B. Makowsky Candice Glove Leather Zip Top Satchel
This is the best handbag so far and as QVC will testify I have returned many.
Thanks Bruce it's nice to know that someone is aware that a girl needs several separate compartments.Outside pockets are the best. I would have given it 5 stars if the inside lining was lighter and if the handles were about two inches longer. Just cause I like to put my Handbag on using the same arm I pick it up with. All in all this is finally a keeper. Makes me Happy as well as QVC i'm sure. Beautiful leather and not too heavy or stiff. Thanks again Bruce.
Very Very Nice ...but not a good fit !
Very Very elegant ladies ....but way way too overly done the silver hardware a little much for this lady! I love the color I received the MINT on my splurge for 5 easy pay day...and it's beautiful ...beautiful I was thinking about keeping just to glance at it ...but nah , This type of purse is for the seriously commuting lady and I don't do that so it's just a huge purse with nothing in it! So it's going back I would've LOVED to see this in a smaller size for us non-commuting people .......oh it's VERY VERY boxy!
Beyond Beautiful Beach Glass Buttery Bag!
I just got this purse today in the mail. I'm so overly surprised and happy as to how pretty the purse is! It's gorgeous. Beautiful details. Buttery leather feel. Love the Beach Glass color. And it's just the right size..roomy with lots of compartments, but not overly heavy. I'd highly recommend this bag! Thanks Mr. Makowsky!
even better than i ever imagined
I finally have found the perfect navy purse with BMak! Everything about this purse is perfect..exquisite hardware, saturated navy colour, and abundance organizational features! I'm planning on purchasing another one in tan!
Lovely purse, just lovely. I think that says it all.
I have been searching for some time now for the 'perfect' handbag. BMak is one of my favs, but until recently had no luck. Got it in Navy and is the perfect color with lots of pockets, zippered areas (very organized) and great looks. Oh, and did I mention the leather - mmmmm, like buttah! Now to finish protecting my investment with Mink Oil.
Nice ,nice, although would have liked it a little larger, but this will fit the bill. The navy has silver hardware and this only adds to the beauty of the bag. I have many Bmaks and other designer bags, but think this style and this maker is my fave! Oh, and the easy pay was a bonus! Will be going back for the Bellini.
Finally did it!
I've been following the B. Makowsky line on QVC for a number of years, searching for the "perfect handbag" and when this one came along, I finally pulled the trigger and bought my first B. Mak! The organization is phenomenal and there are so many pockets that I have trouble remembering where I put everything. I refer to it as my walking filing cabinet and have nicknamed it "Kit" for short, for the whole kit and caboodle.
A few suggestions for Bruce for future designs...the other reviewers were correct that the straps should be a little longer so the outside strap does not slip off your shoulder. The way the bag is weighted when full, it just happens. Also, I'm right-hand and always carry the bag on my right, so I would prefer the zippers to run from front to back, but worn on that side, they run from back to front making it more difficult to slip into the bag. Finally, I would place the interior cloth designer tag at the far end of the main compartment zipper so when I just open it a bit to slip inside, it doesn't get caught in the zipper.
Overall, I'm very impressed by my bag and hope it will be the first of many!
The perfect bag!
I have many B Mack bags, but this has moved to the front of the rack! It is a winner in every category- the leather is so soft, it's "pet able"! The style of the bag is very organized and structured, not slouchy and puddlely like some of Bruce's other beautiful, soft leather bags. I do appreciate having a place for everything I want to carry. Not too heavy, classy hardware, yummy purple lining ( I think I have the Bellini) -no matter, I LOVE THIS HANDBAG!
Did I say, it has strong magnets on two sections and strong, goldtone zippers on remaining sections. Max security, nothing falls out, no one can slip in. One tiny addition: an adjustable shoulder strap, when it's packed up, I could carry it over my shoulder, or even cross body. Even so,love, love, love this bag. Thanks Bruce! You "hit this out of the park"!!!!
My First B. Makowsky Handbag
When I received this handbag I was really impressed with it and I really like this purse a lot. I am keeping it for myself. I like the soft leather and I also like the purple lining on the inside. I am a Dooney & Bourke fan. But now I like this purse best of all. I also like all of the compartments. And the magnetic ones are different to have too.
I just got this bag and I love it. The guava pink is a beautiful feminine color and very mature ( not a bubble gum pink). The leather is buttery soft but yet supple. The structure is perfect, no slouchies here and the organization is a dream. I am so happy with this bag and look forward to using it often. ( I also really love the Joan Rivers bag I recently purchased on Qvcand willbe using both. Thank you for this great bag and a great price. In the mall it would have been another $100and no easy pay.
Now My Favorite BMack Bag
Have had this bag a couple of months and should really have written a review before now, especially since this is probably my favorite BMack bag of all. That's saying a lot considering I've lost count of how many of Bruce's bags I have ordered over the years.
I ordered the Bellini; and it is spot on for the color. It seems to go with everything, so some might consider it a neutral. Neutral it's not, though, and TV doesn't do this color justice. There's something almost magnetic that reaches out and grabs your attention.
The style is flat out elegant without being stuffy about it. It does work well with whatever you're wearing. I love the structure so it keeps its shape and doesn't become floppy with time.
The leather is BMack. What can I add to all the accolades his "buttah" feel leather have prompted? He should have his own recognized category of leather patented.
The hardware is outstanding--subdued but one of the bag's highlights and very elegant. AND I'm so happy to have the zippered compartments. I've become so paranoid about any bag that doesn't have zippers and allows easy access to thieves.
I have to laugh. I reviewed the video before writing this and found out I still have two more compartments I had forgotten to use.
The rich lining only adds to the luxe of the bag when opened. With so many pockets, I know exactly where everything is and don't have to dig anymore.
My only wish is that it was just a tad larger. I've found that the more you put in one section of a bag, the less room you end up having in others.
I hope I can afford this same bag in a couple more colors, so please don't discontinue Candace. This is an outstanding example of the best of BMack!
Zipper Pull Broke First Day
The first time I used this bag, the beautiful zipper pull came apart. I lost part of it so I can't put it back on. It looks very odd with the zipper pull missing because of its size. It is very noticeable. This should not happen to a bag this expensive. Very sad about this. It's past the 30 days to return it.
