Face-Off || Michael Kors Saddle Crossbody VS Rebecca Mink-off AVERY

Michael Kors Versus Rebecca Minkoff

Hello, hello! I know things have been rather slow here on the blog. Thanks to my old dying macbook, who’s screen was broken and I couldn’t see a thing. But we did manage to bring it back from the grave and it seems to be working just fine for now. 

Anyway, I’m thinking of starting a new series called “Face-off”. I know it does sound a bit intimidating and WWE sorts, even though I’m not a fanatic of mainstream physical bouts. But how many times do we find our selves standing in a shop comparing two products trying to escape from the eyes of a judgmental salesperson? Well to save you from the misery, here’s a new segment “Face-off” where the idea behind it is to compare two bags or any fashion or beauty bits around the same price point and somewhat of similar style, to see which ones actually worth stand up for.

And as you can tell by the title, I’m comparing two cross body bag which are definitely not similar in style. But were around the same price point between a hundred to one fifty dollar mark (well I got both of them on sale, so prices may vary now).

Michael Kors saddle Bag review

Michael Kors Saddle Crossbody bag : It’s in a beautiful classic Michael Kors brown shade that goes very well with the seasonal theme. But I do feel the color is a year round appropriate shade, and also would easily go with any outfit. It’s quite a durable soft leather which makes it an every day use and abuse bag. Throw in your essentials and off you go kinds, with two open pockets and a zipper compartment to keep things organized. Also what I absolutely admire about the bag is, that it has an easy access back pocket with a  magnetic clasp, which makes it a bit more secure at the same time.  I love its light weight and the fact that the leather doesn’t get stained by your jeans or dark colored clothes which is such a plus point when it comes to cross body bags. Those studs around the perimeter of the flap do add a lot of substance and style. Over-all I feel it’s an amazing bag for the price and I love everything about it.

Rebecca Minkoff Avery Bag review


Rebecca Minkoff Avery Cross Body Bag : It’s in a fresh airy mint color, which is perfect for spring/summer. The saffiano leather is beautiful and gives it a lot of structure. You can easily transition it from day to night time by simply taking off the straps and using it as a clutch, which makes it quite a versatile bag. I love the chain bit of strap which is well made and doesn’t go all that way, hence saving your hair from tugging and pulling (*hate it when that happens). The inside of the bag has a big zipper compartment which can help in keeping you organized. Also has eight card slots which is amazing in my opinion and saves you from that extra wallet weight. However, the biggest draw back of this bag is that the leather stains, it bloody stains. Even though the style of the leather is such that makes it easy to clean up but those stubborn jean stains are horrible and annoying. So for that reason alone I don’t get the moneys worth out of this bag. And I feel its best to get a darker color when going for this particular style of bag. 

Rebecca Minkoff Bag Review

+ Comes in a lot of beautiful shades.

+ Has enough compartments to keep your organized. 

+ Saffiano leather gives a lot of structure to the bag. 

+ Versatile, can be easily converted into a clutch. 


– Leather Stains (not cute).

– The accessible back pocket doesn’t come with a  magnetic clasp.


Overall, I feel the Michael Kors Saddle bag is your perfect everyday companion and if you love the look of Rebecca Minkoff bag then I feel going for a darker color in this style is more sensible. Since both are very well made and are of high quality.
