Rated 4 out of 5 by Wendy Baby I HAVE THIS IN EVERY COLOR!
I have a rule that I will not buy a bag that does not have at least one outside pocket. I made an exception with this one because I really like it. I like it so much, in fact, I have one in every color! If the bag had an outside pocket, I would have rated it 5 stars. I like satchels that have handles along with a long, cross-body strap, so this is perfect. If you do not need to carry a lot, this is a great smallish tote. I have many, many bags so I am constantly switching bags depending on my activity and what I am wearing, often more than once per day, so I cannot rate this on its durability but I do love its functionality.
Rated 1 out of 5 by BrittanyDawnG I really dislike this purse.
I was so excited to get this purse, it's just the right color and seems to be a small and practical size, my problem with this purse is it has already gotten so dirty only within a little over a month of having it. It looks like I've had it for years. I am not someone who just throws her purse around either, I take very good care of my purses. The purse literally never even touches the ground (I always hang it somewhere). I understand that the type of leather is probably more susceptible to getting dirty, but this is just crazy, me only having it for a little over a month and it already looks this bad.
Another thing I really don't like about the purse is the placement of the shoulder strap. When I carry it by the handles the strap awkwardly hangs down, and because it cant be removed, and because the placement is a few inches below the top, there really isn't any solution but to just let it hang there. If you carry the purse by the handles and the shoulder strap, it's also pretty awkward looking.
When I ordered this purse I was excited about the 2 large zippered pockets that are located on both sides of the purse. If anything they mostly just get in the way. When they are unzipped the magnet piece in the middle holds the sides together and it's just weird placement not very manageable. I always get frustrated trying to locate anything inside of the purse, maybe you would say I just need to be smarter than the purse, but I am telling you, I've never owned a purse that frustrated me so! I never thought I'd write a bad review about a purse. I'm not one to write bad reviews about anything, but I wanted to write this because this purse really is that bad.
Rated 5 out of 5 by QVC Renee Best Ever!
This is the best BMakowsky bag I have ever received, and I have a number of his bags.
I was surprised to see this on a Lunch Special and colors were limited, got the Pumpkin color and it is great. Love it. Leather is so soft, style and extra organization pockets are good. Love that you can fold over this purse on the top half. Perfect.
Whatever happened to B Makowsky, He has not been on QVC for a long time. Miss him.
Rated 4 out of 5 by YogaGirl81101 Great Bag
Finally! I found a bag that I really like: cross body, convertible, able to hold tons of stuff including lunch items. Sadly, because I am so obsessed with perfection in a bag at this price, I had to return it. It seems no matter how you attach the strap, it is always turned around backwards. I wore it around the house a couple of times, but I just couldn't get over that little issue.
If you love Bruce's bags, you will love this one if some little details like the one above & what other reviewers said, don't bother you!
Rated 3 out of 5 by Elisha2 Can't Say Much Good
I bought this bag because it didn't have the outside cell phone pocket which I definitely do not like. I never carry my cell phone in an open access outside pocket that Bruce makes. I've already lost two expensive phones that slipped out of it. I try to get a bag that has a more finished version of outside pockets such as a slip pocket with a foldover flap with a magnetic closure. I would have given the bag two stars, but I realize some people like the open pocket, so I will give it a three. Anyway, I like the bag but it is too small for me. Another big reason I am returning it is because the strap is not removable. I should have checked the picture closer before purchasing it. I thought the strap had hardware where you could take it off and carry like a clutch. No so... One would think at this price the bag would have this feature. I purchased the peachy color and it is nice. I am just not working out with Bruce's designs. I like Helen Barr. She gets it. Two straps, one short and one long that's removeable. And she doesn't put logos with her name on the outside of the bag. (I am not an advertising billboard) It is on the inside lining which I like. Fashionable, understated, elegant and chic.
Rated 4 out of 5 by PattyGay Missing the cell phone pocket
I love B Makowshy bags, but I'm having trouble adjusting without at least the outside cell phone pocket. I really need an easy access outside pocket as well, but I was willing to try to adjust witout it, I just cant' give up the cell phone pocket. This bag is so cool, I love the look, I like the way it folds at the top and has both sets of handles, but I just can't function without at least the outside cell phone pocket.. I'm going to send it back.. and it's a shame because it is gorgeous.
Rated 4 out of 5 by leslie1125 Interesting concept but.....
The style of this bag really appeals to me. It's able to fit more inside then you would think and it's fairly easy to access them. Sure, I wish that it had some outside pockets, atleast the typical cellphone pocket on the outside but I could adjust to the change. I am disappointed in the appearance in the leather. It's the wonderfully soft leather that Bruce M is known for but I found the appearance to be not as sharp like his other bags are. I got it in the ink so may be that has something to do with it? (though when I zoom in on the images the other colors seem to have the same appearance). I also find the shoulder strap uncomfortable after I have all of my things in it (wallet, small cosmetic bag, day planner notebook). It's probably going back.
