After spending hours walking the mall and seeing gorgeous bags at Nordstrom and Marc Jacobs, etc. I was stunned that this nicely priced bag displays terrific detail, sumptuous finish and general class. Its beautifully lined and the hardware has a pricey looking finish...not cheap plastic look. I hope this holds up but thus far its all I was expecting and plenty more! If this is indicative of the quality of al the bags in this brand, then I'll be back over and over.
