Love Love Love!!!

I cannot even BEGIN to tell you how much I LOVE this purse!! I was so scared when ordering this bag because of other bad reviews I had seen from this seller (MyGift) on some of their other handbags. But when I came across this one, the biggest complaint seemed to be the size of the bag was too big, so I took a risk at buying it because I was wanting a larger purse anyway, and boy am I glad I did!! This bag is SO much better then the pictures show!
I ordered it in the pink color and was expecting a very pale pink like the photos seem to be, but instead it's this gorgeous, soft, almost peachy-tinted pink, but more towards the pink side. It's a fantastic color and I'm much more happy with it then the pale pink I originally thought I would be receiving. The material this bag is made out of is amazing quality as well! It's incredibly soft and looks and feels like real leather. And the hardware isn't an overpowering gold like some other people were complaining about. It's actually closer to silver then gold. Like white gold almost? It's very pretty and compliments the pink very well. And this is coming from someone who HATES gold jewelry or wearing anything with gold hardware!
This bag is also VERY well constructed! I am SO hard on this bag and it just keeps going and holding up to my abuse. I've thrown it, tossed it, dropped it, kicked it, shoved it, stuffed it several times to the point I could barely close the zipper, afraid that I would bust it if I forced it any harder, but it's still in like-new condition! It's not even starting to fray, rip, tear, peel, rust, come loose or whatever else yet. Even after 5 months of taking everything I could throw at it! Going on it's 6th month actually!! The only thing is that it's starting to get just a little dirty, but it's surprisingly very, very clean considering I keep it at my feet when my friend and I are driving to and from work. And I'm up north so it's put up with snow and rain as well.
The two inside compartments are both a nice big size and can fit quite a bit, as well as the zipped divider pocket. I'm always surprised at how much can fit into this bag! The inside side zip pocket as well as the side zip pocket in the back are also a good size. As are the two smaller zipper pockets on the front of the bag. I keep my house key and little pill case in the one while the other holds about 5 or 6 chapsticks/lipsticks. Oh, the two open pockets on the inside are also very nice. I just love all the organization that his bag offers. Saves so much time when looking for something.
The shipping was also VERY fast. And the packaging? The packaging was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I can't 100% remember all the little things they did to ensure the safe arrival of this bag, but I do remember the box was still in good shape when it arrived, it was wrapped inside a nice dust protection bag (which I might reuse for something), had lots of tissue paper protecting from scratches and all the straps and zipper pulls had plastic suctioned around them to keep them nice, even the zipper pulls on the inside of the bag! I was extremely impressed by the quality and care they took to make sure the bag would have a safe trip to it's new home.
If there was anything negative to say about this bag, it'd be that I'm not the fondest of the mustardy yellow color of the inside lining of this bag. But I'm also not big on yellow colors lol. But I do like that it's a lighter color so you can find things much more easily compared to a bag lined with a black fabric. The woven belt around the bottom also comes unsnapped from the back a lot. (Yes, they're actually snap buttons) But that's only because I'm always over stuffing the bag. It just takes two seconds to snap them back together. The bag itself also has a bit of weight to it because of all the hardware, but its not too noticeable once you fill it with your items. Other then that, this is the best purse I have EVER had. And I've had quite a few.
I hope this review was helpful to everyone! If you have any questions you can always ask in the comments. ^^
