Coveted but disappointed
on April 18, 2014
I coveted this bag for a long time and when I saw the grey, I had to have it. It is gorgeous. Sadly, Minkoff though known for quality, is cutting corners big time on this bag - maybe it is the new company policy. The strap is great if you are 5'5" and under, otherwise it's too short for a crossbody. I wrote to the company, asking if they had a longer strap or some sort of extension and was politely brushed off.
Secondly, the two bottom zips on the front are for decor only. Only one workable pocket in front. Great for quick access to my cell phone, but really Rebecca Minkoff??? And NO pockets inside the main compartment. If you're going to call the bag a Zip - make the zips count.
Looks 10, talent 3!
UPDATE - after trying various ways to make this work to no avail, including organizer inserts and extending the strap with a chain necklace, I gave in and bought Hobo International's Mara bag - all the zippers work and there is a pocket on the outside of the bag. Plus organizer pockets for credit cards etc. inside. The zipper to the main compartment opens all the way - vs. the Minkoff, the zipper of which is not as long as the opening, so frustrating to get into it. I recommend the Mara!
