Review: Alexander Wang Rockie

I bought the Alexander Wang Rockie black soft pebbled leather bag with light golden harware. This basically is the mini version of the rocco duffle bag. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and I am so happy I kept it. I initially wanted the Rocco but I'm 5'2" and the Rocco felt too much like a gym bag on my petite frame! The Rockie is perfect if you are petite like me and it's hands down the perfect fall/winter bag I wear it all the time!
Pros: Sturdy, great quality, has a cross body strap, spacious enough to fit all my necessities, perfect for petite frames and can be worn with practically anything.

Cons: Can get heavy if you over pack it or wear it all day, double zipper can get annoying and hard to open and close other than that I am in love with this bag! you can get yours HERE and see how it looks on me HERE

i've been wanting to see mod pictures of this bag so i'm so glad i came across your blog! the less pebbly style looks great on you and the shine from the hardware is beautiful. i'm the same height as you and used to own a couple Roccos but agree that it looks too large on my frame now. you're definitely making me covet this less pebbly version Rockie!

Aww that's so cute! I totally get what you're saying about the rocco being too big! I'm also 5'2 and I bought a Rocco look alike, and I ended up using it as a school bag, because it was just too big for regular use!

omg i love it! I have the Rocco but it's not my favorite bag as it's a bit heavy to carry around all day. The mini looks perfect and I love that it has a cross body strap.
