Baggallini for the Ultimate Handbag


Disclosure review

There are certain things that a lady will never have enough of. No, I’m not talking about shoes. Rather, I’m referring to handbags. Oh, how I love handbags! Recently, I received the Gold Helsinki Bagg from Baggallini. This handbag is everything I’ve ever wanted in a handbag and much more!


Baggallini was founded by two flight attendants. Who better to know exactly what to include in the design of a bagg than two women who have made that their profession. They just get it – and from there Baggallini grew. These bags are designed for the traveler, whether that’s traveling to the grocery store or on a wild adventure. Stay organized, while having a great handbag.

I was interested in the Helsinki bagg because I adore crossbody bags. Particularly those crossbody bags that are convertible from carrying on my shoulder to wearing crossbody. The Helsinki bagg did not disappoint. It features a 52” adjustable crossbody strap, a generous size!


I appreciate a handbag that features organization – and that’s exactly what you’ll find with Baggallini. The Helsinki bagg has three sections, a turn lock closure in the front, a zippered opening in the middle and a magnetic closure in the back. Inside, you’ll find a host of multi-functional pockets…there is a place for everything! Within the turn lock center, you’ll find a quick access phone pocket (and it fits the iPhone 6 Plus – score!). I use this pocket for my sunglasses though, it keeps them perfectly protected. Inside the zippered center you’ll find an organizational area with a zippered closure for loose items, straps for writing utensils, a place for any credit cards or business cards and pockets for anything else.


There’s a tablet pocket on the other side, yes, that’s my kindle tucked away neatly! Also included is a removable wristlet as well as a key holder. If that weren’t enough, there are two more writing utensil straps near the top of the zipper, so you have no excuse for not being able to find a pen! Love it!

Side Pocket Baggallini

If that weren’t enough – I know…there’s more – there are two zippered pockets on the side.  I didn’t even notice them at first!  This is where I put my cell phone.  It’s easy to drop it in and I know it’s secure.  So secure in fact I completely forgot I’d put it there and I may have had a *minor* meltdown because I thought I lost my phone.  Oops!  This handbag has it all!

The Helsinki bag is not only a great size (this said from a girl who think the bigger the bag, the better!) but it’s made from a lightweight, water-resistant nylon.  That means it’s easy to wipe clean, if necessary.  The Helsinki bagg is  13”x11”x2” and has lovely goldtone hardware. This bag retails for $118.00 and comes in a variety of colors. From solids like black, charcoal and pacific to the lovely pewter midnight floral that I received.

    I like the side pockets for hiding my phone so I can find it quickly rather than fumbling through other stuff.

  2. Love the zippered pockets on the side. I might use those for my cell phone too, maybe even all of my store rewards cards that are always in the way or too bulky in my wallet.

  3. The quick access phone pocket is an important feature for me. Whenever my phone rings I am fumbling around in my purse and this way I’d be able to locate my phone quickly before it stops ringing lol.

  4. I like several. I like that I can use it crossbody or over my shoulder. I also like the easy outside pocket for my cellphone or my keys. Perhaps I would even put my pepper spray in that pocket!

    the best thing about the Helsinki bag is the size, this would be great for my girlfriend who always makes me hold her cell phone and keys

  6. My fav thing is it zips shut. No zip shut, I do not want that purse. Unless it zips, you will someday, spill everything out when you least expect it. I love all the many compartments in it, too. And it’s sort of cute!

  7. I like the print on the bag and I like that it’s made from a lightweight, water-resistant nylon. Thanks.

  8. I will not buy a purse unless it has a cell phone pocket. I just love that feature. I also like the design on the purse.

  9. I like that it is lightweight and sophisticate color/pattern so it could go from personal to professional and love all the compartments
