Rated 5 out of 5 by Fashionista9L Out on a Limb with flowers
I love a detailed handbag that looks good coming and going. This well made full leather bag looks great on both sides which is important in NYC since a saddle bag has to be worn backwards for protection. I can turn this around to the body and no one can pick my bag/pocket, and it looks wonderful. I ordered this and the tea rose dinky (huge expense) because I love a square shape and hardly buy the flap only closure. However, I found the beautiful dinky only has flowers on one side while the saddle has front and back. I had to have the fully floral covered back and I ordered the saddle in the tan and the dinky in black (which makes it look dressy). Both are great choices and you will be happy! This is not a big bag so you will not be able to pack your house into it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CuteasaBugg69 Beautiful to Wear!
This bag is Quality and so very beautiful, I was smiling so big when I opened my box! I bought two..This one and the smaller one all in the Dark.. I felt like a 4 year old at Christmas!!! I like the smaller one better with the metal Shoulder Chain (I cant remember its name..please forgive) ...But now on the other hand let me stress they are an accessory not an everyday purse for me.. I actually use the smaller one to fit inside my larger everyday Coach bag to grab like a wristlet...A very expense wristlet!! But oh so cute!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JasMineH good looking, well made, tad small, mucho heavy
I love the look of this bag. I got the dark one but actually like the camel one better. Dark looked best with my clothes. Very well made, detailed, very 1970's without being a costume item or easily dated.
It gets 5 stars for looks and quality. Lots of beautiful detail, really nicely made.
It gets 4 stars for interior space, which is a tad small for me to use every day. Leather is stiff and won't expand so anything more than absolute essentials is a no go. I have both reading glasses and sunglasses, plus a decent but not huge wallet/card holder, lipstick, small comb small hand cream small kleenex pack. Almost can't fit that in and I use a cloth bag for the sunglasses not a case! Therefore, I may return it. I may keep it to use for fun occasions, not everyday. Not sure.
It gets 2 stars for weight. I understand that all the leather flowers and studs and lining make for a heavy bag but on weight alone I couldn't use it for every day.
So the debate goes on, keep it for fun, return it reluctantly. Despite the low weight rating, it is really a beautiful and special bag. FYI I had a moment thought when I first saw it that it looked like a Mulberry bag I had seen in London, just a bit. Turns out the new designer had been the designer for Mulberry.
