I didn't give this item 4 stars because, as other reviewers have mentioned, it does have a strong chemical/leather smell. I expect the smell will wear off with a few days of airing. However, since I go it as a flash deal I don't feel it was a bad purchase. It looks just as in the picture - pretty. It is a BIG bag. I plan on using it for summer overnight trips.
Although I thought the product would be all leather it is actually beautiful pieces of died leather sewn onto canvas. It is beautiful and I get at least one compliment on it each time I go out in public. It is form fitting to your body when using it as a cross-body and the strap is wide and comfortable on the shoulder. It definitely makes a fashion statement.
THIS is a great bag--roomy, rich looking and unique! Loved the detailing and the one of a kind look. I travel a lot and have received many compliments on the bag from strangers--I tell them where to get it! The quality is excellent, from the silky lining too the stitched flowers to the background canvas like material. I LOVE this bag! Definitely my "go-to" bag for travel!
THE COLORS ARE GREAT, JUST A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO HANDLE, NEEDED A SNAP RATHER THAN A ZIPPER FOR CLOSURE. THERE REALLY WAS"NT A NEED FOR A SHOULDER STRAP, HAND STRAPS ARE VERSIBLE. OVERALL GOOD SHOW ITEM.

I sent this back because I needed a smaller version, it was just too big for me as I wanted to use it as a handbag. It would make a great tote if I needed another tote. Overall it's a cute colorful bag with leather petals stitched to a heavy canvas tote. Nice nail-head detail too.
