kate spade new york 'gold coast - maryanne' quilted leather shopper, large
I purchased in creamy white color and arrived in a horrible condition. It looks wrinkle like someone had been used and returned. I returned it immediately.
Love this bag... and you know the saying ladies... the bigger the bag, the smaller the butt. Splurge and buy it, you won't regret it!
Love the bag
I have carried Louis Vutton bags for the past 20 years. Following a recent purchase where LV refused to replace or refund me for a $1500 bag that started peeling after 9 months, a sales professional at Nordstrom suggested I take a look at Kate Spade bags. I did some research by reading customer reviews from a number of Kate Spade retailers. Last week I stopped by the Nordstrom store in St Louis and immediately fell in love with this black "maryanne" quilted bag. I purchased the bag and absolutely love it. I have had a number of ladies stop me at the airport and in the store to compliment on this classy black bag. I wasn't sure I would like the chain and read a few reviews about the shiny leather texture, but in person the bag is obviously very stylish and classy. Also very surprised by the cost and quality and do plan to purchase another color in the spring. Thanks Nordstrom for recommending.
Love it, but who doesn't love Kate Spade
I have bought and returned so many bags from Marco Jacobs to Longchamp and this is the first bag that I just couldn't part with. When you think of quilted handbags two brands come to mind, at least for me, Chanel and Kate Spade. Chanel is nice but not for the price (sorry I didn't mean to rhyme there). Although, I do have a small Chanel bag I didn’t buy it, it was a gift. I find it interesting that my new Kate Spade is just as nice as my Chanel. The quilting on this bag is very plush; the gold tone hardware is light and not garish. The bag has a bit of weight to it but it’s not as bad as most Dooney and Burke Bags which in my opinion are extremely heavy. I like that the compartments are separated by a zipper center pouch which is big enough to hold all of my valuables i.e. wallet, keys, iphone etc. I know that many who have reviewed this item commented that it was too big. I found it to be the perfect size. There were also comments about the possibly of items falling out of the bag which found to be quite ridiculous. Unless you’re doing cartwheels nothing will fall out of the bag. I have two Kate Spade Flicker Melinda satchels one is patent black and the other in gold so I'm a fan. Overall this is a sophisticated bag that can easily complement formal or casual attire.
