G.I.L.I. Leather Large Roma Tote
LOVED the bag, color looked odd to me
I ordered this after I had my Roma 2 for a while because I really liked that bag, but actually wanted something just a little larger. I ordered the Camel color, as it was the only one left. I received the bag about 2 weeks later (like most of my QVC orders). Opened the box and thought it was perfect except the color looked a bit odd. I packed it up and took it to work the next day to see if the color would grow on me, and unfortunately it did not. It looked more like a foundation color, than a color you would see on a high end stylish bag like this one. So, it gets returned.
It works so well for the office - fits everything I need for the day in one, fantastic looking bag. I see these women coming and going from the office in my building carrying a purse, a lunch bag and a laptop bag. It seems terribly inefficient and no where near as stylish as using just one bag like this.
For now I continue to cary the Roma 2. I am so anxious to get this larger one - it felt so much better to carry than the R2 - hung better, closed up better, and fit over my shoulder better. Too bad I did not like the color.
I give it 4 starts for form, function and the perfect touch of sass with the tassel! Would have been a 5 if me and the color were better friends.
PLEASE BRING THIS BACK in more colors Lisa - Black, Red, Brittish Tan, etc. I will order for sure!
Best bag ever - and gorgeous!
My search for a high quality yet durable crossbody bag to wear to work is over! Luxurious soft leather and great size. I am used to Vera "Vera" bags as my go to work bag, but I love this bag even more because it is larger. Recommend a purse organizer if you want to carry more items. For this Goldilocks, this is the perfect Roma (bought and returned the 2 and croco ones). No cracking/peeling on original. Handles are well-crafted and flexible. Camel is a beautiful neutral. I plan to buy black, and maybe another color or two when more colors are available. Please bring back and offer easy pay! High end bag! Get tons of compliments.
Love This Bag!
After carrying my 4 Roma 2 bags for the past few months I decided to purchase the larger Roma in camel for summer. I would have ordered the ivory ostrich one too if it was in stock. I have not carried this bag yet but can't wait to start. I only wish there were more colors. Please being back the red and a yellow one would be great. I will continue to carry my Roma 2 bags as I have not had any of the reported issues with mine. I have never owned this many of the same bag in different colors. I just can't seem to stop buying them. These are the best bags ever. Do not hesitate to buy....either size.
Perfect As Is
I read the product description and knew it didn't have a magnetic clasp to close, outside pockets or feet on the bottom. Also knew it would be huge.....but I love big to huge bags!!.
I think a closure other than what it has and pockets on the outside, would change the drape and look so not sure why it received any negative reviews for features not noted in the description?!?
The pebbled leather is sumptious, tassel perfect, have a purseN to organize smaller things when I want to do this and still have room for my Surface, iPad mini a sweater, extra pair of shoes, etc.....
Will definitely be buying more colors if/when they become available and if they do not, will be happy with the ones I have (black and natural ostrich)
Great job Lisa, I knew you were one of my favorite hosts for a reason....... GOT IT LOVE IT!!!
Sadly, had to return my camel Roma.
Against my better judgment and the negative reviews of the Roma 2, I thought I'd try the original Roma.....loved the style, loved the camel color. When my box arrived, it had my invoice, but someone another person's order/invoice (a Tig bag). I called cust. service and told them what happened. They were great and immediately sent out another Roma to me and I returned the other person's merchandise. When I finally received my bag, I started to carry it immediately. Unfortunately, tiny cracking started to appear on two places on the handles close to the O-rings. I hated to return it but it's too much money to settle for this. I just wish they had used the same type of sealant on the handles that Dooney and some of the other manufacturers use on their bags.
I bought this in the black and originally intended to truly use it as a large travel tote. It worked perfectly (and beautifully) for that but I've found myself also using it as my every day black bag becaue I love it so much. Please bring back the red -- I'll definitely buy that in a heart beat. This bag looks like it cost much, much more and to me it's been well worth what I paid for it as I have had countless compliments on it.
quality got lost on Roma 2
Sent back a 3rd Roma 2 because of the cracks near the O rings,so decided to order the first Roma, ordered the camel, I was so excited to get the purse. When I torn into the box because of my excitement, should of known,it was a returned, it had a crack near the O ring and the best of all the tassel was missing. This was not As is, this was a brand new purse at $280.00. I'm so annoyed because of the condition of the purse and that QVC continues to sell these purses when they have major problems with the cracks near the 0 rings. Keep hearing about Liza talking about her Roma,why hasn't she had a problem?????
Worth Every Penny
This bag is simply amazing - I like everything about it. I purchased the natural ostrich which is a rich, beautiful color. The leather is top quality, the size just perfect, the gold hardware makes it a stand-out, and the shape is very designer. Lisa, thank you for bringing us a bag that looks like it cost a small fortune. I also like the fact that it doesn't have feet, which in my opinion would cheapen the look.
QVC, please bring back the BLACK!
I purchased this & the Roma 2. This is definitely the biggest bag I have ever had. I feel like I am carrying a duffle but the Roma 2 is not big enough. I needed a bag that was big enough for my things and a few things for my 4 year old when we go out. This fits the bill perfectly. I don't use the longer strap so having a magnetic closure is not an issue for me. The only thing I would change would be to put a slit on one side for a cell phone. I will repurchase if it ever comes back in black.
LOVE THIS BAG! WANT AT LEAST ONE MORE!
I love everything about this bag. I got it in camel, even though I wanted black, because black had sold out. I was afraid I'd miss the chance to even buy one. If it comes back into stock, I'll buy another one in black. I love the quality, the leather, the hardware, the SIZE (especially) and the tassel. I just love the whole thing. Please bring it back one more time.
Large bag and that's the way I love them!!! Please bring this back in more colors!!!!
Pleeeese bring back all the colors.....love love love this purse. The size is terrific, the feel is terrific...NEED them all! Great job Lisa. Bring us matching wallets, coin purses, any thing you can think of....Thanks Jill
