Below is a transcript of the video.
We’re doing a review of the Ted Baker of London Cat Leather Crossbody bag. This comes in three different colors: beige, black and baby pink. Pink now is the new neutral, especially if you are wearing all black to some kind of an elegant dinner. I think the pink is a nice pop of neutral color that kind of goes with everything.
So this little cutie called to me because number one its color but also its cat face. So it has a center seam with whiskers and a button nose with the Ted Baker logo on it. The hardware on this is rose gold. Its dimensions are: eight (8) inches wide seven (7) inches high and a one and a three quarter (1.75) inch deep and the strap drop length is 22 inches. The straps are removable but I can’t imagine holding it as as a clutch really since it would be really uncomfortable.
The cover flap has a magnetic closure. The bag is made from cow leather with a cotton lined interior. It’s just an open bucket bag with an opening and an interior zip pocket. The inside pocket has as a design on it and this one happens to have an animal design on it. It is a zippered pocket with a zipper pull that is also rose gold. There is the Ted Baker logo on the inside pocket also.
The interior of the bag is lined with a light colored cotton canvas. I can see with use, you could probably get it dirty in more handled areas, however since it’s in the inside I don’t know how much that matters to you guys. The back of the bag is pretty plain so it is directional – you can’t like swing it over and wear it whichever way.
The cover flap has an interesting structural design because the center is sewn together at an angle so it has a slight “v” to it. So when you open the bag, the flap doesn’t open all the way up. I don’t think that too big deal.
The straps are chain as well as leather. It has the comfort band area so the strap doesn’t dig into your shoulder when you’re carrying it. I like this feature because sometimes depending on the chain the straps can dig into your shoulders and having something like this kind of smooths it out and it’s not as uncomfortable. The bag is pretty structured and sturdy and it’s hard so it holds its shape.
For storage I would recommend stuffing it so it doesn’t collapse or get wrinkled. Otherwise, I think it’s a great addition to your handbag collection for your closet.
