I’ve said it in previous posts before, but in case you missed it: Until recently I hadn’t owned a purse since having my first baby almost 8 years ago. 8 years I’ve been carrying a diaper bag. Yikes.
If you’ve never seen Miche bags, prepare to be wowed. Here’s the concept: You choose a base bag- the size and shape you prefer. Then you choose a shell (or 2 or 3 or 4 or…) and you’re set! Now you have a bag to match every outfit you own, or-like me- a few bags to mix it up a bit when you get bored. There are 4 base bags to choose from, and more shells than you could need; but trust me, you’ll want them all.
After spending hours drooling and debating over which base bag and shells I should get, (I’m totally serious when I say hours), I chose the Prima base bag (large at 5 inches wide, 15 inches long and 12 inches tall)
and 3 fabulous shells:
The inside of the Prima base bag has a large zippered pocket, a side pocket that is perfect for my sunglasses, and 2 more pockets that I currently use for tissues, gum, a small nail file, and whatever other little things I may need to throw in there.
I knew that the shells could be changed, but until I got the bag I didn’t really know exactly how. Maybe it’s the same for you. Well no worries, I’m here to share my knowledge (ha). 🙂
Each shell has magnets along the top in 2 strips- one above, one below- which fold over the top of the base bag. The magnets attract to one another, causing the shell to be securely attached to the base bag.
The magnets in each side of the shell also attract to one another, fully sealing the top of the purse closed and eliminating the need for a zippered closure!
Now to the shells. OH the shells. First, are they all not awesome?! I just love them, and really can’t pick a favorite from what I received because they are each so different. Each prima shell sold is unique, though it appears as if all of them have small pockets on each end (each of the ones I chose do). These pockets are the perfect size for keys, cell phone, tissues… Whatever you may need handy in an instant. The Lexi and Morgan shells each have open pockets on the end, while the Vanessa shell has a magnetic closure on each.
Not only does Miche offer different shells, but they also offer different handles as well, allowing you to change up the length, look, and style of your bag. The handles go on and come off easily with clips!
I love that I can change my bag without having to worry about taking all of my stuff out of one bag and transferring it to the other bag. Just pull out the base bag and put it into the other shell. So easy, and SO fast!
This base bag is also perfect for me because it is big enough to hold all of my things, as well things for the baby too.
So far I’ve found I can get my things in (wallet, makeup bag, sunglasses, etc), as well as a few diapers, the case of wipes, and even a sippy cup and a change of clothes for Connor if I need to bring them along!
