Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful, but not quite as described I love this bag! The color is gorgeous - a rich, saturated turquoise - and the construction seems quite good. The interior is lightweight cotton with suede at the top edge. The leather used for the body of the bag is supple, but the straps are very rigid - this makes them a little awkward but will likely resolve with time and maybe some leather conditioner. I got caught in the rain with it the other day and the dye remained stable - no bleeding. The suede interior tends to flake off a bit though, so beware that if you have loose papers in your bag, the edges may be turquoise! There is one large interior zip pocket, two small open pockets (one slightly wider than the other - my phone only fits in one of them), and a roomy (about 6' x 8") attached zippered coin purse. A 15 "laptop slides in, though somewhat awkwardly. Plenty of room for a tablet or smaller laptop though. Be aware of two things: 1.) Despite what the description says, there is no magnetic closure. There is no closure, period. 2.) There are seven dark metal studs on the top (where it goes over your shoulder) of each strap, which is not clear from the pictures provided unless you look very closely. They look like the ones that you can clearly see lower on the strap where it connects to the bag. I'm not particularly bothered by either of these, though I likely would have been had I paid full price. I think the style would be more versatile without all the studs, and my hair gets caught in them sometimes! July 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by look at details This gorgeous bag just arrived today. Love the colour and softness of the leather. However, I don't like the metal studs on the handles. It is very hard to see them in the pics. This is my second bag from this designer, but I don't love it as much as my other one. I would suggest checking the photos closely if you are buying online.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful This bag is beautiful. I thought it was too big for a hobo, more like a tote. Also, there is no closure, even though it claims to have a magnetic closure. I haven't decided if I'll keep it or not. I prefer some way of closing my handbag. So really, it is a beautiful tote. July 1, 2013
