So, are there really people out there trying to make this whole alpine-bohemian thing happen for winter? Because if there are, I must protest vociferously. In the words of the immortal LOLCats: Do. Not. Want.
Perhaps my personal cultural bias is showing in this opinion, but to me, the JADEtribe Safi Bag looks like it would smell like hacky sack, body odor and patchouli.
And if those three things are parts of life that you enjoy, plus you have some extra scratch lying around, then this might be the perfect bag for you. I warn all others, however, that this bag is nowhere near acceptable for the average person. It might seem like a cute idea, but the busy patterns and extra crap hanging off of it take this bag from sweetly bohemian to downright unnecessary.
Perhaps if the designers could have restrained themselves from the strap medallions, clashing fabric tubes (what?), and cheaply beaded flower add-on, I could have gotten on board with this, maybe. As it stands, no thank you. Buy through ShopBop for $305.
