It is hard to tell but there is a middle section that is zippered up and then a huge space on either side of the zippered middle. Then you have another hidden little zippered part in one of those side spaces while the opposite side space has some little open compartments that could hold a cell phone, address book, something small along those lines. Then on the front of the bag is another zippered area to stick something that maybe you use alot and want it to be accessible really quick and easy like a compact and your favorite lipstick.
The Victoria handbag is so soft to the touch and smells just like a new car smell, you know, like real leather! I feel very lucky and giddy right about now with this fabulous handbag to show off the next time I go out. This is my first Paulina Carcach bag and I hope it won't be my last!
This is what they say on their site about the Victoria bag's details:
Polished plated gold hardware and contour stitching details, highlight the beauty of the bag. Handcrafted from beautiful superior quality ivory calfskin leather. This bag can be used as satchel, shoulder or messenger bag. One long adjustable strap that detaches if desired. The bag is fully lined with contrast eggplant satin fabric. One exterior zip pocket at the back. The interior features two open pockets for cellphones, keys, etc. and one zip pocket on the opposite wall. One interior zip compartment/divider. Top zip closure. Very roomy and perfect for an every day life.
What a cool idea! You can make it all yours and it will be unique and totally you! Take for example my bag above, you can use different kinds of leather, change the color of the fabric on the inside and take the logo off if you don't like it on the outside. Most of these bags run anywhere from $152 to $232.
There is a video you can watch that will show you how your bag was made. I tried to grab it but it is not on YouTube so I could not access it but if you follow this word video, you can still watch it on their site. To see the colors of leather for the handbags it is a little hard on those small swatches so if you go to their Samples page you will see much larger images of the colors and grains of the leather so you can decide much better which one suits you.
