the functionability (totally a word) of this bag is drool-worthy. I mentioned before the impressive size, but what makes the size work is the zipper.
It doesn’t just close along the top, the zipper goes several inches down each side, allowing a greater opening at the top, which, in turn, leads to less frustrated sighs from the driver seat as, you know, said driver reaches for way too long into the bag in the passenger seat, because I can’t find! What I’m looking for! In my bag!I mean, that’s just one problem I guess I can kind of see some other, less-prepared, more-unorganized handbag schleppers possibly having.
The only change I could possibly make to this bag would be to add an outside pocket, but the flower on the front may have hypnotized me into believing that is not all that important anymore. Thus, the Roselyn Flower Satchel is definitely on the top of my covet list.
