A "STUDDED" ALEXANDER WANG REVEAL!


The Hubs surprised me with a "Fur" Mother's Day present because I'm a fur mommy to our two fur monsters!

NO rumors OK?! 

I'm not pregnant or anything!!! 

Felt the need to clarify because I can't tell you HOW often I've been asked if I'm with child lately.. yessh.. I must really really REALLY need to go on a diet. 

bahahahahaha!


The Hubs send me this card.. and truer words could not have been spoken

BAHAHAHAHAHA

JKJKJK. sorta. muhahaha.


He signed it w/ a tiny drawling of our "fur son" who is in Germany w/ the Hubs..

::cries::

Anyways ON TO THE REVEAL! :)

Does it get any better than getting package and seeing  "BERGDORF GOODMAN" sprawled across the box? 

I think not muhahahah :p


I've actually been DROOLING over what's in the box for MONTHS.. but I resisted pulling the trigger because I was/am on an indefinite self imposed bag ban. UGH!

                                                                           OPPS! 

hehehe now you know it's a bag and not shoes... Surprised??? :p 

tehehehe!

Anyhow long story short.. this has been on my "want" list for a number of months already and the Hubs graciously surprised me with it.

Thanks so much booboo!  Heart you!

BTW's Can you believe it's not a Chanel bag HAHAHA


Photo bombed by my fur daughter Jojo!



The dustbag is very a very simple white bag w/ a black leather patch displaying the brands name.


A peek!!


Alexander Wang Rockie in Acid w/ shiny gold hardware!!!


A lot of you maybe familiar with the ever popular Alexander Wang Rocco which has been out for a few years already.

I have always loved the Rocco but whenever I tried it on I always felt like it was just a tad too big and "baggy" for my tastes since I was so used to carrying very structured Chanel flaps.


Well apparently I wasn't the only one that felt this way because they recently birthed the "Rockie" for those of us that loved the Rocco but just wanted it in a smaller version :)


The bag measures 8" x 10" x 7" and weighs just under 3lbs. 

I was really concerned about the weight because of the studs on the bottom of the bag.. and while I haven't used "her" yet but I actually find it to be lighter then my Chanel jumbos!

Whenever I'm out with my mom and I have my hands full or something she offers to hold my Chanel bag she never fails to mention how heavy my jumbos are heh.....

So excited because I've been wanting a more "throw around" bag for awhile.. I use my Chanel jumbo's on the daily but I often find them to be difficult to use because of how structured they are... they are really limiting in what can be carried in them.

Whereas the Rockie is a lot softer and smooshy and the bag can expand a bit to fit all your odds and ends :)


On this side of the bag if you see the middle part sticks out a little bit and that is because.....


It has two secret zippered compartments which you can store things like a card holder, cash, train tickets ect!

I tested using the bag around the house and the one particular design detail that I absolutely adore with  is the bowling bag style zipper - it is preciously why I find this bag SOOOO darn cute.  However it is admittedly a bit difficult to open if you're standing up like at a cash register waiting to pay or something.  So you can just stash some of your cards and cash in the side zippered pockets.


The bag handle drop measures 4" and the remove able "crossbody" strap measures 19"

I put the word "crossbody" in quotes because while it may be crossbody for some people it doesn't really wear crossbody comfortably on me and I'm not even that tall HAHA. I'm 5'5 and it rests a little bit past my waistline.. so it's at a really awkward height.  But if you're carrying groceries in.. have your hands full ect. then it can definitely be "crossbody" in a pinch.


I also wanted to mention the Rockie in Acid comes in TWO different versions. 

The version I have is a smooth leather w/ gold hardware and studs and is a few inches smaller in size then the other version.  Also the color is more of a muted lime green.

Whereas the other version of the Rockie in Acid is actually a much brighter neon yellow and is made out of pebbled leather, has nickel colored hardware and studs, is a few inches bigger then my version and is slighter more expensive.  You can view my version here and the other version here.

I also found this comparison photo online of them side by side which you can view here.



I wanted to explain that there are two versions to this bag because funny enough I didn't realize there were two versions and for months I would randomly go into Neimans/Saks/Nordie's to go look at the bag and they NEVER had both versions so whenever I would see the smooth muted lime green versions w/ shiny gold studs I was literally salivating.. and then I would go some where else and I would see the pebbled neon yellow version w/ dark nickel hardware and couldn't figure out why I didn't LOVE it as much as I did the LAST time I saw it.

BAHAHAHAHAHA. 

And then after doing a bunch of research online I finally realized there were TWO VERSIONS. 

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG.

So shiny!!!!

  29. OMG Lisa, this bag is SOOOO cute and I love the neon and the studs on the bottom. It's so true how bags can get so heavy and it's even worse traveling. So cute he sent this to you also and the term 'Fur' Mother's Day is so clever. I'd never heard of it, he definitely has treated you so well since the day he met you :)
