Rated 4 out of 5 by Qvcshopper84 Too Big
I love b macs bags and this one was definitely pretty and I loved the smell but I found it to be too big. Sadly I am returning.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Houston156 Beautiful Style and Functionality
Just received this handbag in the vanilla color and am thrilled with it. The very light glaze on the leather looks refined, and it is not too shiny. There is enough structure in the bag that it is not heavy but still holds a pleasing shape when it is only lightly filled. With a tablet and day planner added in, it still looks sleek. This item is simple, designed with understated sophistication and it is very functional. It is better looking in person than it is in the photos. I read an earlier review that the short handles do not fold flat.. true but not a problem for my frame size. I ordered the navy too... have been hunting a pretty navy bag for ages, but will return this one because it is so dark it could pass for black. Otherwise it is beautiful. If one needs a really dark navy... go for it. The double tassel with the contrasting color on the bottom layer is very nicely done. I come back for the quality and value. Thank you and great work BM and QVC.

It is light weight. Holds a lot or a little. I use the handles instead of the shoulder strap and just let it drape.

I ordered the bag in vanilla and it is beautiful with the glazed leather and pop of pink. It's my first bmac bag and will not be my last! I love how lightweight and functional the bag is. The fact that the handles do not fold down does not bother me and I prefer the shorter strap to wear over the shoulder. Luv the outside cell pocket and inside pen pocket!

Love this bag, the weight is so light, that by the time I fill it, I can still carry the bag with no problem. The glazed leather is beautiful, the size perfect, & can also carry my tablet easily.
Hope this comes back, would like to have another color. I missed the on air presentation, & was looking for a new BMak bag & found this on line. Happy I found it before selling out.
Rated 3 out of 5 by nuts4q Handles do not lay flat
The materials in this satchel are beautiful but the design of the handles is flawed for me. They do not lay flat and the shoulder strap cannot be removed. So if you use the shoulder strap, the handles remain upright and if you use the handles the shoulder strap is in the way unless you tuck it into the purse and then you cannot close the purse. I sent it back- just did not work for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by misschristy Disappointed
I purchased this in the navy. I love glazed leather. On this purse, it's beautiful, but a thin leather. The pop of color is really nice. The purse is cheapened by the thin handles. The short handles stand up. This would be okay if the shoulder strap wasn't so short. I'm petite and when I put the shoulder strap on, the handles are crunching into my underarm. I also feel the handles are thin and inexpensive looking. This purse could have been a home run, but isn't. It isn't up to Bruce Makowsky's standards. I have some of his wonderful leather purses with thicker, soft glove leather. This one is going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MKanfer NICE!
Size: Perfect! Weight: Perfect! With outside pockets. The handles are fine for me - I usually just carry my bag over my arm. The color of this bag - called blush (I think) is a rose coral color - would go with anything (except maybe red or hot pink). I am very happy to have a large bag that doesn't weigh a ton. Try this one!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Savannah Su So VERY VERY sad!!!!!
I agree with the previous reviewer on most things. To me, the bag is perfect in size and organization, especially outside pockets. I will buy nothing that doesn't have them. I have Makowsky bags I use but most sit in my closet due to being very much too heavy. The weight of this one is perfect!!! The leather is GOREGOUS; I love the glaze. The appearance is elegant.
My problem is the straps. I assumed the small ones would fold down. They will not. They will partially "move" 90 degrees to the purse but won't really stay there. The shoulder strap is short but would be fine "on its own." But, the way this is designed, the smaller straps stick up under your arm and are not comfortable and certainly not attractive.
I give two stars only because, sans being able to use it, the bag is worthless to me and is on its way back. Were it made with short straps that will fold down, I would buy every color without hesitation. Personally I would like NO short straps at all, but I know some wish to have those. This could have been so perfect!!! I'm glad for all who can enjoy it; I can't deal with the straps.
