My girlfriend loves this
on April 23, 2014
I'm a guy, so I don't really know squat about purses, but I wanted to get my girlfriend something she says shes been wanting for quite a while.
I do work with design a lot, so when I start working with colors, I first head over to Pantone to see what the popular colors are for this year. I'm really happy I did because when my girlfriend unwrapped this purse she absolutely loves the color.
She says its a very unique shade; its definitely noticeable but doesn't shock anyone for attention. When we go out for dinner and she brings this purse, she's always complimented.
The one thing that surprised me was how soft it was. I'm used to more saddle type leathers that are thick and rigid, but the leather in this purse is extremely soft and flexible. Sometimes that's a sign of being thin, but not with this material.
She loves being able to fit her planner in the purse, and wanted one with a carry handle and a "crossbody strap".
The one downside is the zipper; if its all the way open then zipping it closed is delicate. I think if it were tugged too hard then it would come away from the purse and be ruined. From what I can tell, its the placement of the zipper against the curve of the leather... its a definite design flaw; there's no way to get away from the bad placement. She likes how it looks though.
Oh, she also said that she was happy with the shade of the gold... that it isn't too yellow and is a very light shade.
