Love this Bag
I bought the wildberry color. All the right pockets for my stuff and a magnetic snap opening for ease of getting things out and in. Lovely, neutral, beautiful.
Cute, but .;...
The design of the purpose is cute and the size is great for carrying a bunch of stuff. The front pouch makes you think of a kangaroo pouch. However, for $500, I expect buttery soft leather. Instead the leather felt rather cheap like "pleather." I wasn't crazy about the color either. I was looking for a more vibrant color; its color had more of a "matte" finish, for lack of a better word.

I like handbags with exterior slip pockets for my phone and keys and this bag didn't appear to have what I wanted. Despite my misgivings, I bought this because of the large zipped pocket under the flap - great for keys, phone, tissues and anything else you need to get to quickly. You don't need to keep it zipped because it's tucked under the flap, a feature you don't see in the pictures. There's lots of space in the main compartment if you need to stash extra stuff. It's like having two bags in one. I was surprised that the magenta color I bought actually acts as a neutral color and goes with most everything I wear. It can be used as a shoulder bag or as a handbag, although I would have preferred to be able to adjust the handle to be a bit shorter. Lots of thought went into this bag's design. I've fallen in love with this bag and it may become one of my most-favorite bags ever.

Read the other reviews and wanted to share my opinion of this bag. I happen to purchase the bag at another retailer on sale in black with burgandy handles, a color not offered here. The leather is good quality and the bag is beautiful. The leather is sturdy, which I prefer. Hate the slouchy bags that collapse unless you put a ton of stuff in (e.g. Kooba "Logan" glitter leather tote). Maybe the bag looks and feels different in the other colors. The exterior pocket is unique, reminds me of a kangaroo pouch. I am satisfied, and may purchase another color on sale.
