Luxe Rachel Zoe Lamb Leather Satchel with Tassel Details & ZipperPockets
I tried, but a no go....
Well, the idea of this bag is terrific, but somehow the execution is just not a $200 bag on clearance. I have quite a few bags in this price range, and this one is really sub par. There were flaws in the leather on one side so that is reason enough alone to return it. But overall, this leather had several divets in it from being in a box, and places where it was rubbed or scratched off and you could see white underneath which means the leather just isn't good quality and wouldn't last at all. Yes, it's very very soft and the style of this is terrific, awesome hardware, but not at all a $200 bag that should get better with time. Maybe $100 you could overlook the flaws in this. Sorry, I really wanted a RZ bag :-(
Softest Leather Ever
I was fortunate to get this handbag on sale with easy pay.
I could not believe how soft the leather was.
Unlike some other folks who have written reviews, the tassels on my bag were wrapped and straight upon arrival and there is no conflict between tassels and zippers.
These are the first metal zippers that do not cut my hands because they were scratchy.
Love all the pockets, inside and out.
I do not treat my bags gently. I throw them, drop them wherever, etc. So far, this is not scratched or ripped, and still looks like it came right out of the box.
Agree that the fabric lining could be of higher quality- cotton would be nice. I hope the poly lining holds up. Also agree that another notch or two on the shoulder strap for shorter women would make it just about perfect. Four stars because of these.
In any case, this is the softest leather I have ever felt- in any product.
I love this bag...the leather is a good quality..very soft. When I received the bag I was a little concerned about the shoulder/crossbody strap. I thought it was to wide and stiff. I have been using the bag for about a week and the strap has softened. This was my only concern. For the price this is a beautiful bag. Has the look of a bag that would cost a lot more. Lots of organization and I love the tassels. Very chic bag!!
Not for Me
I LOVE the leather, it is sooooo soft, but there are many other problems. The bag is too deep from top to bottom and I can't for the life of me figure out why it's called a satchel. DOES NOT fit THAT profile. The tassels take it to another place - where you feel like you need to be dressed all in leather and on the back of a really big, really noisy motorcycle. The tassels are constantly getting caught up in the zippers, I agree that the wide shoulder strap is nice, but, it needs to narrow down more so it could be tightened up more. When tightened to the smallest is still too long to be a shoulder bag. Definitely not a good selection for petite women.
makes a statement without being obnoxious
I really like this bag. For me, it is nearly perfect.
My problem with really high end bags is the lack of pockets. This bag LOOKS and FEELS like a bag that would cost much more, however, it has pockets. It does hang a bit odd as a cross body, depending upon how you have it filled but, I use 'cross body' for function/security and in those moments, I really don't care. It looks beyond fantastic holding it on your forearm with the smaller handles, I like the way the larger strap hangs when you do that.
It makes a statement without being obnoxious. I think the size is pretty good, it isn't like those obnoxiously oversized purses you can loose track of everything in - it's "Managable" - It isn't heavy, but it has substance. It is lightweight empty, but not SO lightweight you can't feel it - I like the weight.
I initially got it in the merlot color but it was (and still is) on wait list. I really hope it comes in - I ordered it in the Grey and I swear it came over night almost! Very Quickly! I was "ok" with the grey, but then I got a look at it in just the right light - it is a really pretty shade of grey and I have never had a grey handbag before, so I am happy with it (and I get a lot of compliments on the color - I guess you just don't expect it - above all, this grey doesn't look dirty).
Still, I REALLY hope this comes in the merlot olor off wait list! It would be so worth it to have a second one (and I really don't want an other black handbag).
For the price, on clearance, can't beat it for the quality -
This is a very "me" sort of purse, as in, if I designed a bag for myself, it would be very similar to this.
Love Love Love
I am a purse snob and let me tell you I LOVE this! I get nothing but compliments on this! Get it, you will love it!
I wanted to love it
I really wanted this bag. I have been searching everywhere for the perfect cross-body, big bag. This one had great features, I love the tassels and the leather.
But the bag just didn't hang right, it looked sloppy. I kept trying to put large things at the bottom so that it would hold its shape a little and nothing worked. I returned the bag.
I also purchased another Rachel Zoe bag at Neiman's and that one also didn't hang right. I love her, but I think that she has some design flaws in her bags. I returned that one too. :(
My Favorite Bag
Recently bought this in black. The leather is so soft and supple. It's roomy and easy to organize. Thanks Rachel Zoe for this beautiful lamb purse.
What a great bag, Luscious Leather - Lots of zippered pockets
One of the best designs, the strap is so comfortable, does not
dig into the shoulder, Love It
Super Functional Slouchy Bag
This bag was an early birthday present from my husband (obviously he took a look at my QVC Wish List). When I opened the box, I couldn't contain my excitement; I was overjoyed that I now owned another Rachael Zoe bag!
The bag is a great size; not too big, not too small. It easily fits my iPad, smartphone, keys, wallet, and other every day essentials. I love all the pockets! I used to have a problem with piling all my things onto one compartment; I hated when my keys would scratch up against my phone and leather wallet. It has a lot of function! Lamb leather feels nice to the touch, and has an amazing strap for added support. Very comfortable; it'll be my new on-the-go bag. Chic and trendy, too. I love the slouchy look!
Great bag to buy while on clearance with the Easy Pay option. However, I don't see myself making the purchase at its original $266 price (for that amount, I'd lean towards a D & B Florentine purchase).
I love this bag, but not (as much in love) with the interior. The interior is very functional, however, it's not as visually appealing as the outside; doesn't have the look of a high-quality piece.
Nevertheless, I love, love, love, my chic, functional, slouchy bag! Thank you, Rachael!
Classic Satchel with a twist
I love this bag. It is soft. Perfect size. The tassels add a nice touch. I have no problems with the tassels getting caught in the zippers. The lining could be better, took off 1 star. I love that this is crossbody and thicker near the top of shoulder providing comfort. I can load it up if needed. I wore this all day shopping with my family and removed the strap for a date with my husband. Thinking of purchasing the grey color.
I have been looking for a black leather cross body bag for months and this is by far the nicest one I have seen. The leather is super soft and smooth and looks like it would cost way more than it does. The style is great -easy to get stuff in and out and the pockets on the outside are very functional and deep enough to put phone, keys or whatever. The strap is even all leather and wide so is very comfortable to wear even if your bag is loaded up. No problem with the zippers and everything is high quality high class about this bag. Tons of compliments already! I really want to get the grey or merlot. LOVE IT!!!!
