Gabbygale Bags Review & {GIVEAWAY!} CLOSED

Gabbygale is another great site that offers women's bags at extremely affordable prices. I am pretty sure their most expensive bag is only $34.99. With only $5 shipping or free shipping with orders over $50, there really isn't any reason to buy purses other than online.
I chose to review the Striped Bow Hobo bag. I chose this bag because it reminded me of one of my favorite bags I had purchased at T.J Maxx a few years ago. The bag I purchased then was pretty pricey still because it was a name brand. It was also canvas material and had a metallic sheen to it just like my new bag from Gabbygale. Unfortunately, my bag from T.J Maxx lasted me only a couple of months. It was poorly made and the straps were stitched on, which I found a bit odd because it was a big bag intended to hold a lot of stuff.
I was so pleased when I received my Striped Bow Hobo bag from Gabbygale. Not only do I think it is a cuter bag than my T.J Maxx bag, it is by far less expensive at only $20.99, and it really is high quality and built to last.
The strap is very thick and strong. It is held on the bag by metal clips that are also strong. I am convinced I will own this bag for quite some time.
Like I have said before, I use all my big bags as diaper bags. Although, this bag is not intended to be a diaper bag, these side pockets would be perfect for bottles.
I love the black and white striped lining on the inside. The bag is also very spacious which is great for me because I just throw in everything I will need for my son. It also has a zipper pocket inside and 2 open pockets for a cell phone or camera.
The back of the purse has another zipper pocket which I love to put pacifiers in for quick access.
WIN IT!!
