More Miche Love, with the Big Bag!

Before I was a mom I had a bunch of cute purses. I would frequently change them to match my outfit, my mood, or just because I was bored. Then I had kids, and my purse never changed until it was falling apart (because who has time to move all that stuff when there's a screaming kid and you still haven't showered for the day?).

Hello, Miche Bag. Miche Bags are these great designer handbags that let you switch your style in less than a minute. I can be a cute, handbag matching, mood changing momma?!? Yippee!!!

Since her giveaway just ended I'm sure most of you remember SIMPLE mom Jaime's original review of the Classic Miche Bag (found here). I'm going to concentrate on the Miche Big Bag since that is the great style I got to try out. :)

Basically, you start with a base (Big Base, shown left) and then choose whatever shells you'd like to change out your style with. The Miche Big Bag base slides right into any Big Bag shell and secures with magnetic flaps at the top. The magnetic flaps are also how you close the top of your Big Bag. This magnetic closure is secure enough that everything doesn't spill out when your purse tips over in the car, but easy enough to open with only one hand.

Inside the base there are slots for your credit cards, a zippered pocket for holding cosmetics or small items, two pen (or lip gloss) holders, and a couple other pockets for holding those items you want to be able to easily find. Ahhh... (that's my sigh of organizational contentment). Plus, I still have room for my 'momsentials' for those times when I don't want to tote a big diaper bag around.


I've been trying out the Natasha (left) and the Sophie (right) shells and am totally addicted to my Miche Big Bag already! I just love that they are such totally different looking styles, and I barely have to do anything to switch my look!

I have to note that the Miche Big Bag is a 'slouchy' purse. When I put my Big Bag down on a flat surface, it slouches over and gets that trendy 'slouchy' look. This isn't apparent in the pictures of the shells, but is really great to know.

GET YOUR OWN!!! The Miche Big Bag is available from MicheBag.com along with the Classic Miche Bag and Mini Miche Bag. They even offer some great accessories, like different strap styles, to customize your look!

WIN YOUR OWN!! One lucky SIMPLE reader will win one of these fabulous designer bags by Miche. You will receive a Miche Big Bag, plus the Natasha and Sophie shells pictured above! To be entered, please visit MicheBag.com and come back to tell us what shell you like best! (Don't forget to include your email address!)
