Cute, but strange size

I love the color and the look of this bag. The space inside was a little strange though. The size of the bag makes it so the base of the bag is much smaller than the top, so fitting larger items in the bag can be a bit frustrating. It also causes a sort of trap for your small things at the bottom like a funnel. It was cute, but I couldn't handle it for more than a day.

Great and structured Satchel!

the issue with this bag is that the clasp is a hassle, when trying to reach for my wallet in a hurry, my hands meet the odd clasp with much frustration. Other than the less than utilitarian carabiner, the bag has a lot of use, and is a gorgeous velvet wine shade. The gold accents elevate it enough for it to serve as a stylish piece for a night out as well.

LOVE THIS!!!!!

I want to buy this I love it so much. It is so fashionable and looks very expensive. I love the color, the texture of the material, the closure, the size. This only thing I wish it had was a zip up separate container inside. It's just a bucket. No lining. But I still love it!

This color is everything

I am using this as my fall/winter everyday purse. I love the color and feel of this purse. Big enough for extras and fits over the shoulder

Interesting, eye-catching bag

If you're worried about undoing the carabiner clasp every time you want to reach inside, like me, you'll be relieved to find that the *bottom* part of the clasp, the small gold hook, rotates sideways to let the carabiner out. So it's a cinch to get into this bag, plus the top is wide enough to reach in to grab your wallet anyway. The bag comes with a shoulder strap, though it looked best on my arm. The only complaint I have is that the ends of the handles, which are threaded through the bag's front so they flap freely, were permanently bent outward, like curb feelers. But I tucked them back into the bag while I used it so it didn't look silly. Overall, I loved it as an everyday fall/winter bag!

This color is everything!! And the gold hardware.

I was wrong about the fabric! Its not inexpensive and has actually held up well. However the straps never lay right. It can only be used as a shoulder bag, not a multi-purpose handbag + shoulder bag

Material is very stiff, just OK for every day.

Pro - The multiple handles. Con - Stiff material. It honestly looks less lux in person. There are pockets but they are very tight. The color is beautiful though. No zipper compartments.
