Rated 4 out of 5 by Jmart518 Got it Like it but don't Love it
I love the Doonery and Bourke Florentine Leather collection. I wanted to try this GILI bag in Warm grey because I thought it would be of similar quality. It is soft but not as amazing as what I am used to. I would compare this to a Isaac Mizrahi Live quality which is still good but not full price for a GILI bag. I would buy another GILI but only on sale.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Megp Now this is a handbag!
I ordered this bag in terracotta and absolutely love it. The color is perfection and the leather is the softest I've felt. I know everyone uses the expression "it's like butter" this bag seriously feels like that. It literally puddles when you put it down on a table. This is a very roomy bag. You could even use it as a stylish diaper bag. I had to order mine "as is" because that was the only way I could get the color terracotta and my handbag was in perfect condition. I love the large tassel as well. I also own the Roma 4 tote in colors Sand and Camo and the leather pouch in Camo and I am very pleased with everything. I'm now a GILI girl. Can't wait to see all the new that will be brought in!
Rated 1 out of 5 by QVCshopperbel disappointed on the color & the quality of leather
I was waiting impatiently in anticipation of having this beautiful hobo as presented on the air. So disappointed when I received it as it was such a let down. I wanted a white bag for the summer and the soft leather look was very inviting. As I took it out of the packaging, the tassle was all crumpled. it's not as white as it looked. It looked more like an off white color to me and the leather is not as soft as stated. It's a good looking bag but not worth the price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ally G I LOVE This bag!
I am an 18-20-size girl who carries only large bags. So I was very interested in this bag, which is comparable to other bags I have from other brands. I came to the bag quite late, but I am so glad that I actually bought it. It is fantastic! I got the Terracotta, which is now sold out...but WOW...LOVE. I did not get a return (and I stand with anyone who did..it's wrong to send a return that's not "As Is"), so I'm happy. It's big. The leather smell is FABULOUS. And the color is on pint for this year, although I buy for myself, not trends. It's almost gone, this bag...but if you can get it, DO. It's an early bag, so all the "luxury" characteristics are there!!

I saw this on Late Night Special and had to try it. I ordered ivory because I've been a looking for a white bag for summer. The pebbled leather is EVERYTHING! It's substantial while being soft. Jill was not lying that you won't be able to stop touching it. It is really big like everyone has said so you will most likely enjoy it if you love huge tote bags that you can throw everything in or if you plan to use for an overnight bag (it's roomy enough to hold 1-2 change of clothes and/or a light pair of shoes). I'm returning it because I would prefer a bag in true white but it really is beautiful! Just can't justify keeping this one and a future purchase in white.
Rated 2 out of 5 by HandbagAddict Not Large Enough!
After reading so many reviews proclaiming how large this bag is, I decided to order it to use as a travel tote. While it is large for a purse, it did not suffice as a travel tote. I used it once to carry a change of clothes for my husband and me and was surprised that it could not easily carry two pair of jeans, two light/spring tops, and two pair of shoes. While it did contain the items, it was so full that I couldn't carry it on my shoulder, and the magnetic strap on the top wouldn't reach across the opening. It is an attractive bag, but for the price I would have to love it, and it would have to be functional (as a tote), so it has been returned.
Rated 2 out of 5 by nmmom tried to love it
*yes, it's big--the pictures and dimensions show that, shouldn't be a surprise
*yes, it's not a lightweight bag--see above
*yes, the leather is great, the color (terracotta) is a great neutral (color is as shown in the pictures, shouldn't be a surprise--but the name "terracotta" is not really applicable), and the tassel is fun--these are the reasons it gets any stars at all
*wanted to love it, but agree with many of the reviewers that multiple problems make it a no-go:
*no organization inside or outside: if you are used to throwing all of your items in an open grocery bag, then you will love it--otherwise, there is no way to find anything, even if you add a couple of bag organizers (which, as someone mentioned, flop over anyway, since the bag is so huge, and some of us don't like purse organizers--the purse itself should be enough)
*doesn't drape properly: since the bag is so wide at the bottom, everything you put inside sinks to the middle of the bag and it hangs like a full diaper, there is no structure/strength to the bottom of the bag to keep it flat when items are in it--and yes, I know it's not supposed to stay flat, but it doesn't make a nice drape in the center, just a lumpy mess around your contents
*shoulder straps: as others have noted--don't stay on well, and would be great if they had an extra couple inches of length--as they are currently, makes this just a bag to hold in your hand
*weird sides: the designer bag that this is based on has sides that "stick out"--that is why the sides in this bag are made NOT to drape inward (or clip together inside) like the smaller G.I.L.I. stirrup bags, however, since they are very "soft," they half drape in, and half stick out, thus not following the shape of either the designer bag nor the smaller stirrup bags--just end up looking sloppy (see online presentations)
*spill/security issue: there is no zipper or other way to ensure items will stay in; the magnetic strap is weak and mostly falls off to the side of its paired magnet, meaning it doesn't do much anyway and the top of the bag is just "open"--this alone would not necessarily be an issue, but when you set it down, the leather puddles to the floor, so the contents can just fall out (see presentations)
*there are no feet on the bottom--given the vast expanse of the bag, the leather at the bottom and sides will soon be trashed, unless you are planning to never put it down (or planning to have someone follow you around all day carrying a nice cushion to set it down on)
*all of the above problems therefore, make it less useful for an "everyday" bag: this leaves a couple of options for use--a gym bag (which, at 300 dollars, seems a bit too extravagant), or a travel bag, which means using it ONLY as a car/weekender bag, since it is not possible to use on planes, trains, etc. due to the multiple reasons listed above (no organization, no top zipper, no feet) and it would be soon damaged/dirty by getting stuffed in the overhead bins or under the seat in front of you
*would be great if this bag: had 3 (yes 3!) rows of feet across the wide bottom, some sort of top security (zipper or flap or other), sides that would either drape in OR out (but not both), a bottom with a bit more heft--to either stay mostly flat or to drape gently in the center (rather than looking lumpy), some type of interior organization, and better and longer shoulder straps
Rated 5 out of 5 by qvc_adict Gorgeous Bag!
This bag is a great day tote or for the lady who needs to carry everything on the go. As other reviewers have said, the leather is fabulous. I have paid well over $1000 for many of my bags and this one is every bit as luxurious as you would expect. I purchased the white and wish other colors were in stock. You won't regret this buy! Also, comes with a very nice duster bag.
