Hello lovelies! Last fall, Kate Spade showed an updated version of their iconic Sam bag at fashion week. I watched the Kate Spade live video on Instagram of their showcase, and knew immediately I had to get the bag! I have been obsessed with Kate Spade for years now, and own several bags from the brand. So, when the Sam was finally released about a month ago, I started to scope out which one I would get!
Before I got the bag, I did check out all the different variations of the bag. The Sam comes in materials like fabric, leather, canvas, and even straw. There’s so many colors, patterns, and sizes to choose from, so it’s easy to say there is a Sam for every girl out there! Originally, I thought I wanted the black nylon Sam, but after seeing the striped nylon in store, I knew it was the one.
Typically I’d go for a leather bag, but in true spirit of the original Sam, I opted for the nylon. Plus, I didn’t have a nylon bag until I got it, so it’s a little bit different then the rest of my collection.
The Sam is absolutely perfect for everyday use. It’s not too big or too small, and has a zipper closure to keep the bag shut. Inside, there’s two open pockets and one zippered pocket. It also came with a removable black strap, so it can be carried as a cross body, on the shoulder, or in your hand. The bottom of the bag is very sturdy and has metal feet to protect the underneath side of it from dust or dirt. I personally love that the bottom and edges of the bag are thicker because it will prevent the bag from slouching.
Overall, the Kate Spade Sam lived up to every expectation I had. I’m in love with the striped nylon version, but you should definitely take a look at the other versions before you buy to see which one is right for you! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest to see more of my daily life!
