Help me out here, what do you think about drawstring handbags? Although this isn’t the first time you are reading that I am on the fence about something, but I really don’t know here. I’ve never owned a drawstring handbag in fear that the drawstring feature will do nothing but get on my nerves. Yet, when I came across the Lucky Brand Tulip Leather Drawstring Satchel I had to stop and think twice. I find myself leaning towards liking this handbag. I think more than anything, it is the deep, rich color of the leather. The shape, color and size of the bag all work well together. It seems to be a great choice for a day to day bag. But for those of you who have owned a drawstring bag, do you like it or did you grow to hate it? This particular bag looks sturdy enough to last for several seasons of wear and tear. Buy through Zappos for $177.95.

    I own this bag and I love it. The drawstrings are a little stiff and not annoying at all.

    personally, it looks “old-lady-like”

    Mine is greenish-blue so it looks pretty modern :)

    I find it very hard to be organized in a drawstring bag. I tried one and was digging around constantly for various things and it was very frustrating.

    I consider myself a real “bag lady” and over the years I have had quite a few of these bags. I would not suggest this type of bag for everyday use – everything goes to the bottom and yes it gets very annoying. However I have always liked the look of the bag and found it very easy to wear.
    The ones I have used over and over are the ones with the softest leather or material, because of the ease of working the drawstrings.
