B. Makowsky Marina Pebble Leather Satchel
Cool looking bag
I love the color combination & retro look. Unfortunately, the handles on top of the bag are too heavy for the weak leather and the top portion of the bag crumples down and just looks sloppyl..
It's got to go back.
I bought two: the navy and the charcoal bag. Both are beautiful and the perfect medium size for everyday use. The leather is gorgeous as usual. Love the crossbody strap too!
Love the pursebut.....
I really love this purse! But, I wish the magnetic closure was a long "bar" like magnet that little 'DOT" does not hold my purse closed....I admit, I carry a lot of items but I do not over stuff it! BUMMER!!! I would order another color....only if the closure is changed.
First time ordering B. Makowsky and my last
Very disappointed in the size and quality of the leather. Over rated and priced.
Loved the look online, the colors really are nice. BUT, when it arrived today, did not even bother to unwrap the tissue. Stitching really bad at the ends, like they just ran the sewing machine backwards like it was a sheet, not an expensive bag. The leather has no great quality leather smell, hard to believe it is leather. The only nice thing about this bag is the color. And, the lining is so bad with this bag….
Last time ever with this brand.
Another fabulous purse by BMak! I got it in black/white which I think never goes out of style. I wish the strap was a little bit wider and a lot shorter. I'm 5'2'' and it hangs below my hips. But I had a few more holes punched in the strap so i could shorten it. Now it's perfect!
Great Color Combination
Couldn't wait to receive! Have a number of BMac bags but was very disappointed. Both straps too short for me & no structure. I hated to return but could not imagine wearing.
I love B Mak bags and have several. I couldn't decide on the color I wanted, but got the watermelon and am so glad I did. I have gotten lots of compliments!! I carry a lot of stuff in my bags and there is plenty of room. The only thing I'm a little disappointed in is that it is not as structured as I thought it would be. The leather is of top quality but a little too slouchy for me. If you're undecided, go for a fun color. You won't be sorry!!
Wanted to love this purse!
If only the black was really dark but has more grey. The pebble leather makes it look inexpensive rather than the rich leather look.
Beautiful Bag- Too Small for Me
This B. Makowsky is one of the most beautiful bags I have received from QVC, but the bag is too small for me, and I'm going to return it. I prefer a bigger bag. Also, the first time I wore it out the magnetic snap kept popping open on me, and didn't stay shut tight. I wish Bruce Makowsky would start putting zippers on his handbags - I prefer zippers over the magnetic snaps on a bag.
I bought the bag in the Navy/Green combo - it is a stunning color combination on the handbag.
attention to detail
I ordered this purse in black and white and was dismayed to see that the handles were white.I should have thought earlier how soiled they will become from your hands.Also when you use the front pocket,it throws the design off,which was a pretty factor.The piece of leather that closes the front pocket is a thin strip of tan??Why not black?Im keeping the bag as it's the exact size I'm looking for,but a few changes to design would have made it great.I usually buy Dooney and think I'll return to them.
Really Beautiful Bag
Bruce hit a home run with this bag! As soon as I saw the true navy/beach glass, I had to have it. It's sophisticated with a nautical flavor, which I think makes it very versatile. And the color combination is a real eye-catcher. I'm in the habit of carrying big bags, but it's nice to have something a little smaller yet still roomy enough for everyday use. That charcoal/cherry blossom is calling out to me, too. I will try to resist the temptation, but I may not have the self-discipline to resist.
