Love this bag
Ive had my eye on this bag for awhile and purchased because it went on sale. Its awesome and roomy. Love the slouchy look of it. Yes one of the tassels fell off not long after I started using the bag (i think my husband sat on it and pulled it out from under him pulling the tassel off) however, I was able to glue it back in with fabric glue and haven't had any other problems since. Love this bag!
Are the tassels important to you?
I took a chance & bought this messenger bag against the other poor reviews it gained because I couldn't get it out of my head for days. Granted, I'm an extreme bagaholic who has a houseful of handbags. A girl's got to have a bag for every day of the month, every occasion, every outfit, right??!! As I've only used it once I don't know if the tassels will hold up. However, I decided before I ordered that I loved this bag even if it didn't have tassels. If they start to fall off I'll just remove the lot. However, they do give the bag it's bohemian look which I adore, but in reality, the tassels are not made of genuine leather like the strap. They are brittle & scratchy. It may not hurt to remove them in the end as they bring the bag's quality down anyway. This bag is simple, easy meets funky, boho. It's a great size & comfortable to wear. The suede is really luxurious quality while the strap is adjustable leather with a wide padded area over the shoulder for extra comfort. It's awesome! I took 1 star off for the poor tassel design. You just need to decide if the tassels are important to you.
Received bag, days before vacation, one tassel fell off in box and the inside of leather strap is shredded.

I loved the look of this bag and received numerous compliments (for good reason)... but only after using it 4 times, the tassels started to fall off which is what makes the bag so unique. I was so disappointed in the quality of this bag especially because it took a big chunk of my wallet...
