I waited for over a year to buy this bag because I couldn't make up my mind if I really wanted it or not. I watched every ad, googled people wearing/using it, and followed White Elm on social media. 4 months ago I bought a different bag because it was cheaper, but I was not happy with it. The outside pockets couldn't hold my drink cups. I always looked like a hot mess walking into the office, holding two cups, my keys, my bag, and whatever else wouldn't fit in my bag. So, I finally took the plunge and bought the Gemini Mini. I LOVE IT! I feel so put together when I go to work now! I do wish I would have bought the bigger bag. This one does not hold my laptop (12"x8.5") well. I think I'll probably buy the bigger one later. I was just worried that it would be too big and I wouldn't use it. I still love it though.
When I first received this bag I was afraid I didn’t like the gold hardware and logo. I thought it would be more of a brassy gold instead of the very yellow gold. The contrast of the gold with the black bothered me so much I considered returning it for a different color. I decided to just put my things inside and try it on. I loved it. It’s exactly the size and functionality I have been looking for. When I’m on the go, I can toss in my planner and laptop. When I’m heading to church I can swap those for pull ups, wipes, snacks, and kiddo activities. I love the versatility and the 3 ways to carry the bag. I’m glad I took the plunge to give it a try! 😊
I bought it because I wanted something versatile for work (healthcare) but not so big that I can’t use it for daily. I love the feel of the material, the craftsmanship, and the number of pockets for organising! It’s fabulous!
The bag is nice. I had to return it due to my laptop not fitting in the padded pocket in the bag. The bag is a little heavy without anything in it. Quality of the bag was very nice. I’m getting the Gemini which is the larger bag
I ordered the Gemini mini as I typically switch between a purse for smaller day to day things and a backpack for when I want to bring my crochet projects with me. Now I won’t have to switch bags as it is both a stylish and well made purse and a backpack that is able to carry all my stuff. I really enjoy the black with the aqua lining and I like the pocket with the zipper as when I do the extremely small amount of traveling it’s nice not to have to worry about juggling your luggage and bag. From the design to execution fabulous work and attention to detail. I can’t wait to recommend it to anyone who asks and some who haven’t!!!
