Last month we discussed a bag brand relatively new to PurseBlog, DeMellier, and while we love getting the conversation started when we discover a brand, nothing beats seeing it in person. We decided to get our hands on a bag from DeMellier, and today we’re not only giving you a better review of DeMellier, but we’re coming at you with a seriously great deal too. DeMellier’s bags are already incredibly affordable, which is why we were excited to cover them further in depth, but it just so happens that the bag we chose to get a good look at is currently on sale thanks to Shopbop’s big fall sale. That’s right, you can currently snag the DeMellier Mini Oslo Bag for just $276, and spoiler alert: you should.
At first glance this DeMellier bag is incredibly well crafted for the price (the original retail is $395). It’s made of calfskin leather with a croc-embossed flap. It’s structured in shape and though the leather is soft to the touch, because of the structure it’s a bit stiff, which is one downside to this bag. There’s an adjustable strap, and the bag is finished with a magnetic snap closure. The overall craftsmanship of the bag, which is made in Spain, is impressive nonetheless, considering it’s priced well below $500.
True to its name, this bag is mini, and if you don’t normally carry a mini bag this is the perfect opportunity to add one to your collection. If your day to day bag requires a lot of interior space you’re probably hesitant to buy a mini bag you’ll only use once in a while. This bag won’t break the bank, which makes it a great choice! The interior of this bag is lined and has one small zippered pocket. The overall dimensions are 5″ L x 7″ W x 2.25″ D, and after your smartphone, it can also hold a small wallet, a thin protein bar (I always have a snack!), a couple of lip tubes, a small mirror and sunglasses in a microfiber pouch.
