Rated 4 out of 5 by LilE Great look but not great in function
I have to start by saying this bag visually completely met my expectations. I was warned in other reviews that the strap is too short to function as a crossbody so I was not too surprised when it sat a little high when slung across. I am a bit of a shorty so it doesn't look too awkward on me.
Two issues I have with the bag that wasn't mentioned in other reviews are:
the black of the leather rubbed off on my bright red jacket and left an extremely dark streak behind :( The bag does come with a warning on a hangtag saying the leather dyes may rub off on lighter clothing. However a bag unavoidably rubs off the side of your clothes/jackets since that is how a bag functions!
Secondly (not so much a problem as the first) the magnetic button doesn't close right away unless I make an effort, so I find my bag tends to be open more often than closed.
All in all I am slightly disappointed because function is important for a bag I planned on wearing daily running around the city

Rated 4 out of 5 by JulieK Cute bag, super short strap
I just received this bag in the Willow bough color (sold out now). The bag is really cute, quality construction, and the leather seems like it will get even prettier as it scuffs up a little bit.
However, the strap is way too short to wear as a cross body. I might take it to my cobbler and see if he can put a couple more holes in (there's about 4 inches of strap left even when it's on the last hole).
I'm going to keep it because I love the style, but if you're looking for a true cross body, you may want to look elsewhere.
