Great value and it is the same as the department store. My wife was so surprised when I gave it to her for Valentine's Day then immediately was worried how much it was. Luckily I got a great deal here.
In the main description at the top it says this bag is leather. It is not. I saw it mentioned that in the longer description far down the page but I don't think it should say leather anywhere. I like the bag, just disappointed that I thought I was getting a leather bag. Probably would have expected to pay less.
I wanted this purse last year at this time and it just cost too much. Thanks to Amazon, I got an excellent deal and I finally got what I wanted. It was a dream come true. It came perfectly wrapped and it was so nice to find the dust bag inside the purse. I cannot wait to use it, but I think I will wait until the spring to bring this one out. I love the idea of the "dust bag" to keep them in wonderful condition when not in use.
I purchased this bag and love it. I always do my homework when it comes to bags. This is the same bag they sell in the store (not the outlet). You can tell a bag made for the outlet because it says that in the description. I agree the lining is cheap, but that is the lining they put in this particular bag.
