I'm so excited to share with you my first Tory Burch purchase! I've been stalking her designs for awhile now, looking to invest in the perfect piece to fit into my every day lifestyle. Finally, on ShopBop, I struck gold with the Amalie Adjustable Mini Bag.
After that, it took about two more days to decide between Black and Nutmeg. In the end, Nutmeg won out because I feel like if I just want a plain black bag then the purse itself should be a little flashier in terms of hardware.
What ShopBop says about the Tory Burch Amalie Bag:
Designed with 3 compartments and accented with a topstitched T, this Tory Burch bag is a chic way to carry the essentials. Antiqued hardware and adjustable cross-body strap. Lined.
Weight: 20oz / 0.56kg.
Height: 5.5in / 14cm
Length: 8in / 20.5cm
Depth: 3in / 7.5cm
Strap drop: 24in / 61cm
In terms of being exactly what I was looking for, this bag is a win. I love the color, texture and overall look and design. Three zippered pockets mean I can keep organized and the box shape is actually quite roomy.
My biggest gripe, is the adjustable strap is simply "stick this rivet through the hole and pray it doesn't come undone". Which it did. In the middle of the mall. My whole deal with wanting a cross body was so that I was hands and worry free so I could keep tabs on my kids. I really don't want to have to stress out about a bag too. I was definitely disappointed because other than that, it's exactly perfect. I am hoping that this one just had a dud for a strap and an exchange will fix it!
The Tory Burch Amalie Adjustable Mini Bag retails for $350 and this particular design can be purchased at ShopBop.
