Jimmy Choo Isola Shopper

Giddy up, cowgirl. The Jimmy Choo Isola Shopper is ready for a rootin’ tootin’ good time. And I hope you don’t expect me to continue writing like that for the rest of the post, because I think it would make my head explode.

Fringe and studs are two things that you have to be very careful with, lest they turn a cute outfit into a complete costume. The folks at Jimmy Choo apparently chose not to heed such warnings, and this handbag suffers for it.

I really wish it was better, because I kind of like where they were headed with this style, but the first problem is the star studs. Studs can be studs and stars can be stars, but making them one and the same on a super expensive handbag does not exactly say “high end” to me. It says rodeo clown. When you combine that with a healthy doze of fringe and chunky leather stitching on the same bag, this particular piece becomes something that would probably only appeal to a very specific customer, and that customer is not me. Which is too bad, because the leather and the wrinkling detail on this bag are beautiful. It’s the rest of it that’s not. Buy through Nordstrom for $1495.

    Your critque of the bag is spot on. Too much stuff on what could have been a beautiful bag.

    Yea, theres way too much stuff. Is it just me or is the bag to low? I dont know, it looks like a photoshoped picture of a bag (you know like they do with model? The head of the model is too big for the body?) lol I hope you get what I mean! :)

    • Yeah, the proportion is a bit weird. The body of the bag should be taller, I agree. The bag seems like a total miss to me, which is too bad, since I think it could have been super cute.

    This bag is HORRIBLE. It reminds me of one of those Brighton bags. Ick, nast.

    It’s not bad, but for a shopper, it’s rather squat. For me, a shopper is a bag big enough that I can stuff in lots of small purchases. There’s not indication of the size on the Nordstrom website. Measurements are important for people looking at a bag!

    But I do agree. Studs or fringe or chunky stitching. Not all three in the same bag.
