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!!!
