B. Makowsky Leather Framed Shoulder Bag w/ Tassel Detail
fell apart in less than a year
I loved this bag when I received it and used it for short shopping trips because It doesn't hold too much, but the sewing on the straps started falling apart within a few months and eventually the strap fell off! I'm very disappointed in the quality. The whole reason I buy B Makowsky is because of the supposed quality. He should write an apology to all who ordered this bag.
I received this bag today in the stone color. Love the style and the color! This bag is perfect for me as I do not carry alot of stuff in my bags. Saw this one on T.V. and wanted to purchase but was too late. Glad I waited for them to come back! This bag is different from my glove leather bags and to me this is agood thing. Try this one and you will not be disappointed!
Odd Little Bag
I ordered the bag is black and it would be great as an evening bag if all I was carrying were keys and a few other items. However, trying to fit in the normal everyday items such as wallet, cell phone and a few other necessities, the bag just did not close right. And the free hanging pocket seemed to be part of the problem if I really wanted to use it.
Overall I really like the design but think it needs to be a little deeper as one reviewer indicated. The leather is OK but I think this bag needs to be in the softer glove leather. I love the handles and the hardware is very demure unlike many other B. Makowsky. I really love the adorable fringed vanity tag and the single compartment design.
I am returning the bag but would have definately kept it if it had been just a bit larger and softer. I purchased mine as an "as is" so I was really disappointed since it was a such a good price.
I Wanted To Love It
Love B Mac bags, but this one just has a design flaw. Love the handles and the rich black finish, but the top doesn't close on the sides so anything loose in your bag has the potential to fall out. I would also like it better if the bag was just an inch or so deeper.
Not the same B Makowsky quality
Stick with your glove leather as these printed styles always seem to be of lesser quality.
I was looking forward to this bag, in the truffle color with a great shape, however, I will stay away from BW's animal skins in the future.
It's a real shame, as I send more back than keep anymore.
Bag Not Worth Price
As soon as I took this out of box, I knew by the straps it was going to have to go back, BUT, I decided to hang it over a door knob to see if it would "loosen up". Quality of leather is not good. I put items that I would normally carry in one of my smaller B'Mak crossbody bags, but it bulged, so I took items out. Even though bag has magnetic closures (Bruce has the best), there were still gaps in the opening/closing. Certainly not worth the sale price must less the $200 + now listed.
Not worth the money
While I like the style and shoulder strap length, the leather felt so cheap that I couldn't justify spending so much money. Don't know what happened with this one......if it had been my first B. Makowsky bag, there would be no more. Fortunately, I have others and know how nice the leather CAN be. Back it went.
NOT WHAT I EXPECTED!
Bag was small for the price. Didn't like the handles. Didn't like the texture of the bag. Just not up to the usual standards you would expect from Makowsky bags.
Classy and Great Sized Bag!!!
I own several BM bags & this one was a little bit of a let down. LUV the SIZE.,...LUV the MAGNETIC CLOSURE......LUV the PRINT.......LUV the NUMEROUS COMPARTMENTS inside. However, the leather is not that buttery-soft leather to which I have come to LUV, and for the price, I would expect the 4 little gold feet on the bottom. I am keeping this ONLY because of its size & because I have no other bag in this print. But, any future BM bags will have to include what this bag did NOT, or back it will go. Bruce, please, PLEASE don't start taking "short cuts" now!!
Not what I expected for a "B" bag..Odd size and shape, and not much room. The leather quality and snake print seemed more faux, witha plastic sheen. A little pricey for the effect.
Doesn"t look like a BMac Bag
I ordered this in the cream color and it came very fast. Yay QVC. However, as soon as I opened it, I knew it was going back. The leather felt fake and when you closed the magnet together, the frame did not line up at all! One thing that I have been hoping Bruce would do, he did on this bag. I hate center zip pockets and always wished he would put a zip pocket on both sides on the inside. I hope he will add this to other bags.
Not Up To Par
I have several other B Makowsky bags that I love. The leather is always so buttery soft you can't stop touching it. This is not the case on this bag. I purchased the brown snake when it was a One Time Only Value. I guess the application used to make the snake skin finish makes the touch more like plastic. Although I loved the size and design this bag is going back because it is now worth the price.
