Great space, wasn't crazy about shoulder strap.

Great bag, not in great condition

This bag is lightweight and a rich color. It even fit my 13-inch laptop (snugly). Really easy to wear and great for work. Unfortunately this one arrived in poor condition. It had some light spots and looked very used.

Magnets!?

The exterior of this purse was weird. It made uncomfortable when I first saw it. But when I noticed that the rough bumpy leather was actually soft, I warmed up to it. I received a newer purse too, so the top didn't want to fold down in the same way as the photos. I think this purse would break in really well, and get a wonderfully supple texture to it. Also, the magnets were great! Being able to nudge the purse closed was delightful. There was lots of extra room in this purse, and the strap came with an extra padding strap in case you overload the purse a bit. I was tempted to purchase this bag, but it wasn't quite perfect for that high price point.

Great everyday bag

Loved this bag. It's not structured as the photo shows but I liked that. Bonus points because it fit my 13" mac

More brown than burgundy-strap was a little frayed. Not impressed.

Perfect bag holds a lot plus pop of color

I loved this bag so much I never wanted to return it! I rented this as part of my unlimited subscription, it looks small but holds a lot, I used as a book bag. I had 2 softcover text books, a pencil case, small umbrella, glasses case and small planner. It also has a zip pocket on the inside and well as 2 open pockets. The bag can be used as a handbag or a cross body bag (it has a long removable strap). One thing to note is that it does NOT have a zip but is closed by 2 magnets that are pretty strong. Loved this bag, would rent again.

Meh.

Well designed bag but sort of underwhelming. Bag was smaller than I expected and the leather was a bit dull in person. It was fine but nothing to drool over.

Slouchy cool

First off, the bag is not structured at all, as the photo makes it appear. It has no interior framing at all. The leather is very, very soft but sturdy, and the color is a gorgeous reddish-purple pretty much as the photo shows. It's a great medium-size bag for everyday casual use.

I loved this bag!!! It was a bit smaller than I expected and smaller than what I normally carry but very cute. Would love to have something like this in my closet for every day!

Loved this bag!

Initially when I rented this bag I thought it was much bigger, and would be able to fit my laptop. The bag is too small, but I ended up loving it. It's a deep purple, which was fun and different.

loved carrying it b/c of the messenger style strap. Easy when you have kids to carry too!

Loved the color and the soft leather. Looks expensive.

This bag is beautiful and versatile.

I had a pretty hard time sending this one back. This bag is a beautiful color and texture, and has the perfect amount of shiny, gold hardware. It is large enough to stash all of the essentials, including a notepad and tablet. I wore it to networking events, running errands, and on a family vacation, and found that it fit with all of these occasions perfectly. I particularly liked how the overall look of the bag managed feel harmoniously both classic and edgy. I do have a few complaints, which is why I docked one star from my rating. First, I found it to be a little too floppy; I thought that some more structure would have worked better with the shape of the bag. Second, I didn't like the way that the top of the bag closed. The bag closes with a magnet, but only looks right if folded to one side, and it is very difficult to figure out when on the move. Quite frankly, I will miss this satchel and will definitely try more bags from Elizabeth and James.

Cute, not as structured as it appears

I got this bag as part of my unlimited membership. I paired it with the Elizabeth and James Bebe coat. I think it looked really cute for a work look. I received a lot of compliments. My only complaint is that the bag wasn't as structured as I expected it to be. However, it was very roomy and looked nice.

Great color, quality and details!

The color really makes this bag, and the cobbled texture of the leather is lovely too. It beautifully brings out the trim on the Free People Henna jacket, and looked nice with my old, old cognac Frye boots, too. In some of the photos, the bag looks quite brown, but it's really more of a rich blackberry color, just gorgeous for cold weather in fall or spring. Wore it with dark jeans, a chambray dress, and bone leggings.

Great fall/winter bag

This purse was great. I was very tempted to buy it and I kept it for almost a month. It looked very nice and it was really roomy. I carry a ton of stuff with me and it fit very well inside. I also really appreciate that it was lined.

Great everyday purse, but didn't have as much structure to it as I'd hoped. Still very nice and I'd likely use again.

Adorable, great every day piece

This purse was the perfect size (held all my necessities), color, and shape. I received tons of compliments and wish I could have kept it! The color is perfect for fall/winter - a muted burgundy/eggplant. There are also a ton of pockets inside for easy storage.

Sad to give it up!

I rented this purse from my Unlimited subscription and was sad to give it up. The color is beautiful and the leather is so soft. The bag is well designed and holds a lot of items while staying closed so nothing falls out.

Very nice beautiful and quality bag - very roomy.

I didn't like the handles - they looked bad in comparison to the rest of the bag. If just using those handles, I think it would be okay but if using the provided strap, the handles get in the way.

Great bag--perfect everyday size; love the color!

This fit my essentials: iPad, phone, sunglass case, comb, wallet and a few odds and ends. The feel is very soft and has a casual feel to it, but still feels a little dressier than your day-to-day bag. The strap was a little too long for me for just over the shoulder (I'm 5'4"), but was fine across the body.

This was the perfect fall bag!

The bag itself was ultimately smaller then I expected it to be (I anticipated a bag that could carry my laptop), but it was just the right size to carry my life around without being too big. I really liked the color, the crossbody, as well as the flap closure on top. It was a relaxed bag that I could use for everyday use, out to a concert and even out at night. If I wasn't looking to rent three items for events coming up this week, I would have continued to hold on to the bag!

Perfect everyday bag

I ordered this bag with unlimited and kept it for about 3 weeks. The color varies between brown and a dark currant depending on your outfit and lighting. The leather is soft and it is well made. Size was perfect for me for everyday use. I had read the other reviews and knew not to expect a full size tote. There were 3 pockets inside the bag to hold various items and keep the purse organized. Will probably rent again.

I didn't want to return this purse!

I LOVED this purse so much, it goes perfectly with anything you wear. The flaps are magnetic so you don't have to worry about items falling out of your purse, and it can hold so much stuff!

Goes with everything

Not quite enough room for a laptop, but a otherwise great bag to go from work to play. The interior pockets are a bit small - I could fit my phone but not my wallet.

The PERFECT beginning of fall purse - I DID NOT WANT TO RETURN IT :)

This is my favorite purse that I have rented to date! Its such a great color and its easy to wear/use. I loved that the straps were large enough that if I didn't want to wear the cross-body strap that I could still wear put it on my shoulders. This purse has one zipper pocket on one side of the inside and 2 open pockets on the other side of the inside and for me and all the junk I throw in my purse - any and all pockets or compartments are my best friend :)
