B. Makowsky Sun Washed Croco Embossed Leather Hobo Bag
Love the design & Sun Washed Croco Leather!!!
I got this is the black when it was a OTO and love the 3 pockets and the slim design. This is great to hold a kindle or IPAD. I don't like bags that are so thick that they stick out, this conforms to my body. No bulk at all. I was debating about ordering it in the metallic clay, but went with the black. I like it because it has charcoal highlights. I still was interested in the metallic clay so when the smaller crossbody was offered (A230953) I got it in the clay. It's gorgeous. I hope Bruce does this sun washed croco in more colors, it's so pretty!
I just love the new Metallic Clay color. This is my second and on the croco it has a iridecient cast which picks up any color you are wearing. The bag would be perfect if it had a long crossbody strap. So...I 'borrowed' the long strap from my other metallic clay (tho not croco) and created MY bag as I need it. Whoo Hoo.
I just received this bag today and started using it. I love it. It's so soft and the Sea Breeze color is perfect for spring/summer. Nice job Bruce!!!
I want the Coral one next.... Best bag EVER!!! Wish I had of pick up 2...
Not as pretty in person
I watched the online video and fell in love with the bag. They said it was sun washed but the colors still looked vibrant. in person it is underwhelming and the strap is not soft or supple and squeaks. The other reviews are also correct in that it does not feel like leather. As much as I want to like that bag it just isn't a keeper.
I love this bag!
I love the look of this bag and the organization! Unlike some of B Makowsky bags, this is not heavy at all. Actually, I only have one other and it is a little heavy for me. The zippers are easy to open and close with little effort. I like having the 3 large comparments. Fits nicely on my shoulder...just love it.
I do have to agree with one of the reviewers though, it does not seem like leather. I am sure it is, but it is definitely different, but I still love the bag.
The first thing I noticed when opening the plastic was the overwhelming scent of new tires...I thought this was a leather bag??? Then I got it out of the plastic and to be honest, to me it doesn't feel like leather, soft yes, but spongy like a man made pleather. The next problem for me, is the color. I expected washed out but, the blue is a little mint green. I did give the bag two stars because the hardware is stunning and I LOVE the layout and the new lighter lining. I only have one other B. Mac handbag to compare it to, and I have had it for a year and a half, but it way exceeded all of my expectations and still does. This bag, bottom line, is a disappointment.
This bag is spacious with lots of compartments to keep me organized. I got the light blue. It's beautiful. TV doesn't do this bag justice. If you carry a handgun, the front zip pockets are perfect!
Beautiful Bag and Hardware
Got the seabreeze blue and the hardware really makes this bag. Just beautiful!! Love it!! Would love in more colors!! The blue is just gorgeous. Really soft leather. Very soft!! Incredible bag!! Great buy!!
