Sassy stash... Love or loathe?




Note - this is not a sponsored post, I was not paid to write It. I am merely curious Into what you guys think of this innovative product. 


"The Sassy Stash Sienna is made of a romantic and elegant Italian-inspired lace to effortlessly stash your phone, card, mirror, and makeup. The signature silicone grippers ensure that your valuables are held in place and let's you keep you hands free."



So I received an email from Sassy Stash and they sent me this accessory. I had noooo Idea what to expect but here goes.

The accessory is a lace carrier that is supposed to wrap around your leg. The Idea Is that instead of carrying a clutch bag - you wear this accessory and store your phone, keys, lipstick etc in it. I can see the attractiveness of this aspect of the product. However it must be noted that you couldn't exactly wear it with a body con number, you would have to wear it with a skater/floaty style.

The accessory comes in black (which Is what I received), pink and lilac. All of the accessories have a nude underlay to disguise the product. I think the aim of the sassy stash is to appear a bit like a garter? But with a more practical use. In that sense I could see it being crazily useful for brides maids/bride (although It would be a bit hard to get to the sassy stash if you were wearing a wedding dress).

The band is elasticated and a sort of 'velcroesque' fastening system. I have to say the accessory just fits me and I'm a size 10, and If you have fairly skinny legs as well I could see it being quite... awkward.

I'm not 100% convinced by this product. I can SEE the practicalities and I do think it is an innovative idea. However there are certain flaws with it too.

I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK! I absolutely love the amount of comments I received on my 'FLUFF' post, I reply to all my comments and they make my day. Would you buy this product for yourself/as a present? Let me know!

  1. I quite like this idea, it'd help me out a lot at gigs because I always worry about the safety of my personal items, but it's a bit annoying how it's only one size. My legs are a size 12/14, so I'd have no hope! ♥

  3. I sort of do this already whenever I wear Spanx under a dress and don't want to carry a purse around, so I do like this idea! I might look into it.

  5. I really like the idea. I have a hen do coming up in January that will require a costume and therefore no bag. This could come in handy for that! Also I'd feel a bit like a bad ass assassin, which is one of my goals in life. But you don't seem convinced, so I'm not sure I should try it! Hmmm, will need to look out for something similar though, I think!

  6. I think it's a good idea, but I agree. I also have fairly thin legs, I wouldn't want the whole thing slipping off because it was too big!

    1. Yeah exactly my point! Saying that though, there is a certain amount of lee way for sizing but it just isn't good for everyone.. :/

  7. Looks like a great concept! But by the sounds of it, they just need to figure out the finer details of the product! :)
