Rated 3 out of 5┬áby anthropologist cute bag but...
Love the look of this bag, but when I received it I saw its flaws. The quality is definitely lacking, and I don't think this bag could handle a lot of everyday use. As another reviewer suggested, this seems like leather covered cardboard, which gives it structure but I don't know if it would hold up. The color of the wine version is a rich brown with rich burgundy "pony hair". Love the colors. The thin shoulder strap is barely substantial enough. The size is good for carrying a few basic essentials, but once again not enough for everyday use.
If you are looking for a stylish and small bag for once in a while, go for it. But this is not a workhorse bag.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby alexa11221 I didn't notice this on the web site
Even though I was scouring it for bags. But when I visited the Chelsea store, I found the navy version, thought, "that's so me!" and decided to buy it with my 15%-off birthday coupon. It's a bit bigger than I wanted, and doesn't have the internal organizing pockets that I prefer, but it is very cute. It is very structured, in a way that make it seem like it might be leather- and fabric-covered cardboard, and dimensionally I think that the top handle is a bit too large and the cross-body strap a bit too short. I would prefer it if it were a little slouchier, I think, but for the price, it's definitely a nice hit of style and chic. The contrast between the navy pony hair and the smooth black leather is yummy, in a refined way.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Hannahello Top handle too long
Cute shape, soft leather, beautiful calf hair flap. The top handle is the only thing off - it is a bit flimsy and long - does not hold its shape well when wearing the long strap. It should be shorter and sturdier. Otherwise lovely.
