Rated 4 out of 5 by grapefruitmoon Fantastic Bag Overall
I've been searching for a new bag and this one is ALMOST perfect. It's such a cute bag and the perfect size for me. It's large enough to hold a brush, book, and a (big) sunglasses case in addition to basics (wallet, phone, keys, etc) but not large enough to hold every emergency kit. It has a lovely shape and lots of pockets. The pocket situation is a bit unique - the side panels are pockets with a zipper on top. The central pocket is closed with a magnetic clasp across the center. The center portion does not close all the way, so it's pretty convenient for things you want easy access to.
Here are areas it could be improved:
Shoulder strap is a bit thin. A thicker strap would make for more comfortable wearing.
Structure - the leather is soft (generally a good thing) but the tradeoff is that the bag's shape is more malleable than I would like it to be. I like my bags to have a big more angle and structure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sukiecee Everyday bag with class and well made
I wanted a classic bag that I could use everyday, not too big but definitely not too small. I am 5' 4" so I didn't want it to overwhelm my frame and wrist. It is perfect. The leather is great quality. Pebbled yet soft. Yet it keeps its shape and structure. Love the dual pockets. I keep my wallet in one. The middle fits my ipad and some books.The handles are well made, and the adjustable strap can be made small enough that it can hange nicely (but not too long) while I carry it on my wrist, arm crook, or down by my side. I also love the hardware and the way the strap attaches to the side loops, very nicely done. If you are on the fence, let me help you jump to the other side. This bag is a beauty.

This satchel is very appropriate for travel or if you are someone who needs to take a lot to work. It elegantly carries my scarf, papers, magazines, essentials and securely holds my wallet etc in the zippered sections. I like that you can tuck a clutch bag in for luncheons or a dinner appt/date and still have plenty of room for other things.

I have been looking for a long time to find a classic work appropriate handbag and this one is it! I am very impressed with the quality of the materials, the well thought design of the functionality (multiple pockets, feet on the bottom, quality zippers and handles/straps) and enough details to keep the bag classic yet current. The only minor flaw, as one other reviewer mentioned, is that I had expected the base of the handbag to have more structure to hold its shape; however it only sags slightly if you are not over packing. Overall, it is a lovely handbag that will carry well throughout all seasons and transition from work to casual outfits.

looking for a bag that was good looking but didn't overwhelm me... understated color and I loved the fact that I could carry it on my shoulder if I loosened the handles! Sometimes my hands are full and that was a nice surprise. Pretty hardware and a quality item! Also, the bottom has protection...all good!
