B. Makowsky Marina Pebble Leather Satchel
This handbag is so beautiful. I bought it in the navy and sea foam. It's lovely. I usually buy bigger bags, but I'm surprised at how much this can hold. I love that the handles can be pushed down and don't just stay up in the air. I love the touch of the white tassel. The straps are perfect for me. It just seems to mold nicely to my body when used as a cross body, I guess because it's not a super wide depth. It's enough depth to store my things (including a big wallet), but not so wide that it looks like a blob. I'm starting to pay more attention to depth in handbags and find that I like the sleeker look. This bag also looks darling on the wrist with the shorter strap. The colors are spectacular. One other thing - I have stopped buying all the light, pretty colors in bags because of the way jeans transfer color to them. This bag is the ideal solution for me. I get the beauty of the sea foam, but the back of the bag is navy and will be worn against my jeans. I missed buying the pretty light colors. This makes me happy.
Nice idea - Not What I Expected
I ordered the gray/pink combination and it looked great on television. Unfortunately I didn't care for it in person. The pink was pepto-bismol pink and was just too much for me. The style was nice but the pebble leather, in my opinion, could be softer. Other reviews rave about it but it wasn't for me and I returned it.
Pretty, soft and lots of pockets for organization. My tassel also was not orange but that is ok
Love these colors!
I absolutely love the beach glass color in the navy combo! Stunning!..For me however the size of the bag is a bit smaller than what I need, if only it would have been a few inches taller. Also the strap for cross body wear I feel needs to be more substantial (like the Cynthia messenger bag)!
Absolutly buterrery And beautiful!!
So soft and beautiful! I got the charcoal option (pink and grey). Stunning, big zipper pocket, big interior pocket...and the strap fits ME as a cross body and I am a bigger girl. It lays nicely when used as a crossbody. The pull strap for the charcoal is not tangerine like the video...its a light grey which looks better. The handles are a little snug to get on but fit nicely once on and when I say snug...I just mean ur hand touches the handle when slipping on and I am sure with use it will be easier. Highly recommended and luv the new Makowsky interior lining! A light and airy feeling..I luv ur style Mr
Bruce Makowsky! Keep on with ur bad self! :)
A lot of us have waited for this one I think.:) For one thing, it's light. Many of us have back and neck problems, fibromyalgia (like me), other things to carry, etc. "Better" leather is going to weigh more, but this leather is quite fine!!! The bag is very functional and has the outside pocket needed for quick grab items like keys. I will NOT buy a bags sans an outside pocket in addition to the "phone" pocket. I refuse to be leaving an office, store, etc.. and have to "get into" a bag to find my keys or to grab a tissue right before a sneeze.:)
Somehow Bruce managed a style that is both classically elegant and edgy..a wonderful combination. I have the navy which is charming. I personally hope we'll see this one or something similar (maybe north/south) in additional color combinations. I'd love a mocha and black.
Well done. Superb attention to customer feedback I think.
This has become my most favorite bag. I love EVERYTHING about it--the size, wide stripes, magnetic closure, long strap, and does not puddle--yah!
Really like the magnetic closure, no flap to get in the way and no zipper to catch your hand.
I purchased the black.
Haven't Wrote a Review in Years until this BAG!!!
I just got this bag today in the navy seafoam combo and knew I had to write a review which I haven't done in a long long time. The color is stunning, the size is perfect, I just love it. It is going to be the perfect spring summer bag. I love how it is only striped on one side of the bag. Going to save up and get another color for my birthday later on.
note on color
This bag is gorgeous just like all b.makowski bags. I received the pink/charcoal bag and love it!! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because when I received it, it was not exactly like shown. Mine did not have the splash of color like originally presented. Instead of the Orange color it shows in the picture it was a lighter gray color. Still a beautiful bag but wanted all to be aware. Don't know if it was just a mistake or if they changed it.
i love purses, this is the holy grail of a knew spring/ summer bag. my 1st b makowsky bag will not be my last!!! Great craftsmanship ,a timeless thing of beauty. thankyou qvc!!!!
LUV the Classy Black and White
Will spice up everything, from suits and tailored dresses to casual slacks and jeans. So happy about the removable strap which takes the bag to a dressier level. The gusseted front ZIP pocket is a real plus and the back cell pocket is oversized and almost will hold a mini ipad which peeks out of the tops a little. It's not a big bag, and I love my roomy satchels and hobos but there is ample space for the essentials in this bag. Hope these sporty stripes star in other B. Mak silhouettes this spring, LUV all the colors and looking forward to reviews on them.
This might just be my favorite bag of all time! And I have a lot of handbags! The leather is soft and pliable and it is roomy enough for all my "stuff". I got it in the navy and beach glass and it's gorgeous! I really don't want to wait until spring to wear it! Great job, Bruce. This one is your best yet.
