Tayden Sunburst Boston Handbag Review

Powered by Mom Blog shares a Review of the Tayden Sunburst Boston Handbag from Nicole Lee

Love handbags? You definitely want to check out our review of the Tayden Sunburst Boston Handbag from Nicole Lee!

Spring has started to show itself for most of it not all of us and with spring comes, sun (sometimes) and flowers blooming. When I think of spring I always think of daffodils, tulips and other flowers but mostly the first two. Not sure why but the blooming yellows and orange flowers are what I think of first, the colors bursting into bloom. So how appropriate that we received a yellow Tayden Sunburst Boston Handbag from Nicole Lee!

Tayden Sunburst Boston Handbag

Now I have to admit that my first instinct would not be to select a yellow handbag. I tend to be kind of boring that way always choosing black, brown, once in a while white and the few times I was bold I selected red and purple two of my favorite colors. So when I was checking out this beautiful  Tayden Sunburst Boston handbag I did keep eyeing the black and the white ones, I was even tempted by the natural colored one.


The yellow one was not on my radar but the folks at Nicole Lee wanted to go with a spring theme and let’s face it yellow is very much a spring color! I have to say I am glad they “forced” me to select a yellow handbag as it was a delight to open the box and pull out the lovely bag!

It leans towards being more of a mustard yellow color, so not the super bright canary yellow in my opinion. It’s very room inside, I couldn’t even fill it up with my every day items that I carry around in my handbag. I like the light lining so it’s easy to spot anything inside and that it has a zippered pocket on the inside along with a few pouches. I hate it when handbags don’t have a zippered pocked on the inside. I could easily fit some snacks in here and a small bottle of water which is nice, yet the handbag does not feel like it’s bulky or too big.

One of the other reasons I selected this handbag is that it also has a detachable, longer strap as some days I don’t like to have to use just the shorter shoulder straps. It could easily be carried as a cross body since the longer strap is adjustable and can accommodate making it a cross body. I like having those options! The only minor issue is that my longer strap, the hook on the one side isn’t “springing” into the closed position. I’m not worried about this as I’m quite confident the folks at Nicole Lee was fix this problem one way or another.

The handbag feels like soft leather, it’s not a stiff handbag and it has the needed zippered pocket in the back of the bag. This is a must for me as this is where I like to keep my keys and my phone. The shoulder straps are a nice two tone with white on one side and gold on the other, I love that as I do love gold accents. The Tayden Sunburst Boston handbag in yellow is definitely a nice spring addition to brighten up your day and your outfit!

I’ve now learned that yellow was more versatile than I originally thought, probably because I never buy it. I can use it like I use gold accents, it goes well with greens, browns, beiges/taupes, white and more. For black outfits I found it depended on the outfit as I don’t want to have the bumblee bee look.

Overall I like the size of the handbag, as mentioned it’s roomy but not bulky, the removable/adjustable longer strap gives me options, it’s gorgeous and so decorative that it will add to any outfit. I’m so happy with this handbag that I’m seriously considering getting the white or the black one or both. It makes for a fabulous every day bag but also for going out in the evening or any occasion where your dressed up, just take off the longer strap and it’s an excellent, larger handbag. I can’t make do with those teeny evening bags/clutches so for me this is a perfect size!

So yes I love the Tayden Sunburst Boston Handbag in yellow and I’m aiming to get the other colors too 🙂

  2. I LOVE this purse!!! So beautiful, perfect for Easter Sunday and Spring in general.

  3. Kristy Bodle says:

    It looks like it has a lot of room. Leather is a good thing I would not think it wold rip really easy like my other brand purses do. They do not wear very well,

  4. Lily Kwan says:

    This handbag looks very nice. Thanks for sharing!

  5. DG Middendorf says:

    I love this handbag. In fact I’ve just discovered these bags and now I’m going to put in a birthday request for one if I don’t get one for myself sooner. The yellow is my favorite too.

  6. Alicia Morris says:

    I love that it’s roomy and a changeable strap and love the color

    Thanks so much for your review, I have been interested in this and looks like you have taken care of the research for me. Your sharing has enlighted me on this product.

