Aimee Kestenberg Pebble Leather Dakota Satchel
You don't always get what you pay for!
After several years of buying leather goods, like shoes and bags, especially bags, I honestly think that any like product is inferior in materials,and assembly. This is also noticeable in clothing.Look at what's happened to Denim & Co. Awful fit, style and design. How long will it take for manufacturers and designers to stop cutting corners while increasing prices. I have seen discount stores with equal to better goods. The cost of S&H has also risen. Is this the price we have to pay for the convenience to shop at home for these kind of goods?
This bag is Beautiful. Got it in Black &Vachetta. Holds a lot. Great price.
Beautiful Leather,great quality.
Shape Fell Flat
First time buyer of this brand . Beautiful leather, soft, color beautiful hardware was nice detailing. Then I took the stuffing out and put my belongings in and when I hung it over my shoulder the shape of the bag slumped flat and was gaping on the ends. I was so disappointed. I think it needs a solid bottom piece inside where the feet are for it to hold the shape. I sent it back and ord r ed a Dooney & Bouke
I expected more from a $250 bag. Quality was poor and it faded very badly. This was returned!
I purchased this purse in the prettiest blue I have ever seen.
Just lovely. The color will brighten the cold snowy days of this
winter. I love Aimee' s colors and great designs, this my second
purse I have of Aimee's.
Aimee needs to put some money into the fabric in her bag interiors. For a bag costing this much, well much to me, the interior should be sturdier. The pockets provide no support for what they hold. If I put my cell phone in the bag it slides-out. Things fall out toward the bottom. The outside is lovely, but i need the inside to be functional.
Loved But Too Heavy
I purchased this bag and loved the print but the bag was way to heavy. I do not carry a lot of items and it was still too heavy. Sorry Amy, back it goes.
I am so exited to have this bag. Unfortunately, I used it for two weeks and the handle come off. I have to look for something to connect the handle back. So disappointed, I wish I can return it back.
I found my bag!
I will never be disorganized again. I have read the other reviews that are not as complementary, but I really like this handbag. It is sophisticated, but not stuffy. I didn't expect it to be framed, but it delivers as a satchel of very rich leather with all the right compartments. I chose the black. I will be following Aimee's line.
I Hate This Bag !!
This is the most uncomfortable bag I ever had! It is so heavy when it has your stuff in it, the middle does not stay closed, the long strap is uncomfortable. It is only pretty when it is empty but you cannot see the styling when it is filled. I would send it back but I used it for two weeks before I gave up on it !
I bought this purse because of all the space and pockets it had in it. When I got it I was in love with the color. I got it out of the box and the purse was so heavy that I couldn't keep it. I tried it I put my stuff inside just to see. OMG I used it one day and my shoulder was hurting worse then normal. So, I sent it back. The gold parts makes it heavy I believe. If she would make one without all that. It would be a purse I would carry. I gave it two stars for the color.
I thought this was a no brainer!
I didn't want to believe the other reviews about the zippered compartment gapping in a strange way. I figured something else had to be the issue. So since I loved the silhouette, and I must say loved the bag when it got here!, I knew I had to order it and see for myself. Well carrying with the small straps works great. No issues. Then on the other hand using the long strap...there was the gapping that everyone is talking about. you can see the lining below etc. I also don't like that the pockets that most purses have for your cell, pens, zippered small pocket etc is in the middle section of the bag which only has a snap at the top. Not much security there. Too Bad...the lining was changed in this one at least that is a plus...no longer the cheesy cheap lining that was there before, but the rest of the purse style would have been great. I am thinking of giving up on Aimee at this point. Too much shipping costs lost for shipping now my third purse back.
