Hi babes! Today I have something different to show you 😀 I finally bought my Furla Candy Bag a little while ago! I decided to go with the Emerald-Green & Citron-Yellow ombre sunset bag and I love love love it!
The leather strap that you see in this picture from the Furla website is not included but sold separately
The CANDY SUNSET has been made with careful craftsmanship. The special shades of color and the differences between one style and the other make each Candy a Unique Limited Edition. Each detail and every finish is guaranteed by high control and operating standards to provide a product that is still hand-crafted in terms of its care and manufacture. Furla CANDY SUNSET handbags were subjected to the most stringent tests, so they are free from any hazardous substance, in particular those phthalates harmful to health.
This bag was already on my wish list for such a long time. It was really hard to decide what color to pick, there are so many amazing colors and I liked all of them! I finally decided to get the Emerald-Green & Citron-Yellow Sunset bag, this one fits the best because I’m a ginger so I wear a lot of green/brown/yellow clothes and the bag was a bit too expensive to choose a color that I couldn’t use that much.
The bag arrived in a Furla dust bag and all the details like the lock and tag were nicely wrapped. When I unpacked the bag it had a muffy rubber smell, but that was gone the next day. The bag is completely see-trough and I know many people will not like this because you can see all your stuff inside, but I really don’y mind. Because of some problems with my body I’m not allowed to carry too heavy so I always make sure my bag is as empty as possible, I only take what I really need for that day.
The quality looks really good and firm. I’ve used the bag for three weeks now before making this review. I read online that some people had problems with their candy bags and I wanted to make sure that it didn’t happen with mine before writing an exiting review about it. I know of course that things can still happen but if it’s really bad I will update this post, for now I don’t have any problems with the quality, the bag is firm and can hold many items. I think the size is perfect (30 cm x 20.5 cm x 17 cm), it’s the exact same size as my Louis Vuitton Speedy and for me this is the best size, it’s not too big and not too small.
If there is one thing that I’m less excited about it’s the weight. Like I said, I like to carry less stuff as possible but this bag is already pretty heavy without anything it in it 🙁 Still, it doesn’t make me love the bag less, it’s so pretty and unique, I got many compliments wearing this bag! If you like the ombre bags you can also check the new collection for Fall 2013, they have new ombre bags! I think they are pretty, but they are combined with black and I think the bag get’s too dark but that’s because I was really looking for a happy bright summer bag, I already have so many dark ones! Now I have my eyes set on the Furla Candy Bag in Bouganville-Violet from the new collection, oooooh I love that one! Yeps, a new Furla addict is born 😀
About the service. I bought the Furla bag from the original website, the payment went really well, I could use my paypal account and they shipped the bag the same day, how fast! The bag was in no-time from Italy to The Netherlands, big plus for that! Also if you order something and you don’t like it you have the option to return it for free, even if you don’t live in Italy! This is something that I really like, not everybody has the option to see these bags in the store (at least I don’t!) and this way you don’t buy something that you maybe regret because It’s not what you expected. Perfect service, like every webshop should be! 😀
What do you think about the Sunset bag?
