MicheBag recently gave me the opportunity to try their revolutionary MicheBag, as well as giving a set away to one of my readers. The MicheBag company is run by two young moms from Utah, and was created when Michelle, one of the moms, spilt something on the outside of the bag, and thought how great it would be if you only had to replace the outside of your bag and not the whole thing. Thus, the MicheBag was created; a base bag, and detachable outer shells that snap on and off in seconds.
Replacing a damaged outer is not the only benefit. For busy moms, it means that you can change your handbag to match your outfit in just seconds, instead of the drama that is usually incurred as we transfer the copious contents of our bag from one to another. The concept is also quite frugal, as you only need to purchase additional outer shells to get a whole new look, instead of a whole new bag.
MicheBag sent me a black base, and two shells:
The Lydia shell ($29.95) is a bright coral orange cord, and would be perfect to brighten up winter outfits. I found this one the most useful, as it had two outer pockets at each end of the bag, which I found useful to hold the baby bottles.
The Cori shell ($24.99) is a silver/black faux crocodile, and would be great for dressier outfits. It has a really sleek and simple feel, but the metallic silver embossed croc adds another dimension. Again, this bag is perfect for the upcoming fall/winter season and will really tie in with the greys and jewel tones of the season.
I loved the concept, but unfortunately, this won't be able to replace my baby bag just yet! Also, I am more of a believer in investing in one or two longlasting leather totes that go with everything rather than faux leather (so please, MicheBag, come up with some leather shells!). However, the bags and the shells are really well made and if you like swicthing up your bag all the time, you will love the MicheBag.
And now for the giveaway! I have one black base and 2 shells to give away thanks to MicheBag.
