A210420 - Liz Claiborne New York Tote Bag w/Stud Accents and Umbrella
The bag looks great, just a bit larger than I had anticipated...but I travel alot so it is very useful for me. Also love that the umbrella comes with it and has it's own compartment.
NICE BAG FOR THE MONEY AND VERY ROOMY. GREAT FOR TRAVELING OR EVEN AN OVERNIGHT BAG. OFFERS A LOT OF ROOM. UNFORTUNATELY, UMBRELLA NOT IN PACKAGE W/ BAG.
Color is way way off
Not a bad tote, but I ordered the khack and the photo on .com sure looked like a stone color - very nice and light for summer. It is actually a very ugly beige - sent back immediately.
This makes a great gift for a person needing a bag for all seasons and reasons. Although it is big the opening is not that big so it is not a great tote to tote! Further as it is not expensive the quality of the workmanship reflects that too. I thought I would have to return it as one of the interior zippers decided not to close but after a little fixing it seems to be working. That was a little scary because I had already transfered everything into it. It does not have card compartments so you have to carry a separate wallet. The reason I went back to a larger bag is I got tired of carrying a bag and two totes, wish me luck.
Big Bang for My Buck
I usually buy all leather bags from B. Makowsky but this bag interested me because of the price and style. The only colors available were ivory and purple BUT great price for a bag that is a fashion statement so I picked the purple. LOVE IT!!!! Lots of room, LOTS of pockets on the outside which is what I look for. I am really glad I got it.
I love this bag. I've had it for a few months now and it still looks like new. I'm very rough on my bags and this one takes a beating well. lol I looked at a few other ones before deciding on this and I'm very happy with the decision I made. My mom saw it the other day and said Oh my gosh, is that your new purse? I love it! Its always great to get that reaction. I'm thinking of getting her one for Christmas.
A little disappointed...
This bag appeared to be very useful and might be for someone who can carry a very large bag. A little too big for me. Unfortunately, returned it.
Wanted this for plane travel. Filled it with what I normally put in my old bag & I could see where the handles were stitched pulling the plastic fabric to the point it looked like it would tear. Might be ok for a light load but won't take filling it up. I did like the shoulder strap plus handles & all the pockets. A great size & shape. I just didn't think it would last for very long. The green color is different. Kind of drab.
Wanted the color and the option of crossbody with a tote but it does not work at all. The color is a dull greenish something. The stud accents are restrained but in the end this bag looks really cheap; not a bargain.
I ordered this bag because it seemed practical and pretty. Well, when I opened the QVC box, the bag had a strong smell like burnt rubber to it. I took the bag out of the box and I was not impressed. The bag off the top look cheap and low quality not to mention the smell. I decided to give the bag a try for a week or two to test it and wow I was in shock! Within 4 days of using the bag, the interior part of the bag lining tore apart! The umbrella broke the same day I used it and the bag just became a wreck within 4 days! The worst bag I have ever purchased ever! Thank you QVC for taking this off my hands!
OK, it's been a couple months since I ordered this bag. I waited to write a review because prior to ordering I read all of the reviews that were posted. I took a chance and ordered it in forrest green. I LOVE IT!!! No, it isn't leather, but yes, it looks like leather. The lining, which people have complained is not sewn into the bag, is a little poofy at first but does conform to the bag with use. It's nice that you can pull it out and clean it. I chose not to use the umbrella and removed it. The little pouch that it was in, at the bottom of the bag, doesn't get in the way at all if the umbrella isn't in it. I really think it's a great bag. The shoulder drop is PERFECT, it stays on your arm. The forrest green is so neutral it could almost be considered a grey with a touch of green. Bottom line don't believe the other reviews the bag really isn't that bad.
AWESOME BAG,BEAUTIFUL FOREST GREEN COLOR
I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS BAG GOT SUCH BAG REVIEWS....YOU SEE, I HAVE COLLECTED PURSES FOR 15 PLUS YEARS, all styles, all brands, clearance bags, expensive purses, & even garage sale steals of the decade finds. THIS SHOULDER BAG IS AWESOME & COMES W/A VERY GOOD UMBRELLA (high winds do nothing to this umbrella, even).Works so well w/my feminine military style zip up ELLE brand jacket, also recvd as an X-mas gift, YEAH, THEY LOOK SO CUTE TOGETHER.
I RCVD THIS TOTE BAG IN THE BEAUTIFUL, FOREST GREEN COLOR, AS AN X-MAS GIFT. EVERY TIME I USE IT I RECEIVE COMPLIMENTS. It feels just like leather, and wears like its the real thing too. I am pretty rough on my purses & this tote STANDS UP TO ALL KINDS OF ABUSE I PUT IT THRU.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND, & I'm just sorry I didn't get it at the clearance price, BUT IT WAS WELL WORTH THE ORIG. PRICE. I believe it will last a very long time, and this was one of my best finds from my husband, as a gift. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, WLD DEF BUY ANOTHER ONE OF LIZ'S BAGS. (wld love to see in a country grey blue color/similar style, as love all the pockets avail. inside & out, esp the zip secret angle pockets on the outside & the STUDS ARE AWESOME...JUST MY STYLE, TKS MUCH FOR THAT).
