When Olivia + Joy asked me to review a bag of their spring collection, I did not hesitate a moment to accept. I really love the Olivia+Joy collections.

Olivia + Joy keeps you covered with vegan bags for every occasion

Their spring collections offer everything from cute for Sunday’s Best or the Easter brunch, over sexy for date night out, sporty casual for going to the gym, a play date, walking the dog or heading to the beach, to structured and sophisticated for work. The Rock’n Roll gal can find bags with studs and chains, while the hard-to-die romantic finds bags with bows and ruffles. All these bags are fashion-forward, well-organized, affordable, high quality pleather bags. From far you can’t even tell that it is not leather!

Olivia + Joy’s Sylvia summer bag keeps you organized

Have a look at it yourself! The photos above illustrate the bag’s functionality. There are two roomy compartments that fit even a tablet or laptop. One compartment has two side pockets, one fits a phone, the other fits a wallet or (sun)glasses. In the large other compartment, you find a small zipper pocket for change and another pocket for keys. These multiple pockets inside the Olivia+Joy bag allow you to be organized and find everything when you need it. The bag has a nice Olivia + Joy printed lining. Such lining interiors go only without saying for high-end, expensive bags.

This sample bag from the Olivia + Joy Spring 2015 collection is a twist on the well-known classic silhouette of a straw bag with leather frame (photo above). The straw part is actually woven. The bag has a handle and a chain link with pleather strap to keep the hands free. All darts and seams are sewn with same width. Such exact craftsmanship I only take for granted for expensive leather bags.

How I styled the bag

These features make their bags a go-to for women at any age. Their classic-with-a-twist look elevates an outfit to turning heads. In this post, I styled the bag classic casual à la Jackie Kennedy. Wearing the bag with a floral dress, a fit-and-flare dress, or a floral skirt and blazer for work are other great options. This Olivia + Joy bag will even work with jeans and a T-shirt for going to the beach or walking the dog.

In summary: Thumbs up

This bag has an awesome price-performance ratio. Its style and size make the bag versatile for work and play.

Currently, Olivia+Joy have a sale with 20% Off on all new spring styles with promo code NEWOJ10, plus free domestic shipping on all orders! Without this promo their bags are already a great deal for everyone, but with this promo they are a steal. I better keep my eyes open. It looks like Celestina, the cat, is even interested in this bag! 😉

P.S.: They are very consistent with their great quality pleather bag. I reviewed two other bags from them that were both exceeding my expectations. You can find my review of Olivia + Joy’s Fall 2014 collection at the link.
