PRODUCT REVIEW: Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Top-Zip Tote

As you may have noticed from past post I'm a big fan of Michael Kors, I own jewellery, watches, bags and purses designed by the talented designer. Not only are MK merchandise fashionable and good quality, they're affordable! I'd been wanting red casual bag for a while but hadn't spotted anything online or on the high-street. So as you can guess I was delighted when I was gifted this Claret coloured Jet Set Saffiano Leather Top-Zip Tote for my birthday.

I thought I'd leave it a couple of weeks, get a bit of use out of my new bag before writing a review about it, to tell you just how much I love it and lists all the reasons why you need to get it. So here goes...

The bag boasts an ideal size for everyday use. It can be worn casually or formally. So far I've worn it mainly to the office. Though not as structured as the Selma, it is just as practical and attractive.

Width 16.5" Height 10" Depth 5.5"

The bag is made of Saffiano Leather, grained leather that has been tanned. The rough cross hatch leather makes it fairly resistant to scratches and keeps it looking new for long. I've also realised that this type of leather copes better with the elements that other types of leather, especially in wet conditions.

One of the things I really liked about this bag is that it has a zip. MK also has another bag exactly the same but without a zip - a deal breaker for someone as it's not secure. This bag is much more secure than it's sister bag and a tad more stylish.

As with most MK bags, you can get the bag with gold or silver hardwear and logo. Of course gold is my colour and I think it looks stunning against the richness of the claret tone. The bag features several bits of hardwear; one logo charm, the brand name and the buckles to hold the two 8 inch drop thin straps.

The interior of the bag is lined with MK monogram material, for the claret coloured bag this is sort of creamy champagne colour. It also features a zipped pocket and four open pockets, suitable for mobile phones and other small items. The helpful key fob ensures you never have to struggle to find your keys amongst the masses in your bag.

The bag comes in a variety of colours; Claret, Cream, Tan, Navy, Nickel, Pale Gold and Pale Grey. Unfortunately, for those in the United Kingdom not all colours are available in store. However, along with those in the United States, you can order the bag in whatever colour you fancy from the Macys website (here).
