Urban Originals Handbag Review

I’m so nosy and love seeing other people do ‘What’s in my Handbag’ posts and videos so I thought I’d show you mine, so to speak! Here’s my Urban Originals Handbag Review.

Urban Originals Handbag Review

I’ve been using the Urban Originals True Sunrise bag in Black and I love it.

Urban Originals Handbag Review - Vegan Leather Handbag - Love from Mim

The True Sunrise Urban Originals Handbag

It’s a Vegan leather handbag and despite being very compact, it is so roomy – which is handy as I have two kids! As well as being my handbag, it also doubles up as a mini changing bag when I’m out with my baby.

It comes in it’s own dust bag to keep it in mint condition.

Bag inside the dust bag

The bag has 3 separated compartments with zippers and a removable strap, adjustable up to 52cm.

The bag measures 18 cm x 26 cm x 12 cm.

So, what’s in my handbag?

Urban Originals Handbag Review - Love from Mim - Vegan Leather Handbag

This bag fits in a lot! I do try and keep things to a minimum though rather than carry around clutter.

Urban Originals Handbag Review - Love from Mim

Inside is:

The nappy wallet is awesome as it’s so compact. It has space for enough baby wipes for the day, a change mat and a couple of nappies.

Urban Originals offer a range of gorgeous, PETA approved luxury vegan handbags that are versatile, timelessly stylish and are really affordable too.

Urban Originals Handbag Review - Love from Mim - Vegan Leather Handbags

Urban Originals care deeply about the world we live in and have worked hard to make Urban Originals handbags as environmentally and ethically responsible as possible. They use the finest quality vegan leathers, work to very low chemical requirements and even have the PETA stamp of approval!

    Looks great – and my current bag is tired and on its last drooping straps

  4. Melissa Edwards
    25th September 2016 / 7:14 pm

    Oh how I would love a new handbag that is not falling apart like mine! To have room to put all the essentials would be so fine!

  5. Kelly Ryan
    25th September 2016 / 6:12 pm

    Would be a perfect alternative to the nappy bag I have been carrying around for 2 years!

    I LOVE the idea of a vegan/PETA approved which is unheard of in any womens accessories. Using organic/ natural products for my family is important to me PLUS, this stylish bag will hold all my bits and bobs when leaving the house the house besides, I might actually find things with the organisation of the bag LOL Thumbs up Urban Originals for the concept.

    25th September 2016 / 1:06 pm

    It’s stylish and practical at the same time!

  12. Jenny Watson
    25th September 2016 / 12:45 pm

    I have lot of compact bags, and lots of enormous bags – but no bag that is compact with tons of room in it. This looks ideal.

  13. Joanna Harrison
    25th September 2016 / 7:09 am

    With two kids always requiring waters and snacks whenever we leave the house, I need a large bag to house everything. I’d love this stylish bag which would meet all the practical needs as well as being really stylish!

  14. Kelly Arnold
    25th September 2016 / 6:34 am

    Love the zippered compartments! The ideal solution to curious toddlers, who love to delve into my current bucket bag and wreak havoc with the contents!
    Plenty of sneaky compartments to hide the irresistible (and dangerous!) red lipstick, my phone with holds irreplaceable photos (that all to often get accidentally deleted!), and the precious kiddie bribes I desperately need to get through the dreaded grocery shop!

  15. Michelle
    24th September 2016 / 11:07 pm

    I love the look of this lovely bag

  16. Charlotte S

    As a bag addict and vegetarian, it pains me to see all the beauties I can’t justify… I would adore some arm candy that is cruelty free!

  17. Vanda B
    24th September 2016 / 9:52 pm

    This bag is not only stylish, but the perfect size for nipping out of the house with a few essentials without being weighed down. Would love to win it.

  18. Eva Kiraly
    24th September 2016 / 8:52 pm

    I can see this gorgeous bag on my shoulder carrying everything I need, but it’s not just a tool, its fashion to me! :)

    This bag would be perfect for my teenage daughter who recently commenced a vegetarian diet and is looking for other ways to minimise animal deaths

  20. Faye
    24th September 2016 / 5:24 pm

    This gorgeous bag has lots of compartments – places I can HIDE things from little fingers, especially MY SECRET chocolate supply. Now YOU are aware of my vice, please don’t tell my kids!

  21. Chloe
    24th September 2016 / 5:12 pm

    My 10th vegan birthday is coming up, this December I’ll have been living the cruelty free lifestyle for a decade – hard to believe! It’s changed my life in countless ways, from my diet to my wardrobe and I’d love to celebrate 10 healthy and happy years with this beautiful Urban Originals handbag. Thanks for the chance, Mim! Fingers crossed :)

  22. Mandy
    24th September 2016 / 3:28 pm

    Practical AND stylish! I love having compartments for organisation. If only I could remember which compartment I put my keys in!

