Paulina Carcach Handbag Review & Giveaway ** Closed**


 
Oh, I am so excited to tell you about my new handbag called Victoria from Paulina Carcach! This bag is really the perfect size because I have alot of stuff I carry around especially on the days I have to go to the doctors and they want me to bring all my medicines with me. I hate to carry a separate bag with just those because you look like a drugstore! Look at how much space is in there:


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.
 
Now, Paulina Carcach has launched a new line of bags called Design Your Own and you can change the hardware to either silver or gold, change the where the logo goes, change the color of the inside and outside and also accent the bag depending on which style you chose, for instance, you might have a stripe running across the bag or up and down, etc.

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.

There are also quite a few of Paulina Carcach bags on Sale right now if you would like to take advantage and get a really good bag for a great price! Oh, and they have a 100% Money Back Guarantee within 21 days of receipt if you do not like your bag for any reason. If the bag has faulty equipment within 365 days they will replace it or if you receive it damaged.

You will have an array of styles to choose from such as totes, satchels, cross body, clutches and shoulder bags. They also have wallets and accessories to choose from also. The accessories are leather belts, earrings and wristlets in various colors and styles. I never would have imagined wearing leather earrings but if you are a leather lover kinda gal, then you have come to the right place!

Here is a snippet of what I found under About Us:
Owner Paulina Carcach was born and raised in Guanajuato, Mexico. The second child of three siblings, she showed her love for leather and fashion at an early age. Paulina grew up watching her grandfather and father make cowboy boots by hand; she was always around leather and shoes. Paulina knows how leather is treated and it's characteristics. "I love leather because of it's look and feel, itʼs often used for quality items, such as shoes and accessories". "I think once you know how to treat and work with leather, you can work with any other medium".

Prior to working in the fashion world, Paulina worked as an Interior Designer at a San Francisco Design Firm, after graduating from the Interior Architecture and Design program at the Accademy of Art. “Interior Design is another passion of mine, I will some day have a Home Collection”. Paulina loves to design, whether is handbags, shoes, interiors or anything in between.
