I already have a Rina Rich bag that is going on it's fourth year of winter use and it still looks like new. I am hoping for the same good quality in this bag. So far, I don't think I'll be disappointed. The bag is well made, room enough for everything if I pack it carefully (phone, checkbook, wallet, credit card case, keys, etc.) I like the option of the shoulder strap, and will follow the other reviewers who mentioned trimming the long tassels. A good value.

This bag is really great, I'm glad I bought it. The only issue is that it's a bit smaller than I thought it would be, and I was even using a sewing tape to try to figure out how big it was. I still think that it's a great size, though, because I can fit everything I need to in it (cell phone in the interior cell pocket, keys, small daily planner, men's wallet, coin purse, and miniature umbrella in the main compartment, and gum, breath strips, and eye drops in the small outer pocket). It also comes with the handles AND a shoulder strap if you choose to go that way. To all of the people who were complaining it wasn't real leather "as stated", it wasn't stated as real leather, it was stated as "synthetic leather" as in man-made, fake, not real. For being fake leather, it seems pretty durable and it's good looking. I purchased the black one, but wished I could have been here earlier to get the chocolate one. Overall, I think the bag is awesome, and definitely worth the price. Although, like an earlier reviewer, I did cut the long laces to about two and a half inches, because puppies, babies, and my shy sense of fashion, do not mingle to have three foot laces on a bag. Once I cut those, I was proud to show off the cute handbag I bought!!
The description of this bag says that it is leather. It is no leather, I can assure you. It is some kind of vinyl. The red color is pretty though and it is popular right now. The tassels are about a foot long. I am going to cut them to about 2 inches because they look rediculous. I bought this bag because it said it is leather but to return it I have to pay shipping and restocking, so I will keep it. It is small, too. The price is a little much for a small vinyl bag.
