Cheap for a Reason,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: MG Collection Maxx High Gloss Crocodile Print Office Shoulder Bag (Apparel)
I bought this purse because I wanted an affordable way to keep resumes on hand while I was visiting DC/ job hunting. I liked the purse initially and actually got lots of compliments on it. Less than 3 months later however, it was starting to fall apart with light usage. The handles, which are attached by a thin thread started to detach. My friend tried to sew it back and it just doesn't look the same--maybe we needed a larger needle and thicker thread. While it lasted, I liked it.
-nice patent leather look
-2 outer zippered pockets
-can hold pair of shoes (flats)
-surprisingly heavy (can't carry too many things)
-hard to reach inside zippered pockets
-handles detached after few months
Overall, if you want a nice looking bag for OCCASIONAL use (interviews, career fairs, etc.), this may be the bag for you. If you're looking to add this to your rotation of everyday work bags, I would not recommend. I will try to sew the handles again and see how that goes. If you can reinforce them, you're good to go.

I'm not buying this bag solely, because it was mentioned that the handles came off. It's 6 lbs without anything in it, so I imagine that if the handles aren't double stitched that it's a waste of money. Thanks for the great review!
