B. Makowsky Python Print Leather Convertible Crossbody Bag
Let me start by saying I have purchased more than 30 bags of Bruce's and have just loved them. When I receved this one in purple, I just loved the print, color, and size. However after my first use, the print seemed to have rubbed off on the front, back, and straps. It just didn't look right. I read some of the reviews and found I wasn't the only one who felt the same. I am returning it as much as I really don't want to, but I'm afraid if I order another one it will do the same. That is why I gave it only 3 stars.
This is my third Makowsky bag. Beautiful iris purple color and texture seems like real python. Roomy to put lots of things inside like a cosmetic case, wallet, keys and full bottle of perfume. I had a real hard time with the zipper, which is why I gave it 4 stars. Other than that, a great anniversary gift from my husband. It was also very trendy to have it go from cross-over bag to a shoulder handbag. Very happy with this bag! It's very well constructed and will last a long time. Maybe as long as my Louis Vuitton bag (which is over 10 yrs old) that still looks brand new. Mr.Makowsky-Keep making beautiful bags and we will all stay loyal!
Beautiful but returned
The leather, size and weight of this bag was exactly what I was looking for. However it was SO disappointing that the zipper was so cumbersome to use requiring 2 hands. The bag comfortably held my full-size wallet, cosmetics, glasses and date book however I got so frustrated with the zipper that I was compelled to return it. I hope BM with bring this bag back with a new and improved zipper. I will be first in line!!
I am a Makowsky purse lover, although usually I go large tote with pockets. As usual I love the color, the leather is soft and luxurious. It looks so expensive. It is small, but surprisingly holds alot. I have my large wallet, a tiny brush, sunglasses, lipgloss, eyecream, nailfile, keys,etc in it. My cell phone fits nicely in the outside pocket. Very nice. Tons of compliments and best thing yet, it doesn't hurt my back. My last Dooney purse was so heavy my arm actually hurt. Had to go lighter. Love Bruce Makowsky, love the lighter but beautiful leather. Keep it up. I'd like to have it in all the colors.
It LOOKS fabulous
However, the zipper closure is EXTREMELY difficult to close. You have to use both hands and hold the zipper tab up while you zip it shut. I love the look of the bag, and
am keeping it in spite of the terrible closure.
I just returned this bag. It has more room than it looks and is a beautiful bag, however I have sent several of B's bags back because of the zipper. If you open the zipper too far you have to dig to get it straightened out to zip back up, or leave the zipper open. If you carry minimal in your bag I guess it would work. As I said before, it is a beautiful bag.
my wife love it it is the right size goes with every think you wear.
Love this bag. Just the right size and I love the python leather. Lining matches bag perfectly. My cell phone fits perfectly in the cell phone pocket. One small small change, I would have liked the pen pocket to be a little deeper. I had to find a smaller ballpoint pen to fit in pocket because the top of my pen kept hitting the zipper when I zipped the bag. Love the tassel on the zipper. Over all very nice quality and am very pleased.
Received this bag in Caramel and while I find most crossbody bags are too small, this one is perfect. Leather is nice and supple, python print is not at all scaly and the caramel color is lovely. Roomy enough to hold full size wallet, make-up bag, keys, etc., Outside pockets roomy as well. Inside slots are lined with the python, and the plain lining is a welcome change from the "fun animal lining". My only criticism is that I wish strap was adjustable, but even so, bag rates 5 stars.
WOW SO VERY PRETTY
I JUST RECEIVED MY CARAMEL BAG .. WOW .. I LOVE IT .. WANTED THE NATURAL BUT IT WAS ON WAIT LIST SO A GRABBED CARAMEL AND IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL IN PERSON GLAD I DIDN'T WAIT :)
Cute, Cute, Cute!
Just received this one in Marigold and I love it! I usually carry super-big bags or little clutches, and I've been giving midsize bags a try lately; this is a perfect size. I also think that this is a really well-done python print; I own a couple of natural exotic skin bags in python and this bag is reminiscent of them. Looks great!
Just Right Size For Short Ladies!
I have this purse in the purple python and it is beautiful! I get compliments every time I go out. I ordered it in black, but I did not like as well.
