Miche – Classic Bag & 3 Shells – CLOSED

Before review blogging, I owned just a few purses.  I didn’t realize how much of a fashion accessory a purse was – it’s more than just a place to store junk!  A nice purse really makes an outfit complete.  I am realizing that it would be very easy to get carried away with purses (like shoes).  The only really annoying thing about owning more than one purse, is changing it with every outfit.  I have to take out my wallet, keys, lipsticks, and everything else that might have accumulated in my purse.  Sometimes, while changing out my purse, I have forgotten important things – like my credit card!  How does that happen?  Not sure, but leave it up to me,,,, it’s happened (more than once – why do I divulge this information to all of you?!?).

For all of you that like to change things up with different looks, there is an amazing purse out there that makes this task super easy!  Miche is the ultimate interchangeable purse.  I was sent the classic Miche purse and 3 shells for review.  I had heard of and seen Miche bags before, so I was very excited to put them to the test.

I want to start off by saying that changing the shells is so so so easy, it takes about 10 seconds (or less) to completely change the look of my purse, and there is no way that I am going to forget anything in my old purse (because the purse itself didn’t change).  There are a few different types of shells, the slouchy shells cover the entire purse and even give your purse a new more of a hobo style look, and the other shell is a little harder and gives your purse a clutch look (just a little bigger).

The shells stick to the Miche bag with a magnet, and it’s pretty strong!  There is no way that the shell can come off the purse without being physically taken off.  The magnets at the top of the purse keep the shells in place at all times.  But when I want to change the look of my purse, I simply pull the magnets apart take the shell off and replace – seriously, that simple.

The great thing about the Miche bags is that there is nearly endless choices in shells – but before you pick your shells, you have to pick your base.  There are 2 choices – brown or black.  I chose the black, because I seem to wear a lot more black than brown.  Then comes the really fun (and hard) part – choosing the shells.  Like I mentioned before, there are 2 styles of shells, the slouchy shells that gives your purse a bit of poof, it has four sides and completely covers your base purse .  I chose 2 different slouchy shells, the Ashley which is a brand new line (not even on the internet yet).  It is a fun corduroy type material with summery flowers.  This shell also has a flap that closes the purse, if you don’t like to use zippers.  This is great for summer days.  I also received the Linda slouchy style shell.  This one is a nice black with little bumps for extra style and an extra pocket on the outside for quick access to change or lip chap.  This style is very nice for a classy purse for an evening out.  I also received the Josie which is a hard shell with fun green orange and black dots – great for a nice summer evening out.  This is the easiest shell to change because there are only 2 sides to it.

The Miche classic bag is not a large bag I can put my wallet, sunglasses, my camera and a few other things in there, there is also one zipper pocket and two elastic type pockets.  If you want a bigger bag, there is a brand new bigger bag called the Max.  It’s much larger and has the same interchangeable capabilities to change your purse as your style changes.

On top of changing the purse shell, you can also change the straps.  This takes just a few more minutes than changing the shells.  The rings are like a carribeaner that has a little collapsible part (it needs to be pushed).  It’s easy to take off one strap and put on another.  My Miche Bag came with 3 different straps all together.  Short ones, longer ones with metal chains and longer straps.  To be honest, I didn’t even realize that the straps could be changed till the good people at Miche told me (that’s how solid the rings are).  My favourite straps are the long ones, makes the purse reach my hips.

Overall, I absolutely love my Miche bag!  It is so adorable and it’s so easy to change the look of the bag with my outfit and emotions.  The shells don’t take up a lot of space either, which is great when you feel like your house is bursting at the seams!

When you purchase the classic bag, it also comes with 3 choices of shells, but good luck picking just three.  If you want more you can purchase 3 shells for $60.  I have another great things to tell you about Miche:  Five dollars from each of the Hope Shells goes toward the Childhood Cancer Foundation!  – YEAH MICHE!!!

  1. I was just explaining these purses to my sister today – I LOVE them so much! I really want to design my own custom shell! I like Crystal, Lydia (tan), and Elizabeth. Thanks for the chance!!

  2. What a difficult choice- they are all great! I think my favorites are Crystal, Madelynn, and Elizabeth.

  3. What a fun idea. I would like a small black bag with Sabrina, Sidney, and Jamie (although I really like Purple Ellie and Joie, too!).

  4. fb fan
    (Debbie Watson)

    I guess I should clarify my choices (Unlike my previous post)
    The Miche Big Bag, with the Belle,Shawna, and the Laney

    Sorry, I got confused.

  5. Ohhh I would love a Miche Bag!!! If I won I would choose the class brown Miche bag. For the shells I’d love the Miralee, the Crystal, and the Stacey (light brown). Can I also throw in a purse organizer? lol!

  6. What a great product! I like the small Miche Black bag with the Natalie,
    Melissa and Pink Cori shells.

  7. Crystal, Pink Cori, Black Ellie would be my selections, but you’re right
    , it’s hard to choose.

  8. I really like the custom shell ENIGMATIC FLOWER BY TRACY WILKERSON. I also like these shells: Purple Ellie, Stacy (light brown) and the Natalie. Thanks for the great giveaway:)

  9. Love, love, love these bags! I would go with the Stacy (in black and tan) as well as the Madelynn. So hard to pick just three 🙂 Thanks for the chance!

