Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfection I ordered this bag looking for an everyday cross body and it is absolutely perfect. The leather super soft, the lining is adorable, and my monogram (in gold) looks amazing. I did have to down size the amount of stuff I normally carried, which is probably a good thing! I have received a ton of compliments on it in the short time I have had it. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone! May 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Instant classic I bought this purse in the Frost, and find it to be the perfect spring bag! I like that it fits quite a bit without compromising on structure. I can easily fit my notebook, long rectangular wallet, phone and keys with room to spare! It sits perfectly as a crossbody bag, and is definitely worth the purchase. May 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by All around great purse I bought this purse in Bittersweet and I am extremely happy with this purchase. The quality is excellent, there are enough pockets to fit my family's needs and it seems to be very durable. I have been searching for the perfect bag for months and I am so happy with this find!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by great bag I love this bag! I stalked it for weeks before finally deciding to buy it, and I love it. I got it in bittersweet. The one negative thing I would say is that the leather on the back of the bag is already discolored a bit from rubbing against my coat, and I have only had it for a week. This doesn't bother me too much because I like a weathered look, but some people might be annoyed. Other than that it's really well made. It has a lot of pockets for the size. I have already received many compliments on it. April 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful This is the exact bag I was looking for! I have never spent a lot on a purse, but I had been searching for a while for the right one. I purchased the bittersweet color online when I saw it on sale and with an added discount and I am so happy with it! It even fits my iPad! I love it. April 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this bag! This bag holds so much! I usually don't carry small bags during the day because I need so much stuff but this one I can carry. It fits my wallet, 3" x 5" agenda, and small makeup case plus all my little things. Great leather too! I got the peach but I actually like the frost better. April 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool Bag I got the bittersweet color bag and I have to say I was hesitant at first but now love it. The tan/yellow tinged color is surprisingly neutral and goes with everything. The size of the bag forces you to make choices about what you carry and the only closures are the two front collar studs which make it easy for things to fall out if your bag isn't hooked. I have also worn this bag as a medium sized clutch by folding the straps in. If you can afford it buy this bag. I think it is worth the money and unusual enough that you will get loads of compliments. April 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful bag, perfect I love this bag. I hesitated because of the price (which is still reasonable), and I'm so glad I bought it. The leather is gorgeous, so buttery and soft. The size is perfect for me. It's large enough for a book and water bottle. April 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great design great back...just the right size for work! great combo of color...looks great with everything. March 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eye-catching go-to bag This bag is the perfect size and shape for daily use, with a spacious interior and tons of pockets. The colorblocked leather and nailhead fasteners make it anything but boring. I am going to carry this bag every single day, and from the feel and quality I'd say it's up to the task. March 27, 2013