    • Karen Propes says:

      So sorry, I copied my post and it copied from the previous post. I just wanted to say I love this bag, I used to be the plain ole 1 color purse person. I have branched out and showed my style thru a fabulous handbag.

  10. I love this bag so cute can I have it

    I love Nicole Lee Handbags! This one is so pretty! Thank you for your review!

  14. I so lean towards neutrals BUT I just bought an inexpensive red purse to see how I like it and I love it so I would definately love a yellow one So bright and cheery for the warm weather and perfect for spring Thank you for the opportunity

  15. Lisa Konieczke says:

    Like you, I usually tend to lean toward the more neutral colors, browns and blacks. Lately, I’m wanting to change it up a bit. I just got one bag with like 4 different colors. I’m trying to not be so boring. I am pretty intrigued with this bag. I do like the yellow, its different. I like the lining being a lite color too. I always have a hard time finding my phone in my bag because its always so dark in there. I think it will be easier to locate my dark items in a light colored bag. I like this bag. Now I want one! I like the pretty stones. This bag does scream Spring and I’m ready for it. Snow finally just all melted. Winter lasted way too long here this year.

  16. Megan Swinney says:

    I would love to win this!! So stinking pretty!

  17. Darlene Carbajal says:

    That’s a very pretty bag. It will be a nice gift to give someone. 🙂

  18. Cheryl Rahkonen says:

    This is a beautiful bag and I do love the yellow. I love the feel of the soft leather handbags. I also always pick black or brown but recently I have been wanting to branch out and try bright colored bags. Well, this Nicole Lee bag would certainly fit that description. I love it.

  19. shirley mills says:

    Really love it

  20. Cassandra M says:

    Those sunburst/flower gem accents add just the right amount of quirky, eye catching detail that I love in purses!

  21. Marcy Strahan says:

    I love this handbag because I’ve been searching for a sunny bright bag for spring & saw this & almost fainted!

  22. Love this bag, it’s so Spring. When I saw all I could think is how much my daughter would love this bag, she is in with the color yellow now. I love Nicole Lee Bags anyway.

  23. Kristy Franks says:

    Love The Bag And Love The Review I Really Love How This Bag Looks And It Makes You Want To Smile

  24. Sue Hull says:

    I also love Daffadils, we used to have them in our backyard when I was a kid. I think of spring when I see daffodils and poppies. When I saw this bag I wasn’t too sure about entering the giveaway b/c the only place a canary yellow should be on is a canary. LOL! Now that I know it’s more of a mustard color I’m glad I entered it. I love the Nicole Lee material on the inside and how much room it has. This was a great review, so thank you 🙂

  25. carmen miller says:

    I really like this bag cause it has a detachable strap. Am liking the color and design.

  26. valerie guerrero says:

    this is such a beautiful purse with a lot of space

  27. Deanna Tate says:

    Would love to have one of these bags! They are so adorable. Love the review!

  28. Sasha Cory says:

    Unique Satchels are my favorite. I don’t like having the same old boring bag as everyone else.

  29. gloria patterson says:

    will try this again short and sweet this time like the way you descripted the purse

  30. my favorite part of the bag is the jewels.

  31. Debi Rollman says:

    Love this purse !!!

  32. i love the fact that it can be carried different ways. The color and design is super fun for the spring and summer months. THANKS!

  33. I also tend to choose more neutral(AKA boring) colors when it comes to handbags. Yellow would not have been my first choice either but I was happy to read that it was more a mustard yellow. I do love that color. My only concern would be the crystals/rhinestones falling off.

  34. i love the fact that it can be carried different ways. not fond of the colors but if i win i know of 2 20 something girls that will fight over it

  35. Wendy Pence says:

    Wow, I’ve not heard of this designer before. I gotta check out these bags! I love this particular bag, such a pretty color yellow. Very appealing after the dreary, icy winter we’ve all had. :0)

  36. sheri anderson says:

    Totally love this bag, and yellow is one of my favorite colors, oh and great review!!

  37. This bag is gorgeous!! I love Nicole Lee bags. They are always so fabulous. And I love the bright color for spring! I always feel boring carrying a black bag.

