Nothing can change the look or feel of an outfit like a great handbag. Whether you fit into your skinny jeans (or not) or can afford the latest trends (or not), if you’re carrying a stylish and good looking purse, you can immediately feel put together and fashionable. Namaste Handbags are perfect for adding some pop to your daily grind. With bold colors, in funky and classic lines, Namaste handbags and totes won’t break the bank.
Organize in style with the Monroe bag, featuring a unique 3-compartment storage design fully equipped with extra pockets and strong magnetized closures. This bag features a rear document pocket that’s excellent for toting your magazine or other important documents unharmed. Optional strap buddy to keep straps together so slippage off the shoulder isn’t an issue. You’re gonna love this bag!
The Monroe bag comes in six colors ranging from black to hot pink. I opted for the Peacock – a beautiful greenish blue color. I wanted something bright and colorful to add a little fun to the classic lines of the bag.
With its three separate compartments, the Monroe is perfect for mamas who want to organize all that stuff you can’t seem to leave the house without. I use one compartment for kid stuff like diapers and sippy cups, another for my stuff and the center area for stuff I want easy quick access to. The bag measures 5 inches wide, 11 inches tall, and 16 inches wide but is deceptively big on the inside. Seriously, even a pack rat will be able to tote all you need in this bag. I think it’s a good option for working mamas, too, since there’s so much organization and space inside the bag. It would even hold a mini laptop without problem.
I really like that I can carry a purse that holds everything I need for my kids without skimping on style. The clean lines of the Monroe bag are classic and the color is bright and bold. It’s really a fun bag to carry.
Bags & Accessories
Namaste bags are a great balance of style and necessary function. In addition to handbags, Namaste offers great accessories for inside your bag like a wallet, buddy case and mini clutch.
To Buy or Not to Buy
To Buy… The Monroe bag seems and feels like it costs well above the $85 price tag. The construction is top notch, the bag is stylish and with oodles of storage and room, it’s big enough for mamas lugging kid and baby gear. At the same time, because of the streamlined and modern look you don’t feel like you’re dragging around a giant bag.
Or Not to Buy… My only improvement to Namaste bags would be to add more handbags to the collection. Right now there are only 4 to pick from.
