MICHE Bag Review and Giveaway

I recently received the chance to review and giveaway a wonderful product, The Miche Bag.  If you have never heard of the Miche company, they make wonderful bags/purses.  The best thing about these purses is that you have a base bag then you purchase separate covers to change the look of the bag.  Miche also has great work from home opportunities.
How Miche Came to Be...
On the way home from work in the fall of 2004, a young homemaker did something most women have done—she spilled on her favorite handbag. Frustrated by the thought of hunting for a replacement then transferring all the contents, she wished there was a way to just change the outside of the bag. The idea immediately popped into her mind to create a bag with changeable covers. Not to be deterred by her lack of sewing skills, she grabbed her super glue and some scrap fabric, took apart the stained bag, and made the very first prototype. With her rough creation in hand, she set out on a mission to bring the Miche Bag to life.
With Miche's four base bag sizes, there is a size to fit all of your needs.  They have the Petite(small), The Classic (a little larger than the petite), The Demi (medium sized), and The Prima (large size).  The one I am reviewing is the Demi.  
I received one Demi base bag and two shells to review.  I also received one Prima base bag and two shells to share with one of you. The giveaway will follow the review so keep reading. Being a mom of two, this is the bag for me! We as mom's do not have the time to sit down and empty a purse and fill another one.  With the  Miche you don't have to do that.  You start out with the base bag of your choice. Then you pick your shell.They are very easy to switch out.  There is a magnet inside the top of the purse and all you do is slip the base bag down in the shell and fold the flaps from the shell over into the base bag and they stay put.  My husband wanted to know how well these magnets would hold up to a have load. He knows my purse is always pretty full of stuff. So he held the shell while I pulled up on the bag.  It took quite a bit of pulling to get them to separate.  I love the shells that they sent.  Ivy has roses on it and Lisa is a leopard print.  The thing I love the most is all of the covers are easy to wipe off if you do get something on them.  I was worried about the Ivy showing dirt but it is easy to wipe off.  I would recommend  these bags to any woman out there.  You can change the shell anytime to match your outfit or mood and it is as easy as flipping two flaps and pulling then putting the base down in the new shell and off you go. The straps do with it but you will have to put them on yourself.  That was the hardest part. Here are a couple pictures of the ones I received.
