B.Makowsky Glove Leather Zip Top Satchel with Flap Pocket
So glad I bought this purse! I technically DO NOT NEED any more purses but I have been wanting a B. Makowsky for a long time! I kept looking at one of the Saffiano leather totes but this one is nicer, the leather is like butter & I love the deep purple lining on the inside. Not too big, not too small. The handles could be an issue for some but it just depends what you like. Leopard print is better in person. Got it on sale thankfully; I would definitely recommend!!!
I RECEIVED THE BEAUTIFUL COGNAC LEOPARD HANDBAG
AND IT IS THE COLOR OF BUTTERSCOTCH. A YELLOW BROWN
THAT IS SO CREAMY IT MAKES YOU WANT TO TOUCH IT.
THE BUTTERY LEATHER IS SO RICH AND THE LEOPARD
ANIMAL PRINT IS JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF ANIMAL.
IT HAS THE LOOK OF A TRUE DESIGNER HANDBAG.
THE OUTSIDE POCKET IS BIG ENOUGH FOR MY SAMSUNG
GALAXY NOTE 3. I CAN TURN IT SIDEWAYS OR UPRIGHT.
THE OUTSIDE LOCKING FLAP IS A GREAT SIZE FOR MORE
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.
