Review : Japanese Lolita Alice in Wonderland Book Purse

Price : 46.77 $ ( Now on sale for 40.32 $)

This was my first purchase from AsianiCandy. It took four days to ship my order (including a weekend) and 19 more days to arrive. The package arrived relatively quick considering it was shipped from China. I was also provided with a tracking code. The store has a reward program, so with every purchase you gain points and you can redeem them for coupon codes.
When I first saw this bag, I was hesitant to buy it. The photos on the site were blurry and they didn't provide a lot of information. The price was a bit high too (46.77 + 9.99 $ for shipping). Anyway, I took the risk and placed my order.

The bag has a adjustable strap which can also be removed. It has a magnetic closure which is not visible, it's strong and easy to use. The dimensions are 24cm x 17cm x 7cm, and the size is perfect for everyday use. It also has an inner pocket. The metal corners are a nice detail and they also protect the bag from beeing damaged. Details like the flower pattern in the corners and the border make it look like a book.

It's made of faux soft leather with a fabric lining. That means that it's not very stiff so if you don't fill it, it tends to loose its shape.