  38. Diane Elizabeth says:

    I always mean to buy a new bag with some color, and end up with black in fall and winter, or off white in spring and summer. So, I mean well, but i never quite pull it off lol. Thanks for clarifying the color is more of a mustard yellow. That’s what I thought, but it’s good to know for sure. I like the detachable strap, thanks for pointing that out as well.

  39. Cindy R Moore says:

    I love handbags! I tend to go for purples but I’ve noticed this last year I’ve been choosing bright cheery colors like green and orange over purple. I really like the look of this yellow bag! I would definitely love to have one!

  40. Terri S. says:

    With Spring finally here, I like to use bright colors to accessorize. This bag is so pretty and has so many features that I like (can use as a cross body bag, has zippered inner pocket and zippered outside pocket on back).

  41. Brianna Ketchum says:

    Love it so cute!!

  42. I normally don’t like yellow anything but I totally love this handbag!!!! The details in it are so pretty!~! This is definitely a Spring purse that I hope will be in my collection!!!

  43. Megan Cromes says:

    i love the purse in this contest!color is cute! ty 😉

  44. Katherine McPherson says:

    I wouldn’t necessarily say that I’m a handbag fanatic but I do love cute ones that fit the season. This one does that!

  45. Dana Rodriguez says:

    I have never owned a bright colored bag but this one is adorable!I love all the detail and it looks “Spring” to me!

  46. Linda Meyers-Gabbard says:

    I love tjis Nicole Lee bag. It is colorful and roomy without being to big. I have a Nicole Lee bag from a coupke years ago and I still love it. I love all her bags n

  47. Deborah Caudill says:

    I love this bag. I have bought brightly colored bags over the years, but usually always carried a black leather bag all year long. I had straw bags, clutches and even odd shaped bas. I will use the Sunburst bright yellow bag if I won it because it is truly a beautiful bag.

  48. Jen Rodrigues says:

    This bag is not only gorgeous but it looks like it has plenty of room. I would love to own a bag like this. Perfect timing for spring and summer. Thanks for sharing this!!

  49. alison gibb says:

    I am a handbag fanatic! I, too, usually go for standard colors but it nice to find a bag in a color that you like!

  50. Sandy McFadden says:

    Not sure about the yellow but I think it might compliment the right outfit. And pictures to me sometimes don’t do an item justice.

  51. Georgia Beckman says:

    Purses are a luxury item for me. And I ALWAYS go bold, lol.

  52. emma Carrillo says:

    This bag is beautiful love everything about it!!! The color just makes me wanting to be already summer. But definitely would take it outside this spring to let other people be jealous about mmy super super lovely bag!

  53. Karen Beck says:

    I agree that the yellow is very pretty and eye-catching. Looks a really good quality bag and very versatile with the longer strap or shorter handle options. So cute!

  54. Deanna Adkins says:

    I Love the color and the way it is decorated.

  55. Wendy Hodges says:

    I not a yellow purse fan but the details on this one make it super cute!

  56. Michelle Castagne says:

    I never thought to much of a colored bag before but this one is very cute.

  57. Sally Guenterberg says:

    Love leather so it is great to hear this felt like leather. And the bling is just right; not too much. Yes, yellow can be versatile. just bought two pair of shoes in yellow

  58. I too am not a yellow handbag kind of person. I do prefer black or brown, simply because you can use it with anything then. Recently I did buy a purple purse and have gotten compliments on it. Now I’m hoping to venture out a tad more if I would win this handbag 🙂 I like that you say it’s roomy but not so roomy you’d lose things in it, lol Thank you for the review!

  59. Judy Cox says:

    Makes me wish Spring would hurry up and get here!!! That would look very chic with a nice outfit for Easter!!

  60. sally deeser says:

    I love this beautiful bright handbag! Perfect for Spring and Summer!

  61. Vlad & Barkly's Dee says:

    Doesn’t this bag make you feel like you’re basking in the sun on some beach in the summer? It does me anyway.

  62. Marti Tabora says:

    I absolutely love this bag. I never thought of a yellow handbag being suitable for me, but I would love this one.

  63. Dorothy Teel says:

    I love this yellow bag, and I am glad that Nicole Lee kinda pushed you into picking it, it is very pretty and unusual, not one you would see everyone else carrying. THank you for the review, I like the pocket on the side and the beautiful design on the front,

  64. Pam Lane says:

    Love the fab prizes !

