A222363 - Etienne Aigner Leather Valencia Tote w/Front Pocket&Turnlock
Nice bag - but
The bag is a good size - and the main body is easy to get into. However, the front pocket is extremely stiff and very difficult to put anything in - much less get it out. The front pocket is also 'off' - a couple of friends kept looking at it and then commented that the pocket was not 'straight' like it was sewn just a bit 'off level'. Although it is a nice 'summer' look - I've decided to return it.
I bought this bag for Summer 2012 and put it into service yesterday. The Geranium multi with ivory and tan trim is perfect color blocking for this season. The organization is fantastic. The handles are sturdy and just the right length for over-the-shoulder. The lining coordinates well with the outside. It's lightweight and a great size - not too big, not too small. Best of all, the leather is good quality, and when I set it down, it stands up by itself! I can't praise this design highly enough. I hope QVC continues to carry this line, which has a long history and a very well-deserved reputation for quality!
I couldn't wait to get this to use as my new summer purse. I got the "pink/orange" one, the size is perfect, but the "orange" is a tan and then the body is a beige. Not a clean wihte purse with pink ends and orange front pocket. Its going back
Love it ... but
I love this bag...but, I got caught in the rain and the pink dye ran on my new cream pants. Great lightweight bag with ample space and organization, would be a five-star except for issue with dye.
Love This bag !!! So easy to get things in and out, esoecially at the check out lines. i received the blue and green. It is perfect for tying scarves on the front, I have had so much fun tying different colors of scarves with different pins - it goes with everything. It is a little heavy, but I found out it helps with the straps not falling off the shoulder. i also stand up straighter with this bag - which is a good thing. This is a top quality bag, which I use everyday and it still looks like I just received it. It is perfect to put a long billfold north and south inside, so easy to get to, without it showing or coming out if you drop the purse. The snaps close with such ease, especilly if you are in a hurry, your arm can close it on your shoulder, and you don't have to take time to zip it. It is very secure. So many pockets, easy to hear your phone in busy places, and so easy to get to.
It's a beautiful bag!
My mother had her eye on this for awhile so I bought it for her birthday. She chose the blue/green multi and we both love it!!! The lining fabric is pretty too. The blue is a nice medium navy blue not dark and the green is a gorgeous shade. The bag is medium weight it's not a light weight bag so it will probably be heavy once she puts her things inside but she doesn't care since it's so beautiful!!
I'm so glad I got it for her since it is on clearance and that means once it's gone is gone!! The bag is large. ...almost tote bag size. It's a beauty and I may order one for myself. My sister in law was there when my mom opened her gift and even she said she may order one. We all love it!!
Great bag and great price!!
Nice quality leather bag!
I got the Geranim (pink/cream/orange) and love the bag. It is lightweight. Great details. Aigner did a nice job of color-blocking without making it too trendy. The silhouette is timeless. Bag is a little smaller than I usually carry-- the width is more narrow, but I should scale back on carrying "everything" anyway. A leather bag for under $100 is a great value. Never understood $300-$400 cost of handbags, for what? And I could buy an excessivly costly handbag if I wanted to, but it's the principle with me... Happy with this purchase.
Love This Colorblocking
I ordered this bag in the grass multi. I must say that I like this bag in person even better than on video. The grass green is eye-popping and such a pretty shade. It's not too bright, just right. The navy is not too dark and has a lot of life to it. I partifcularly like the fact that these two colors are on ecru, not white. It tones down the colors. And of course, the trim in cognac (?) helps keep the eye-popping green in check, too. It has a nice amount of wall pockets. I could do without the center zipped dividing pocket because I think it uses up too much space on the interior, and I thought the bag was going to be a little larger than it is. Other than that, I love it! Might think about ordering it in the geranium multi - love orange and pink together!
Love this bag...
I'm not usually a tote person but I fell in love with the color blocking in this bag. Saw it online, then on TV, so I bought it. When I got it I was thrilled -- it's even better in person. Love the size, style and quality of leather. I will be buying the blue also.
Came back for seconds....
I liked this bag so much in the pink I came back for blue.Love the color blocking and they will go with some many outfits...
Nice for the price
I really wanted this color combination to wear with spring/summer outfits. When you're used to B. Mac. and Tig. bags, the leather is stiff - not soft in any sense of the word. But it does hold all my stuff, so it will work for me. It's also lighter in weight that the B.Mac. bags, and the lining is a light color, so you can actually see what's in there, which is not true of BMac. bags.
loved it better in person!
This bag was gorgeous on the tv presentation but after I opened the box the rich color and feel of the leather exceeded my expectations! Made my vacation evan better just to carry it!
