Versatile and impressively chic, this crossbody features a soft vegan leather and gold hardware. Front pocket zipper accents. Inside has one zip pocket and two slip pockets. Hidden back zip.
The purse itself, I love. Its beautiful, spacious, and functional. However, it has a big flaw, hence my lower rating. When I use it, the clasp that connects the strap to the body of the bag often comes undone and closes tightly onto the leather flap. The first time this happened I was so sad because it left a permanent mark and indent on the top of my previously flawless bag. The second time it happened, the clasp came undone but didn't hook onto the bag so it just fell off and my bag dropped to the ground. This continues to be an issue but I love the look and overall function of the bag, so I just have made it a habit of checking it when I put it on so that it doesn't crash to the ground or continue to damage the flap. Definitely a hassle. I included some photos for reference.
I bought this bag on April 30th 2015. It arrived a couple of days after that. So we can say I've been using it for less than 4 months. I use it to work, and usually carry my keys, laptop (MacBook Air), wallet, glasses, small moleskine, pen. You can see everything I had in the bag in the pictures attached. This morning when picking it up from the car when I got to work, the hook that connects the shoulder stripe to the bag simply broke. Look at the pictures. There's no other explanation except for the material and quality being poor.

I'll be honest, I'm extremely picky. I bought this bag for school and while I think it will be great for that, the bag is heavy and larger than it seems with the model (and I'm relatively average sized, 5'4"). After the sizing though, it is a great bag. It has tons of compartments and is very expensive looking.
great for business, but...
this bag is great if you want to use it for business, but as an everyday purse it did not work for me. it's big, thick, and kinda heavy. and I normally like zipppers, but since there's already a flap cover, I didn't think it was necessary for the zipper opening inside. it just slows things down when you have to reach for your wallet.
Professional and stylish
This bag looks just as great in person as it does on the model. I thought the insides would be a bit bigger then it actually is but, it is still a good size (this way I won't over pack and make my purse to heavy). It is laptop size with a bit more room for a few books. I think I will keep this bag.
PICKY BUYER, INSTANT LOVE
I have been looking ( and returned two bags) for months for my perfect carry on and day bag for my Europe trip this summer, and I finally found the perfect one. It ZIPS, it's big, and everybody asummes it's $300. Loveee.
Great hand bag
I needed an affordable, year-round bag for work and this one couldn't be more perfect. I wanted multiple pockets/compartments with a zipped closure (not sure why this is so hard to find but it is!). It's large enough to hold my laptop and files but doesn't feel bulky like a brief case. It's cute enough to use as a go-to bag and holds a lot! I especially love the quality. I've received several compliments about the bag and when I tell them how much I got it for, they're shocked. People assume it's worth hundreds. Mission accomplished :)
I love this purse it's so versatile! It can be worn as a cross body or a handbag and it can fit lots of stuff. I get tons of compliments on it daily. Only thing about it is the two front zippers get caught on the fabric inside pretty easily, otherwise love :)