  10. Wow, so many choices. I would choose the small black bag with the hope, Jodi, and Elizabeth bags. Thanks!

  11. Wow, in the time it took me to read your review and choose my shells, the comments went from 20 to 220! Anyway, I would choose the brown bag, with the shells of Joie, Stacy (light brown), adn the Lydia (Coral Pink). SO CUTE> hard to choose!

  12. I would choose the basic black bag with these shells: Laney, Lexi, and Mary.

  13. Love the Elizabeth, Sidney (dark red), and Madelynn!

  16. I love purple — so I choose Natalie, Madelynn, and Tori. Great contest!

  17. Tough decision! Here are some of my favorites:
    Darla, Lydia, Brittany, Stacy, Black Ellie

  18. I would choose the black Miche Base Bag and the Sidney, Christ and Annie for the shells. This is such a great idea!

  19. Now THIS is a really innovative idea!! I love to be able to swap bags, but can’t do it quickly or with much organization because of all the “stuff” I carry with me all the time. Being able to just swap shells would be fantastic! Love it! I like the Pink Bloom, Martini HOur, and Celebration. You’re right – it’s hard to choose!! 🙂

  21. These bags look amazing!! What a neat idea. I like he black small bag with Stacy (black), Lydia (Coral Pink) and Miralee

  22. I would choose the miche big bag, the lexi, erin and robin shell


  23. I would choose the black bag,
    long straps, with the shells: Crystal,
    Ellie Copper and the beautiful Madelyn!

  24. The only thing that would be better than the black Miche classic I have would be to have a BROWN one as well!! Then there would be NO LIMIT to shells!! I love my Miche and recommend it to people everywhere I go. I would love to have some of the new shells that have the ends and pockets. If I won, I would choose the Jayma, Lydia(pink) and Vivian(mustard)… but anything would be wonderful!! Unfortunately I missed out on the Kimberly before it was retired 🙁
    I am a member of Miche through Facebook and am going to join My Wee View as soon as I finish this message!!

  25. I am a FaceBook fan. I love this bag! I think it’s such a wonderful thing to not have to change all my stuff over every time I want a different bag! My favourite shells are Angela, Jodi and Darla. 🙂

  26. So many choices, it was very difficult to choose which ones were the best, but I love Kelly, a fuller look than the others, Hayley Vivian and Kandance, love the new shape of these, I would love to add to my collection!

  27. I’ve never been the type of person to change my purse regularly so when I heard about the Miche Bag I thought it was a great idea. I could change my purse without the hassle of moving all the items from one bag to another. I love the Zoe (Pink), Purple Ellie, and the Annie.

  28. I have never been a purse person, it was just something to put the necessitites in, i truly love the Miche bag, what a wonderful idea.

  29. I absolutely fell in love with the Miche bags when I saw them in Costco and got the small bag with three shells. I also have the Max bag with two shells!!! I love the Miralee, Melissa and Elizabeth in small and for the max Deanna and Laney!

  30. This bag is the best invention for me, I would never think about my purse because I never had the time to clean it out and start over with another one just for an outfit! I love the black base with the Elizabeth, Madelyn and Darla.

  31. I love this bag and am a fan on Facebook. I love the Pricilla, Crystal
    and the Vivian. Actually love them all but that would be my top three
    right now. 🙂

  32. I love my Miche bag and am delighted to have gotten a Miche Max “Cheryl”
    so now I can choose big or little

  33. I love the Jade and Black Tiffany and those would be in my first 3 choices except they are apparently retiring. So if those weren’t available I’d choose the Sidney, Christa, and Madelynn – in that order.

  40. Love these purses! They carry them in a salon near my home,have always wanted one! My favorite is “carry me away”. My husband would probably pick “Deer season” if he had a choice! Thanks for the contest!

  41. I LOVE my Miche bag! I am a purseaholic and buy purses that catch my eye and then they go on top of the pile I have already collected in a trunk, never to be used again. Well I spotted the Miche bags while shopping at Costco and absolutely fell in love with the Max purses and all the beautiful and different styles. It took me ages to choose because I loved them all but I took solace in the fact I could buy more shells online. I have been using it ever since and there is no way these bags will end up on the pile in the trunk. Everywhere I go I get compliments on my purse and I show them how versatile it is and tell them what a bargain they are because you are literally getting three purses for the price of one. I also speak of the ability to pack different shells for travel and then tell them where they can get theirs. I am so excited about the entire concept I have become one of Miche’s best advertisements. *LOL* I really can’t say enough about my bags and now I want the smaller set to round out my collection. Now with my purseaholic tendencies, I can actually buy purses I am going to use and change them on whim, buying only one brand that I have come to love and trust. So thank you Miche….you have made me a VERY happy woman.

  42. I’d love the Miche bag in black with shells in:
    Lydia (tan)
    Stacy (black)

    Thank you!

  43. I would choose the Stacey, Tori and Taylor Shells.
    Thank you so much for the chance to win.


  44. I would take the black bag with the Ashley shell, the Lydia (tan) shell, and the Sidney (dark red) shell.
