So, with all that said...what did I think of the 'Trapani' bag that was delivered yesterday? Well, I can't deny that the bright pink interior of the box very much appealed to me (simple things...).
Shoedazzle also sent a free mock-croc effect bag for all your bits and bobs that often get lost in the bottom of your bigger bags.
I must say that I am really very impressed with the Trapani bag. I can't find a tag on it anywhere but the upper is definitely made from leather. The bag is very well constructed and feels sturdy and well made.
I love the bag with it's studded zip tags, knotted straps and metalwork and cross stitch pattern on the sides, which add that extra something. The bag looks ten times better in real life than it does on the website.
The bag has loads of different compartments and will be perfect for taking along to client/suppler meetings as there more than enough room for my paperwork/iPad/notebooks etc.
So all in all, I'm really happy with what I got and I do think the bag is great quality for £39.95. I do think there are a few things the brand/website need to improve on to make the whole process easier. At the moment, I would say that a lot of people wouldn't be comfortable with the automatic payment system. It would be a better idea to make it a choice as well as the usual payment options. That way, people would feel more comfortable about shopping on the site without worrying about money being debited from their account and possibly putting them into an overdraft. I would also like to see the shoes and bags worn on models to gauge the size in relation to a person.
These are the things that would make the shopping experience on Shoedazzle better for me. Have you tried the site yet? What did you think?
