Rated 4 out of 5 by like this bag but its big Even though you can make this back thinner since its convertible and you can zip up the sides, and even though it folds over it is big for me at 15 X 15. Its like a big square. Although I really like it when its folded over. I got the black and would also order the ivory and tye-dye python but I'm not yet sure if I'm keeping the black one yet. The strap is nice and long for crossbody use and is also comfortable on the shoulder but to get in and out of the bag you have to unfold it. I think the design idea behind this bag is great but I only like it folded over and not as a big square tote lol. I wish it didn't have the smaller handles. Who would carry this bag that way - as a big square? I like that it has a zipper top closure. Also the inside lining of my bag is also crunchy. Now I've ordered other bags of Aimee's and the inside lining was not crunchy but I returned them due to their large size. I'm not a big bag gal. The leather is soft and nice and the black bag is edgy and rocker chic. Undecided due to large size. P.S. I've ordered another one of her bags in the watermelon and I found it to be too orangy of a red. I'll bet the ivory in this bag is beautiful. 10-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Size and Versatile I bought this Convertible Messenger Bag in the black. Perfect size, love everything enough to give it 5 stars. I would love to buy the watermelon color as well. The only thing that could have been better would have been the lining, it is well made but the fabric is not the best choice. I do hope Aimee makes more of her bags with the silver hardware, it does contrast beautifully with the black color and gold is just too dressy for some of us casual gals. 07-30-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING COLOR + HARDWARE I got the tie dye python print, which has beautiful gold hardware/trim. This bag is oh so versatile and just a showstopper. I love carrying a lighter bag for summer with a little pop...this definitely has that AMAZE factor!! I was a little worried that the messenger bag would be too big for my small frame, but with all the function/zippers, the size is just right. I'm looking forward to more designs from Aimee!! 04-26-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice, but..... Mine arrived damaged which is why I gave it 3 Stars. Thus, I Sent it back and decided to go back to B. Makowsky and or Dooney & Bourke as their bags always arrived in TOP Condition! This is a lovely bag, shame it was in such sad shape, condition wise or would have kept it, also wasn't about to re-order in case I got another lemon and besides the B. Makowsky bag I replaced this one with turned out fine. Other than my experience, I'd try it, perhaps you'll have better luck than I did. 04-01-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by LOVE / HATE LOVE THIS BAG! I got the watermelon. The design, leather quality, organization, versatility and style are all great. BUT, the lining is a plastic-like polyester which I personally HATE! Every time I open or close the bag, the lining actually sounds crunchy! A bag of this quality deserves a better quality lining like Dooney, M.Kors or B.Mak. Every time I open the bag and hear that crunchy lining, I tell myself I should return it. I have a week to decide but I'm almost sure it's going back :-( I would recommend this bag to anyone who doesn't consider the quality of the lining as an important and integral function of a designer bag. 03-25-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wow! This handbag is a winner. However, I am giving it 4 stars because the light python colored leather tends to pick up dye from rubbing up against blue jeans as I carry it. Also, I am not sure the finish will hold up, as it seems like suede that will wear off. That being said, this handbag is well thought out in organization and versatility of carrying it. The zippers open and close with ease. I am not a big fan of the zipper along the bottom, that can be opened up to allow more room in the bag, as it catches on things when opened. The hardware is beautiful and the bag is lightweight. The inside pockets are well positioned for ease of access and the lining is of very good quality. I had never owned a bag by this designer, and now I am sure this will not be my only one. 03-21-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by Watermelon is more like pumpkin I purchased this because I wanted a great red bag.....I thought "watermelon" was red. Anyway the color is closer to orange than red. Jury's still out on whether I keep it or not. Also I'm not an "over your arm" girl, more an "over the shoulder" girl, this bag is a little busy for me, lot of straps and zippers. That said, it's very versatile and innovative. The hardware is great, a little edgy. Bag is not too heavy for the size. The leather is great quality. And zippers function easily. Bottom line, this bag is very thoughtfully designed and a real eye catcher. 03-20-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by INNOVATION + DESIGN = A+ (Aimee) This is the most uniquely designed bag that I've ever seen. It really can be successfully carried FOUR different ways plus the bottom expands. Highly functional and simply beautiful. I got the watermelon for a pop of color this summer and it was love at first sight. Just ordered it in the black. Wish I would have gotten the tie-dyed python to match the AK wallets I ordered. Love this discovery! 03-16-13
