Meet the fantastic Fendi DotCom bag

We all know that Fendi is one of the best brands nowadays respecting to bags, of course. They’re revolutionizing the fashion world with each collection, and today, you’ll meet a keeper. The DotCom bag, apart from having a unique name, is a stunning bag that will give you the perfect touch to any outfit. The first impression of the bag is that offers a right size, where you can put all your goodies inside.

Surprisingly, Fendi doesn’t have (yet) the same popularity as others brands like Gucci or Louis Vuitton. The truth is, you can count on a top-notch quality as others famous brands. Trust me, the durability, the class, and the material of the Fendi’s bag will not let you down. The DatCom bag was launched in 2016, you may think was a long time ago, but so many of you didn’t know about this one, so I need to put it in here despite its age on the market. The bag has a lot of reputation, and it’s on trend still, so don’t worry about it.

In fact, as the bag doesn’t have much popularity, you can be sure that you’ll stand out wherever you go. You may be surprised with the compartments of the bag and the room that has for your essentials items, believe me, you’ll not have to leave anything behind.

There are few aspects of this design that makes it unique. The dot in the center is a leather pouch that is attached to the main compartment of the bag. You can quickly remove it and use it independently with other bags or alone as you prefer. As a thick leather bag, the weight is not heavy, on the contrary, is a perfect squared silhouette with a comfortable weightiness.

The interior of the bag is as beautiful as the outside. It has two significant sections where you can place all you need, and the material is microfiber. Apart from the two primary partitions, you have others multiple compartments to put your belongings. The clutch inside the bag that is attached to the stud in the middle of the bag came in a contrasting shade that gives more personality to the interior of the bag.

Leather, materials, and colors

One of the greatest aspects of this design is that you have many options to choose from. You have two different types: Calf leather of DotCom Quilting. For the colors, you have a big palette to pick your favorite one, from black to yellow; you can use this amazing accessory for any clothing.

Also, I forgot to mention that you have a detachable shoulder strap or the single top handle to use them as you feel more comfortable. For a casual event you can put your shoulder strap, and in the dinner time, you can easily remove it, and you’ll be ready!

J’adior handbag

 

One of the latest creations of the most significant bag franchise Dior is the bag: J’adior. The brand keeps surprising their fans with a unique piece that stepped outside of the prior designs that we have appreciated throughout time. Prepare yourself for the fashion accessory that you’ll want to have in your closet.

You have the opportunity to choose from two J’adior bags. The first one is the J’adior Flap bag that has a chain strap. This bag has a unique attitude that will give her owner an instant confident boldness in every step; seriously, this bag is like no other. It has its name (J’adior) in a beautiful gold color that combines with everything. You can use it with the chain strap or through the handclasp for a comfy hand carrying.

The second J’adior Flap Bag, comes with an adjustable strap with the gold signature on it. This beautiful and classy bag can be quickly transformed from a standard clutch to a comfy shoulder bag. In both cases, the bag will give you the perfect touch to your outfit for any occasion. Both creations are designed to fulfill any needs, from an elegant dinner to a casual lunch with your friends.

If you didn’t know, the name is a wordplay that means: I love Dior. The correct spelling in French is “J’adore,” and they cleverly make a small change to create this outstanding bag.

Dimensions:

-J’adior with chain

Size: 25 x 16.5 x 6.5 cm

-J’adior with shoulder strap

Size: 23 x 14.5 x 5.5 cm

As you see, the dimensions are perfect to keep your most important items; is no too big and either, is no too small. Comes with the perfect size to fit the things that you need. This design was released the past summer, but it’s still on trend, and for sure, it will endure over time. The interior of the bag is more than amazing; it’s like an organized wallet where you can put all your cards and documents. Also, has a zipper compartment to place your keys and money.

The interior of the one with the shoulder strap is even bigger than the other, but at the same time, it’s a bit simpler. It has a big compartment where you can put your phone, wallet, etc., along with a slip pocket compartment to place your cards. You can choose from three different colors: White, red and black. The perfect ones, don’t you think? The three of them are entirely adaptable to any outfit that you wear. Just pick your favorite and use it for everything!

For sure, the distinctive part of the bags is the way they decided to place the signature on the two designs. It’s simple but at the same time is strong, feminine, and generates some kind of toughness to the bag. For some of you may be exaggerated, but I believe they look amazing and classy. Do you love it or not so much?

Prada Saffiano Double Zip Tote Bag

If you’re a designer bag aficionado, this handbag requires little introduction. The Prade Saffiano tote is one of the staples of classic handbag fashion. Something that joins the class of LV Speedy or Chanel 2.55.

It truly is one of the classics which kind of surprises me as to why I haven’t done a review of this beauty yet. So today, I’m rectifying just that.

The Prada Saffiano Double Zip tote has always been my go-to when I want fashion and true functionality.  For starters, the structure and silhouette of the double zip tote is pretty solid. It’s something that, with proper care, won’t get misshapen.  So let me list out the specific ways why I love this bag:

The leather is tough

For the fashion lover on the go, quality leather is a must. While it is normal for bags to get scuffled or scratched, quality handbags last so much longer than most. I’m happy to report that despite over a decade of usage, the leather on my Prada Saffiano Double Zip is still pretty solid.

As you know Prada uses treated calf leather with a crossed hatched design. It’s durable and as I’ve found out through the years, fairly scratch resistant. While for others it may not feel as soft as other leathers but if you’re looking for durability, you won’t be disappointed with this design.

When you love fashion, you need to be more discerning about the quality of the leather you choose. Sadly, there are bags out there that have sensitive leather. While those have their purposes, if you’re looking for something you can use as an everyday bag–the Saffiano Double Zip is for you

I’m able to fit more than I initially thought

Space is always an issue with designer handbags. Often there might be too little space or even the opposite–too much of it! For a structured tote, I honestly thought I wouldn’t be able to fit much of my everyday things into it.  My size is the medium one, in case you’re wondering. For the nitty-gritty the dimensions are 13 x 9.5 x 5.5 inches.

To give you a strong idea of what this baby can fit, I’m going to list out what’s currently in my bag. Let’s see: sunglasses, sunglasses case, a small pouch bag, my passport holder/passport, a small planner, a large planner, card holders, lip products (six), phones (3), makeup bag, pens, keys (5).

That’s the contents for a short weekend trip. Now imagine the everyday work load.

This bag is pretty work appropriate 

The struggle with fashion back then was a lot of bags were either too flashy or really didn’t get the job done in terms of space. I bought my Saffiano Double Zip tote specifically with work in mind.

What I really love about it is that I have the option to carry it on my shoulder since there’s an attachable strap. For lighter days, I carry it in the crook of my arm but the other option has been a lifesaver particularly if the iPads and small laptop is in the bag.

What I love about this design is that the colors it’s available in. So you’re able to still show a bit of personality with a color like Marble or Caramel but still be work environment appropriate.

Now, I don’t want to give this tote perfect points since there are still incidents of wear and tear. I’m going to list some things I don’t like about this bag.

The zipper can be…trying 

The inner zipper is rather difficult to open and close. It’s also be steadily tarnishing through the years. Even at the early years of its life, the zippers don’t really zip that smoothly.

The resale value isn’t much

Not that I’m planning on selling my baby, mind you. But if you are a person with resale in mind, this bag may not be for you. As of recent store prices, the Saffiano Double Zip will hit you for about $1950. So do think about that first before you go off and buy a bag you’re not planning on keeping long-term.

Beyond that, I’d like to say that the Prada Saffiano Double Zip Tote is still something I would buy if it came out as a new product in the market today. That’s how much I’ve come to appreciate it’s durability.
