Ricki Satchel From Bag Blaze @bagblaze #spon

Bag Blaze


I have officially fallen in love with Bag Blaze. They have just about every kind of purse, shoulder bag, satchel, hobo or tote that you could ever desire. All the bags were so cute that choosing one was quite difficult.

Affordable Fashion From Bag Blaze

I decided to go with the Ricki Satchel. One of the great things I love about Bag Blaze is that, for every bag they sale, they have different colors to choose from. For instance, in the bag that I bought, they also have black and gray. I decided to go with the orange.

With this bag, it was love at first sight. One of the first things that caught my eye was the detachable long carrying strap that comes with the bag (turning it instantly into a messenger bag!) This allows me to be able to carry the bag on my shoulder instead of holding it in my hand all day. Also, the gold buckles and studs really go well with the color of the messenger bag. The Ricki Satchel is very high-end looking, but for a very low-end cost! It is low key enough to be used everyday, but it’s also cute enough to go with something a bit more formal!

Another great thing about the Ricki Satchel is that it has plenty of space! It has a pocket that zips up on both the inside and outside. It also has a somewhat hidden pocket on the front that buttons. And let’s not forget the cellphone holder on the inside – which is a must-have as far as I am concerned. I like the cell phone pouch because it saves me from having to dig around for minutes looking for my phone. It also protects my phone from whatever may be in the abyss that is the bottom of my purse! All I have to do is reach in and grab it right away!

If you didn’t instantly fall in love with my purse like I did, you might like some of the other purses that they offer. They have several different styles to choose from including satchels, hobos, totes, and clutches. Personally I like the messenger bags most but might not agree. Bag Blaze has so many styles, we can all be happy!

  9. My favorite purse ever is one that I actually made myself from a Lazy Girl pattern … it had lots of pockets and I used some of my favorite green and purple fabrics. Unfortunately, it eventually wore out and I had to replace it. One of these days I say I’d like to make myself another one, but I need to find the spare time first LOL! Until then, I’m on the search for the elusive “perfect” bag.
