Way back when, I had a purse by The Sak. It was back when I was but a wee child and they made only the woven bags that made them famous, and I thought it was the most luxurious thing in the world. I eventually added a smaller, black version to my collection and thought of it as somewhat of an evening bag, even though a child of my age really had nowhere to carry such things.

The Sak Convertible Satchel

I have since moved on with my handbag life, and it appears as though The Sak has done the same with it’s Convertible Satchel. Given the extremely reasonable price point, this bag is particularly well-tailored and sophisticated looking; it has a bit of slouch to it for a satchel, but not too much by any stretch of the imagination. It also neatly combines its second handle option by tucking the shoulder strap under the bag, hiding it until it’s necessary and then using the extra material at the ends to turn it into something of a proper-looking hobo. Look how far they’ve come. Buy through Nordstrom for $199.

    I have this bag! Have owned it for nearly a year and I still love it as much today as I did when I first bought it directly from The Sak. The PEACE lining in mine is the best part.

    I have mine in white crinkle patent and I love it. The stitching is starting to fray, and I got a bit of jean color transfer, but it holds a ton and it’s lightweight. I feel like purseblog even posted this before because Miley carried the amber version of it for all of one day.

    I used to think those woven bags were fancy and fabulous, too. This bag is better.
