B. Makowsky Vintage Leather Convertible Crossbody Bag
Great bag color not so much
Liked the style and size. Unfortunately the color was more gold then the tan I was hoping for so I returned the bag. More colors would be great.
Not up to Makowsky quality
Usually love Makowsky purses, but this does not live up to expectations. The organization is great, but after using for just a short time the leather looks terrible. Vintage doesn't begin to describe the awful faded look.
I really like the size and organization of this purse :)
If you're looking for a great big bag that screams "designer money bag" and looks like the latest style, this is not the bag for you. But if you don't carry a lot of extra stuff, but you do carry a checkbook wallet and some other things plus makeup, and you want organization and versatility, this is just the bag want! I'm so glad I ordered mine! More colors please.
Love this bag!
Highly recommend this beautiful bag. I bought the taupe color and it is even more lovely in person. Cannot wait for spring and summer to arrive! Leather is amazingly soft. Very well made and versatile bag.The tassel dresses it up and magnetic closure is very secure. I do not see much falling out of this bag if it were accidentally tipped over.
Everything about this bag I love..got it in brown..love the from zip compartment, I use that as my make-up bag with extra odds and ends..this is a roomy bag and not heavy..YES...loving it..will get this in other colors..wish there even more then the few we are seeing..
I have three of this bag even though I usually gravitate to the larger sizes. What appeals to me first in any bag is organization. this has so much of that; I often grab it for quick outings because it's so easy. every pocket has a purpose that I can access blindfolded. I'm trying hard not to get the remaining colors in the off chance this comes back in spring with different leather, texture, or colors. glove leather? spring pastels? pleeese?
The Black Leather is a Little Different
I chose this particular bag for a couple of reasons; the crossbody strap and the zipper pocket on the outside. I have a Kindle Touch that I take with me everywhere and it fit very nicely in the zippered pocket. However, I don't know if it's just the black leather, or if it's like this with all the colors, but I found the leather to be a bit unattractive. It isn't soft or smooth at all like leather normally is. Plus, it has a kind of reflective shiny finish that makes it appear as though it's not even leather. Nothing about it says "vintage" to me. It seems to be a very nice handbag otherwise. There are lots of pockets, the inside is very attractive, and the magnetic closure seems pretty strong.
Another Great Bag
This is my 4th Makowsky bag. It is another great design. Smaller footprint but full of storage. I walk with a cane and need the crossover bag. This one is the perfect size and great leather. Happy camper here.
I just got my new purse, and I'm delighted. It's a nice medium size with plenty of pockets to organize things. But, best of all for a plus size gal, the strap is long enough to wear crossbody. I will be using this as my everyday purse for a long time.
I own several B Makowsky bags and usually have very good luck with them. This bag is very well designed. Great for travel. This handbag holds alot and the crossbody design keeps your valuables safe. The outside zippered pocket is very useful for holding a small camera when you are on vacation. I purchased it in latte, but note that the vintage leather is not as soft and pliable as some other bags. My only disappointment is with the stitching on the outside of the bag. It opened up after two weeks of use, but I like this so much, I will have it repaired by a shoemaker. Would purchase again.
I ordered this in taupe "as is" and it arrived in perfect condition with a dust bag. It is the perfect size and has great function. I keep my large wallet in the zippered section and it is secure. There's a place in the magnetic body of the bag for my reading and sun glasses, datebook and all the essentials that I carry. Love that the strap is all leather, convertible and that my iPhone fits nicely in the outside pocket. The leather is beautiful and soft
