B.Makowsky Glove Leather Zip Top Satchel with Flap Pocket
had to go back
I just had to have this purse, it's soo cute..I got the black , the leopard leather was stiff and felt cheap. The handles were too short to wear over a sweater or coat. The size was just rite,and not heavy. I really wanted this purse to be the one! I had to send it back ...
Great style, but couldn't overcome other issues
It was love at first sight with the Cognac Leopard bag. I drooled over it, I wanted it, I HAD to have it! Unfortunately, there were a couple of problems I couldn't overcome. The design of the top opening does make access to the inside of the bag a little tight. It just felt awkward. In addition, mine arrived with a strange bend or fold in the top opening that was causing the front of the bag to not sit properly. I am pretty sure the bag I received had been returned by someone else, as the cognac leather had several large scuffs on it. I quickly understood why-- I barely caught the edge of the bag with a fingernail and it scuffed way too easily. I just couldn't justify spending this much on a bag when i would have to live in constant fear of the slightest thing damaging the leather.
I did not think this bag would be big enough for all my stuff but to my susprise everything fit. I love this bag, it is cute easy to carry and I get complements on it all the time. It is also not a heavy bag so it does not feel like you are draging around a sack of rocks. Also, the price was good for one of B.'s bags.
Should have listened to the reviews...
I purchased this as the lunchtime special, didn't really need another purse, however to me it had somewhat of a vintage look to it, so I took a chance. It just arrived today and I was sadly disappointed. The leopard print looks cheap, the bag is really small (I know I was warned), and it appears to be difficult to get into/out of. Wish I had something nice to say, but once again I wasted several dollars in shipping and handling fees....when will I learn?
Just enough animal print!
I got lucky and found this little gem as a lunchtime special. It is sweet. Perfect to wear with a nice black dress or suit. My only complaint being that it does not come with a dust cover... I thought all B MAK's included one??? It is a nice size,and is very ladylike. I wanted a bag with animal print that is not over powering with the print. This is perfect.
Too Small For My Needs, Sniff...Sniff
Such a pretty handbag but it's too small for my needs and I will be returning this handbag. Longer handles would have allowed me to keep it and a larger size overall in general. Sniff.
I have this purse in both the black and cognac!! The black one is very rich looking and the cognac not as much, but still nice enough to keep!! It is a mid-sized bag and the opening is a tad small!! I love all of my B.Makowsky bags, his leather is the best for the price!! Thanks Bruce and QVC!!
Cognac is DARKER than it looks
I LOVE animal prints and really wanted to love this bag but it just wasnt worth the money. It is a small bag which is fine with me but I ordered the cognac color thinking it would be light as pictured but when it arrived it was too dark. If it had been a ligth cognac or a buttery yellow color it would have been great. But the color was dark and just looked wrong and cheap. One positive was that the lining was a pretty satin purple. Also the animal print suede part was a very cheap material. Back it went! :(
I wasn't impressed. It was floppy. The print on the front (I got black leopard) looked and felt cheap. Wouldn't recommend.
I just received my B. Makowsky bag in melon and animal print and it is gorgeous. The bag will pop with most outfits regardless of color. I love bags that say "hello" when other women, and some men, notice it. I can't wait to wear it. I gave it 4 stars because I wish it had been slightly bigger but I love it.
What a Mix Up
I was so excited to order this purse for my birthday. When it arrived, I tore open the box and it was the wrong handbag in the box. Customer service was called and the first rep said to send it back and I had to reorder it, the 2nd rep came on and said she would replace it immediately. I received it today and when I opened it- I was so disappointed- the purse had a big black stain on the leopard print. I am sending it back and not reordering it.
This bag is a stunner. It does not puddle and has a great shape to it. I love the purple lining. My mom got me this for Christmas and I am counting the days until it is on my arm. I am so glad that I am getting this bag.
