B. Makowsky Double Zip Top Shoulder Bag with Chain Detail
Love this bag. It's the Perfect mid size.
I love this bag. I don't like a lot of stuff in my bag on an everyday basis, so this bag was perfect for me. Although, I was a little hesitant because the leather didn't look really soft like my other B bags. I was wrong. It was just as soft. I didn't overfill it so it is a perfect size for me, and I love the organization. I purchased a long black leather strap with silver-tone clamps from eBay and put it on this bag. Now I have the versatility to wear with original strap or cross-body. Wish B Makowsky would offer long leather straps in different colors to purchase. Again, Luv, Luv, Luv this bag.
Love this handbag, color and organizing features, HOWEVER, this bag does not hang right and the center pocket falls open. Had the design included two magnetic closures and had been about 2" narrower it would have been perfect. The way it is, it looks terrible! The design was awesome, just not engineered correctly
On The Fence
I received this in the Latte Lizard and I'm very pleased with the color and texture. I like the idea of the two zippered compartments and the middle compartment with the magnetic closure. I just tried transferring the contents of my purse over to this one and it didn't hold everything and when full, the middle magnetic closure area wouldn't close. As a result the shape of the bag was not a pretty site. So my thought is perhaps this purse is more suited as an evening purse when I don't need to carry as much. Now what I have to decide is do I need to have such a costly purse for evening wear? Plus who will really see the purse in the evening? As I said I'm on the fence. I think I'll try it tomorrow night and see how it holds up and If I'm not pleased I'll have to return it.
Pretty in Peony!
I ordered the peony just because I wanted a pop of color and this is by far the prettiest pink. It is not a baby pink or a little girls pink but a nice solid medium pink. I love it. Not sure what the all reviewers are talking about when they talk about the shape of the handbag after all the stuffing is removed. I removed all the stuffing, put in a full size wallet, coin purse, glasses, cell phone, charger, makeup bag and a comb and the shape of this bag stayed the same shape. It didn't sag, it didn't bulge, it looks exactly the way it did with the paper stuffed in it. This bag hold a whole lot of things and I especially like the fact that it has two zipped compartments. I use these smaller bags when I go grocery or clothes shopping and like to organize my receipts and coupons etc. This bag works perfect. It is very light weight and fits nicely on the shoulder without fall off. Love the chain effect which make this bag ideal for young teenagers or gals in their 20's. I"m in my 60's and it looks great on this old gal. Bruce you did it again. I must have 25 of your handbags and never get tired of that glove leather.
Love this in White
This is a rich looking bag. The organization is fabulous. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about regarding the bag when you put stuff in it. I carry a makeup bag, a checkbook, and two coin purses along with a few other things. Mine does not loose its shape nor look goofy when full. It hangs nicely too. The leather is so soft and lightweight yet substantial. I don't have any trouble with it puddling so much that I can't get my things in or out of it as I do with a couple of other of my Bmak bags. Love the chain detail too. The white is a true crisp white. Great for summer and spring. It is so white I am not sure I would wear it in the winter tho.
won't hold its shape
It's big enough to hold all my stuff. The problem, as others have said, is that when it's loaded, it doesn't keep its shape. Although it looks beautiful stuffed with paper right out of the box, it doesn't when it's filled with real contents. The front pocket works well, the zippers work well, and I like the magnet center for things I need in a hurry. But with its lumpy shape, it doesn't look the money. Unfortunately, I didn't return it in time.
1st purchase from QVC
The purse looks exactly as demonstrated, color is true, and the texture is so soft. I have not used it and do not have plans until the Fall. The reviews indicate the purse is not what was expected. So I will have to wait until the Fall and find out for myself. which means I won't be able to return it. This is my 1st purchse from QVC and hopefully it won't be my last.
Disappointed in Color
Absolutely loved this bag in spice on tv. However the color looks nonimpressive ,quite different in person.. Haven't opened it but for sure it sounds too small for me. Will return this.
Cute.....when its empty
Loved the bag the second I saw it. Very very attractive. Great idea with the double zippers and magnetic middle pocket, BUT the moment you put anything in it the bag looks awkward. What I mean is the stuff you put in the outer zipper pockets pull open the middle pocket so it looks pulled open.
So back it goes. Very disappointed. This bag is great if you dont carry much and if what you do carry is thin and miniscule.
Leather is like butter
I liked the bag...but it just didnt hold up to my accessories. Sent back!!
GREAT SMALL BAG FOR BIG BAG GIRL
This is a beautiful bag - awesomely beautiful - this bag carries what I "need" when I need a smaller bag and looks stunning doing it --HOWEVER, it is probably NOT an everyday bag - I agree with the others that the bag does not hold everything I need on a daily basis - packed to the gills, it does not work well --- I am a "big bag girl" and was looking for something a little more refined for certain occassions and had been unhappy with the standard clutch you find out there because you really cannot get anything in those - this bag works for me for this purpose - yes, it is pricey for something you may not carry every day but it is a bag that you will have for years and years - so, If you are a big bag girl who is often disappointed with smaller or other special occasion bags, I recommend you give this one a try - BTW, my kindle fits in the middle compartmnt with a small wallet, pill box, lipstick and iphone in the side pockets without it looking all out of shape - I like it - but if you want this as your everyday, carry everything bag, this is probably not what you are looking for
I loved this bag until - you take the stuffing out. When you put even the thinnest of a checkbook or pocketbook in it, the zippered sides become wavy and misshapen. It doesn't help that the middle section is held together only by a magnet. It can't even hold an eyeglass case. Back it went.
