Handmade soft suede hobo style crossbody bag featuring a colorfully knit long strap and statement fringe detailing. Zip top closure with slip and zip pockets.
I love free people stuff but I'm always prepared to receive an item that differs a little from the photos however in this case I feel like I've been sent a cheap knock off version of the one advertised. Admittedly it was reduced in the recent sale but surely that shouldn't make a difference?! As the previous review stated, the lining is nothing like pictured, nor is the label and it really does look cheap. My biggest gripe is the strap, which is what I loved most about the bag. Despite the title 'diamond dozen crossbody' mine has chevrons! I really am gutted as I loved this bag which is why my review is so whiney! I think either Free people should change the photos or add a variation disclaimer to avoid the inevitable returns.
hmmm....not so sure
LOVED this bag as soon as I saw it. I finally received it and I 'm a little disappointed. First, the strap is VERY long. The bag falls as far down as mid thigh. Maybe this is how it's supposed to be, but I'm still trying to figure out if I can pull it off.....secondly, the bag is more of a taupe color. Not sure why, maybe it's because of the first photo, but I expected it to be a little darker, more like "camel" or "tobacco." Lastly, the lining in the bag is plain beige, not that cute printed liner as shown in the (5th) photo. That was a little annoying since I really thought the colorful liner added a nice touch. I like the bag, just don't LOVE it like I expected to. A little disappointed but overall like the style. Not sure if it's going back or not. I'm torn.
