B. Makowsky Vintage Leather Convertible Flap Hobo with Chain Strap
My FAV bag!!!
Oh how I love this bag!!!! I've bought bags before where I had to think really hard if I really liked them..... not this one! I loved it the minute I took it out of the box. I've been carrying it now for 3 weeks. I bought the brown one..... I'm a neutral kind of girl and absolutely love it! Reminds me of that distressed, bomber jacket look. I just love how it lays against my body! Now, I want the black one bad! Just waiting for easy pay..... and hopefully for it to come off waitlist!!!
Beautiful color (Leaf) and it really isn't heavy to me. I have a LOT of bags and this is not one of the heavier ones even though it is VERY large. My favorite thing about the bag is all the pockets!!! I keep my keys in one side pocket, my phone in the other and my ID in the back one. I have not had to dig around for anything not even once since I got it. That is saying a lot since I am know for losing things in my huge handbags. My new go to bag! I did put the all weather protectant on it because even the slightest bit of water left a mark. Otherwise, perfect!
Finally in love
I love this bag. I waited a while for this bag to go on easy pay before I ordered it...6 months. I originally ordered the brown, but it did not give me the pop of color I wanted. The brown is more of a light coco brown. I exchanged the brown for the rust. I was concerened the rust would be more orange or red...hard to tell on the tv screen. It was the right terra-cotta color! Extra bonus it matches a pair of my boots! Great bag! Will get more colors!
Not My Favorite
I am a Dooney girl. This bag is heavy because of the chain. Sending it back ... Sigh
THIS LEATHER HITS THE MARK! VROOM VROOM!
Like the previous reviewer, I have *NO* idea what the negative reviewers are talking about. This bag is absolutely STUNNING!
I bought the brown and black. I love wearing the black with my jeans and the brown with an all-black ensemble to break it up. I travel the world and this bag is perfect for long and short distances. Everything I need, including my iPad, fits safely inside and I love the cell phone pocket on the bag. Everything is easily accessible.
I'm 5'3 and carry this bag only as a crossbody. Yes, it's a big bag, but that's exactly how it was represented and that's exactly why I love it. The vintage brown is absolutely gorgeous and, Bruce, I hope you keep this bag coming.
How about a distressed red or distressed black? LOVE!
Honestly, I don't know what a lot of these reviewers are talking about! I love this bag. I was lucky enough to get it in ultramarine. Beautiful, beautiful handbag. I get so many complements when I wear this, everyone asks where in the world I found it, and of course, I say QVC! I love all of the pockets in this bag. The slip pocket in the back on the exterior is perfect for my phone, and the external zip pockets are perfect for my keys and whatever lipstick or lipgloss I'm wearing for the day. I love that I can fit my cosmetic bag, wallet, planner, iPad, and it doesn't look overstuffed like a lot of my bags do with all of my stuff in them! This bag is fantastic, don't let the negative reviews sway you. I love it and wear it all the time. I've been using this bag for several weeks, so this isn't a review right after I bought it. I've worn in the bag and it's completely functional.
I am so happy with this bag! The leather is beautiful - very soft and the vintage "treatment" gives it an almost sueded feel with a bit of a sheen. I got the black and yes, in some lights it could pass for a very dark charcoal. (The black is very rock n roll chic!)
This is a big bag, but not too big!! I am only 5' tall and it still works on me. I was worried the drop on the chain handle was going to be too small but since the leather is so soft, the bag drapes in all the right places and the chain handle is long enough. Love this bag!!!
I got this purse about a week ago. I really liked it, but the silver chain started peeling. I didn't know it had a silver type coating on the chain. It just started to flake off where it hooks to the purse. I am returning it. I have several B. Makowsky purses and I love them. I may get others but I don't need the silver coming off. It looked dull where it peeled off.
Love this bag
I am a bag snob I own some very high end bags and I would rate these bags right up there with them. I bought the rust and brown, the more you carry them the softer the leather gets and the vintage look of them is perfect, I get more compliments on these bags than I do on my designer bags.
Not at all impressed with this Vintage Leather
This bag is very disappointing to me. I couldn't believe how large this bag was hanging on me. I love the style but it is so huge it looks like a suitcase. I got the black and the "vintage" just looks faded charcoal. Nothing special at all. Tig's vintage leather is much better although not as soft. This just was a big disappointment for me.
LIKE IT DONT LOVE IT
A BIT HEAVY FOR A BAG. NICE LEATHER. SOFT LEATHER. LOVE OVER THE BODY STRAP
Not that great
Everytime I buy a B Makowsky bag, I have sent it back.I also returned this one.Its not Vintage leather at all. I bought the black.I have extreme high standards in bags.This bag had a strange texture and didnt looked aged at all.So I ordered a antique aged leather bag from MUXO by Camila Alves, here on QVC. Well the MUXO is the best second to none! The North and South bag I ordered is Aged and You can tell and feel the difference.I will pay for quality. This bag looks better on computer.Save your money , if you want Vintage buy MUXO. You will be taken away buy the quality and chiq uniqness of the Camil's MUXO bags! Sorry Bruce, but you have some stiff compitition here on QVC! Oh, and the chain is horrible and very heavy!
