The Foldover Bag

I am not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but I feel like foldover bags are about to have a major moment (hence why I included them here as one of the five bags to buy this spring). I just got my new Alexis foldover from Urban Expressions and I truly cannot say enough good things about this bag, from the impeccable construction, to the perfect placement and size of pockets, to the gorgeous color, this bag has it all. And the very best part is that Urban Expressions only creates bags made of vegan leather so they are totally animal-friendly! I have had one heck of a time trying to find any company that offers trendy, well constructed and animal friendly bags and so far Urban Expressions is the only one!

I decided to pair my new bag with a great warm jacket I have had for years, some kick-ass mom jeans and my husband’s polka dot button down. I think the whole look comes off as a boy-girl tension, nerdy tomboy kind of vibe.

The best part about all of this is that I have an exclusive coupon code from Urban Expressions that is good for 25% off of the ENTIRE SITE! All you need to do is offer coupon code: UE25BNJGB at checkout! Happy shopping!

    I've just been on the Urban Expression website and they have some truly amazing products. The designs are really wonderful and the quality looks top notch. I always loved bags with unique colors and designs, but it;s always been a bit of a struggle to find one with my sense of style and taste. They seem to have a number of bags that I would love for myself though!

    This bag is so practical; I can't believe I haven't heard about bags like that before! I also love the colour. I must admit I mostly buy genuine leather, because I find it more durable (but my experiences are based mostly on buying high street bags.) I'd love to give vegan leather a try, though; I just want to make sure that the bag will last more than one season. Can you tell anything about the quality of this bag? Thank you 🙂

    Hey Joanna! Of course! I totally get where you are coming from because I used to buy only true leather too and was totally shocked by some of the higher quality vegan leathers out there! This bag has a flat “leather” (not pebbled) and so far it hasn't gotten a scratch on it, which I unfortunately cannot say for my Kate Spade, which is true leather. The stitching is small and very strong and I have had zero issues using any of the zippers. I think my favorite part was how appeared when it was shipped. The entire bag came so secured (paper around all the metal parts so they didn't scratch each other) and it was completely stuffed to keep its shape! Hope this helps and please let me know if you have anymore questions!
