Isaac Mizrahi Live! Pebble Leather Logo Tab Satchel
The size and style of this handbag I loved so I ordered it. I got it yesterday and sent it back today. The sides felt like cardboard. I would have expected a better quality handbag for the price. I returned it and now have ordered a Dooney & Burke handbag. I hope I like it better since it is costing more.
Worn looking after a dozen uses
I usually love Isaac things especially his purses but this one has not held up to his quality. I used it last year just a few times for church then brought it back out this year for use on special occasions and church it is showing wear and tear after maybe a dozen uses around the top trim. Of course to long ago to send it back.
I just received my bag today and I must say that the bag is very nice but not what I expected when I opened the box. I ordered the Antique white bag and I did not like that it has red lining all around all the edges of the bag which makes the bag edges stand out. The picture online does not show the red edges so it is hard to tell that they are there. Also the shape of the bag does not seem sturdy or strong enough to last from wear. It feels like cardboard is layered underneath the thin leather. I haven’t decided yet whether or not if I will send it back because over all I still like the bag but if I do send it back it is because of the red lining around the edges and because I don’t think it will last from wear and it is not worth the cost. The edges should have been either a gold or tan color on the antique white.
Stylish but Heavy
I received this in the ivory color. I did not notice on the online description that this bag has red tipping around the edging. It was not what I expected, but the bag is beautiful. Sadly, I am returning the bag because even empty it is WAY too heavy. In fairness, I do have a bad back but I had someone else look at the bag who also thought it was quite heavy. It appears well made and sturdy, with the exception of the magnetic closure which seems as if it would open too easily. I still would give it 4 stars as it may be just perfect for someone else.
Although this bag has a nice style, it appeared too piecemeal in person as there is alot going on so it went back.
Oh la la!
I was excited to receive my new purse last week. It's beautiful. I've already gotten a number of compliments.
I am disappointed with this ISAACMIZRAHILIVE LEATHER bag. The problem is the painted leather edge remains tacky. The tacky handle edge removes the color from the bag, leaving marks that look like worm tracks. Not attractive, at all!""
Loved the size
I really liked this bag when I received it. The size is perfect and the center zipper compartment is great. The problem is that the two magnets at the top of the bag are not strong enough and come apart. Magnets need to be stronger or maybe a zippered closure added. the Daisey logo was to big for the front of this bag.The large size took away from the classic beauty of this bag. Wish I could have kept it. Sorry
Leather looks and feels like cardboard. The paint on the trim is really a mess. Different colors, very sloppy application -- looks terrible -- looks like a child did it -- and it is sticky!! Leather is so stiff I feel like if I pull the bag open to really get into it, the leather would tear at the seams inside by the zipper. Bag is definitely going back. Probably won't order any of his bags again.
I really wanted to like this handbag. The style is nice but the bag itself is very heavy. The
red trim is very inconsistent, some spots a nice bright red and in other spots missing altogether. The magnetic closure is very weak and the two sides are not matched. Overall, not worth the money, even at a sale price. I have to wonder where quality control was on this one.
I use this satchel as my day bag. It has lots of room for my makeup, cell phone, tablet and anything else I need to carry with me. I bought this bag as a birthday gift to myself and don't regret it!
This bag is just what I need to get me organized. Too often I either can't find anything in my bag or don't have enough room. This solves both these problems. And I love the color - Chestnut. But I always love Isaac's colors.
