Foxy New Addition to My Favorite Kate Spade Handbag

Hey there, friends! I’m finally back on the blog today to share a foxy new addition that I recently made to a handbag I shared with y’all back in July!

Do you remember kate spade new york’s adorable front-flap cross body handbag, the ‘Make It Mine’ Byrdie?

If you aren’t familiar with the ‘Make It Mine’ Byrdie, let me give you a quick rundown as to why it’s amazing! It’s made of high-quality crosshatched leather with a gold clasp closure. It comes in three color options and has so many customizable features like a removable top handle, adjustable cross body strap and inter-changable front flaps.

One of the things that I love about this handbag is that it can be worn two ways, as a cross body and as a satchel [see the diptych above]. The cross body strap is removable. It also comes with a dust bag so you can store the strap in the dust bag when you’re not using it. Similarly, you can remove the satchel strap if you don’t like it hanging down over the flap when wearing it as a cross body.

It’s super easy to change the front flap of the ‘Make It Mine’ Byrdie. Simply unsnap your current flap then tuck your new flap into the back pocket. Snap in the new flap to secure it. What I love is that the flaps snap into the back pocket so you don’t see the end of the flap. It looks like the flap is just a part of the bag. It’s completely seamless and gives the bag that classic look that kate spade new york is known for!

kate spade new york has released quite a few new front-flap options if you’re looking for a new one! I thought this fox flap was so cute and  perfect to wear with so many of my Fall outfits, thanks to all of the Autumnal colors incorporated in it. I linked some of my other favorites from their new releases as well as the classic ones I have and love.

If you are in need of a new handbag, why not get one you can wear so many ways? Please let me know if you have any questions about the ‘Make It Mine’ Byrdie! I’m happy to help!

Thanks for stopping by today, friends! Have a great day! xo.

    Does that flap fasten well with the two buttons on the back? It doesn’t fall off easily or anything? Just got the same flap and bag. Lovely pictures!! 🙂
