One of the things I really love about working on PurseBlog Savvy is that I get a chance to look at bags that are actually reasonably priced. In addition to this, I come across brands that I’m not familiar with. We are all familiar with brands like Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton or Chanel, but until I had the chance to work on this site, I had never heard of a brand like IRO. Now that I have, I am pretty happy. Granted, I don’t own one of these bags but if I were to, this one might be an option.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to expect when I came across the IRO Arki Studded Bag. I usually hold my breath for just a second when I see the word “studded” in the name of a bag. I never know what to expect. Yet with this bag, studs are almost an after thought. They are there, but they definitely are not in your face. I am really enjoying the soft yet not boring color of the bag. At the same time, the leather looks completely smooshy and supple. The zippered shoulder strap isn’t my favorite, but at the same time, it is a unique detail. This would be a nice option for when you are feeling a bit edgy, yet not too edgy. Buy through Shopbop for $382.
