Aimee Kestenberg Leather Aimee Tote with Stud Detail
Just received and first day of use the front push lock broke. This bag is not meant for carrying items back and forth to work, leather too soft and becomes mishapen under stress. I ride the subways and didnt make it past first commute.
Best Bag Ever
I am a shoes and bags girl - I have paid big bucks for some of my bags (500 ) and as much as I like them I had yet to find a bag that really did it all - until now! The combo of fashion and function is unmatched. I purchased the green because I was looking for this color but I am going back for black and maybe even the neutral shade. The bag fits my iPad or 14 inch computer and I feel safe because of the padding on the interior pocket. I can then use the front pocket for my "purse" and the back pocket for work files or other paperwork - it all fits and looks great while doing it! I don't have to carry 2 bags to the office anymore and when I am not working I remove the computer and files and it isn't too big to take out to dinner. It is a big bag but doesn't look like a suitcase. Seriously -perfect bag!
Very nice bag, but just not the shade of beige I was looking for...just sent back for return. However, appeared to be of sturdy and excellent quality.
This bag is my first Aimee bag and most likely won't be my last. The quality of the leather is phenom. It's a light weight bag. A lot of my quality bags are so heavy to carry. This is quite roomy for a big bag girl like myself. It's a perfect lady like bag, but with an edge to it. I got the black and would like the almond as well. Gorgeous bag to add to my collection. Aimee is the real deal.
VERY LARGE BAG
Nice leather, nice pockets but it IS VERY LARGE! For a smaller person, 5'2", I like a larger bag but this one is huge.
I bought this bag in jade, and it's a knockout. Beautiful leather, gorgeous color, great organization. Ladylike, but the studs give it just a little edge. This one is different and special. I'm so glad I bought it!
THE ALMOND!!!! LOVE!!!
I was afraid of ordering the Almond. It looks a bit yellowy on line. But it is a true Almond. A creamy beautiful shade and the leather is so soft. I'm not happy with the lining, but I didn't buy it for the lining! Although for 250.00 one would think they could splurge a little on the fabric! But the rest of the bag is gorgeous and I am in LOVE!!! This is my first Aimee, I am sure I will be back!
3rd Aimee bag and loving the jade in this. Nice and light. Just what I was looking for :)
nice bag in black
I ordered this in black. The bright colors are interesting to me, but I can't go there. The black leather looks nice and the bag has the appearance of good quality. The lining is the same as the other AK bag I ordered, not what I would hope for, a little too much like plastic for the quality of the rest of the bag. I like the size, the zipper expansion, the short straps and the chain and studs. I think I would like the shoulder strap to have been more adjustable/longer so I could cross body, I am expecting to load this up and would like the option. But for the price, this is a nice bag and I will be comfortable loading it up for work and using it day to day with the wear and tear it will take, knowing I didn't pay an arm and a leg but it still looks good.
Returning same day as received
I was really disappointed when I received this tote. The shape itself was just a bit too large, the metals looked cheap and the styling implied the piece to be a kind of utilitarian tool rather than a modern stylish accessory. The shade of jade was the reason I decided to purchase. Unfortunately that was the most disappointing component. From far away the color looks fantastic but up close the leather appeared a bit cheap.
I liked the idea of purchasing from a newer designer & liked Aimee's presentation. I was just so bummed when I viewed this bag in person. I do hope others did enjoy their own Aimee Kestenberg bags.
