This week, I’ve been scouting purses for a gift to myself. I’ve worked hard this semester and want a retail treat! Dorothy Perkins is a hip “high street” shop from the UK that always has eye-catching pieces. This color block purse reminds me of the Coach Kristen line, but at a fraction of the price!
This purse is made from faux leather in contrasting shades of cream, black and grey. The color blocking using neutral shades is subtle, but still fashionable. It’s a great way for girls who are hesitant about color blocking to test out the trend and not worry about going overboard.
This bag is 12.6′ L x 14.5′ H and large enough for an everyday tote. It’s open on the top, so you can fit oversize items like a laptop or textbook in it. The chain-strap handle is a nice detail, although it does add some weight to the purse. The front flap pocket is perfect for storing your cell phone. The tassel detail is probably my favorite thing about this purse; it’s so cute and ladylike!
If you’re looking for a great on-the-go purse that’s also fashion-forward, check out the Dorothy Perkins Color Block Bag for about $70.
