Nicole Richie Collection Textured Leather Hobo
Beautiful bag, but functionality a problem
Gorgeous bag, but the front flap pocket simply won't stay closed. With even the slightest weight in the bag itself, when carried the flap comes unsnapped and gapes open - even with nothing in the pocket. Thought I'd found my "perfect bag". Very sad to have to return but QVC was wonderful (as always!).
About the Bag!
This is a wonderful "looking" bag, but poorly designed... the outside pocket doesn't work and I had to make some alterations by hand to it in order to be able to actually use it. If you put anything in the outside pocket heavier than a postage stamp it will come open. I took embroidery floss that was the same color and had to stitch the flap down in two places to stabilize it. If you buy it and intend to actually USE it - you will have to do this or take it to a shoe shop and have it done...just FYI. It is clear Ms. Ritchie designed her bag for looks and not utility....
I really contemplated purchasing this product b/c of the mixed reviews, but decided to try it out when it was on 5 easy pays. I am glad that I did. The bag is supposed to have a worn look. Nicole was on air and she even said that it was supposed to look sort of worn. The leather isn't peeling, it is the way the bag has been dyed, and clearly on purpose. It is a nice large bag and is very comfortable to carry, not to mention as others have said boho chic.
Have to agree with other reviews...
Well, yes, this is Boho chic, great style which is why I've ordered it 3 times, and now I will send it back a 3rd time. The first time I ordered it, it was too expensive and the second time the price was right but the mocha color was dark for summer so I decided to try the neutral. The leather was peeling on the straps, and anywhere leather was touching leather. I will say, the mocha color didn't seem to be peeling at all, but the neutral was terrible. This is a real shame because the style of this bag is so great. The neutral one I received was worse than any "As Is" item I've ever ordered from QVC just fyi. It is going back, with a note to QVC that the product is defective, and hopefully they will remove from inventory all of the bags that are peeling. I would exchange it, but I have a feeling all of this leather regardless of color is going to peel eventually. Not a near $200 bag. Good luck if you order it.
I am loving this bag,
Vey boho chic. Great dressed up or down. Tassel is great! Also a great size and holds everything!
This bag was my first Nicole purchase and because of the very poor quality I will hesitate ordering any other Nicole articles.
I was surprised at how beautiful this bag was when it arrived, due to the poor reviews. For me it's the perfect size with just the right amount of organization. I'd have given it 5 stars, but I do think the quality of leather good have been slightly better. Style, though, is stunning.
Not what i expected !
Im 28 and was so exited when i saw the purse online, It looked like a cute boho purse. But I was more sad to see the bag when i open the box. I expected a bag with good quality leather or at least decent fake leather. It was all the opposite... The leather is super cheap the bag looks like it was beige and it was spray painted with a mocha beige spray can. Not worth the price even on the 5 easdy payment plan. I Return the bag the next day after i received it. Very poor quality........... by ugly leather i dont mean like a vintage use leather quality look, if that was the case i would of loved it. The color was like peeling off the mid section of the inside of the bag.
Not Quality Leather
I ordered this bag in both the natural and the mocha. Haven't got the mocha yet but
most likely will be sending it back. Received the natural and the color on the leather
where it touches other leather parts is pulling off. Really disappointed and the natural
color is an odd color. I immediately didn't like it. The overall design and shape of the
bag is cute and I liked the tassel pull on the zipper. The studded design around the
handle looked cheap to me (just my opinion). I only gave it one star because I liked
the shape and design, other than that ... disappointed.
