I was certain we covered the Derek Lam Nadia before. I checked PurseBlog and PurseBlog Savvy, no go. Instead, I must have been certain we covered it because I kept looking at this bag on ShopBop and other sites and thinking, “I should really write about this bag”. I need to teach myself that internal conversation blog posts are not being seen by our readers. Apologies.

But we have a treat for you. Sure, this bag comes in leather, which is what I saw on ShopBop, but we are bringing you a closer look at the spiced up version of the Derek Lam Nadia Hobo in dyed buffed python. We will be bringing you more on the next spring trend that continues surfacing, tye-dye effects, and Derek Lam perfects this with the exotic skin and sleek design. (more…)

Derek Lam Romina BagI’m kind of undecided here, PurseBloggers. So here are my thoughts, I need you to help me make a decision. The Derek Lam Romina Bag has some definite strong points. The leather is nice and smooth. It has a cool chain strap (I love chain straps) that most bags of this shape don’t have, and it also has a piece of leather attached to the chain to make it more comfortable to carry. I generally enjoy grey as a color for bags, because I think that grey goes with more other colors than either black or brown. The lining is pretty. Something about this bag, though, is making think “eh. pass.” I’m not sure exactly what it is…could it be the seaming?

The bag might be a little TOO pieced together for my taste, and I’m finding the lack of symmetry in the seaming a bit disconcerting. Is that a pocket over there on that one side? I’m not sure. It looks like one, but who knows. One side of the front is also pleated, while the other is not, and the overall effect is just not doing anything for me. I won’t go so far as to say that it’s an affront to my sense of balance…but it sort of is. And the leather, despite being smooth, doesn’t look like it would be particularly soft. Strike two. Does anyone have a strike three? Buy through ShopBop for $1690.
