I'm zooming to the next blog post because these bags are very low in stock (if they haven't sold already!)! I've been using this bag as much as I can for the past 2 weeks and here's my review! Please enjoy! ♥
I ordered the ASOS Scallop Trim Satchel Bag when it was on sale a few weeks ago for $19.50 (originally $33)! I got this bag because I was desperately needing a brown bag to match with my outfits!
Physically, the bag matches the stock photo exactly! Weirdly enough, when I ordered the bag it didn't have any specifications about the bag size, but now it does? (and they're mixed up..) It had a model holding the bag, and it looked small/medium to me so with that (and the sale price) in mind I ordered it! The bag from my measurements is around 6'' tall, 8'' deep, and 3'' wide!
The little flaps on the front don't magnetically snap closed with the bag like I thought it would, you have to slip it in the loops, which I find so annoying.
ASOS is always really fast with shipping and I usually get my items within a week and a half just on standard shipping! This time felt a bit longer, but I hadn't ordered anything since last year.
Up close, the bag is a really pretty chocolate brown shade and has a leather feel! (It says "leather-look" on the site, so I'm assuming it's faux leather.) The straps are not adjustable and in my opinion it's kinda short for a crossbody bag. I can wear it across my body and it hits around my waist! (I'm 5'2.5 for reference).
The inside of the bag is this cheap-ish black fabric that seems to be apparent in most bags. There's only one pocket on the inside and it's small so I don't use it at all.
Since it's only a little over 8'' deep inside I can only fit my keys, cellphone, wallet, lip balm, and pocket Filofax! I like roomier bags where I can hold at least one water bottle, my 3DS or PS Vita, and a book, so the size of this really didn't click with me.
The handle at the top of the bag is one of my favorite features of it because I can just grab it and go!
Overall, I use this bag a lot and I'd recommend it if you don't need a lot of room space (like I do!) It's adorable, the scalloped detail is precious, the color goes well with so many different outfits, and it's faux leather material is really durable!
However, I don't like the size sometimes, the purse strap is shorter than I find comfortable, and the little flaps in the front not being magnetized is a nuisance.
I give this bag a 7/10! ♡
