Bag of the Moment: Kate Spade's Cedar Street Harmony

Last week, my reliable everyday bag finally gave out.  I actually used it for a good year and it held every essential thing I needed everyday before it was forced to retire.

So, for two days, I was on the hunt for a new everyday bag.  I knew that I didn't want an expensive bag, the type that I would be a slave to (I've been there and I've done that and I don't want to do it again, haha!) but I also didn't want one that may be inexpensive but the quality is compromised.

After scouring my favorite stores, I finally ended up with my bag of the moment, Kate Spade's Cedar Street Harmony.  There are just too many things that I like about this bag, I love that it's a shopper type bag with a structured form.  It doesn't get floppy when there's nothing much inside, it still retains it's form. 


It's made of saffiano leather (similar to the leather used in Prada bags) which is durable and almost scratch resistant.  I chose the one in medium (measures 12.5'' height  x 13.3'' width x 6.6'' depth and has a drop length of 9''), which is just the right size for my frame.

I was also instantly attracted to this particular color, which is named bluebell.  I absolutely love that Kate Spade comes out with bags that are colorful, it somehow brightens a drab day or adds a punch to an otherwise monochrome outfit. 


On the front side of the bag is Kate Spade's embossed signature and the spade stud logo in gold


One thing I also like about this bag is that it uses a zip top closure (unlike most shopper type bags which do not have zip top closures), this allows you to go shopping and not worry that there is somebody else's hand inside your bag.  Seriously, this is a deterrent against those who may not have good intentions.

Here's a good shot of the custom woven caroleena spade dot lining, interior zip and double slide pockets.  Isn't that roomy?  Also, the compartments provides enough space for things that you always reach for like your keys, cellphone, business card and hand sanitizer.

Of course, with every purchase, the dust bag is included to protect your bag when putting it in storage
