Got tired of it after a month
on August 17, 2014
I bought this cross body bag in tangerine because I wanted a leather bag that wasn't black. I shopped around and decided on this one. I am very picky about my purses and this one seemed to hold up to my standards on paper: genuine leather, cross body, lots of organization: sounds perfect! At about $110 + prime shipping, I thought it was a steal (Yeah, that's what I paid for the bag about 2 months ago. This 150+ is ridiculous!) I got the bag and fell in love with it. It was super soft!
I carried this bag for about a month before I got tired of it. In the bags defense, I do tend to buy bags then find something wrong with them (As I said, I'm super picky. But wouldn't you be after spending this much on a bag?) I realized it hardly ever stood up on it's own, even with a good amount of items inside (there is not hard bottom), which bothered me a little. As an organizational freak, I LOVED all the zippers and such but quickly grew tired of them because it actually became too much for me. I liked the large front and back slip pockets because it offered organization and security without having to open and close every time you wanted something. As for the three zipper pockets? Annoying, especially if you've got a lot in the main compartment. Just with a sunglasses case, wallet, and a few other small items, the bag began to "bulge" which made it hard to get into the bottom two zipper compartments. They get smaller as you go down the bag so it almost made them useless.
As I said, in the bags defense, it is genuine leather, offers lots of organization, and is a nice cross body. However, personally, I found it to have TOO much organization and I couldn't even use some of the pockets because of a few items in the main compartment (and it wasn't even a lot, mind you). But now, the price has even increased and I'm definitely glad I bought it when it was cheaper. I'm currently trying to sell mine on E-Bay. So, overall, the bag has nice qualities but I found it just wasn't for me. If these features don't bother you, then go for it.
