Thanks to Jessica from Hapa Time (my new favorite blog), I was able to score this new little structured bag from ROMWE that I absolutely adore. I usually shy away from sites like this - trying to mimic the latest fashions and sell them cheap. Usually you sacrifice quality in a big way. When I saw this bag on Jessica, I couldn't help but notice how well the stitching was in zoomed in pictures. I sent her an email to inquire about it and she replied with a lot of details and her personal opinion. With confirmation from her, I felt more confident to order it. The bag was shipped from Nanjing, China, so it took about 2 weeks from the time the order was placed till I got it in my hands. The total cost was $48 with a 20% off coupon and the shipping was free. I was hesitant to post about it before its arrival because there is always a chance that the bag doesn't meet my expectations. Now that I got the bag and used it for 4 days, I can say that I highly recommend it. The leather is very nice and not prone to scratches. The stitching is phenomenal. The size is great and gee I love the color. This is a fantastic substitute to a Celine box if you don't want to shell out $3000 for a purse. That being said, when I tried to find this purse on ROMWE I realized that the purse is sold out already. Sorry for being late on this post.

P.S. Aldo is having a big sale on flat sandals if you are looking for a pair. Orders over $75 get free shipping. I ordered 4 pairs to try on.
Have a great week!
Update on Aldo order -
- HARTSTEIN fits nicely, pretty color, cute bottom, but the big bow seems to be out of place.
- MARANVILLE is a bad choice for people who have higher than normal feet. I could barely put one of my feet into these shoes and the other one I couldn't even get in.
- CAVNESS is hands down my favorite, although it's the most expensive. HARTSTEIN and MARANVILLE both are synthetic material, but the CAVNESS is not only real leather on the upper but also on the inner sole. It's super soft and comfy. I wore it in the house for a few hours and was absolutely amazed. A definite keeper.
