The most beautiful purse ever

I'm obsessed with this purse! It is the softest leather and super easy to carry. Big enough but not too big. OMG I love it.

Cute bag, but doesn't look as expensive as it is.

Cute style, not the quality I expected

Soft, roomy and stylish!

Incredibly soft leather, beautiful navy blue color. Fold-over magnet closure with 2 front zip pockets. Adjustable strap that you can lengthen or shorten easily. A few slight wear marks, but nothing too noticeable. I rented this as part of unlimited and plan to wear it for a while! Love...

I wore this purse for everday use.

Beautiful bag! Soft, buttery leather and a nice size. I wore it over my shoulder and cross-body and it was perfect for an everyday bag. The color was a little lighter blue than I expected - i think i imagined it closer to a navy but it had a more teal blue shade that i had thought. Overall though a great fun purse in a color i wouldn't normally buy!

super functional day bag

As others have commented, the blue is not as striking as it seems in the pictures, but it is buttery soft and super functional. I loved the magnetic closings at the top of the bag, and the many zippered pockets. The adjustable strap makes it work for any body shape. I may try this bag in beige next!

Soft leather, great navy color, too floppy for me

One frustration with some magnificent bags is the lack of interior pockets & compartments. Not so with this buttery soft navy blue leather bag - plenty of compartments including 2 surprisingly roomy outer zippered pockets. Really great shade of blue too. I am not crazy about the not removable shoulder strap. The strap was too long for me, and when I adjusted the length, the strap kept slipping into a too short midspot. So many things to like about it, but I am a constructed purse gal so I just couldn't enjoy the floppy shape of the bag.

Love the color and buttery leather.

Nice size for running around town. Plenty of space for wallet, sunglasses and a few beauty essentials.

Super Sweet Satchel!

I rented this for a few weeks while traveling. The leather is super-buttery soft and the design is very comfortable to carry, even for extended hours. It's also a lot roomier than it looks but doesn't over-burden you. The neutral navy color is just awesome - goes with everything!

Great size bag with a pop of color!

Pros-The bag is a pretty blue/green color. It is made of extremely soft leather and it has many pockets/compartments. Cons-The bag is not quite the vibrant blue I thought it would be and the size was a little large for my taste. Overall cute bag but just not what I thought I ordered.

This bag is a beautiful color.

It is a little slouchier than expected. Butter soft leather. I wish it was a bit more structured.

Little worn out/ scratched, but overall it met my needs. Note there is not a zipper but magnets.

I used this for a week on vacation. I liked the blue color, and the leather is nice and soft though the bag is a bit scratched on the bottom. The magnetic top closure was great for quick access to my large camera which fit nicely in the expandable bag when I preferred not to look like a total tourist. Note however, I would consider a zip closure if you're traveling somewhere where pickpockets are an issue. The front pockets were convenient for tickets and small essentials. It can be worn cross-body or shortened.

Best everyday commute/ travel purse!

I had this cute crossbody for about a month. I couldn't let it go. Wore it everyday on my train commute to work. The size was great (held lots of stuff) and easy for me Get items in purse with one hand! Also took it on travel and it was the best travel purse. Held everything I needed. Leather is supple and soft. Very well made.
