"As Is" B. Makowsky Zip Top Shoulder Bag
I'm glad I took a chance on this, after reading the bad reviews. I ordered the white, after scouring QVC for a summer white bag. It's gorgeous, soft, has tons of room. I'm not experiencing the tipping forward, as the other reviews state, probably because all I keep in my purse (any purse for that matter) is my wallet, phone, snacks, and chapstick. I put my wallet (studded B. Mak) in the middle where the closure is magnetic, and my phone in the outer magnetic pocket. The chain detail really sets this bag apart, from a sea of boring, ugly leather-strapped bags. I love everything about it, but the 4 star rating was for the "as-is" condition...there was a TINY spot of something light tan, on the back of the bag. Being white, I'm sure if it was previously owned, its not as bright white as it should be. But, it still looks brand new and gorgeous! I have purchased plenty of "as-is" items from QVC, from accessories to jewelry, and this is probably the only thing I've ever received, slightly flawed. Still, its 100 bucks less than the non as-is condition of the same bag! Compromise!
I agree with the above review...
I really love this bag, the leather, the color ( I got the spice ) but it really tilts forward when you wear it. It might really bug some people. I'm going to try a different wallet to see if that helps. Not sure if I'm going to keep it for that reason, but otherwise it's a beautiful bag. I hope Bruce can re-design this with a solid leather strap ( instead of the chain) secured on the sides and perhaps that would help.
This is a great feeling bag & the leather feels sooo soft...but the location of strap causes this bag to tilt, lean....the bag has great organizational abilities but it just seems like it's going to flip over. I love the orange and snake versions but just couldn't get it to work for me.
