`ROCKIE` by Alexander Wang

4 years ago

I finally got a Alexander Wang bag!!! I always thought the Rocco bag was nice but was too big. Well, Mr Wang must of read my mind because he came out with the `ROCKIE` which is a smaller version of the Rocco. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it. The black color was a little boring so I patiently waited for a nicer color to come out. There were different color options such as white, acid (neon green/yellow), Argon (teal), and grey. But when I saw this OYSTER color I was instantly in LOVE!!!! Its such a pretty light taupe shade that can also pass for like a latte/mocha color. The signature studs are a gold. Aside from the smaller size, I really like the texture of the leather better. Instead of the leather looking all "bubbly" or pebbled, this one is a smoother and less harsh. I really appreciate the long strap even though I prefer to wear it as a top handle. Its pretty roomy inside and the quality is awesome. The overall look is modern, sleek, simple, and edgy. However, there are 2 complaints that I do have. First, this bag is pretty HEAVY. I cant imagine how the original Rocco bag would be. This bag is so much smaller and it literally weighs a ton after some time. All the hi-quality studs and hardware definitely contribute to the weight. I can really feel pressure on my shoulders after wearing it all day with the shoulder strap. Secondly, since the color is so light, it gets dirty easily. If I`m wearing denim and it rubs against my jeans, the blue color transfers onto the purse and it will get pretty noticeable over time. Overall, I still love this bag. I got mine at Neiman Marcus, $795.
