PSSST! – Sometimes when you add a product to your bag there’s an info stating “Unfortunately we are not able to ship this product outside of the United Kingdom.” – However, I had this info on a pair of shoes I ordered which got shipped to me without any problem. Hence, I’d still try my luck anyways. The worst that can happen is your order getting cancelled and you’ll get your money back. Best thing that could happen to you? Getting the real Acne Pistol booties for 25% OFF (you won’t find these on sale ANYWHERE else)! Btw, Kurt Geiger also ships to Europe and the US (though shipping costs are admittedly a little steep). Have fun shopping around!


So can we first gush a little about the incredibly talented lady that is Wendy from Wendy’s Lookbook?! Seriously, girl has got mad style & a very refined taste. Her outfits are always so well put together; never bland or boring. Case in point: this lovely striped outfit that instantly caught my eye. So I decided to recreate it on a more budget-friendly level. What do you think? Does it do Wendy’s style justice? I can’t believe she’s been style blogging only a little over a year. Such a pro already! Haven’t heard of Wendy yet? Then hop over to her blog and make sure to subscribe to her just as lovely channel on YouTube (she’s awesome at doing fashion-related videos, too!)

Review: BagInc Alexa Studded Bag

by Irina on March 4, 2012

Like many of you I was quite smitten with Alexander Wang’s Rocco bag, but again, like many of you, I didn’t have a spare $875 to indulge in this studded handbag goodness. Then I discovered BagInc’s “Alexa” – a bag quite worthy of the perfect “Doppelgänger”-title, all that for $179 (and we’re speaking real leather bag here!). But since I’ve always been more of a shoe girl, acquiring new footwear was always first priority, hence I never got around to actually buy this fabulous looking bag. Luckily, a few months later my fashion blogger status enabled me to get this studded beauty for free because BagInc contacted me and asked whether I’d be interested in reviewing this particular bag since they saw so many orders from people who found this bag via our Real vs. Steal post on the Alexander Wang Rocco bag. I was. Here is my review:

Review: BagInc Alexa Studded Bag in black

The first thing I can confirm (which you can probably already see from my photos above) is YES, the bag looks just as good in real life as it does on the product photo. And it feels goood, too. But first things first.

The bag arrived packed very flat, so what I did first was restoring the bag’s shape by stuffing it full with leftover padding material. I let the bag sit like that for around 2 days, then took it for a closer inspection. What really stood out most to me was the supberb quality and the involved craftmanship, I didn’t quite expect to get that from a $159 bag that came all the long way to me from Hong Kong, China. So I looked closer and tried to find the catch. But nothing. The brass hardware looked good, zipper worked like a charm, no loose threads or horrible stitching or any sign of smelly leather.

Another thing I really liked about this bag is the textured leather which feels soft yet sturdy and is also cut quite thick which I think is a huge bonus since paperthin leather bags tend to rip easier and wear down quicker.


There are two minor things that slightly bugged me about this bag. 1.) I wished it was about 2-3 inches wider which I think would make the bag look less square-ish when you’re looking at it from the front. 2.) Due to its duffle shape the bag looks best when it’s stuffed to the brim. The structure of the bag is not stable enough to hold up the round shape on its own, so if you want the full-fledged duffle shape you have to stuff the bag which might be a problem to some of you who, opposed to me, don’t tend to carry all their belongings in their bag.

P.S.: If anyone’s interested in the details of my outfit. I got the coatls and scarf (sold out!) from ASOS, the ring is from The Quiet Riot (YSL Arty ring look-a-like). Shoes are by Dolce Vitaamazon.

Bottom Line

It is a quality bag and definitely worth the $179 investment (get it for less by using our exclusive 10% OFF promo code “INTHEIRCLOSET“). Apart from the 2 minor things I mentioned above the bag is pretty much perfect.

Do I recommend this bag? Yes. Would I have bought it with my own money? Yes, I just didn’t because sometimes you have to see (and feel) something in real life before you recognize its true fabulousness.

Don’t believe me? Read one of the many bag reviews which are almost all 4-5 star reviews with people being totally amazed by the quality of this bag (just like I am!).


  • Great quality & craftmanship!
  • Fair price!
  • Real leather!
  • Alexander Wang Rocco look for a fraction of the original’s price!


  • Could be a few inches wider!
  • Duffle shape best visible when bag is filled generously with stuff
