Not anything special.
I thought this bag looked so cool in the pictures online. I am usually wary of "vegan" leather because I feel like that's just a relevant way to market "pleather"-- and I would usually rather spring for a high quality leather bag that will last forever (sorry, vegans and cows). But I've been impressed with some of the vegan leathers that have come from Free People recently, so I thought I would give this one a try! When I received it in the mail I was a bit disappointed. The leather itself and the shape of the bag is actually pretty cool. What I didn't like was the hardware and fringe detailing. I was expecting the fringe to be black and white ombre, but it was actually black and a medium grey. Also, the fringe is made out of a pretty low quality tassel... I think I might try finding a similar style but with a leather fringe instead. The strings made it look like a DIY fringe bag. I also didn't care for the brass hardware, because I prefer an "antique" brass... it is a bright and shiny yellow brass which was just waaaaaay too bling-y for me! I'll be exchanging this bag for something else!
