    Here is what I saw on the Net about Traces of Kale...

    Created by seasoned designer Jennifer Kale, Trace handbags reflect her easy-going attitude and commitment to craftsmanship. Trace, a play on “tres,” the Spanish word for “three,” embodies the simplicity and perfection of its namesake.

    I got my bag & all in all I am happy

    It's brighter yellow in person but I like the color so that's OK.


    I feel like the image that Hautelook posted of the bag for the sale had the aspect ratio out of whack though because I thought the bag was going to be a lot wider than tall which it is not. But... the bag I got is the exact dimensions as the website had listed. Again I am fine with the size, it just wasn't what I had pictured in my mind.


    We have discussed Traces of Kale vs Kale. It seems like Kale retails for more & is probably a lot better quality than the Traces of Kale bags. I am fine with the bag quality vs the price I paid but had I paid full retail I would not be so fine with it & would feel a bit ripped off

    It is like the leather isn't top notch quality. It is a bit rough in texture. It simply looks like leather that has been dyed yellow. In contrast I have my kelly green Coach handbag which retails for the same price but has a softer more expensive feeling leather. The leather is dyed so perfectly on my Coach that you would swear it is not dyed but instead came off a green cow Also the zippers on the Traces of Kale do not flow like butter (if you know what I mean). They seem cheapish.


    All in all I am quite pleased with the bag even if I don't sound like it. This is just my version of a mini review of a product that maybe you have never seen in person. I am new at this handbag thing so my descriptions are not so precise & if there are explanations for things like the difference in leather texture that you handbag pros know about please share because I am all about learning


    Lastly I will leave you with something a bit scary I will warn those of you who are sensitive to some things... LOOK AWAY NOW as the following may not be suitable for viewers of all ages. They selected a blue parachute-like fabric for the inside lining. I am not wild about parachute material as IMHO it also adds an air of cheapness. I myself would have opted for a different shade inside because when I say it's blue I mean wooooooooooooooooooooow, it's blue...

    Hey DB, the color is so intense!! And I wouldn't worry too much about the zipper.. it will probably slide alot better after a few uses.

    Just so you guys know... I emailed gilt & told them that my referrer did not get her $25 reward from my purchase, explaining how it showed I didn't register from her link. A very nice lady quickly emailed me back & said she would manually give her the reward.

    YAY for gilt doing the right thing
    (well they haven't "officially" done it yet but I got my eye on them )
