A219331 - B.Makowsky Glove Leather Shoulder Bag w/Tassels& Zip Front
Not a good value
I have to say that for the over $200. price tag it is so not worth it. Looks cheap (there seems to be a thick padding of some sort behind the leather) the strap doesn't sit right on your sholder (turned), the fringe cheapins it, and the lining is dark so it's hard to see anything. I could find several other purses for half the price and get a better looking bag of better quality. The only good thing is the size, truly a medium sized bag. Worth $200.00? No way! B.Makowsky must think that since his name is on it we'd buy it at any price. Back it goes.
I ordered this in the black, and while very nice, great leather,has some structure , the skinny fringes make the bag look silly. In my opinion, there should either be thicker fringes, shorter fringes, or no fringe at all. Because the fringe hangs below the bag, and is so thin, it reminds me of rats tails. A potentially great bag is totally spoiled by this one issue.
I have to say that this handbag is perfect in every way for me!The 2 front zipper pockets are small yes,but they are the perfect size for this bag and for me too.I have to always carry my asthma inhaler and my Advair disc with me and now I can keep them in the 2 front pockets(1 in each pocket) where I can get access to them really quick without having to dig for them.The zippers glide smoothly too.I also love the cell phone pocket he puts on the back of most of his bags.I got this bag in black but would love to see this one in a spring-summer purple.
I love B.Makowsky bags! Not too fond of the lining color, too much taupe for me and too dark.
Glam & Functional!
I love this bag, it is my first ever B Makowsky purchase and believe me it will not be my last. I got it in the indigo and it is so soft and large enough to carry all the things a woman needs. Some say it isnt big enough but I think its plenty big-its a medium sized bag with lots of storage pockets. The shoulder strap is comfortable and cute. I love the tassles too! LOVE LOVE LOVE, get it now, you wont be disappointed! Would love it in a Pink or Dark Green color too QVC! Thanks!
the saturation of color is perfect. I love my new blue bag Bruce thanks! I may get the light color in the near future. I also love the strap on this one..its truly what i was looking for. i understand that some bags have snap mag closures like this one but i prefer a zipper..still love it.
Finally, not too heavy when loaded up
I have tried many of B Mak bags but when I loaded them they were just too heavy and I returned several. This one finally is not as heavy empty and the pockets are just right for me..The medium size is good for me..and love a one handle bag..stays on shoulder better..This bag will serve me well.
Just got my bag, beautiful but it's not 14" on top, that is the bottom measurement, the shape is like a triangle with the top cut off.
I wanted to use for a work bag for work but the top is only 10" or so can't put in legal pads or regular size either.
It would be great if the opening length measurements could be listed.
THE PERFECT HANDBAG!!!
Speaking as a handbag addict, this bag is just great!!! The leather is so soft....size is just right--strap drop says 10" & I usually prefer an 11" drop. But since there's only one strap--which I LOVE too--have always thought a 2nd strap is a nuisance--it seems like a bigger drop. I got it in indigo, and the color is so pretty & can be a good neutral....since I live mostly in jeans anyway. But the indigo really is a good shade that won't clash with any color!!! I love Makowsky bags pretty much always. But I'm really impressed with the beauty & comfort of this one!!!
I ordered one in nutmeg and one cocoa. Ever so soft is the Glove leather and is the only kind for me.I use purse organizers in my purses and try to keep my purses on the light side. I like the bags that stand up and have a nice lining. (Some of us don't like the animal print.) Some of us would rather have a shoulder bag which means a longer strap than they've been providing us. This bag could have two straps, one long and one short. QVC R U LISTENING?
I purchased this bag in black. It is incredibly soft to the touch and has that great smell of leather. Granted, like the other reviewer, I feel the bag seems smaller in person than it did during the presentation. But there is enough room to carry my wallet, cosmetic bag, medication, other items AND a bottle of water. I love the thick shoulder handle. It stays on your shoulder and is comfortable. AND I am getting alot of compliments on the bag. People like the hardware, the tassels, and the lining.
REALLY love this size!!
I bought this for myself in the cocoa w/my easy pay on request. I think the size is perfect for my needs. Plenty of room for all my junk but not too big. Tired of the big bags that flop all over the place. Really appreciate the feet on the bottom. Hope all bags will have that in future. I do think the magnet could be stronger; doesn't seem as strong as on my other B. Mak bags, but it's fine since I'm pretty careful w/my stuff. The strap is just the right length & has extra padding which makes it stay on my shoulder better. I find lots of purses slip off my shoulder due to my hair! I wish it came in more colors tho. I would buy it again in true pink or a grape w/a green satin lining instead of the animal print.
