I love bags and shoes and used to shop so much before I had Kenzie. Now everything is focused on her needs rather than my own or even Hubs. Miche created a unique bag that can be transformed with a simple shell to change the look as often as you'd like (or as your outfit demands). I chose the Prima bag base mostly because I wanted to double-duty it as a diaper bag when necessary. Miche also has great work from home opportunities which would be perfect for those stay at home moms who want a little extra :)
The concept is simple: place base directly inside shell of choice and close magnetic flap of shell over base and voila - ready to use! There are so many shells to choose from for all the bag styles but I went with Donna and Katy (same style but different pattern) because of the fashionable pleated ruffles. The Donna is made of a smooth matte faux leather in cadet grey but the quality is fantastic for the price ($49.95) that one could hardly tell the difference although time will tell. The color is a perfect transition into the Spring season.
The Katy is the ultimate shell for Spring because of the bold rose garden print. I was drawn to it immediately and it just makes you happy when you are toting it around. I took it out to dinner with the inlaws and my mother-in-law complimented it and was surprised I fit all of Kenzie's necessities inside: diapers, wipes, snacks, jacket, toys, lotions and much more. Upon first glance, it doesn't look substantial in size (5" (wide) x 15"(long) x 12" (tall)) but once you start loading, the large capacity is confirmed. I like the two pockets on either side of the bag which can accomodate cups and bubbles, of course. The inside of the bag features two small interior open pockets, one medium open pocket, one large zippered pocket, four credit card slots and two pen holders. This is great for those who want their bag to be super organized.
Both the shells are easy to clean and swap out. I did not have any problems with the shells coming off the base while out and about. The handles are pretty sturdy. The bag itself while empty is pretty light in weight which is a pleasant departure from my norm. Miche Bags come in 4 different bases (with color variations) and the shell selection is extensive for each. One will definitely have fun building their collection. It really is an affordable way of having new bags often without shelling out hundreds/thousands of dollars per bag.
