Now what do we have here? Dare I say I’ve come across a messenger bag that I actually enjoy? For those of you who have come to know me and my handbag likes and dislikes, you know that I haven’t really latched onto messenger bags. It’s not that I don’t like the shape, I guess I just have never given them much of a chance. I’d go for a great tote or hobo before a messenger bag any day. However, the Steven by Steve Madden Snake Charmer Zip Messenger Bag is making me think twice.
I instantly stopped when I came across this bag. The snakeskin-printed leather trims the bag which is made of tonal suede and leather. Add the great hardware and chain shoulder strap and you have a very artistic handbag. I wouldn’t over stuff this bag with too many things because I fear that the weight distribution would cause the shoulder strap to dig into my shoulder. In fact, this is typically a concern of mine when it comes to most messenger bags. However, this is on that I’d definitely like to give a shot. Buy through Nordstrom fro $228.
