7 Chi has given us a purse that's right on trend, and on budget, with this Mally mini shoulder bag.
Rather than a traditional flap design, 7 Chi gives us pretty stitching and ruched details. It's a lot to take in, but in this gentle gray-black shade it never seems too much. A geometric patchwork design peeks out from under that flap. Patchwork is back this season, but not in the homespun crafty way we're used to seeing it. This more subtle interpretation, with complementary swatches of leather, is just what we're talking about.
While praising the bag, it's impossible to overlook those interchangeable straps which give the Mally more versatility than you'd expect. Switch out the straps to take the purse from a clutch to a shoulder bag and then a cross-body purse. Unlike so many convertible purses, the interchangeable handles make sure we have a clean look no matter what mode the bag is in. That's great, because with so much going on aesthetically the last thing we need is another distraction.
It is classed as a mini bag though, and while I don't think it's quite as small as its name suggests pack rats will find it lacking. For me the most disappointing part is that we can't really make use of all of the space on offer. If you overstuff the Mally, the flap doesn't quite reach its magnet. This magnet is also quite weak, so it's difficult to keep the bag closed up when it's over your shoulder. The main compartment does have a zippered closure so it shouldn't pose a security risk, but it just doesn't look quite as good open.
It has its flaws, but 7 Chi has done well here to offer us a stylish and authentic leather bag for just $99.
