This bag is phenomenal. The leather is so soft and the bag is just the right size for wallet/cell and a few extras. Granted I've never been one to spend more than $20 on a purse before this purchase so anything quality was going to seem great to me! Totally worth the money. The inside lining is a bit cheesy (leopard print), but nobody really sees it so I'll get over it.

I was very excited to purchase my first B Makowsky purse as a birthday treat. It is the most I have ever paid for a purse and I proudly owned it until today. This morning the handle fell off of the purse. I contacted Amazon.com completely trusting that they would take care of my concerns. I was completely wrong. I was informed that the purse was over 6 months old and when they delivered it, it arrived in perfect condition so therefore a return / replacement was not warranted. I expressed that a $300.00 purse should last longer than 6 months and they said that is a concern I should take up with the manufacturer. It amazed me that as the seller Amazon felt no responsibility to sell a quality product. I have taken it up with the manufacture so it is yet to be seen how they handle it. So I guess this review is really on Amazons customer service and willingness to stand behind what is considered a quality product. I conduct most of my shopping online but I can tell you it will no longer be via Amazon.com.
