The Fringe Crossbody Bag

The Fringe Crossbody Bag is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag, a wardrobe staple Ordered this bag online (understanding from previous review that it was not lined) and absolutely love it. Fits all my essentials, and the closure keeps everything secure. The fringe details is really nice, and will endure many seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fringe bag Very nice fringe crossbody bag. It's a bit bigger than I expected but that just gives me more room to carry more stuff. I do wish that the bag came with a snap closure instead of the flappy thing it has but the bag still closes good enough to where I think your belongings are secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love the size of this bag (fits my three essentials: long wallet, keys, and iphone), the perfect amount of fringe, and how it's cute worn as cross-bag or shoulder bag. I kinda like the tab closure...yes it's more difficult than magnetic, but I like how it feels more secure (won't open easily) and takes more consciousness when I put things in and takes it out (so I remember that my phone is in the bag, not left somewhere as I always wonder lol). I agree that the unlined-ness makes it feel flimsy and I was disappointed. Now that I've used it several times, I feel that's part of what makes it cool and gives the effortless look though. I have a similar bag but more structured, and that one's for more formal look. Overall happy with the purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in the mood for FRINGE! I just received this yesterday and the size is just perfect for all my basics--not too wide, not too narrow. I had been looking for a nice trendy leather bag with fringe but the ones I saw within the same price points had gold chain hardware OR the fringes were too long -- just too flashy for my taste. This is just a nice buttery leather all around. The fringe is trendy but not over the top. It's a hip bag for spring/summer. The only thing I wish it had was a magnetic closure for extra security and ease (like their other bags in the past) but that certainly was not a deal breaker. This one's a keeper!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Bag I bought this bag for a friend and she loves it. The only thing to mention is that the leather is thinner and the bag felt much lighter than I was expecting, so I am a little concerned at how long it will last. Other than that, it is a really pretty bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adorable but not as sturdy as I'd hoped I have very mixed feelings about this bag, and I have yet to decide whether or not I'm actually going to keep it. It is adorable, but there's not much to it. For the price, I expected a little more stability and substance to the bag. It is not lined, and the strap is really thin, so I'm not sure how well it will actually hold up. Also, I do not care for the flap closure...would much prefer a snap or magnet, which would make it easier to get in/out of the bag. The appearance of the bag is super on trend with the fringe, but the fringe detailing is subtle enough that it doesn't overwhelm the whole bag. I absolutely love the look, but I just haven't decided whether or not I can live with the lack of structure/substance or not yet.