  65. This is a gorgeous handbag, I have visited the Nicole Lee website and they have a great selection of bags. Thank you for sharing this review.

  66. What a fun bag to carry for the Spring & Summer…love all the jewels!

  67. Gale McCarron says:

    Love how fashionable all their products are, and I also like the variety of styles. Very nice!

  68. Marti Smith says:

    I really haven’t cared for the color yellow to much but this is an awesome looking purse. Looks very roomy inside and out and not to bulky!

  69. See, I’m like you, I just don’t like the small clutches! I prefer a more medium style sized handbag that is versatile! Shoulder or handbag! Can’t resist the bright beautiful yellow either, so springy!

  70. I love how it is a nice spring/summer color and the awesome detail work on it. Thank you

  71. Sharon Siqueiros says:

  79. Lisa Brown says:

  80. I dont usually go for yellow but this is a gorgeous handbag. It wouldnt have been my go to at all. I do like the idea of the longer strap and the fact that it’s soft leather. Very bold piece.

  81. Holly Thomas says:

    I usually would not go for yellow but this is gorgeous!

  82. Cute bag and good to hear the yellow isn’t as bright as it looks in pictures; yellow can be a bit like marmite for some. Thanks for the review!

  83. Christie Anderson says:

    Love her bags. My favorite is the Claudette Studded Doctor bag! Yellow is one of my favorite colors, so this bag realllllllly speaks to me 😀

  84. I have to have purses with long straps. I don’t like short ones that make me tote the purse.

  85. love your purses and love this giveaway. thanks

  86. Christy Peeples DuBois says:

    This is such a cute bag. I have had a yellow hand bag before and found it did go with most everything as you said. I have a personal relationship with my handbags is as best I can describe it. I, like you, cannot do the small clutch or would not feel comfortable. I do like your bag and am going to check these out.

  87. I love this bag so spring like~and I am not so much into hand bags as I use to be.
    BUT~definitely do like this one.

  88. Awesome review, the bag is gorgeous Love the yellow and I would Love this don’t have a spring bag.

  89. Lynda Cook says:

    Great review, I like the colour so summer a ray of sunshine

  90. Tamra Phelps says:

    I like it. It’s kind of bedazzled, a word which shows I watched too much late night infomercial tv in the 90s, I guess, but you know what I mean!

  91. Paula Morgan says:

    I have to agree with you, that I wouldn’t normally go with a yellow handbag…but a “mustard yellow” O could go with…it’s not so much of an “in your face” kind of yellow. The style, design and size of this bag is perfect for me as an everyday or dress up bag.

  92. michelle oakley warner says:

    I really love that the purse is bright and vibrant, I love bright purses, I love this review thank you so much for sharing such a cool purse with us. I think the rhinestones are really well placed on this bag and again I really love the color. you can wear a ton of different things with this. thank you for sharing this wonderful company and site and I love pretty much all of the different designs they have in stock. very cool

  93. I normally buy Michael Kors but this handbag is like sunshine on a cloudy day!

  94. jasmine burdett says:

    i love the bag and i like that you can wear it across your body great review

  95. I like this bag, I don’t normally buy yellow but I think it would be cute for spring. Also, I like the roominess in it, I need that!

  96. Kari Wagoner says:

    I love this bag its beautiful

  97. I used to have a pretty good variety of bags..I guess the past couple years have been hectic so I ended up packing my things in a tote for hospital visits etc. It just made it alot simpler. Time to get back into the” spring” of things!

  98. this is a real nice review and now i know more about this brand..

  99. Laurie Nykaza says:

    This beautiful handbag is so colorful and stylish as well. I would love this for summer with all my light color clothing it would go well.

  100. leslie Ross says:

    I am with you on the yellow thing but this one is really cute

  101. InezbyDesign says:

    I love the yellow bag, it’s perfect for spring. And you are right, a zip pocket in back is an absolute must.

  102. Martha Waugh says:

    This bag is gorgeous. I really like the color. It’s so vibrant.

  103. Deanna mancinideanna mancini says:

    So spring appropriate 🙂

  104. I think you did an awesome job on the review. I also like the fact that it feels like soft leather…Keep up the good work
