Jord Haifa cross body clutch review

How cute is this convertible cork clutch! You may recognize it from my holiday handbag capsule, which I posted last week. I always love owning bags which have more than one purpose in life. The Jord Haifa has exactly that. It is a dressy clutch and it is also a dressy cross body bag. Or, if you are feeling a little disco, you can wear it on your shoulder and rock the long strap shoulder strap look which was hotter than hot in the late ’70’s and early ’80’s. This is great news because it means the Jord Haifa can be worn three ways! Love that!

One of the big movements in the fashion industry right now is sustainability. Fashion designers and brands are working hard to make their products more sustainable and environmentally friendly. What I love about Jord’s handbags is that they are made from cork; making them inherently sustainable and vegan. It feels good to wear something I know is sustainable, and not damaging to the environment.

What fits inside the Jord Haifa cross body bag

It’s the ideal size inside. In addition to a zipper pouch and credit card slots, I can fit my full-size wallet, lipstick, keys, and iPhone inside the Jord Haifa. This makes it very easy to wear since I don’t have to pair down my purse essentials when I leave the house. I can throw what I need inside, and I am ready to leave the house! Love that!

The Jord Haifa cross body bag also offers luxurious design details. I love the gold flecks on the black cork, and high quality hardware. In addition, the red, faux suede lining is soft and beautiful. I love how everything works together to create a bag which looks much, much more expensive than $149! I really would add numbers to that price! It’s an amazing value.

Attention to details

The details on the Jord Haifa are absolutely amazing, and high quality. The clasp has a lock on it which snaps into place, making the bag secure yet still easy to get into. The two little knobs push together and voila! the clasp opens, allowing you access to the interior of the bag. Thankfully it’s tricky enough to keep pick-pocking fingers out of the bag. Love!

There is a strong, gold chain strap which is detachable that comes with the Jord Haifa cross body clutch. It has easy-to-snap-on clasps which go underneath the exterior flap; so the loops are hidden. This is a really luxurious feature. The straps adds additional luxury to the bag which adds security when you are wearing it hands free. I love how it looks with the strap!

Loving this bag! I hope you do too. It would make a great holiday bag, as well as gift for the handbag fan on your holiday list!

Thanks for stopping by!

Holidays 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe

My holidays 2020 handbag capsule wardrobe is here! This holiday 2020 season, I am paring down my bag rotation since parties have been cancelled, and we will be home much more than in past holiday seasons.

For the holiday season, I need a workhorse, everyday bag. That bag is my Givenchy Antigona. It is a bag I have had in my wardrobe for years, and it’s strong construction, coupled with ideal interior capacity, makes it the perfect everyday bag of the season. If you are looking for an investment bag to enjoy for years, this is it!

Of course, it is always fun to mix things up! For casual occasions, when I don’t need a workhorse bag, this soft clutch is perfect. It holds coveted IT bag status, and it’s roomy enough to fit my sunglasses case, hand sanitizer, and few extra masks in addition to my wallet and phone. I also love that it’s red (flamma) inside! So fun!

Lastly, outdoor dining is beautiful during the holiday season as the streets are lined with lit up trees and seasonal decor. I am looking forward to wearing this sustainable and vegan, cork handbag on dressier occasions. It has golden flecks, and a detachable gold chain strap. It also happens to be red inside, love that! I also love the versatility of the detachable straps, it’s nice to have a bag which can be worn as a shoulder bag or clutch. Stay tuned for my upcoming review next week!

Beach season is here! Don’t let the morning fog in these photos fool you; it turned out to be a beautiful day at Capitola Beach! Over the weekend, we took the kids to the beach. We stopped at Zelda’s first for brunch; they have the best hot chocolate! Then, the kids built a little sand town on the beach while I dove into a new book. My friend Laura from Have-Need-Want lives close-by, so she walked over to the beach to say hi! My teen daughter loved meeting her baby. So fun!

This affordable swimsuit cover up, which doubles as a dress, was perfect for the day. It was easy to wear to brunch, for a stroll through town, and on the beach! With high heel sandals, this cover up would make a cute sun dress for date night on a hot day! I love how versatile this affordable swimsuit cover up is for the summer months. Nothing beats pieces which can be used for multiple types of occasions. This cover up hits all the points!

If you are looking for a fabulous bikini, my black and white striped bikini is so comfortable, and I love the side ties! The cut is flattering; I am in love!

I love the look of wooden watches; especially in the summer! My favorite wood watch is on sale today for Amazon Prime Day. It is 30% off which is a great deal! I love how it plays so well with my handbag. Natural materials are so perfect for the summer!
