Every now and again, I will see a piece of clothing or accessory…or in this instance, Michael Kors Selma bag and it’s love at first sight. When I first saw this bag, it just jumped out at me with its classic yet modern mix. I knew in my mind I had to have it…but….
Then my sister was telling me about needing a new bag where she could transition from work to casual; something structured, big enough to carry all her essentials yet not too overwhelming for her petite figure. Something that had a sturdy material and subtle hardware…oh and a strap so she could wear it on her shoulder too. As she was going through all the details, I was ticking it all off against the Selma bag. Seeing as it was also my sister’s birthday and I was looking for a nice gift for her, I decided to get her the Michael Kors Selma bag :)
And can I just say…the pictures I’ve seen, nor the photos I took here can do justice to how stunning this bag is in person; so I’m here to tell you all about why this bag can become a timeless piece in your closet too…
Michael Kors Selma bag (medium size) in Pearl Gray / Michael Kors Jet Set Wallet in Pearl Gray
Made of Saffiano leather, Michael Kors Selma bag has an embossed / brushed-look texture. This gives it perfect dimension and a sturdy feel overall. Featuring a shoulder strap, the Selma bag is available in many different colors: you can do a classic black or white, go in between like I did with a Pearl Gray; or you can opt for tan, gold, electric blue, snakeskin or lizard print. The hardware varies with either silver or gold depending on the color you choose. The very clean and simple lines of the Michael Kors logo against the leather also provides a classic yet modern look. No matter what color though, the style of this bag goes practically with everything.
**Bags that are more structured, tend to be more timeless and easier to pair up with many different styles of clothing.
Inside the bag is lined, with a zip pocket, as well as slots for your phone and other small scale items. It also features a strap for a coin purse. The base of the bag is flat with 4 silver tabs on each corner with Michael Kors logo embossed on them. There’s plenty of room to fit your iPad or your laptop comfortably, which makes it great for travel also.
When my sisters’ friends heard I was getting her the Selma bag, they all thought it would be a nice surprise if they got her the Michael Kors Jet Set wallet to match. The wallet has a full zipper all the way along the sides and top, opening to a zip coin pocket in the middle and plenty of card slots on either side. Needless to say my sister was a very happy birthday girl! :)
Michael Kors Selma bag starts from $358 for this particular size (medium) and ranges anywhere between $168 for the minis to $500 for the lizard or snakeskin versions. Michael Kors Jet Set wallets are around $138.
I linked the Michael Kors online store above, but the most variety (featuring some versions of the Selma bag currently on sale) was via this website HERE. They offer international shipping too so double check that your country is on the list ;)
