Rated 4 out of 5┬áby yozhikstudio Beautiful, but not very practical
This bag is not as structured as it looks when it is stuffed with paper. When I saw in it store I immediately fell in love with it. I went back the next day and bought it.
Pros: The colors, the vintage leather, the shape, the quilting are amazing. The length of strap allows for longer look, it comes down to the bottom of my hip, which I think is very modern. (Please be aware the leather finish is a little crackled, which may rub off with time.)
Cons: The way the strap is attached deforms the shape of the bag once you put some weight into it, like a wallet and a cell phone. If you plan on using it every day, the size may not work for you, if you would like to be able to add things like umbrella and sunglasses case. As it gets heavier, I feel like the straps might eventually rip though the leather. Also, this bag has to be zipped at all the times, otherwise it opens up by the straps pulling it wide open.
I decided to keep this bag and use it on special occasions. I do get compliments on it, because it is very beautiful, just not very practical.

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby Rainwater Should have listened to the first reviewer
Within just a month of everyday use, one of the straps has begun to rip through the body of the bag. I paid to have both straps reinforced and stitched to the bags' frame by a shoemaker, but he feels ( as do I) that the bag will rip again due to the design. I'm really disappointed, don't let the same happen to you. I'm 100% percent in love with the design, it's just not functional.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby DiscoGirl This is one adorable bag. I love that is has a vintage look, and the quality is very good. It's a tad darker and bigger in person, but still perfect. Great size for day and evening wear. Very excited to use it!
