Then I earned my free kits and purchased some of the products at the consultant sale (PERK!). After using them for a few days, I fell in love with the line. There are a few bags I have some gripes with. But overall, the Jewell line is actually a pretty fantastic one. The bags themselves are not HEAVY like most purses can be. They have lots of pockets (my favorite thing about Thirty One bags), and they make bags in different sizes and colors. .
My favorite I've seen so far? The mini Diamond district. I earned mine for free with the help of my team (PERK!). Yep, I didn't pay a nickle for it! This bag can hold a LOT without turning into a bulky mess. It has two outer pockets. One slip pocket where I keep my iphone. The other fold over flap pocket with magnetic closures. The interior comes with two open pockets that can hold your phone, a calculator, a packet of kleenex and lip gloss, and a pen. (to give you an idea of whats in my bag). I carry two kindles, my all about the benjamins wallet, a small notebook, another flat wallet, my hardsided eye glass case, a small tube of lotion, and a few other small things. Yes, this petite bag looks deceiving. Even I was shocked.
The handles are very sturdy and the perfect size to carry on your arm without getting in the way when you use the shoulder strap (included). This is currently my daily bag.
When I first saw this on the video I turned my nose up at it. I saw this last night and felt bad for being so negative about it before I gave it a chance. I'll be ordering TWO of these for our trip to Europe. Although I have MANY cross body purses in my arsenal, none of them have the look of this jewell purse. It just looks and feels like an expensive purse without breaking the bank.
There are two large compartments which zip completely shut. In between those two compartments is a pocket that has a magnetic closure. On the opposite side of the bag is a handle. You can carry this as a clutch without the straps or use that to hang on tighter to your purse as you wear it when traveling (which is why I'm ordering these for our trip). Inside there is one interior zipper pocket and two credit card slots for your bare essentials.
The bag and strap is lightweight. For full figured women like me, crossbody bags are not something we run to because it's not the most flattering (on my body anyway). This bag hangs nicely and is not too bulky yet big enough to carry everything you need when on the go.
When I got this in my consultant add on kit, I absolutely loved this bag. I still do. With the Mini Diamond District bag now in my clutches, this bag is now in storage, for now. This is a super cute bag that also can hold your bare necessities. It's tall and narrow with one magnetic closure at the top. Because this bag does not zip all the way shut, you can load this one up with extras if you needed. The handles are very strong and this bag does come with a shoulder strap also. I prefer to carry this by the handles. It looks cuter that way.
I loaded this bag up and it held up well. My only gripe is if this bag decides to take a fall in your moving vehicle, the contents of your bag WILL spill out all over the floor of your car.
It comes with open pockets inside and all Jewell bags have button snaps where you can customize EVERY bag and interchange pockets. That's pretty cool!
