Joan Rivers Quilted Leather Satchel with Removable Chain Strap
The Joanie Bag
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this bag. I call it my Joanie bag as only Joan could have gotten this handbag to such perfection. I have the brown and REALLY need the black. Please bring it back. Miss you Joan.
WONDERFUL & CLASSY
Bless her heart for sharing affordable style & class to me. This is a large bag but not hard to handle. The bags shoulder strap is strong as my handbag contents are pretty heavy and it is comfortable on the shoulder, also easy to tuck into one of the side pockets for a cleaner look when not needed however it looks great draped. Just a style preference. Very sturdy, LOTS of useful pockets. Miss you Joan!

I just received this beautiful, luxurious quilted handbag today. It is everything you expect from Joan: Elegant style, and quality leather to die for. I missed buying the bag first time around because I thought I would wait for Joan's next bag to see which I would choose. Like everyone, I was so saddened by her passing that I had to have this one, the only handbag which she personally introduced on air. I got the brown--desperately want the black, as well. Please Melissa & David, keep Joan's Classic line coming. The two of you know her style & taste so well, it would be like she's still with us prompting us to stay Classic! I would recommend this bag to everyone...good for any age.
I received the black leather version of this bag and was so thrilled to finally be able to order it as the brown version was sold out and thought maybe no luck to ever purchase this purse. It is truly close in look to the expensive versions of a purse similar to this bag. The leather is very nice feel and quality and I agree, the details are met with perfection. I have the expensive purses in my purse collection and this version is wonderful. I love everything about it and for the price you get what you pay for and I feel based on my experience this is really a terrific buy. I hope to enjoy for many years. Just gorgeous and not cheap in any way!
I just opened the box after I ordered both the tan and black JR leather satchel on clearance. I have wanted this bag forever so when I saw it was on clearance, that did it. I had to have both colors. I am thrilled with everything about this bag. It is a beautiful leather and classy bag. It is so ironic it arrived the day dear Joan passed away. All the items I have from her line was never a disappointment. Everything so well made and well priced. I will cherish every item I have from her. Bless her.
I received this bag in black and loved it the minute I opened the box. The size is not too big, not too small, but large enough for all the things I carry. The compartments are well planned (thank you, Joan!) one large zipped, two snapped and one open one that is deep enough for your phone, your tissues, your keys - everything you need in a hurry! I did remove the chain, as nice as it is because I am an older person and it added weight- this probably would never matter to the majority of QVC buyers. I am looking forward to using this bag for a long, long time.
I saw this bag on line and it looked amazing much like the real deal "C" with the much smaller price tag. I loved the size and all the organizational compartments, along with the pretty gold chain hardware. However, I just could not get past the look of the leather, really lacks quality. I realize it doesn't have a big price tag....but I feel this bag could have been made to look a few notches above cheap. Sadly, I will be returning it.
Classic Handbag!!! Don't miss out on this one
Bought both the black and brown on clearance. I was a little nervous when someone mentioned it was matronly because I'm in my twenties, but I think it is classic and am so glad I got it. I love the quilted look and the gold chain detail. Perfect for my mom and perfect for me!! Timeless style in a handbag!! Thank you Joan and QVC!!
Nice LARGE satchel style handbag BUT
I was a little disappointed that this bag is very large. Should have paid more attention to the measurements. The size will limit my use of this bag. Was hoping it would be all purpose but in spite of that problem, I do like the design, the leather and the lovely color which is a lighter brown. I will certainly keep the bag, try to not overload it and use it as often as I can.
Great bag, love the chain strap, leather has a strong leather smell, love that. On shoulder, bag fits perfect under arm. Fits an iPad, so many pockets. I was surprised with the 'hidden' ones in front. 5 pockets, I thought just 3.. great for sunglasses, won't get scratched in their own space.. Channel looking with squares and strap.. I just love it! I got it in black
Love Everything About This Bag!
I ordered this bag first time it was on the air and was lucky enough to get that amazing new blush pink. The four outside pockets are genius. They're camouflaged into the design of the bag and they're roomy. The bag is just deep enough so nothing really gets lost at the bottom. I removed the sturdy bottom from another similar-sized bag that I own and put it in the bottom. Solves the issue of sagging. I got a pair of Isaac Mizrahi ballet-style slip-ons that match well. I've carried it everyday now for about 2 months and the leather is acquiring that lovely patina that makes it look very expensive. I feel quite elegant carrying it.
Happy With This Bag
I bought it in the black which is fine. Others are writing about a blush color. That sounds nice but was not available when I ordered. Well, black is as classic as they come and this style is too. The chain takes it up a notch in terms of style. The organization is perfect for me as I do not buy bags with only one large compartment. The purple lining is a nice contrast. I am very happy with this purchase. Thank you Joan Rivers and QVC. The price was perfect for me.
