Michael Kors has just released some new handbags and I’m in love with the MICHAEL Michael Kors “Uptown Astor Shoulder Tote.” I’ve always been a fan of the “Astor” satchel, but this tote is absolutely stunning.
What really caught my eye about this tote is the beautiful gold hardware that is featured all over the bag. Michael Kors handbags usually have silver hardware, and on occasion they will have gold hardware. I think the golden hardware looks much better on the bags. It really makes the bags stick out more, and compliments the leather well.
I think this would be a lovely bag for the Fall and Winter season’s. Dark colors seem to be everywhere now, and this bag would look great with any dark colored outfit. A “pro” about this bag is that it’s so versatile. Someone could literally use this bag all year long, and with so many different outfits. This is the type of bag that you can carry around when you’re wearing something casual, or even when you’re all dressed up.
The only thing I don’t like about this bag, is the hanging logo charm. It’s such a minor “con” but I’ve never liked Michael Kor’s hanging charms for some reason. I always tend to take the charms off of my Michael Kor’s bags, but most people do love them. I don’t feel they compliment the bags well, but if you like them then more power to you!
The MICHAEL Michael Kors “Uptown Astor Shoulder Tote” can be purchased at Michael Kors for $448. I do think the price is a little bit too much, but when a bag is this gorgeous I tend to think it’s worth it. It’s definitely a great black bag to add to any growing handbag collection.
