A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to try the Nica Ashley Satchel* which is a brand I have often admired in various department stores due to the intricate and beautiful designs of each bag. I find the brand to be incredibly feminine without being over the top, every design I have looked at has been unique and truly beautiful. The Nica Ashley Satchel* is available in three different colours, black, tan and salmon with my choice as shown above being black.
This bag can be used across the body or on the shoulder which is my preferred preference as it has adjustable straps allowing it to be set to your ideal length which is perfect for those like me who are pretty short. There is a floral embroidery pattern which flows across the bag adding just the right amount of detail. With this being black the floral detail isn’t as pronounced as it is upon the tan bag (go take a look) which in my opinion is a shame as on the tan one it really does stand out; I think it looks gorgeous!
The bag secures via a magnetic stud which is quite sturdy so I feel quite confident in knowing that my things are nice and safe within it. Under the flap of the bag there is a side pocket where bits and pieces can be stored if you want them separate from the main compartment of the bag. This isn’t a huge bag although I must admit it was bigger than I thought it would be once it arrived. I have to say I found myself pleasantly surprised as to how much room there is within the main body of the bag as you could easily get a few A5 notebooks within it along with your purse, keys, make up and that obligatory chocolate bar. There is a zip pocket within the main section which adds that extra bit of security such you need it for your phone or purse.
As you can see there is a cute addition to this bag with this being in the form of a flower charm, this is detachable if you so wish. I personally will be leaving it on the bag until the end of time as I think it looks very nice indeed. For me this is just what I would expect from a brand such as Nica as it’s the little additions such as these that really make me notice a brand. Complete with a gold bow on the front of the bag I think this really finishes off the presentation of the bag nicely, leaving you with a sophisticated satchel that can be used to soften up any outfit.
This bag at the moment is currently on offer for less than £35 with its full retail price being £49, snap it up whilst you can from Bagable.
