Pashli White Out

The weather has finally gotten to the point of not being completely horrid and the thought of showing minimal skin and leaving the house sans rain boots isn't so outlandish. It's no LA, though...which is where I was last week and where I wore this 50 shades of white outfit.

I figure I should do a little bit of a review of my Pashli beauty. So here we go!

Pros: All in all, I love this purse. It's perfect for everyday and fits my laptop easily. The material is really durable and it seems like the purse can withstand a lot of wear. I'm absolutely in love with the design and the expandable sides are perfect for traveling (since I always overpack). The collapsable straps make it easy to get into and move out of the way for comfort if using the detachable cross body strap. The straps are also long enough for me to wear the bag on my shoulders.

Cons: The cross body strap is much too long for my frame (I'm 5'4) and the purse hangs too low for comfort. Also, the strap only attaches to metal loops on the back, which results in the bag leaning forward when worn on the shoulder or as a cross body. The metal buckle is slightly difficult to clip sometimes. I guess that isn't really fair, the buckle just doesn't snap super easy. Not really a big deal. Lastly, there is only one zippered pocked in the interior. Like I've said before, I'm a sucker for multiple pockets and this purse definitely doesn't deliver in that respect. I end up having to put my things into smaller pouches for organization.

Purse: 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel (similar)
Blazer: Elizabeth & James (old)
Cami: Zara (last season)
Jeans: F21 (old) (similar)
Sunnies: Wildfox
Pumps: Zara

But like I said, all in all I really love this bag and I definitely recommend it. The problems I have with them are only slight and none are deal breakers. The quality and design much outshine those "flaws." This purse has really just made me yearn for the mini version.
