Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely bag I am very pleased with this bag that I intend to use with my autumn wardrobe. It is very well made in a great soft and supple leather. It is a bit small for me but it will still work (I need to get a smaller wallet anyway) . I bought the gold one and the color is beautiful. It seems the closure is practical and will not be too difficult to use. This is the second bag I purchased from Madewell and definitely my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Straight out of the 70s Love the style of this bag, its size, and the super useful pocket in the back exterior. I got the boutique gold color and it's not as yellow in person-- it's more of a cross between yellow and the English saddle color...but it's still a super attractive color that goes with everything so I'm happy with it. Excited for this to be my new everyday bag!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and functional I've had the bag for about 2 weeks and I've gotten several compliments on it. It's the perfect size for carrying my wallet, sunglasses, small water bottle with my phone on the outside pocket for easy access. I got the boutique gold and it is not as bright as shown in the photo, but I still like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new bag! I have had my same crossbody bag for 3 years and have been shopping around for a new one. After looking for many months I stumbled across the Brisbane Crossbody Bag. I love the simplicity of the bag, the latch, the way it fits on my body and how much it holds. It is my new favorite crossbody bag and I hope to get many years out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it its very nice leather and I bought the mustard color, I went to several stores shopping and I received several compliments on it. It is a cross body but it holds a lot. I highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Bag I got this on sale in Boutique Gold. My new favorite bag! The color is a little darker than pictured, but I really love it. I love the unique closure. I love that it is small but large enough to fit a water bottle, my wallet, and a few other essentials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect crossbody I originally got the Brisbane tote but sent it back cause the shape was too long and big for the crossbody strap it came with. This one, however, is perfect. You can't see in the photos but there's an open pocket in the back, which is perfect for stuff you want to access easily. There's also a zippered pocket inside. Style is so cute and simple.
