J. Crew Colorblock Edie Grand ReviewOctober 22, 2012
Reader Jessie alerted me to a sale on colorblock Edie Grands in-store in the comments for this post and I asked J to stop by J. Crew on his way home from work. I was ecstatic to learn that the bag was only $89.99 before discounts and couldn't pass it up even though it was nowhere on my radar before that day.
For me, purchases made entirely on bargain considerations usually end up gathering dust in the back of my closet in mere days but this bag has won me over completely.

The design is almost identical conceptually to the Edie purse with some differences in overall shape. The only other differences in appearance are that the Edie Grand has two metal feet (but I couldn't get mine to stand on its own) and has an additional pocket in the back.
Additionally, and I know I've said this numerous times in the past, but the Edie bags are made from smooth leather that attracts scratches, dents, and other signs of wear. I think the light camel color is especially susceptible to abuse so if you decide to get the bag, be prepared for imperfections that come with routine wear.
Do you own any members of the Edie family? Which is your favorite?
