A214889 - Muxo by Camila Alves Crinkle Lamb Leather Crossbody Bag
Oh my goodness
Sadly, I opened the box and thought, "What the . . ." It didn't look anything like what is displayed. Though the execution of the bag is quite good, the leather and fringe are ghastly. The leather is so shiny it looks like it's polyurethaned. And the fringe!? Oh my goodness. It looks like a child's craft project. Limp, not enough tendrils to give it a whoomp. I so wanted to love this bag. My quest for the perfect purple bag continues. So sad . . . off it goes to QVC. :-(
wheres the snap
Lived the high quality leather and lining. however, no snap clisure. it appeared to be a magnet which wpuld npt have been secure.
sadly, had to return
UNIQUE LEATHER -- GORGEOUS!!!!!
I bought this purse in purple and I LOVE IT....The leather is crinkly, but that is what I love about it. It has character....It's has that something special that I look for - a uniqueness that oozes taste, sophistication and well travelled. I have had many, many designer handbags and feel this one compares with all of them in an understated, good taste way...
I have been waiting for Camila to make a smaller handbag and this is perfect! Just rec'd it today and already it's my favorite. The crossbody strap is perfect for me (I'm 5'4") and I didn't even have to adjust it. I love the leather smell/don't know what some of the others are talking about w/a bad smell. I ordered the black one and I will keep looking to see if the tan one becomes available.
If you love 'different' kitchy & boho items--YES!
If you always color within the lines and never like the unusual, then you might not like this. Here are the pluses:
Soft, lightweight material with a nice long adjustable strap that stays on the shoulder and doesn't fall off every 20 seconds. LOVE! Boho style that is unusual & hip. I adore Camila Alves' line, and here on QVC it is a lot more affordable.
received this bag in purple yesterday....i am wondering if this particular bag did not go through QC....it is stiff, crinkly and shiney definately not soft and pliable like lamb skin. i have watched the video of this bag several times and this bag is not like the bag shown on tv and the raw edges surprise me, just cut edges not finished. this bag is probably made by hand not machine so if you are looking for relatively "crude" handmade look in workmanship you will appreciate this bag. sorry but people need to know what they are buying for this high price. not bmak or dooney quality.
Worst Handbag Purchase
Unfortunately I have to agree with the previous poster. I ordered the black and also the purple and was quite disappointed considering so many positive reviews. Used the black one once and part of the stitching on the strap unravelled. There wasn't any free shipping at the time I purchased so after the shipping and return charges for both handbags I learned a very costly lesson. I will stick with Dooney & Bourke or B. Makowsky in the future.
What a disappointment!
This line appeared to have great reviews across the board. Although I never saw a presentation I thought I would try a bag from the line. Appears that my opinion is quite different than others. Normally a large bag is my preference but I seem to be running out lately with only wanting the necessities for a day of errands so I decided to get this home. My attraction was the size and the fact that I like edgy bags with a certain "small something" to give it a second look.
One reviewer called it "earthy." I can understand the use of the word when describing the bag but in my opinion it was just downright horrible workmanship in every aspect.
I bought both the purple and the black and the accuracy of the bag being a real "true black" and the purple being a subdued eggplant hue is where the beauty of the bag ends. It is soft and I'm sure it is lamb leather but it is not pretty leather.
I know fine bags and that is not saying that the other reviewers don't but this bag had so many cons for me and basically would be embarassed to wear it. The leather was not matched...one section was on the smooth side stitched next to another that had much more of a textured (actually looked shrunken and then stretched looking but I'll be nice). The edges of the strap had that "raw look" which only made it limp and appear poorly finished rather than intentionally designed that way. When a designer wants to leave an unfinished look to the edges of any bag a clear glaze is usually used to stay true to the look they have in mind but with the necessity to provide a bag that has good workman ship. The corners of the bag had a slight loss of color which also didn't lead one to believe that it was intentional more like it had been laying around on the bottom of your closet and you've owned it for a couple of decades and decided to pull it out. I'm not even going to continue because I think you get my point. It was on clearance at just under $100 and with all honesty I may have given it a second thought it if I saw it at a garge sale with a $10 price tag. The line does seem to have some other eye-catching designed bags but since this was in the same price point before clearance I don't think I would try another.
Great Everyday Bag
Been looking for a bag like this for ages. Just big enough for everyday use. Holds a walletbe, ereader, large keychain, cell phone, lip gloss, mints, tissues. If I need to use a larger tote this bag fits nicely into it. I have the black, the leather is soft , well made and I detect no smell. I am thrilled to bits with this bag.
Love this unique boho purse!
I had a hard time getting the color I wanted (dark gray) but finally one day I saw it online and I jumped on it! It did take a little while to ship, but it was worth the wait! It's such an earthtly-looking purse. The color is not quite "dark" gray, it's more of a light gray/tan/taupe color. It goes with both black and brown outfits because it picks up the color it's next to. I LOVE it! It's a great size as well and fits all the necessities and then some! This is my new everyday purse and I couldn't be more pleased!
Love, Love, Love this bag
This is my first Camilla bag - the styling is great, the size is roomy enough for the essentials - well constructed - light interior so that you can easily find things in it.
Magnet closings on an outside pocket and on the purse closure flap. Zipper pocket
inside is roomy and there are 2 additional open pockets for maybe a phone and
a notepad. The crossbody fit is great - perfect length strap for me, but it is
adjustable. I bought a black one, but would purchase the tan too if that were
available. I didn't notice an unpleasant odor like some people mentioned here,
but there is the smell of leather - which I like. You can't go wrong with this bag.
I think I'm going to buy a couple more for Christmas gifts for my daughters.
LOVE THE LEATHER!!
I MISSED THE PRESENTATION ON THIS BRAND BUT SAW IT ON THE WEBSITE AND JUST HAD TO GIVE IT A TRY. I'M NOT A SMALL BAG PERSON BUT I GOT THIS IN BLACK, INTENDING TO GIVE IT AS A GIFT, AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. I SHORTENED THE HANDLE AND SAT ON THE COUCH WATCHING TV AND COULDN'T STOP FEELING IT. I DO WISH IT WAS 2 INCHES WIDER ALL THE WAY AROUND, BUT I WILL MAKE IT WORK AND WILL PROBABLY BUY ANOTHER AS A GIFT. WISH THEY HAD THE SADDLE COLOR. I HAVE ORDERED ANOTHER BAG BY MUXO AND HOPE IT'S NOT TOO LARGE!! I REALLY LOVE THE MAGNETIC CLOSURES ON THIS AND HAVE TO HAVE THE OUTER POCKET AND IT FITS A LOT. LOVE IT!!
