New Straps Needed
This is a very nice bag but as the last reviewer said the straps aren't leather but plastic. I have a really nice Frye Bag with leather straps which is needed in a leather bag. I would rather buy a more expensive bag with leather straps which adds comfort as opposed to a bag with plastic handles that was very uncomfortable. I decided to pay more and buy one of the more expensive Free People bags which gives the whole bag the style and comfort it deserves. Maybe this was done to make it more affordable but I think that was a mistake. Go for it and make is a bag people really want in their wardrobe.
I could not stop myself from ordering this bag, however, did not expect it to be so large. The leather was very nice but the plastic button accents confused me. I thought that on a bag of this price point, that metal buttons would be a standard. Not sure what I think of the braided trim. The interior is lined with a crochet lining which is very pretty but I wonder how it would hold up if you used the bag for anything other than a computer or clothing. Well made but some questionable issues. I also would have liked if the hand straps folded down somehow to accommodate the shoulder strap - as well as the shoulder strap being a cross body adjustable strap. Also the straps are hard leather vs. the bag being much softer. I would keep it if it was on sale but at this price it must go back as I would replace the plastic buttons and not sure how I would keep the lining from being ruined from catching things on it. But, overall, very unique bag which would be great for clothing.
