This blogpost is loooong overdue: a whole post dedicated to one of my favorite designer bags, The Alexander Wang Mini Rockie in Pebbled Black with Rose Gold. After I bought this back during my trip to New York City at the Alexander Wang Flagship Store almost a year (!) ago, and showing this bag to you in many of my outfits on my blog, Instagram and Youtube channel, I'm finally going to share all the ins and outs on this designer bag with you.
Let's talk details. I choose to purchase the the Alexander Wang Mini Rockie with rose gold hardware, because I liked this size and color scheme the most (I mean c'mon, rose gold!). This bag comes in 4 sizes: micro (which is way too small in my opinion), mini (the one I have), Rockie (the Mini Rockie style is 45% smaller in size than the classic Rockie sling) and the Rocco (a big duffle bag style). The handbag has a large main compartment and generous zipper opening. The exterior of the bag has rose gold studded bottom and two hidden zipper pockets in exterior side fold. It has a adjustable shoulder strap with signature rose gold dog clips and two top handles, which makes it really practical (and great for petite and tall girls). The interior is polyester lined interior and has a zip pocket with the Alexander Wang logo patch and phone pockets. It's made from 100% lambskin and it comes with a dust bag. The measures are: 8"L x 5"H x 3"W.
There are many reasons why I love this bag. Let me sum them up for you!
WHY I LOVE THIS BAG
- The backstory. This bag was my first designer bag crush ever. When I was 16, I was completely obsessed with the Alexander Wang Rocco with gold. I remember when I was in high school, I had this cheap knock off version of it, which I loved. After a while, I kinda got over it and its hype, so I didn't really care for it that much. However, when I saw this bag in real life for the first time in the Alexander Wang Flagship Store in NYC, I instantly fell back in love. This bag is even prettier in real life, you have to believe me. Now I'm kind of reunited with my high school sweetheart, haha!
- Its design. I would describe this bag as a cutie with an attitude - just like myself, haha! Despite the bold, tough rose gold studs on this bag, it has a very chic and classy feel. In my opinion, it's the perfect mix between minimal, sophisticated and edgy!
- Functionality. When it comes to Alexander Wang, I really feel like you're paying a bit extra for the great quality and design. His designs are always well thought of and very functional. This bag has many different pockets, great quality hardware and a big opening. The spacious opening of this bag makes it possible for you to put all your stuff in vertically instead of horizontally. This is way more practical, so your bag can stay super organized all the time!
- Rose gold. I mean, do I even have to say more? I'm obsessed with anything rose gold, but unfortunately it's quite hard to find items with rose gold details. The fact that this bag has rose gold hardware is just amazing, because it goes with all my rose gold jewelry perfectly!
