My favorite messenger bag is the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Messenger bag. It’s dimensions of 10″x12″x3″ make it the perfect size to carry as an oversized clutch; yet large enough to hold an electronic device, cosmetics, wallet, notepad, etc.
Obsession of the week – 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Messenger Bag
Generally, I’m not crazy about messenger bags for their intended purpose. When you carry them as a cross-body bag, the strap creates all sorts of havoc on whatever you’re wearing on top. The strap often digs into your chest pulling on your shirt in the process, and the bag hits your hip consistently on one spot. I do, however, love messenger bags when I can throw them under my arm as an oversized clutch; or carry them by the handle like a purse or bookbag. As an advantage of technically being a messenger bag, you always have the strap for the short periods of time where you may really need to be hands free.
Bought the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Messenger bag in “Bright Fuschia” this past week. It is the perfect shade of pink (not too berry and not too neon). Looking forward to adding another bright pop of color to all the blacks and grays in my wardrobe this season!
As a slow adopter of the buying online trend, I have to admit that I’m quickly getting addicted to it. Clearly more convenient with free shipping and returns, but there is also something so exciting about getting a package in the mail. Kind of like getting a present…
Another pic of the bag to show how it expands…love it!
