Parinda Sweet Pea Handbag Review

A few days ago I was given the unique opportunity to review Parinda's Sweet Pea handbag in Pecan for CSN and I gotta be honest with you...I wasn't entirely sure how I was going to like it because one thing I am, is extremely picky when it comes to handbags. BUT I'm so happy to report that I love it! It really surpassed all my expectations and here's why...

First of all, the bag is bigger than what I expected, which was great because I either like a big handbag or a small clutch, not a small or medium bag. The second thing I noticed was how incredibly soft it is! I never expected it too feel so luxurious (which was a nice surprise and something you can't tell from looking at a picture). The Sweet Pea is made out of faux leather but it really feels like butter ladies, you won't be able to tell the difference, I promise.

It includes some nice details like polished silver hardware, fabric lined interior, a back zipper pocket, slip pockets for your cellphone, MP3 player etc, a zipper enclosure and ornamental turning lock to open and close the purse.

The Sweet Pea comes in 4 colors. Black, Red, Mocca, and Pecan. The Pecan color is fabulous! I chose this color because it makes the bag easy to transition from seasons. You can pair it with light pastel colored clothes for the summer and coordinate it with a solid black outfit for the fall.

The only critiques I have is that the turning lock and zipper makes it little difficult to quickly get into your purse. If you're like me and are looking constantly for something in your purse it can be a little frustrating. I found that either leaving the zipper open or not buckling in the lock works better than doing both. (It also has a back pocket which can be useful if you need something handy). Another thing is that I did find some loose threads sticking out of the purse but after a few snips from my scissors, I solved that.

Overall I really liked the purse. I liked the look of it, I liked the feel of it, and I think it's a good find to add to your collection for an affordable price.

Overall Rating: 4.3 out of 5
Price: 40.00 (Sale Price: $31.00)
