  1. So I am new to Botkier, before these forums I had never heard of them - but I am now trying to decide between two bags on Botkier's sale page on Botkier.com.

    http://www.botkier.com/browse/sale.html

    I am trying to decide between the Stevie Satchel (in burgundy) and the Stevie Hobo (in sapphire). I figure since it's a great sale I should look into it. Which one would you recommend? How do these bags hold up?
     
  2. Your link isn't working. Just an FYI.

    But anyway, between the two, I would go with the Satchel because the shape is way cuter and more original. Personally, I think the Hobo is a bit more juvenile in its shape. Versatile, but somewhat juvenile. I also like the burgundy color more for that reason. It looks richer and jewel-y.

    There was a tPf blog post about the Satchel a while back. http://www.purseblog.com/botkier/review-botkier-stevie-satchel.html

    As for how they hold up, here are some pros and cons:
    Pros: easy to clean for minor damage (just wipe with a wetnap), lightweight, shiny (maybe a con?)

    Cons: the nylon can "fray" (at Nordie's, some of the sale Botkiers had edges that were "fuzzy" because of things chaffing against the nylon), how do you clean set-in stains (like if you pour a whole coffee on it)
     
  3. I would go with the Satchel too.
     
  4. Thanks for your help girls. I just found them both on Amazon for for about 40 dollars cheaper than the sale section on Botkier's site so....I think I may take the plunge!
     
  5. Thanks Emma, I did look at that and decided not to go with Amazon. Since ShopBop was listed on Botkier's website, I looked there instead and bought the Black Chrystie Satchel - it looked like a pretty cute bag - so I'll be excited to see it!

    This entire forum is so bad for my wallet, haha.
