Was so excited to get this bag but didn't like the texture of the leather. The bag was too droopy and the handles squeaked when you would move them back and forth.

Was looking for a black bag that didn't look too heavy for summer use but not cloth. Came across this one and figured I'd give it a whirl. Came on Tuesday, opened the box, instant love!! I need a good size purse 'cause I have a lot of stuff and this holds everything and then some! Plus it's squishable and very elegant at the same time. Love the shading in the pattern, looks great with summer clothes and will go through the rest of the year very nicely. So happy I found it!!

This bag is spectacular. I read all the reviews before purchasing. Everything about this bag says high-end luxury. It really looks and feels "haute couture" expensive. The color can definitely go with anything, as it reads like a true neutral. It is so roomy. I carry a lot of things in my bag and this one still slouches beautifully, even when full. I have a feeling this bag will sell out very soon. It's a steal at the just reduced price.

I so wanted this purse, I tried to get the Ivory twice. Only each bag came with small blue ink dots in leather, & the 2nd bag came squashed in box like it was from a rummage sale. So I give up.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Phyrst Not as expected!
I saw this bag during an on-air show and thought it was beautiful. I like a big bag, always have even though I'm average height. On day trips and out-of-town trips I load my purse up so this seemed perfect. It was such a disappointment. Here's my break down. Pro's: Beautiful leather feels so smooth and soft.Could squeeze it all day! Feels well-made and looks expensive, not cheap rip-off. Shoulder strap is adjustable and removable. Handles fit right in crook of arm or up on shoulder. Hardware was substantial. Big and holds alot. There was so much paper tucked inside, it filled the box the bag came in! I got my tablet, cosmetic bag, brush, extra pair of slip-on shoes and shawl along with water bottle inside with room to spare. I didn't try my laptop but I think a small one might fit in. Came inside the dust cover. Cons: The snakeskin had sold out so I ordered the bone color. Thought on TV it looked sort of off-white and would make a perfect summer bag. Instead it's a beige or tan color, not very pretty at all. No outside pockets, just pleats. No flaps or anywhere to put phone where I could get to it quickly if need be. Inside lining was a muddy brown. Dark and felt like a cave when tying to find a certain item. Ugly lining for such nice leather. No organization at all. Made me miss my Tignanellos! No feet on bottom. A good leather bag needs feet! I bought this on sale but just too many negatives for a bag that cost nearly $200. Might have considered keeping if half that price - leather and size were biggest plus. No more "settling for second choice" for me. This bag convinced me!
Rated 5 out of 5 by QcustomerSince1988 MY NEW BEST BAG!!
I got this handbag in the snake-design leather, and it's the first handbag I've seen, OF MANY, which were supposed to imitate snake skin, that truly LOOKED like real snake skin. It also seems to be very good-quality leather. Other snake bags have been way too "shiny", or had a rough, suede texture in between the high/low pattern of the snake.
I really, really wish they'd offer this same bag in a few OTHER COLORS besides the snake - and that ugly 'putty' color they're calling "cream" (hated the color!). I'd like at least two more bags just like it except in deep or dark colors. (Navy - the "lighter Navy" would be awesome - so great w/jeans!)
I'm very impressed w/the quality of the new "Emma & Sophia" line, and I'm a real "bag lady"; I have several in the 4-figure range, but I just love this new bag!
The only improvement I would suggest (as did other reviewers), is that the two inside open pockets be made deeper! I agree w/them: They are very shallow, and everything falls out into the big center section when you set it down. (It does have ONE zip pocket inside.) I also love an OUTSIDE pocket on my bags (for phone, and a tissue in case of an unexpected sneeze)... but if the inside pockets were deep enough that they didn't toss their contents, I'd be so happy that I wouldn't even complain about no outside pocket. I almost took off one star b/c of the shallow-pocket issue, but I thought it might be unfair, since I do like the bag so much.
(Just, please: Deeper pockets INSIDE, or else a zip pocket OUTSIDE........ and new colors!!!!)
Rated 5 out of 5 by discerningshopper Bought both!
I love this bag...the design looks upscale and very feminine. Nice gathering...metal zipper, which is designed into the shape and style of the bag..not a fan of plastic zips that extend loosely and look downtown... no struggling to close...can close with one hand...that's a first...but it's due to the way they ingenuously made it a part of the top and sides. The leather is quality.. not the typical snake prints that peel off and look fake. I love the size and shape.. I'm a bbgirl and I thought this was smaller than I usually carry..but appropriately roomy. Strong rolled seems ...love how its rouched/folds. I personally wouldn't use or compare to any overniter... I also love the way it looks coming and going.. yes it sits a bit away from the body but only if you only use the long strap and still not much to me. I carry this on the arm..looks so chic...my 21 year old son even told me to keep it which is something when a man notices our accessories. If you must have outside pockets as I always thought... I think you will be missing out on a lux look at a small price tag. I just added one ' sportsac' makeup-type bag and I was surprised I could survive.. lol. I also quickly bought the bone...it looks yummy and I will save for next spring....such a class..lux ..super quality handbag. I'm so pleasantly surprised and pleased. Thx!
Rated 4 out of 5 by drflossgirl WOW!
I opened the box today and couldn't wait to use it! It's big and beautiful! It has so much room inside. It doesn't "puddle" yet because I think it's still new. Just the right amount of shine on the bag and the print is so real. I'm not sure how "fuzzy" this leather will get but I know that I will use it often. I love how it fits over my shoulder but yet I can carry it like a cross body. Only thing that I wish it had some sort of a cell phone pocket on the outside or more pockets on the inside. The pockets are also too shallow inside as the previous reviewers pointed out. Other than that, it's so chic! Beautiful! Wish I got both of them!
