My husband came home with an early Christmas present - a Kathy Van Zeeland Basic Instinct Belted Shopper in Deep Gold. To say this is an awesome bag would be an understatement.
Where should I begin! The Deep Gold color is actually two-toned. The main color of the bag is more of a beige shimmer, not gold and made of PVC. The other color is a sandy brown shimmer which provides accent to the bag in a crocodile skin textured design which appears on the handles, belt, corners and bottom of the bag.
The bag has two-handles each handle in accented with 2 'crowned-flying heart' studs, 4 gold rings (2 on each side of the handle) separated by a plain gold stud between the rings. The belt along the front of the bag has a Kathy Van Zeeland 'crowned flying-heart' belt buckle with white rhinestones around the perimeter to a maximum bling-age. Three plain gold studs appear on the belt on each side of the belt buckle. The corners are also accented with 3 gold studs on the front and back of the bag. A Kathy Van Zeeland gold charm keychain hangs from the left side of the front handle. The back of the bag also features and zippered pocket with a heart charm zipper closure.
Inside the bag is beautiful! It is lined with a pinkish-light purple satin material with handbag motifs. There is another zippered pocket, 2 additional pockets and a cell phone pouch. The gathered magnetic clasp closure truly makes this bag look stunning!
I have already started to use this bag and truly find it comfortable to wear on the shoulder or carry by hand. Not to mention that this bag holds everything - including the kitchen sink! Buy this shopper if you want a large beautiful bag that's good quality and but for only a fraction of the cost of a pricier handbag.