  23. Mikaela C
    24th September 2016 / 1:23 pm

    Forget the cruelty with vegan leather,
    roomy but as light as a feather,
    a handbag and change bag in one,
    makes this Urban Originals bag twice as fun!

    Firstly, what a lovely looking bag!! My last five handbags have all been from op shops and with someone’s birthday coming up (maybe mine!), this would be a lovely treat!! I wouldn’t have to disinfectant it before use like all my other bags :) Thank you so much!!

  34. Mel Ellis
    22nd September 2016 / 8:59 pm

    The perfect out and about bag for mums.
    I find my current nappy bag is getting to large for my kids who are just a little bit older now.
    This looks like a trendy, cute but still practical alternative.

  44. Samara McRae
    20th September 2016 / 7:33 am

    I would like to win to feel a bit like the old me again. I love my baby boy more than anything, but carting around a huge baby bag with everything possible inside is a pain. This bag would still fit in bubs essentials, but would make me feel a bit stylish and sexy again :-)

  45. Laura Scriven
    19th September 2016 / 9:07 pm

    I worked out all Winter time,
    And now I feel divine!

    So, I’m a mum but I don’t necessarily want my handbag to yell “human birth giver and on demand milk bar”. So having this beautiful Urban Originals true sunrise bag in blue (because blue is my absolute favourite) wouldn’t give me away as a mum though the perpetual “mum ponytail” might. I’d love this bit of luxury to hold all the mundane items a handbag holds. Thanks for the chance, Mim!

    Feeling a little nostalgic!
    Urban Originals opened the door to online retail for me in my late teens (I am now 25) and I will never forget waking up one morning after a dream that included something about knock-off accessories haha… Yeah the tags in my dream all said ‘Urban Un-originals’. Haha! good work brain!
    I regularly de-clutter and give away items from my wardrobe and I no longer have one of these damn fine quality bags to enjoy for myself :( I would be over-the-moon-grateful to receive one of the lil fellas if you chose me :) although maybe someone who hasn’t yet owned a piece by urban originals would benefit more?
    Sorry for the novel lol ;)

  57. Kristina S
    15th September 2016 / 8:47 pm

    Perfect colour, style and size for everyday. I love it

  58. Karla Oleinikoff
    14th September 2016 / 3:11 pm

    I carry way too much stuff in my bag (I found a fork once!). This would make me cut down on the clutter, but still let me carry around all the essentials (which does not include a fork), my bag would stop weighing a tonne, and my back and shoulder would thank me for it.

  59. Amanda
    13th September 2016 / 5:34 pm

    Maybe I don’t look hard enough but I have difficulty, finding a bag with enough compartments to carry all my necessities, and as I don’t want to compromise on style, it has been quite a while since I have found the perfect bag like this for me!

  60. Kasey Evans
    13th September 2016 / 4:15 pm

    This gorgeous bag If it were mine,
    No longer will I ever winge & whine,
    About not having enough room,
    Getting me down and so gloom,
    It would make day is very shine!

  61. 13th September 2016 / 2:19 pm

    What a beautiful bag Mim! These smaller bags are so on-trend this season. I love this label and the colours they are available in.
    Your bag is so tidy inside. Mine is full of receipts and buttons, jewellery and toothpicks – you name it! I must clean it out…
    Thanks for linking with the Aussie Giveaway Linkup. :D

  62. 13th September 2016 / 9:10 am

    A little urban style
    to make a girl smile,
    clever and smart,
    a big bag with heart.

    I’ve had the same handbag for years, and while I love it and it’s served me well, it’s beginning to get a bit tatty.
    It’s the perfect size to keep me organised with everything I need to have on hand, while also looking absolutely beautiful.

  65. Trenda Tillson
    11th September 2016 / 12:30 pm

    A coworker I work with made me her specialty indian rice and butter chicken when she heard my partner was diagnosed with a gbm who4. She has always been there for me. She is now expecting a baby girl. I’d love to share a little urban originals with her.

  67. Becky Palmer
    11th September 2016 / 12:53 am

    I would love to take it on my cruise to Fiji in November. It would fit all my essential belongings in with room to spare!

    9th September 2016 / 11:07 pm

    I have terrible baby brain! I can’t remember a thing. I ordered a cheese sandwich with salt yesterday, I sit in the back seat of the car and I accidentally forgot my mother’s birthday (sorry mum!). I’d love to win this well organised bag so I don’t leave the house without something essential, it’s compact and looks comfy to carry, and vegan, yay!

  72. cleo
