A201308 - Gretta Snake Embossed Convertible Crossbody Bag
I just got this in the mail today in neutral. Let me say...this is really a great bag. I doubled the strap to make it an over the shoulder bag, and now it has one more style to wear as. I really like it. It is smaller than what I am used to, but still a great little stylish bag. I am wearing it to work tomorrow, and am going to love it. I do believe it looks expensive, not fake, and extremely fashionable. Love it!!!
Great Value Looks Great
I purchased this bag quite some time ago on sale. The skin of the multicolor looks like the real deal! I carry mine without the strap. I have received so many raves on this bag. I really don't understand the negative reviews. OK so the pockets are a little deep. This dynamo looks like 10 times the money.
Came in handy for ..........
1st day of mainstream Christmas shopping. Have had this bag for 2 mos, had not an occasion to use it until yesterday. Own several cross body bags, however they are leather and heavier. My mood yesterday was to assist 12 yr old in shopping, long list, get it done and be comfortable. Threw on a t shirt, jeans, boots and fur lined hoodie. Sure did not look 62 yrs old. Boots and t picked up colors of this tan/blk bag, actually wore bag with strap doubled, ended up holding rings as jewelry items did fit into the bag. Style/color rate 5 stars, of course this is not excellent but certainly was an attention getter and sooooo convenient. All enclosed were hidden, light weight, phone/keys were in pocket. Easy to access wallet. My 40 yr old niece. Would never use for dress affair. I love this, warrants 5 stars for style, quality warrants less than clearance price.
Not a good crossbody bag
I purchased this bag to wear as a "dressy" crossbody bag at a couple of formal functions that I will also be volunteering at. Hence; I need a "formal" crossbody bag, so that I may keep my bag with me during the events. As a crossbody bag, this bag, (as a couple of other reviewers have said), does not work. It hangs awkwardly, the handles did not match up, one side was slightly scratched. I would/could not have used this bag, even as a clutch, because even folded as a clutch, the bag did not look "right". If you want to take a chance - and wear this bag as a clutch - be sure to check out the size - it is a larger than average clutch. However, I think it would work with larger/taller ladies. (I am 5' 3"). This looks so cute on the website; sadly, I had to return this item - and I haven't returned many of the items I have purchased from QVC.
The purse just arrived and it is cute BUT the picture provided here on the website does not tell the whole story. The bag actually has a heavy large metal ring on each side for a removeable shoulder strap. I bought the bag to carry as a clutch so I am disappointed in the two unsightly metal rings that show. I am not a fan of purses that have removeable straps and visible rings... I think it cheapens the look of the bag. It is because of this that I gave the bag only 4 stars. Other than that complaint, for the clearance price, I think the bag is cute enough to keep and carry. I bought the black and think it will be a great casual evening bag.
I took a chance on purchasing one in each color because of the value. I do not own any Gretta's bags before this purchase and was impressed on the multiple ways to carry them - on the shoulder, crossbody, or as a clutch. The neutral shade is really pretty in person. The black one is just okay. Quality definitely did not scream at me. The first thing I noticed was that the oval rings (handle) do not line up. Look at the picture and you will see what I am talking about. I thought maybe that is because when it is folded as a clutch, it becomes that way. No, when I carried it as a bag it is the same. When it is worn crossbody, the strap is too long. It looks very funny and bulky, with the flap not closed all the way when the bag is full. I would feel more comfortable if it was secured by a zipper.
Look carefully at the picture.See the oval metal rings?They are off center center and do not meet evenly giving it a sloppy look.Do not like the way the bag hangs when your wearing it cross body.Just does not have the quality I expected from a Gretta bag.I am returning this purchase.
Received this bag today...SO VERY PLEASED. Bigger than I imagined and looks expensive. I bought it for nightime; to hold lipstick, glasses, wallet, etc. but is much roomier. Can carry folded or not; or with the strap. Love the lining!! I have the black one and am considering ordering the other. You will love this handbag!
What a versatile handbag - Love it
I just received my bag, and I love it. It can be used as a clutch, crossbody, or handbag. It looks really expensive and oh so chic; I plan on using it for work or dress or both : )
