Michael Kors Desert Satchel | Large Leather Designer Handbag with Buckles

Posted on: Jan 17

Buckles and drawstrings seem to be big with handbag designers in recent collections. When I first saw this Michael Kors Desert satchel, I immediately thought of the Elliot Lucca Estella bag. The shapes are somewhat similar, but the front details are almost identical.

However, the overall style of the two purses couldn't be more different. While the Estella is flashy with its metallic leather and bold hardware, the Desert bag is much more subtle. For everyday, I prefer the Michael Kors satchel with its casual, brown washed leather and tan stitching.

There's a time and place for shiny, silver purses, but the Desert is great for toning things down and blending into a wardrobe. You could pair it with nearly any informal outfit you've got, which makes it a wise investment. Versatility is definitely something to consider when making accessories purchases these days. Although the Elliot Lucca bag is over $100 less, the Desert satchel's price tag of $398 doesn't seem too bad when you think of how often you'll be able to use it.

The exterior flap pockets aren't just for looks, but the buckled details are. Their snap closures make them easier to access than real buckled pockets. The drawstring is functional, but really just adds to the style of the bag as the interior magnetic snap is much less cumbersome. Gold-toned hardware brings a hint of shine to this large Michael Kors handbag. If you're looking for something a little more funky, the Desert also comes in an embossed python tote.
