Description: Handbag with detachable strap

Website: Charles and Keith

This bag was such a unique shape so it really caught my attention. If you know me, you know that I love really unique designs and special features on a bag. This bag was adorably boxy shaped, but also soft to the touch.

It is a medium-sized bag with two top handles and a detachable shoulder strap. It can be hand carried or worn cross-body. Cross-body is a great hands-free option, although the boxy nature of the bag can make it a little awkward to sit against your hips.

It has one large main compartment once the zip is opened. It also has decent sized back zipper pocket and two other slip pockets on the other size.

The material is polyurethane and is quite soft but still holds it’s shape. The lining is good quality material that feels very durable. The bag has good quality light gold hardware.

The zips, clips and metal details are high quality and unique in design. Two areas that catch your eye are the clips where the detachable straps attach to the bag, and also, the unique way the zip and end fasten securely. The zip closure on the bag is really what caught my attention. It is a large zip that secures with a clip on one end, and the other zip end also has a clip.

Large zip locks into place with this clip. There is one on the other side too to secure the other end.

There is also a key fob that hangs on the outside of the bag with the key ring protected inside the fob. This is a really nice touch that adds class to the bag.

The quality of the seams and attachments are very good.

This is my first Charles and Keith bag, so I’ve not much to compare it with, but friend’s of mine have had C and K bags before, and have been pleased with the quality.

I really love using this bag and will enjoy using it in future. I would not use it as an everyday bag due to it’s unique shape, but more for special occasions.
