Ohhhh my gosh! I cannot explain to you how OBSESSED I am! I found the perfect travel purse. THE PERFECT TRAVEL PURSE! What I once thought was never possible… is possible. I am so happy and excited and impressed and thrilled and… you get the point.
Ever had a purse before? Then, I am sure you understand my over-the-top joy for finding a winner. You’d be jumping up and down too. Oh right, I guess I should mention what the name of the actual purse is and why I think it is so all-that huh?
It is called the Sweet Pea Travel Bag and it is from Amy Michelle.
The travel bag is incredible for these main reasons: (1) I can store everything in it, because there are pockets galore and tons of spacious room. (2) It looks stylish and works well with my travel outfits and roller luggage (3) Excellent construction, quality and craftsmanship. Looks and feels of superior quality. Well worth the price.
(1) Store it All – I am a fan of big purses, but I don’t like when they take over your entire outfit – swallow you in their enormousness. This purse is big for sure – 16"L x 6"W x 12.5"H – but it doesn’t take over. And it only weighs 2lbs, so it doesn’t drag you down with excess weigh. It slides nicely on your shoulder or attaches easily to your travel bag. I am seriously impressed that this purse is so big but still has that little bag feeling.
With this purse I found I can carry everything with me and be prepared for anything! (Whatever emergency comes up – I’ve got it covered in my bag!) But when carrying it all, do I ever find that I lose stuff deep within the depths of the main pouch?? Actually no. This bag is an organization freak’s dream – it has what seems like unlimited amounts of pockets, clasps and key hooks – that keep everything in its place and organized. No more loosing car keys in the deep, dark, depths of your purse!
(2) Stylish – Walk around with this purse slung on your shoulder and you’ll get a dozen compliments. It is true, I swear. That is because it is just plain beautiful. The classy design is not only stylish, but it is also practical with the many outside pockets and slots. The patent leather black is smashing. The inside rich red color clashes with the black for a bold look.
This bag has hidden magnetic closures, padded inside pockets, and a lovely name plate. It has one shoulder strap with adjustable clasps and sits upright on its 4 metal feet. I can fit books, tablet, and everything else. I can even put a light jacket inside.
(3) Excellent Design – There was no skimping on materials or supplies when they made this bag. It is high quality… you can feel it in your hands. From the buckles on the front pockets to the 4 metal feet on the bottom — the craftsmanship is incredible. But what if there happens to be something wrong with your bag? No worries, it comes with a one year manufacturer defects warranty.
Since the design is so well done, this bag can take up many forms – great for work, school. travel, everyday toting and even a diaper bag possibility! While I use it as one of my flight attendant work bags, you could use it for however it fits into your life!
So how has it done as my second carry on for my traveling over the last week? It has flown around with me on a dozen or so flights, has ridden over my shoulder and hooked to my roller bag. It has been at my feet, under the seat and placed on hotel desks. It has stood the test of a long international and domestic travel this past week. This was a quick test, but I can already tell that this bag will last in the long run, and that is why this bag such a great travel tote.
Overall, here is nothing I don’t like about the bag… But if I have to be critic (because that is what good reviewers do) I would say… depending on your preference – you might want a top zipper instead of the magnetic closure. For me, I like the hidden magnetic closure because I can get stuff in and out quickly, easy access. But I know some people are zipper fans – they are more secure, more private.
If you are looking for a zipper closure, I would recommend checking out a different bag at Amy Michelle, because from the week that I tested this bag already – I can tell it will be a favorite of mine for a long, long time.
