If you’re like me, you’re always on the item hunt for a versatile handbag. You see, as someone who is constantly on the go, I need purses that can travel the distance alongside me. From work to weekend, a great bag makes everything so much more seamless. Enter the kate spade new york Make it Mine bags. These iconic purses come with interchangeable flaps to personalize the style to your outfit or mood. Genius, right?!

Why I Need This Bag

Often, I have to go on a business trip for a night or two, and need to fit everything in a small carry-on bag. After all, who wants to stand by a luggage carousel waiting for a checked bag for 45 minutes? Therefore, I don’t often have the luxury to pack extra handbags or other accessories. Plus, I need to reserve the space for toiletries, cosmetics, and clothes. When kate spade new york introduced a line of bags that can transform the design in mere seconds, I was all ears! Recently, the brand sent me the classic “Byrdie” style along with a few interchangeable flaps.

As a gal who loves bows, polka dots, florals, and stripes, the Make It Mine bag gives me to chance to enjoy every option in a single bag. After all, can’t you see Audrey Hepburn sporting stripes by day and then a chic bow detail for evening? Best of all, the interchangeable flap is easy to change out. All you have to do is unsnap two points of the flap, add in a new version, and you’re done! Plus, the snaps are hidden in the back pocket and perfectly fitted to the the bag. You can’t even tell it’s a separate piece. Although it was hard to pick a favorite, mine is the stripes. In my opinion, the pattern add a touch of elegance to any outfit.

The Basics of the Byrdie Bag

Alright, so the Byrdie bag has interchangeable straps: a shorter handheld length and a classic shoulder length. Furthermore, both straps can be affixed to the bag at the same time, so if you’d rather not leave one behind, you won’t need to. In addition to the “Byrdie,” the Make It Mine collection also includes three other styles. There’s the “Maddie” (a convertible backpack), the “Camila” (an all-in-one clutch and crossbody), and the “Candace” (a classic tote). Even better, the Birdie, Maddie, and Camila are designed to use the same interchangeable flaps. Genius!
