A210593 - B.Makowsky Glove Leather Zip Top North/South Tote
So glad I didn't listen to the negitive ratings. This bag is beautiful and I love the handles. The hardware is his best, the lining is so rich looking. Can't believe I got such a wonderful value. That's qvc, your the best-
LOVE This Bag
I Love it! Just received it today. It is so soft & supple. I purchased the Stone color. I thought it was going to be more of an off white (&wanted off white/ivory), but it's more like a creamy beige. Still Love it. It's Big, roomy, lots of pockest (zip & slip) key clip & key fob. Beautiful aubergine lining. I like the improved handles (other more flat handles I've had problems with the edge cracking) but not this one, very sturdy. I also like the larger tailored outside slip pocket for my cell phone, much easier to get your phone in & out. If I had more money I'd buy the Grey one too. Something about that color keeps calling my name. Anyway I just Love this purse. You've outdone yourself Bruce. It's a definite keeper!
Soft leather, beautiful color (dijon), but super-stiff handles, wrapped in what doesn't seem like real patent leather, and my main reason for returning it - very poorly organized. I used it a couple of times, only to find myself searching for keys, makeup, etc. The bag is too big with a lack of interior structure. I had to return it.....beautiful to touch and look at, but not functional at all.
Of Course, It's a Bruce M.
What an awesome bag, the leather is soft, the color outstanding. Bruce puts the WOW in any bag he creates. I am a leather snob and nothing less than top quality comes into my closet. I have about 32 of his bags and each is wonderful from strap to zippers or closures.
I purchased the grey tote, and I liked the bag very much. Unfortunately, I had to return it the very same day I received it. The bag I received had obviously been returned by another person because there was a makeup stain on the inside cream colored leather, there were scratches all over the bag, and the key chain was badly scratched. I have returned items to QVC for various reasons but never for such poor quality control. Had it not been for all of the defects, I would have kept the purse.
This is an amazing bag and I am one picky handbag carrier! For me, this is a work bag + can carry my wallet + personal items as well. I would not carry this all day shopping or out on the town as it would be too large ( for me ) Again, the most luxurious work bag. I have the moss + it's so neutral + so beautiful.
Professional and Polished
I just received this handsome tote in nutmeg and I am IMPRESSED! I have looked all over for a business bag to carry my iPad et al which is a reasonable size and has functionality.
This bag is unique in the Makowsky line in that it has minimal bling. The design and hardware are sublimely beautiful and while it definitely can be used for business it also has a very high fashion appeal. I don't have a problem with the straps as others have reviewed. It is perfect for my daily use and the leather is yummy. I would highly recommend this tote and may even purchase a second one in another color.
Love the bag - couldn't keep
This bag is really gorgeous up close as stated by other reviewers. Got it in black and fell in love! Sadly I had to end up returning it because the shoulder straps just don't stay in place to allow for multi-tasking. I really wrestled with myself about returning, but just couldn't justify keeping it (given the price), since I wouldn't be able to carry it very often... The extra binding on the straps look beautiful and are definitely very sturdy, but they are somewhat impractical if planning to do other things while carrying it. It also becomes very heavy on the shoulders when a laptop is inserted. I travel a lot and was really wanting to keep it, but regrettably back it had to go. Gave this 3 stars because of the above, otherwise this is a great style and size for most!
I love this tote! It is just beautiful and so well constructed. Understated elegance. The leather is so soft. I took it to a four day conference and received so many compliments. I purchased it in black and it's just so elegant with the cream leather collar around the top inside and the eggplant satin lining is a perfect complement. It's very roomy and spacious. This is not a bag that I would carry as a purse. It's truly a tote and one that works well as a briefcase. You won't be disappointed unless you plan on carrying it over your shoulder all the time. Then the size, weight and construction of the handles do not make it easy to carry like a shoulder bag.
I just received this bag yesterday. It is beautiful (I got the yellow) and is the perfect color for spring and summer! I bought this as a replacement for a bag that I have traveled with. This fit the bill - zippered compartment for my wallet and passport, outside compartments for a camera, waterbottle, cell phone. I also liked the fact that the bag will hold my Ipad with no difficulty. I will be in Italy all summer and wanted a bag that didn't break the bank and fit right in in the world of fashionistas.
However, I am undecided about whether or not I will keep this bag because it is heavy and HUGE. I did not think that the weight of the bag itself would make much difference but it does. And even with all my things in it there is tons of room left. It does not seem to big from the descriptions but on my body it is very large.
It would be nice to have this exact bag in a versions that is perhaps 3-4 inches smaller all the way around.
Quality leather bag!!!
I like this bag very much however; hate the straps they keep falling off my shoulder, not a very good shoulder bag. I give it three stars because when am in the stores shopping and need my hands free am being annoyed by the falling straps. This makes me loose my concentration on shopping.

I have been "addicted" to these bags from my first bag. I love the material and the quality of the bag. They complete any outfit. They are fabulous. He is a very talented designer developing elegang bag for us and I thank you. I love my bag
