I'm all for quilted handbags, but ones that look like down comforters or puffy vests make me hesitate a little. That's why I'm undecided on this Kate Spade Coney Island Stevie satchel.
On one hand, I like the idea of a practical nylon handbag that's given a quilted design to set it apart from just any run-of-the-mill nylon tote. You can't say Kate Spade isn't at least somewhat original. On the other hand, this large quilting with button detail looks more like something I'd wear to go skiing ... or maybe just a blanket to cuddle up under on a cold day. Though I'm sure it's not the intended response, I can't help but think "snow bunny" when I see version of the Stevie.
It's not the actual bag style that bothers me, however. The Stevie satchel is a popular choice from Kate Spade and one that comes in a variety of textures and fabrics. The Classic Noel Stevie is a perfect example of how different the silhouette can look with a different façade.
Of course, snow bunny fashion just might be your ideal look. If so, this Coney Island Stevie's puffy, cozy exterior combined with its roomy interior is right up your alley. In addition to this Kate Spade kelly green, this satchel also comes in red, black, and a berry fuchsia color and retails for $295.
