Ah, the elusive Gabriela Hearst Nina bag. I purchased my Nina bag in black several years ago, but never wrote a review on it because the bag sold out in a hot minute. Then, the counterfeiters entered the market in droves, so I held off on a review because the real deal was still extremely difficult to come by. Now that the fakes have stopped advertising online, and the real deal is readily available from a few different stores, in a variety of colors, I decided it was time to do a review. After all, this is a beautiful handbag which is downright fun to have in your collection! Love!
I really love my Gabriela Hearst Nina bag! This is a pouch style handbag with a handle that makes it easy to carry hand-held, or on the forearm. The clasp is easy to open and close, although, due to the very open top of the bag, it is best to put it down on a counter or table when reaching inside.
The interior is quite roomy for a small bag. There is a small pocket inside which is a great for a card you need to reach for, such as an ID or similar. You can also fold dollars or receipts and store them in the pocket slot. Otherwise, the main body of the bag offers enough room for a wallet, phone, keys, lipstick, and glasses case, with a bit of room to spare.
The bag itself is on the dressy side, so while you can wear it during the day to spice up a look, it is a bag I reach for when I go out in the evenings. I enjoy wearing mine for dinner, the theater, or going out at night in general. I have worn it during the day when I am in the mood to wear it instead of a shoulder bag or satchel. Sometimes you are just in the mood for a fun bag!
I know a lot of designer bags these days fail to offer the quality they once boasted, and made thier price worthwhile. This is not the case with this Gabriela Hearst bag. The Nina bag is made from extremely soft yet sturdy leather. In the photo below, you can see the excellent condition of the bag, which I have had since 2018. It is also strong, as I have carried it with my camera inside, as well as all the items you see above. My camera is small, but still adds some weight. Full review here.
At this point, the Gabriela Hearst Nina bag has moved from IT status, into a classic and unique bag that stands the test of time. If you are interested in investing in a bag that is fun, and transcends trends, this is a great choice!
