The Nine West Lock n Loaded is my kind of bag – functional and stylish. It’s large and fits the kitchen sink yet still looks good. It’s got a lot of pockets, inside and out, good for stashing fountain pens and makeup mirrors and other little whatnots. It has long handles for slinging over a shoulder, leaving hands free for tasks. It’s practical and eye-pleasing at the same time.
The trim and handles are black patent (including the bottom of the bag); the rest of it is gray faux leather. The metal hardware is gold-colored. The front flap hides a pocket and is adorned with a patent strap and faux circle “lock” engraved with the brand name. The other round black circle, on the right, is a pocket mirror.
A zipper on top ensures things inside won’t fall out.
There are pockets a-plenty on the front, back, and inside.
There is a pocket hidden under the front flap! How cool is that – a little secret repository for valuable things.
The cavernous interior can hold an entire kitchen, not just a sink. Useful, eh?
Stuffed with my daily arsenal, it still has room for more. Clearly this is a bag to be reckoned with.
The Lock n Loaded is available at the Nine West store at Powerpoint Mall, Rockwell Drive, Makati.
