Kate Spade continues to wow me with her colorful, whimsical creations. Last week I was lusting after her cute Confectionary Anastasia clutch, and today I'm swooning over the Sorbonne Square Evangeline Shoulder Bag.
This shoulder bag features the same colors as the clutch, but they're rendered in a slightly more subtle way. Instead of large faceted gemstones we get colored satin ribbons crisscrossing this way and that against the black patent cowhide body. The ribbons create a cute checkered pattern across the purse's surface that I find so appealing. I love the way the colors pop against the bag's neutral base. I'm so smitten that I'm finding it hard to be objective.
It's easier to gain perspective when I look inside. Without the pretty colors to distract me I can admit the interior's only just so-so. It's big enough for holding essentials but not a great deal more. Its pair of pouches and the single zippered pocket also do the job without sending us into raptures.
But for an affordable $345, the Sorbonne Square Evangeline Shoulder Bag doesn't need to be amazing in all aspects. It just needs to tick all the boxes, which it definitely does. I swore I wouldn't spend any more money before Christmas, but hopefully I'll find this cutie underneath my tree!
