Maggie Bags #Review

This post may contain affiliate links or I may have received the product free in exchange for my honest review. See full disclosure for more information.

Let’s be honest, nearly every gal loves a great purse or handbag.  I am no exception.  Now I don’t have a HUGE collection of bags for every occasion or outfit; however, I do have a nice amount of bags that I can exchange out each season or for the occasional night out on the town.

When given the chance to review a bag from Maggie Bags, I was truly excited.  Maggie Bags are a unique and versatile line of bags that come in a wide array of colors, sizes and designs.

About their products:

Maggie Bags™ seat belt handbags are made using automotive seat belt webbing built to meet government safety standards to protect you in your car. Due to these high standards, millions of yards of seat belt material are rejected by automakers each year. Maggie Bags™ uses as much of this rejected material as possible in our seat belt purses and seat belt handbags.  Availability of rejected seat belt webbing can vary greatly therefore some must be purchased new to meet the growing demand for our unique and stylish seat belt handbags. However, our commitment to use repurposed material whenever possible remains steadfast.

The Maggie Bags™ team is continually looking for creative ways to do our part for the environment.  We are proud that the construction of our handbags is a simple cut-and-sew operation. This helps to minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing new materials and eliminates the need for typical recycling processes that consume large amounts of energy and other resources.

I love that they are so in touch with the environment and use sustainable material to create their product.  I chose the Campus Tote to review.

The bag could not have arrived at a better time.  My family was headed out of town for a 10 day venture to Florida  and I was excited to take my Maggie Bags Campus Tote with me.  Switching out my usual handbag for this handy tote proved to be a wise choice.  My Maggie Bag went with us everywhere, including the Magic Kingdom (Pictured below).

This bag has become my new purse.  Throughout the course of our trip, it help my wallet, my camera, my beach towel and other essentials.  It has a great zipper on top to keep everything in tact and secure.

I choose this awesome color, Bullet.  It goes with everything and is very chic looking.  I have continued to use my Maggie Bag even after our return home.  It carries my wallet, lunch, work papers and more.  I love my Maggie Bag and will continue to carry it.  I would highly recommend you check out the Maggie Bags line and invest in one of your own.  With so many colors to choose from, you are sure to find the right style, design and color to fit your style.
