So as some of you may know this past weekend I went on a Bachelorette Party to Denver, CO. Now I’m not normally a big bag person, I usually swing for the smaller “sling” style bags because I like to be hands free. However though, as many of you may know I am 28 weeks pregnant so I figured it was not only time for a new purse because mine was falling apart but because I needed to get used to carrying something bigger around with baby boy on his way since a diaper bag isn’t exactly small. Now I’m not normally one to splurge on a bag, and to be honest I have had my eyes on this bag but I wanted to get a feel for a bigger bag first before splurging. If I do decide to go with the LV I will definitely write a review though since I plan on using it more as a baby bag rather than an actual purse. Back to this bag though, I must say I was VERY satisfied with my purchase! The Mercer Tote is large and can carry many items comfortably as it does come with a shoulder strap so I get the best of both worlds, hands free and more storage. I really wanted to put my new purse to the test this past weekend and see just how much I could carry around comfortably while we did “Bachelorette” things. I will mention this bag does not have many pockets so if you are a someone who likes lots of “storage” in their purse this may not be the one for you but, storage is not a big deal for me. I was able to fit my planner comfortably at the bottom, along with my travel makeup bag, large wallet, mini Amazing Grace perfume, iPhone charger, prenatal vitamins, and Quay Australia Sunglasses with plenty of room left to add anything else I could have wanted to. While I do understand this purchase would be a splurge for some I would highly recommend this bag, easy 9/10. I would give it a 10/10 if it had more pockets but I know while its not important for me it may be for some. The leather and handles are well made and sturdy, and it holds its shape well. If you would like a more in depth blog about everything I keep in my bag (wether it is to see the size of the items I fit in there or curious to see what I like to keep in my bag) please comment down below.
