Rated 1 out of 5 by Hotchicky Looks Cheap
I own four Makowsky bags that I really love--top quality leather plus fab looking hardware so much to my dismay this bag looks really cheap. The hardware is plastic and zipper is flimsy. Going back. What happened to those fabulous B Makowsky buttery soft leather bags!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mrs N from O Pink Passion
I really like B. Mak bags and I have several of them. I usually lose out on the pink guava selection because they sell so fast but this time I got a pink guava but much to my disappointment it is too small for my lifestyle. Another reviewer commented on the size as well but I ignored, wanting a pink guava so badly. It is rich looking, lightweight and has all the signature pockets for organization, but just to small for my use. I am bummed out over this. So back to the B. Mak drawing board hunt for Pink Passion.

I bought this purse in black because I've never owned a basic black purse ..... I know that sounds crazy but I've always thought they were quite plain and boring....until now. This one is not either of those things. It's stunning and looks like a work of art! And as my daughter said, "looks way more expensive then it was". Love it!

I just received this today, and I love it. I bought it in the olive, which wasn't my first choice but my other choices were sold out. I need another purse like a hole in the head, but I saw this on easy pay, so I caved!! I gave away almost all of my leather bags to friends because I got carried away...had so many and never used them. Now I just have this and one Tig bag. All others are Travelon...much less expensive than a bag like this. I love the combo of leather and suede, and as it turns out, I like the olive. It is definitely a neutral color. The size is perfect for me. Holds everything I need and it stays on the shoulder nicely. I always prefer a double strap bag, and this has that. I really love this and look forward to using it in the fall.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Toddy2 Disappointed
I really liked both styles of this handbag so I ordered my first one in berry and the color rubbed off. I returned it and ordered the Layla in black. The leather and suede are very soft and the color didn't rub off so I was happy with the bag. In less than a month, the leather handles started having small cracks and splitting! What has happened to the QC with Bruce's handbags? I have always been a fan but had to return two handbags and I'm very disappointed.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kaysie Striking but Small
This handbag is BEAUTIFUL in the black suede however the description is incorrect with regard to size. This is barely a medium bag. I regretted returning but it is very small; should have been free return shipping for the inaccurate description. Can you make it larger?
Rated 1 out of 5 by MoniqueDC Stunning bag, perfect size but poor value
I love the style of this bag and the olive color is yummy. For a $200 bag, however, it is missing some key items: Color should not transfer (what are you thinking - buy better leathers), Shoulder drop for the arms should be comfortable for the average sized woman, not just those under a size 6. Lastly, what is with the dingy lining? Having a brighter colored lining makes it so much easier to find your items, that I am surprised Makowsky keeps using these dark linings.....after all he says his products are about both fashion and function, These linings fail on both counts. I would not have purchased this bag for even $80 if the color transfer had been clearly documented. So disappointed - and so much wanting a great olive med=sized (vs luggage sized) handbag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by krazykat63 It's beautiful and I love it !
I tend to go for a satchel style bag. I prefer having space to find things and not have the bag so deep. What I really love about this bag is that I can stand it up on the table and it will stay open so I can find what I want. I love that it has a "big mouth". I can't stand other bags that I'd have to fight to keep it open because the opening is not wide enough. I love the chains and the leather. Who wouldn't? It's a nice size too. I think we all would go for a bigger and bigger bag if persuaded to. I never thought I'd own a B. Makowski, just because of the price. I wouldn't allow myself to spend that much on a bag; but I just turned 50 and so I treated myself! I think Bruce makes beautiful handbags and I'm so glad I finally got one!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jean in Chicago love this handbag
when i received this bag i just loved it. the size is perfect for me. love that it zips on top, love leather and suede together, and also love the fact that when you sit this handbag down it sits up and does not fall down. the only thing i would prefer is silver hardware on this bag. i am a silver person. but bruce i just love it. thank you so much.
Rated 3 out of 5 by qvcfan526 Small
If you like small bags this is the one for you, it is gorgeous but when it said 15 inches I thought it was at the bottom, it is at the top. I sent it back just because of this. If it was a bigger bag at this price it would of been great, but for me too small at this price.
