London Fog Knightsbridge Tote with Flap Closure
I refer totted back and forth trying to decide if I wanted to return this bag because it is just so stiff. But the bag's color is just so beautiful. So I kept it . Now I am so happy I did.
I got the teal ostrich. It's exactly what I expected, it's a little on the heavy side, but then it's a biggish bag and the material isn't flimsy. I wanted a "handbag", not a shoulder bag; the straps are perfect. I like the zipped compartment in the middle for my change purse and credit cards. The color is gorgeous, more green than blue, a true teal. I just love ostrich texturing. Definitely a winner, and an amazing price. Very happy with this purchase.
A little stiff.
I hope this will soften as I use it. I got the teal. It will travel on airplanes with me. My passport, tickets, jewelry, prescriptions, pinochle cards and tally sheet all fit in with a lot of room to spare for those things I like to carry...even a pair of slippers for those long hours in the air. We travel a lot and this will be one of the bags I will use. Then switch to a smaller bag when we arrive at destination.
I purchased the teal Ostrich. I received it yesterday and returned it this morning. This was a horrible bag. Very heavy, handles are too short, cheaply made, very hard material. The only thing that I liked was the color. Felt like I had a cooler on my shoulder. I would not purchase this handbag if I were you. Spend the money for the better product. I got what I paid for.
Each Had Flaws
I loved the look of this bag and ordered it in the cognac, brown, and ruby. I liked the ruby the best, but it was so lopsided, it would fall over, obviously a serious defect that should have been caught. The design was poor, as the front strap kept falling down. I loved the look, but maybe needs to be redesigned. I hated to, but sent them back the next day.
I purchased this bag in the teal ostrich. The color and details of the bag are very nice. It seems to be very well made and I've been using it for about a week. It runs on the large size (perfect size would be 13" x 10" and longer handle straps), but I am enjoying using it. I would recommend this bag, and I may purchase another one in a different color at some point.
If only the strap drop were longer or it had the detachable long strap this one would be a winner. Strap drop should not be less than 11 inches to allow for winter coats.
PLEASE make more bags with the 3 sections inside and one or even two pockets outside. We need bags with organizational capability.
So glad I did!!!!!!!
I saw this handbag back in January when it aired and I loved it and wanted to get it. But I got sidetracked and ordered other items. Well I finally received this in the mail today and I really love this bag. Ordered the pewter ostrich and it is a very rich gray with a littlle sheen so it doesn't look too dark. Nice size inside and out and the hardware is nice also. Only thing I understand now what another reviewer said about the flap once I took out the stuffing inside the left side of the flap does not lay totally flat. But maybe once I fill it up with my things it will be okay. Anyway love this bag, can't wait to carry it!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the Ostrich!
I got this in the Gray Ostrich! I love the style, the price and the material! It really is so cute and outside my usual large more floppy choice, but I knew or hoped I would love this one and I did and DO! Great Bag!
I order this in Cognac and I really like the color and the feel of the bag. Love all the campartments and the zipper on the outside. I like it so much I'm going to order another color.
Not For Me
I wanted to love this bag. I read all the reviews and thought, "Okay this is the bag". I do like the shape, the color (I got pewter), and the structure of the bag. What I did not like about the bag is the industrial looking zipper on the front of the bag, one side of the flap would not lay down properly, and I had to really 'work' at getting it fastened. Just not up to par.
Everyone loves it
I got the Pewter color, and it's gorgeous. I'd been looking for a gray colored bag, but they always seemed sad and kind of dirty. This is almost silvery, just the most perfect color. And people can not stop grabbing it, and saying how beautiful it is. Perfect size, nicely organized, has that great structure that stays standing up when you set it down. And the price cannot be beat. Am considering which color to get next!
