Fashionista Nicole Lee Handbag Review + #Fashionistagiveaway Coming Soon

I am a sucker for a barrel bag. Just something about the shape make me get all starry-eyed. So you can image how I lite up when my Nicole Lee Candace EM1899 arrived. I was in handbag heaven for several moments.

Then I got all professional for several moments and went to work trying out all the zippers, closures and handle attachments. Everything was in designer handbag top quality. The pattern was clean and perfectly aligned. The stitching held tight to a tug from even my infant.

At 13.5″ in length, 8.75″ in height and 7.5″ in width, there is a lot of room to be admired with the Candace Barrel. My only complaint is that I wish there was more compartments for items that I need to get to quickly like my cellphone. Though this can be overlooked after seeing how well this bag mixes with everything from jeans to dresses.

Overall I am happy with the selection and quality Nicole Lee offers with the addition of the EM1899 Candace and will continue to purchase their handbags.
