I wanted a shoulder bag that could be:
Versatile enough to be worn casually or dressed up
Big enough to fit put my wallet, makeup and cell phone
Well made & Sturdy with soft leather
Adjustable & detachable straps so I can wear it many ways
I ordered this Botkier Valentina Shoulder bag during the Bloomingdale F&F event hoping it would be the perfect shoulder bag that would fulfill all attributes I'm looking for. I wanted to love this bag, but it just missed the mark by a bit. I wished the straps were adjustable and detachable. I think this bag would look nice if the straps were shorter when worn as a shoulder bag. It would have been great if the straps can be removed so I can carry it as a clutch. I also wore it as a cross-body (see below), but I think it would looked better if the straps could be adjusted to be longer. I'm going to return this bag and keep looking for my perfect shoulder bag.
What do you think? Love it, hate it or just okay?
