Felix the Cat purse Review & Giveaway!

When I first laid eyes on Bagblaze, those prices were indeed, hot. The name fits the site perfectly. You won't find any bags over $40. Some bags are worth over $100, and more than half the price off. The way this site works is every day at 10am (PST) blazing deals on purses are put up for only 72 hours. During that time, you can purchase one for a low price. The best part about this store is that they offer free shipping, which is always a nice incentive to shopping at any store.


When I approached Bag blaze for a review, the generous owner offered me a bag of my choice.  There was so much variety and unique choices. The color choices were plentiful, and the dimensions were laid out perfectly, so I knew exactly what I was getting. The pictures were bright and clear and you are able to zoom in close up. I had fun looking around. 

In the midst of perusing all the beautiful bags, this one stopped me dead in my tracks. For one, I love cats. I'm a crazy cat lady. Especially crazy for retro cats. Felix is an old, but timeless character from a cartoon in the 1920's. This particular bag is designed after Felix the Cat's little bag of tricks. Here's a fun little video to educate you. The Magic Bag 







The color scheme I chose was red & black. I thought the colors really complemented the design well. When the bag arrived, I was thrilled with what I saw. It looks much bigger in person and it has 3 very roomy compartments. It also has very durable and soft faux leather handles. I love this, because a lot of handbags have rigid straps and after long, they dig into your arm and shoulder. The straps are also not too short or long. Just perfect for throwing over your shoulder and carrying, without a fuss. Those of you that have bigger arms, you will love this. Over all, this bag is so cute and i'm really impressed with the quality. It is well worth the $34.95 retail value. and seems like it will last a long while.
