I'm not a purse girl - I don't have lots of them floating around so that I can change them with my outfit. I buy a neutral purse that will go with "anything" and then I put it through the ringer. I bought one of these purses in January and it lasted me through August before the straps started looking a little shabby (totally my fault - I carry a heavy laptop in it at nearly all times). I was so pleased with its dimensions/compartments that I bought another one at the end of August. What was weird with that one is that one of the straps just completely came undone! Overstock is helping me process the return and I plan on buying another one of these beautiful totes because I'm sure it was just a fluke. This bag is perfect for a 13 inch laptop and I like how the Gunmetal color looks.

I purchased this tote for work so its been great so far. I am able to fit letter size folders, a change of shoes, and still manage to fit my water bottle as well as other things. It has an outside front pocket which is handy for storing cell phone, keys, etc (would have liked another one on the back). It's a great tote! I didn't give it an excellent rating only because I really, really wanted the other color. I even went to Nine West website (and other websites) and couldn't find the color. In any case, I recommend the bag.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color I wanted was out of stock so I went with the black. The color was the same as it was on site.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is great. It's comfortable even when I have it completely filled up with my things.
- How accurate was the sizing? I expected it to be slightly wider to carry my laptop but the depth of the pockets is great. Overall, I was satisfied with the size.
I bought this purse and it was pretty perfect - roomy without being huge, lots of pockets, and it looked great. It also fit my laptop (13" Mac). After about a month of using it (often carrying the laptop), the strap ripped away from the purse. It's going to cost about as much as the purse to get it fixed, so it's kind of a waste. Such a shame - I really liked it while it lasted. So, yes, I'd "recommend it to a friend" if they weren't going to be carrying anything over six pounds... otherwise, I'd suggest they find something that's a little better made.
I really like this purse, the interior zip and the front pouch for keys and cell. The sides of the strap started peeling off after about a month. I just noticed this black plastic string on the side of the handle, and I guess when it all comes off it will look better. However, that leaves this nasty little gray/white edge of the bag straps, which totally gives away the manmade material. I really was hoping for better from Nine West. But, the price is good. I tried black shoe polish on the sides of the straps, even black marker, but doesn't work and could rub off on your clothing.

Great product, I absolutely love my bag! I bought for work so the only thing I would caution on is the size of your laptop. Product tapers at top so mine barely fits. Very stylish; I've already received many compliments on it and love carrying it. The grey color goes with everything.

This purse has a very attractive look. not just plain like some. It is very roomy inside. Has outside slip pocket for putting cards, coupons. Has inside zip pocket. I love it!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Black as shown

At first I absolutely loved this bag. I constantly received compliments and it was the perfect size for work. However, I've only had this bag for a month and the stitching on the back set of straps have already broken apart beyond repair. Nine West is usually a reliable brand so I am very disappointed in this purchase.
Exactly what I wanted/needed. I love that it has not only a small zippered section at the side of the bag (perfect for lip glosses, etc.) but also a middle zippered section, which is great for stuff like hand lotion, hand sanitizer, a compact, etc. so that everything isn't jumbled together and I can find what I'm looking for. I'm a musician, so I also appreciate that I can fit several pieces of music, my tuner, my spare strings, and my heels when I have a performance. And the gunmetal goes with everything, plus I like the light-colored lining so that it's easier to see inside the bag. Highly recommended!
