The Katie bag is absolutely gorgeous! The sleek design and sturdy material, stitching and handles/strap means this bag will be a functional accessory to your wardrobe for many years. I love that the bag exterior has a textured look and feel but can easily be wiped off if something gets spilled on it. The interior sections and pockets will insure all of your necessities stay in their place for easy access. With two large inner areas, separated by a zippered pouch, you can keep items easily accessible without your bag looking bulky. Included is a second smaller zippered area that is perfect for car keys or loose change to feed those pesky car meters or hit the vending machine between meetings. And the pockets along the interior lining will keep your cell phone, memo pad, pens and more at your fingertips.

Katie Black Medium Saffiano SatchelThe product description at the 88 Handbags website describes this handbag as having “simple elegance.” I cannot think of a more fitting description for The Katie. The 88 Handbags logo tag can be removed, if desired, but I left it on because I think it only adds to the elegance of the bag.

Katie Black Medium Saffiano SatchelTo give a better idea of the size of this satchel, I tucked my iPad2 inside one of the inner sections. And, mind you, it's not just the iPad — but also the bluetooth keyboard case that my iPad is encased in — that I tried to get into this bag. It fits perfectly with a little room to tuck other stuff down in that same side, like a notebook or small makeup bag or any number of things. The magnetic clasp will keep things from falling out of the bag in the event that it gets dropped or tipped over.

Katie Black Medium Saffiano SatchelThe Katie comes with sturdy, well-constructed handles for carrying the bag at your side, but also includes a longer strap for shoulder-toting this beauty either at your side or cross-body. Another plus, for me, is the construction of the bottom of the bag. When you set the bag down on a table, chair or floor (or wherever you stash it) it will stand firmly and not flop over onto its side.
