Well, there is something I like about this bag yet I can’t quite put my finger on it. I do like the tan leather color and the gold hardware. So, that’s a start. The West/Feren McCoy Bag is a versatile bag that can be carried by someone young or someone a bit older. Yes, I think that is what has pulled me in with this bag, the versatility. (more…)
While I am, at heart, a girl who prefers bags with long or shoulder straps, sometimes I’m in the mood to carry something with a shorter, firmer strap. This West/Feren Joplin Leather Satchel is just the ticket; it can be carried in the crook of the elbow, but it’s not too boxy as to make it sag in the middle when it’s full. Rather, it has the shape of a 3D rectangle, which is quite unique. Cube shaped bags, while they are cute, lose their shape so easily and then just look sloppy. That’s not the case here. (more…)
The West/Feren Birkshire Handbag makes me think of a very specific kind of girl. She’s taller than average, but not freakishly tall; thinner than average, but not freakishly thin. Her hair is somewhere between blond and brown, and it looks natural but it’s actually carefully planned and always wavy, like she’s just come from the beach, although there is no beach to speak of. The things that she wears look vintage and you have no idea where she got them, but they’re not vintage. They’re really expensive, and they’re from boutiques that you don’t know about yet. By the time you do, she probably won’t shop there anymore.
Yes, this bag is a match made in heaven for THAT girl. It looks like a well-worn vintage piece but it’s actually brand new and intended for just that purpose. Which is not to say I don’t like it – I do. And the girl that will love it is incredibly stylish and someone a lot of us probably envy. On a lot of people, though, it might look too worn or old, or maybe like the wearer was trying a bit too hard. Buy through Shop Bop for $175.
