Joseph and Stacey OZ White Mini Bag

There was more than one occasion that I wished I had a white handbag to go with a specific outfit. A white handbag is something I was contemplating getting but wasn't sure how much wear I'd get out of it. One thing I am certain of is that I wouldn't spend a huge amount of money on a white handbag. I am thrilled to welcome this latest addition to my handbag collection from Joseph & Stacey. It's gorgeous, ticks all the boxes and the price is reasonable for a full leather bag.

If you're not familiar with Joseph and Stacey, it's a Korean brand specializing in luxury leather bags since 2009. Their handbags have been worn by many Korean celebrities. I love their modern designs. I had a hard time deciding but ultimately, went with the OZ mini in white (as seen in Korean Drama Wok of Love). The leather feels so soft and luxurious. Can we also acknowledge how adorable is their logo? If you recall, I wrote a post stating why I will not purchase the Gucci Soho Disco bag here. There are 2 reasons: #1 - the shoulder strap is not adjustable (being only 5'2", it's a real problem) and # 2 - I really dislike the huge tassel. The OZ mini solved both issues. The design is identical to the Gucci Soho. However, the functionalities work way better for me. As mentioned earlier, the strap is adjustable. You can adjust the shoulder strap accordingly to your height and/or your liking. The design is minimal without bells and whistles. The bag has silver-tone hardware which I prefer. Last but not least, it has the back pocket for your phone (which is a life saver).

This bag comes with 2 straps (a full leather strap and a canvas strap). How cool, right?. The canvas strap gives the bag a whole different vibe. This bag is big enough for my compact wallet, keys, sunglasses, a couple of lipsticks and my phone (on the back pocket) with room to spare. This little beauty is also perfect for travelling. Switch the leather strap with the canvas strap for added comfort. For day, it's a great little crossbody bag. At night, simply remove the strap and it turns into an elegant clutch. You can also turn this bag into a cosmetic bag which can fit conveniently into larger travel bags. I have to say this bag is smartly designed to be 100% functional. If white isn't your choice of color, the OZ mini comes in 6 different colors (blue, white, green, orange, ivory and black). The package arrived at my doorstep about a week.
