Luxe Rachel Zoe Lamb Leather Satchel with Tassel Zipper
strapped for style
The overall design of the bag is good: the outside pockets are incorporated into the design. Did Rachel run out of money for the straps? The straps are cheap and detract from the leather details and cut into the shoulder. So I changed the straps to a braided set.Reduce the bag size and save more in her budget for "loops" that are the same quality
Great Design, but...
Soft leather but overall cheap looking. Something I would pay under $100.00 for at the mall. I love the design but can't get past the overall junkie look. Sorry Rachel. :( I will stick with my B Mak bags...never disappointed with the quality for the price there.
Satchel with Tassel Zipper
This is absolutely the softest leather. It feels terrific in my hands. Lots of organization. Exterior and interior pockets galore. The problem is the strap drop. It is too short. It is stated as 10", but the design eats up part of the length so the top of the satchel rides under my armpit. Not at all comfortable. If I had a full 10" above the top of the satchel, I would have kept it and ordered a second one. Instead, I sent the beautiful merlot back. Too bad. If you have skinny-smaller arms, then, I recommend it. If you have chubbier arms, pick a different item.
ALL THE NEEDED FEATURES
I love the wide opening and the placement of all the pockets inside and out. Because of the hue of the merlot, it is a neutral with great color. The structure is nice because it has some body to it. I carry it every day and every where.
The leather on this bag is soft and supple. It has great organization and is much lighter than expected. Best of all, no designer nameplate stuck on. If you are a big bag girl, this is for you. I got the merlot - great color - all are nuetrals.
I am so pleased with this bag! I ordered it in black, since I have plenty of handbags in a range of colors, and I thought the black looked richer online. It is perfect in color, size, and shape. The straps are long enough to allow the bag to ride comfortbly on my shoulder, which is a real plus. And as far as the leather goes, THIS is the way real, quality lamb leather is supposed to look and feel. As a retired retailer, I can tell you that not all lamb leather bags are created equal, but this one is perfect. I also love the organization inside, and the two outside pockets are so nice, plus they are quite secure with TWO strong magnets holding each pocket closed. I can't believe the quality for the price. Thank you so much, Rachel and QVC!!
Though I would just like it, but I LOVE it!
I have tons of B Mack bags but when I saw this, I thought hmm... Mind you, this is such a departure from my normal price point, so I figured I'd try the bag and maybe I'd like it. But if it was just OK, I could always send it back. I LOVE THIS BAG!!! It was roomy enough to carry everything, but has enough pockets and compartments so that I could easily find things super quick. Not heavy at all, which is one of the challenges I have with BMack (still love you though Bruce). I have tried a few of Rachel's things,and to be honest, haven't exactly loved the quality and sent them back,but she HIT IT OUT THE PARK with this one!
There is substitute for lamb leather for softness and weightlessness. Buy this bag. You will pay at least the same price for glove leather or pebble leather and not get the same quality.
Classy - with lots of extra room!!!
Rachael has given us busy, on the go women, a great bag that holds many items while continuing to look stylish! Many bags look overstuffed or half the bag has to be emptied to find an item. Rachael's bag has four big pockets with two, very large inside zippered pockets and slots for cell phone, pens, glasses, etc. The.quality and softness of the lamb's leather is incredible too. I LOVE IT !!! Thanks Rachael!
