Twisted Orchids Mad by Design Bags Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey guys! So my next review and giveaway is for Twisted Orchid's Mad By Design bags. As the website says: "Twisted Orchid is a premium shopping destination for stylishly chic purses & women’s handbags. From the pages of People StyleWatch to Lucky, Elle and Oprah, trendspotters & fashion provocateurs alike are buzzing about our incredible selection of totes, clutches, shell & horn handbags, wallets, animal friendly leather handbags and Eco friendly bamboo handbags & purses." I received the Caviar Gypsy purse.



This bag was super cool, I especially I love the sized of it and was kind of surprised by how large it was. On the website it looks a lot smaller. Yes it does say the sizes on it, but I don't measure or even think of measuring bags in the air with a ruler to see how big it will be I just look at it, like it, and pick it. That's how I roll. But it's great for traveling with, you can use it as your personal item on planes and put alllllll your stuff in it. Maybe not your laptop...but everything else!

I like the style of the bag except for 2 things: 1. The color is a kind of weird light copper/bronze that I'm not a big fan of, I originally asked for the Nomad Gypsy which is an almost black looking purse, but I guess they ran out or didn't have it available which I understand. It just looks a bit different from the site, the site makes it more silvery but in person it's bronzey. But I mean you guys might like it, I'm just more of a fan of darker purses for some reason. I don't really like light colors. 2. The other thing I didn't like was the weird metal thing on the edges of the top of the purse. Actually I take that back, it is not that I don't like, it's just I'm not sure how I feel about it. I think it looks cool but at the same time I think it's a bit much, I'm stuck in the middle with my opinion of it.

But other than that I did like the purse, like I said above, the size is awesome. I loveeee all the pockets. I'm a big fan of pockets. It has a tiny zipper in the back and that pocket in the front. It also had 2 big zipper sections which I love. It also has a few more pockets and zippers in the big zipper pockets. Even though I didn't like the color of the bag so much I did like the fact that it wasn't super shiny. This is animal friendly leather and sometimes with animal friendly leather the bag can be super shiny and cheapish looking but this had a nice look to it. It was metallicy but not shiny. It also felt nice too, again not a cheap feeling but very smooth and nice.

Overall I really did like the bag and like the fact that it's animal friendly leather and still looks stylish and not cheap. Definitely check out their website! They have everything from huge bags to small clutches to even purses that look like flowers! Cute!
