Rated 4 out of 5 by Suzka34 Can't please everyone
First, I'm sure I'm not alone in saying, I AM VERY PICKY when it comes to my handbag. I like to feel it and try it on before I purchase it, especially at the prices that are common these days, but it was a TSV. I will use a bag until it's fraying before buying something I don't like. For me, I like a hobo, a single shoulder strap, pockets on the outside of the bag, relatively light, leather, and stylish. When I saw this as a today's special value, I took a chance. I bought it in the wine color and it is very pretty. Although not my sole reason to purchase a bag, I have gotten many compliments. Once you add your gear, it is a little heavy. When set down, the bag does fall over but maybe I haven't wore it in yet? The edge is not finished, so as it rubs under your arm, hopefully it won't wear quickly. I love the outside pockets, I love the size, and the style. I wish it did come with a crossbody strap as I am round shouldered and am constantly adjusting any bag.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cali-kat05 Perfect Black Purse!
I had been avoiding buying an all black purse for a while because I thought that I wanted to go with some other "neutral" colors. I am also a big Dooney & Bourke fan, and was trying to find a DB one that I liked. When I saw this bag, I was intrigued enough to order it in black. I like the idea that it was both leather and suede, but that it was also all black. When it first arrived, I was unsure of the shape and if it would work for my everyday needs. After several months of using it, I have to say that I'm so glad that I purchased this purse. It fits over my shoulder very comfortably, holds quite a lot of the stuff that I feel compelled to carry with me (wallet, sunglasses in a hard case, small makeup bag, phone, tablet, and a cloth bag that I use when shopping). Even with all of that, it still has a bit more room. I also love the two pockets that are on the back side. I use it to hold my badge for work, but it's easy access for my phone or keys if needed. The hardware is really very nice, too. It's gold on my bag, and I love the size and sturdiness of the zipper and the lightness of the rings that the strap is attached to. I'm not a lover of fringe in general, but the amount on this purse is perfect.
I would be happy to buy this bag again, and have been wondering if Aimee makes wallets.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jillzie My new favorite bag
OMG! I am in love with this bag! I was very hesitant about purchasing it since it's a little over my price range but I am so glad that I did. I have never been so in love with a bag before. I am one to change my bag out a few times a year and I never want to be without this bag. It's so sharp and classy looking and you can even smell the leather! I love the side and front and back pockets. Perfect for my phone and keys! Thank you Aimee Kestenberg!!!

I have been trying to find that perfect handbag. This was not it. The snake prints looked cheap, and it was like a bottomless pit. Once I put something in it I had to nearly dump the darn thing out to find anything. I also hate the outside pockets, they are worthless and the zippers still need work. Also the leather pieces used as zipper pulls look super cheap.

The quality of the leather and suede used to make this bag is VERY GOOD. Very soft and just a perfect all around bag for anyone of any age that loves the Hobo style. I would buy it for me , a friend or my daughter.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nic67 Poor Quality
Bag seemed smaller in person. Plastic "hardware" and cheap fringe. Leather seemed fake and the odor or "leather" smell was strong like chemicals. Very disappointed. I ordered the black. Also, it would not stand up on its own. Fell flat on the side.
Rated 1 out of 5 by MCReal Side zippers fall down all the time.
I splurged and purchased this handbag, this my first Kestenberg purchase. The side zippers constantly fall down on their own, meaning that they are not functional and you can't utilize them because anything you put in there is going to fall out, thus losing it. This bag is very expensive and you shouldn't have to deal with this type of defective on such an expensive overly-priced item. I'm extremely disappointed. I just wish I would have used the bag before the item within the time limit to return. I definitely would have returned them (the 2 bags-different colors that I bought). First of all, why would anyone design a bag with zippers going against gravity. They DO NOT STAY CLOSED! I guess I'll have to glue them shut! Very upsetting!
Rated 5 out of 5 by LinLou Train Your Bag!!
Bought this bag in black and latte - love it!! I've seen complaints about the bag's shape as it needs to be "trained" to slouch and smile! It really didn't bother me to push it over and down the first week I carried and now it does it automatically like all good leather does. Just work with it and it will look like the pics. Great size - great leather and it does puddle when set down unless you use a purse organizer.
