Lots of pockets and compartments!

Great size, lots of compartments. Has a large back pouch that will fit large phones plus keys. Inside has two main sections divided by a zipper pocket with and additional front pocket and a smaller zippered pouch inside. There is even a zipper pouch on the flap.

Love it!

This bag is super cute! It has a ton of pockets - almost too many, I keep losing things. It's the perfect size and the handle is really nice. The only negative is that even empty it is a little on the heavy side - I wouldn't want to carry all day if I was walking a lot. But I love it - I rented it with my unlimited and I'm keeping it for awhile.

Hard to return this bag!

I ordered this bag as part of my Unlimited subscription and kept it for several weeks. Perfect neutral color to go with everything, and large enough to fit a lap top. The cross body style means you can fill it with quote a bit and have it not feel as heavy as a shoulder bag would. Would highly recommend!

Great Bag!

This bag is so great I didn't want to return it. The tassel on the side is attached to a zippered cell phone pocket...genius! The handle is large so when bag is worn cross body it is a bit bulky. I preferred to wear it on my forearm & tuck the long strap inside. Great size & color with perfect combo of compartments. I will definitely rent again just to use that cell phone pocket!

Would 100% rent this again!

Great bag... beautiful leather in a gorgeous color. Super functional size with lots of pockets. Doesn't fit a laptop, but when I didn't need to carry one it was perfect. I love magnets, but this bag had such good ones that they kept desensitizing my hotel key o_O

The leather is like butter and the little details make this bag very special.

This bag was easy to wear as a crossbody and also carry with the top handle. The leather is like butter and there are so many little details to indicate this is a quality and high end bag. If you like pockets and dividers this is the bag for you. 2 outside pockets, center divider (which has zippered pocket) plus more internal pockets. I prefer an abyss when I open my purse so this is not the style for me.

Great neutral color , perfect size

The neutral color is great for every day. The size was just right for all I carry on a daily basis. And I love the two straps, the short braided one and the longer cross body make this bag very functional. I would rent this again or consider buying it.

Great purse ... lots of pockets

The purse is very manageable to find items. Lots of pockets but remember where you put things because they could get "lost". Shoulder strap stays on and bag hugs to the body quite nice. I've had it for a week on my unlimited membership and will hold on until another one grabs my attention.

Great Quality - Smaller than expected

The quality of this bag is top notch and I love the color. But...based on the dimensions I thought maybe it could fit my laptop definite NO. For me, I usually either carry a larger tote or cross-body bag for every day & that needs to hold my laptop, notebook, wallet, etc... OR I need a bag for going out & weekends, which typically only needs to hold cell phone, wallet, keys & lip gloss. This is a medium sized bag & I find it's too small for every day and too large for going out and weekends...not a functional size for me.

Perfect, everyday handbag. Beautiful leather and color.

The bag is simple enough, but the woven handles provides a fun, different vibe to the bag. I love this, and have been using it everyday.

Lots of Pockets!!

This bag is great if you are a fan of compartmentalizing your everyday items in your bag. The sheer number of functional pockets in this bag is amazing. Besides the standard 3 pockets, the inside of the bag is divided into two sections with another zipper pocket in the middle. Though I didn't discover this until towards the end of my rental, the front cover of the bag also has a side zipper for storage.

Beautiful purse with a million pockets

I absolutely loved this purse! I needed something with a lot room but was stylish for a trip to Europe and this did not disappoint. The purse is great quality and can be carried with the hand strap or as a crossbody. There are a million pockets in this thing and enough space to fit an entire DSLR camera plus a few other things. I hated to send it back!

Comfortable and holds everything in an organized way Great neutral clay/sand color

The bag came to me with 2 stains/marks on it. If it didn't have that I probably would have bought the bag. That being said-the bag is a good size and comfy to use and carry. Many compartments but they are kind of streamlined so it really keep you organized without being bulky . I took it on a trip to Denmark and Amsterdam and it really worked. The handle and the strap give you two options for carrying-and the handle still has enough of a drop to let you carry it on your shoulder.

Cute and practical.

The having both the strap and handle made this purse more versatile. It holds a surprising amount - I put my dSLR camera and a scarf in addition to the normal things and everything fit which was nice for traveling. The color is nice - goes well with blacks and browns.

Great everyday bag!

Absolutely loved this bag. Could be worn over shoulder or use the short strap. SO many pockets and storage room. Didn't fit my work laptop which was my only drawback to an everyday bag, but loved it for late summer/early fall weather!

Awesome bag for everyday use.

This bag has lots of pockets and a convenient pocked on the back side where you don't have to open up the purse. The color goes with almost everything and it looks really nice.

Pretty

This is a great spring/summer everyday handbag. It was in good condition when it arrived. It is heavy. People have commented on the number of pockets and it is true, there are so many pockets things tend to get lost. But the details were very pretty and I would not hesitate to rent again.
