This gym bag is just as beautiful in person as it is in the photos! I know we aren't traveling anywhere at the moment but I am looking forward to the day I can use this as both a gym bag and an overnight bag for a weekend getaway! It is roomy enough to fit my water bottle, change of clothes, shoes, and toiletries. The seatbelt handles are a nice touch and is a sturdy feature for carrying heavier items. This was my early Christmas gift to myself. It is worth the splurge as there is no other bag out there like it!
Let me start off with that I was waiting for this for many years. My first Ogorgeous bag was from 2013 and it was her Pleated Pocket Ballet Pink Sparkle bag. Later I bought 4 of her yoga bags and later her Plum Beverly Bow tie Gym Bag. I was super obsessed and they were perfect for the gym, travel, and even as an overnight bag for bachelorette parties. After 7 years of use they all fell apart.
So I was super excited when Cassey announced she was releasing another line of gym bags. It is pricey but mind you that her gym bags before costed about $150 with no discounts. So I wasn’t too surprised with this price point since she no longer is using the fake leather like her bags before.
So the pros. It is lightweight and it’s full of pockets. It still has its keychain ring. She no longer has a place to snap on your lock.Of course she still added in the wonderful yoga mat holder in the front and the zipper pocket on the bottom for your shoes. Though I wish she gave a shoe bag like she did before instead of a dust bag. But that’s just me.
The origami bow definitely gives a more mature look than before. I understand why she did it since she is only a couple weeks older than I am. She’s definitely moving away from the old cutesy look she had before to something that I’ve seen in high end boutiques. The only downside that I’ve mentioned in another review is that the bow is slightly frayed and that is just the nature of the material she has picked. I’ve provided a picture of that issue.
But overall I’m happy with my new bag. I plan to use it in the future as a diaper and pumping bag. And of course a travel bag when that becomes a thing again.
I have one of Cassey's Ogorgeous gym bags from 2015 and wow, how her designs have changed in a good way! The material is extremely soft, the material where the shoes go is different (kind of like the inside of a lunch box to easily be wiped down), the buckles and zippers seem sturdy, and it's a beautiful color! Only thing I worry about it the snaps that opens behind the bow to put your yoga mat seem like if you aren't careful enough, the material could rip if you pull too hard. Other than that, love everything about this bag!
This luxury bag comes in a special drawstring cover like the night stars which is the lining of the bag!!! I have no words to describe the sheer quality and feel of the bag (you NEED to get one!) The strong seatbelt strap is good for the shoulder carry but there are beautiful strong handles too.The compartments are just EVERYTHING! It unpoppers at the beautiful origami bow to let you insert your gorgeous Popflex pilates mat. (Genius)The pockets everywhere for convenience are awesome. The bag is super practical for fitness peeps but makes an enviable and stylish overnight bag too..... beyond happy with my beautiful Belladona Bag :)
First off, I just want to say that I think this bag is lovely overall. I’d like to commend Cassey on her hard work and dedication to designing such a quality product. I decided to buy it after seeing the reviews and popularity of the bag, but in truth….I didn’t actually need it. I thought I would really like it, and while I do think it’s nice, it’s just not for me, and I can't justify keeping it. I don’t know if I see it as too fancy or what. I certainly don’t see it as a “gym bag” but as more of a luxury travel bag that I’d be too afraid of losing or somehow wrecking. I mean, I know there’s a few things I’m not really a fan of in terms of appearance, like the asymmetrical bow (I wanted to like it but it just looked funny to me), and the side buckles, which pull down the corners, I couldn’t really get over (I thought the bag looked better with the the corners up, not folded over like dog ears). I just couldn’t quite fall in love with it the way that I wanted to, and knew I already had several gym/duffel bags that I could use. So I decided I would be better off sticking to them and getting a refund for this. So I will be returning it, with the knowledge that some other girl will love it and be able to use it to its full potential. :)
This bag is perfect for so many occasions! It could be a weekender bag, carry-on bag, and diaper bag, in addition to it being an awesome gym bag! I don’t know why I bought a new bag during COVID when I literally only workout from home....but someday I will have a reason to pull this baby out of my closet and travel in style. It has so much room for anything you could need and I LOVE the separate shoe compartment and yoga mat holder!
Great to fit my gym clothes, shoes and slippers, laptop and make up bag and many other work stuff. The shape of the bag is not too sturdy or too flimsy when fully-packed. Bag strap is of strong seat-belt material.
