Covet Me: Completely CovetableMonday, 06 September 2010 by Ashley Turowsky
I don’t usually believe in love at first site, but when it comes to my BE bags I know I can expect those butterflies in my stomach as soon as I open the box. This case was no different. My new autumn bag has arrived and it is fantastic. I knew I needed to have this bag as soon as I saw Jackie testing it out last January. And so I introduce my Grey Shimmer Covet Me…
The Covet Me is the perfect convertible bag- wear it messenger, or tighten the strap and wear over the shoulder. I love messenger bags and knew I had to add this style to my collection. I already have my Grey Matte WTM, but I thought this leather was different enough, although still grey which tends to match with everything. And I am not disappointed! The leather is even lovelier than the swatch and although soft I can tell it will be very durable.
The pull tassels are super strong and add just a bit of extra detail to the design. The inner zipper pocket holds all my valuables- wallet, sunglasses, notebook, and small umbrella (it was raining over the weekend!) The zipper closure is my favourite feature of this bag! I use the flap pocket for items I need accessible- keys, blackberry, Protect Me…Just lift the flap and all is revealed. The magnetic closure keeps the flap closed, so although no zipper, I know my items are secure and very easy to access.
Here we are getting ready to head out into the rain with my raincoat. No rain marks on the leather, which is a major bonus.
Although the bag may look like a flat messenger bag, it is not even close to being just that. Especially with the zipper sides, which allow you to expand the size of the bag. Plus there are large zipper pockets on the front and back of the bag.
I’m 5’7, so the bag fits to my body perfectly, but you can always tighten the strap to fit your height- another great feature of the bag. It’s super light and super stylish and I can’t wait to show it off!
