Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosesharon Great Classic Bag--Love OrYANY
Just received in Mocha, a unique color as other reviewers agreed; it is a beautiful year-round neutral. The size and profile of the Bella shoulder bag is perfect for me. The leather is good quality throughout. This bag feels lighter to carry (my most recent orYANY bag has a chain strap that while beautiful, adds to the weight), has great organization and fits what I carry every day with room to add those occasional extra items. Smell, as others noted, was present at first but dissipated in less than an hour. The only downside I could find was the shoulder straps are thinner than my other orYANY bags, but there are two straps, the design is good and the adjustability is key to making the straps work. Bottom line: this is a bag of great quality leather, hardware, design, color and will be an everyday workhorse that is a pleasure to carry! orYANY and QVC, please keep this kind of larger bag coming.

Much bigger then I expected across the bottom of the bag. In addition the quality of the leather to me was fair. I returned it.

I've gotten used to the sturdy, beefy leather from Dooney bags over the years so my first impression of this bag was that the leather is very thin and whimpy feeling. Knowing that pebble leather is usually a drapier type of fabric, this was still very thin. I was also disappointed because the leather was wrinkled on the front of the bag so the natural drape that happens looks odd because it drapes awkwardly in the wrinkles. I do love the mocha color as it is very different and I haven't seen any other bags in this shade. I did notice the smell that other reviewers mentioned, but within a day the smell aired out. I think I'll carry this bag for a week or two and determine then whether it's worth the money to keep. Glad I got this on clearance, as with full price this bag would be really overpriced.

I watched this bag for several weeks, but finally jumped off the fence when it went on sale for 5 hours during the midnight sales. Just like other reviews it does have some sort of chemical smell, but mine was not over powering. I really love this bag, and the size is perfect for me. This is now my fourth OrYany bag and I am sure that it won't be my last. I am usually a Dooney girl, but I am now a collector of both brands.

This bag is exactly what I have been looking for. Size, color, hardware, all on point for my personal color palette.I love that the lining matches the dust cover, and it has been modified to match the exterior. I agree though...that smell is over whelming at first. But it airs out fairly quickly. Clearly the item has been packed in plastic for a while.

A very nice looking bag, Mocha color interesting and different. The size perfect: very large, lots of room inside, items inside easy to find. I liked the silver hardware and the pockets inside and out.
The only problem, and totally an insurmountable one, was the smell. Right out of the box on receipt it hit me. As other reviewers have said, tried and tried to keep it, tried hanging in room to air out for a week or more. Never did get to use it. The stink filled the room and never left the bag. Even the enclosed bag to store it in was intensely stinky with an oily, horrible smell. Have never smelled anything like it.
How I wanted to keep the bag but sent it back. I consider the bag to be defective because of the stench and plan on calling customer service to complain.
Rated 5 out of 5 by marceil Great neutral
I bought this in the mocha. I don't like black handbags for fall/winter. I wear a lot of greys, black, and blues and this goes with anything. The mocha is like a pale hot chocolate and could even be used any season. It did have a slight odor, but after two days I only smell the leather. I adjusted the straps to my liking and the magnetic closure is very strong.
I love this bag!
