Baggin' Out: Aldo Machon

[Every girl needs a good purse (or 12). Whether you’re going for groceries or running from class to class, they are simply essential for holding all your, uh, essentials. Each week, I’m going to show you a fashionable, yet functional purse for the college crowd and let you know why you absolutely need it! I apologize ahead of time to your bank account.]
Since I paid my last MasterCard bill, I’ve decided that I need to buckle down and budget shop with a little more effort. I love my high-end purses, but surprisingly, many middle-end stores churn out wonderful bags at a fraction of the designer cost. One shop that I can always count on to keep on top of trends at an affordable price is Aldo. I was browsing their sale the other day (which is always full of great finds!) and stumbled upon the beautiful Machon.
Color-blocking is a huge trend for Summer and you can test out the waters with a safer combo of off-white and black synthetic with the Machon. The pattern on this purse is quite striking and reminds me, both in shape and design, of the Rebecca Minkoff Bombe M.A.B., but at a fraction of the price. It’s a medium-sized satchel, with one set of handles that rest comfortably on your arm or on your shoulder. The size will perfectly fit all your essentials, plus a notebook or a camera, making it a great everyday purse, whether you’re heading to class or out sightseeing. The slight sheen of the synthetic will also allow you to transition this purse both into fall and evening!

The zip-top opens to a camel fabric interior, a back zip pocket and front slip pockets. Aldo is known for designing super-functional purses and I wouldn’t expect anything less from the Machon! Also a functional feature, the easy-to-clean synthetic material. If you’re hesitant about purchasing a light-colored purse for fear of dirtying it, this would be a great tester!

Overall, the Aldo Machon will be the perfect, seasonless addition to your purse collection. The best part – it’s currently on sale for $29.98! Hop on over to Aldo if you’re interested.
