Little smell of leather, but that will go away. I am an assessment reader first so when reading every one of them decided to get this handbag. I was impressed with just how it was packaged also. One thing, have needed for the straps on bigger luggage to end up being wider always.Other than that, nothing wrong with it. This will be my everyday handbag for good.
It is soft, no odor, sturdy, no loose stitching, no cracking (even about straps), no issues. I am incredibly picky, I favor 100% leather no matter what brand I’m buying, this is leather definitely, and I must have the ability to comfortably wear the bag on my shoulder,which I could with this bag.
The materials has just recently began to fray and the outer coating is flaking off, but in all honesty for what is now a $25 purse I actually think it did great. Functionally, the bag still functions great with all zippers and rings intact. The inside pockets and compartments spoiled me so much that when I tried to make use of another purse without these features I experienced to return it for something such as this one!
It is small but not tiny. I can fill it up all the way but the weight hardly ever hurts my shoulders (I’ve a bag the same style that I really like but it just gets to damn heavy!)I can fit my moderate size wallet, my keys, a book, my glasses case, and a bunch of random stuff and reciepts/trash and still be able to search through it to look for what I need.
At first, I used the cross-shoulder strap, but found that it hung just a little low on the hip for me when taking walks (even at the shortest size possible, and I really do wish the strap had a little tab to hold the excess strap in place but that isn’t worth removing a star for, imo). Today I just keep the shoulder strap folded up inside the handbag in case I want to place it on and actually, I haven’t yet.
It’s real natural leather, didn’t smell horrible like many people had said smelled want new leather sneakers. Has so very much space, a pocket for my tablet, a pocket for my phone,middle zip and aspect zip pockets and substantially more space. I’ve fit 3 large magazines, a tablet, telephone, wallet, mackup bag, vitamin bottle, chargers,a sandwhich tupperware container and a pair of slippers and still had area to spare. and I possibly could zip it closed.
