the time i got this bag, i was so excited and nervous upon opening the plastic packaging. i never thought that it would be delivered with plastic packaging so i realize the reviews are true. anyways it comes in good conditon and it is very pretty so the reviews are true again, i always rely on good reviews to guide me what to purchase and that helps a lot. the bag it self is well made the gold hardware are stunning since i am a gold lover the smell of a real leather is intoxicating i cant help myself of staring on it, i even forgot to eat my lunch......oh yeah i was mesmerize the beauty of this bag. i highly recommend it.
This is my first Rioni handbag. I had been reading all the good reviews of this product and decided to treat myself to this bag. I would give this item 10 stars if I could. The bag weighs about 1 pound 8 ounces by itself and after putting all my stuff in the bag it weighed 3 pounds 14 ounces. However, the bag does not feel heavy at all. I was considering getting the large boston bag, because I was not sure all my daily stuff would fit in it. I am really glad I got the small bag. I am able to fit a large wallet, checkbook, notebook with calendar, keys, cell phone, cosmetic bag and I still have room. What a beautifully made handbag!! A detachable shoulder strap and a Rioni storage pouch were included. I would definitely recommend this bag.
My first Rioni purchase, and I love, love love it!! I was shocked by the quality materials used, the substantial feel of the handles, the leather trim and the same high quality coated canvas that's used in the higher end brands. The entire bag is NOT leather and it's not supposed to be. Just like the L* brand the trim is leather but the body is not. Nice interior fabric with a big zippered pocket + a phone pocket and another pocket. It has a zippered pocket on the back + the 2 size pockets w/magnetic closure on the sides. I do have the L* speedy 25 and I find I use this bag more now because of the 2 additional side pockets. I LOVE this bag. I am a petite woman and this is perfect. I also purchased the large boston bag for my sister and she loves it just as much!! We have both now drifted away from higher end designer brands. This bag is NOT trying to be an LV , it's just beautiful in it's own right and I don't think you can confuse it for the LV!

I bought this purse as a birthday gift for my self. I ordered the purse and when it arrived it was cute but small...But I kept saying to myself I can make it work. Well little that I knew the next day I was reviewing and email and it said " Small signiture bag", so that explains why my bag is a small purse. I called customer service and told her that I needed to send the purse back and get the large since I ordred the wrong bag. She said sure no problem, and the larger bag was only a 10.00 difference. so I ordered the large bag when it came in 5-6 days later...I was dancing b/c the bag was large and I could place all my things in it.. The 1st day a lady was passing by with her shopping cart and stopped me as I was paying for my groceries and asked where did I get my bag from and that she just don't see great purses that look like mine at the stores. So needless to say I'm loving my bag. I love the side pockets to put my cell phone in for easy access. Fabulous bag!! Will buy again

If you are looking at an LV Speedy, save your money and buy this bag instead. Not only is it as nice as the LV version, but better thought out. They had better up their game if they hope to keep Rioni from taking over the market! I speak from experience as I own an LV Speedy 25, but never liked it because of the brass zipper in it, before long it smells like dirty brass and your hands do too. The Rioni bag has so many nice extra pockets, the end pockets are a nice size for a small cell phone, keys, iPod--the rear zipper pocket is perfect for sunglasses and the three pockets inside for glasses, pens, whatever! While this is a small bag, you can get quite a bit in it, I have a makeup bag, glasses, two pens, wallet, notepad and checkbook in the main compartment and it doesn't seem crowded at all. The construction is excellent, the way the top zipper extends down the side a little makes it super easy to see inside the bag without a struggle. The base is more solid than an LV which to me is a plus, the bag retains it's classy shape instead of looking like a sack and the brass feet keep it from getting beat up. The long strap included is a nice bonus, to buy just a strap from LV like this would cost as much as the Rioni bag did with it included! If you have been debating about getting this bag (like I did), just do it, you won't be sorry! I plan on buying more bags from the Rioni line in the future. My only disappointment was in the way it was shipped--seriously Overstock, you can't put this in a box instead of a plastic bag? My shipping bag actually had a hole in it by the time it got here, luckily it was where the protective cardboard inside was over the bag and it wasn't damaged.

First the quality is above what I expected, it looks quality! The size is perfect not "small" as indicated, I have put a lot in it and have room for more. The first time I carried the bag I got several compliments on it. I would recomment this bag to everyone!
The overall experience with dealing with Overstock.com deserves a five star. Thank you for the wonderful service we received from all of your staff.

Just got my Rioni Signature Small Boston Bag and I just love it. I switched all my things out of the currant Coach bag I was using and there is plenty of space. The inside pockets held everything I had in the old bag. The handles are a good buttery color and It looks great. I can tell I am really going to enjoy carrying this bag. It opens very nicely so that you can see all the items inside very easily. Plenty of room for all I need to carry! Buy it! You won't be sorry.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good. The handles are darker than I thought but I love them. The bag itself is a deep brown.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Lovely leather and quality workmanship!
- How accurate was the sizing? Good but a picture with a woman holding it would help buyers see the size better than the picture that you have.
Although I had never heard of the brand, nor have most people that I've talked with, I love this bag! I get so many compliments from both friends and strangers. The quality is excellent with a very attractive and classic style. I'm very happy with my purchase.

I found this bag to be the right size for all the things i carry in a handbag. It was competitively priced and got it cheaper with an email coupon. The only issue that i have is that the shoulder strap has to be attached to the handles hardware. This are no loops specifically for the long strap. I prefer to carry it by the handles, anyway. It is a very well made handbag, and i would recommend it for all age groups.

I like this bag but unfortunately had to return it because it was a bit too small for me. I like medium to large bags and this is more for someone who likes small bags that are bit roomer on the inside. I am still contemplating the larger size but have already gotten myself two other styles because of how well made they are. Great quality and craftsmanship with all Rioni bags! I just became a fan. Love them!

This is my second Rioni bag purchase. The workmanship and quality of this bag, like my other one, is amazing! Excellent attention to detail with very useful compartments and side pockets. It is a very cute city bag, with plenty of space to hold everything I need for the day. With all the leather trims and beautiful hardware, the bag is pretty heavy empty. Although I haven't used the shoulder straps that comes with the bag, the bag can get quite weighty after walking a few blocks carrying by its handles. I took off one star on the review because of that... Overall, this bag is fabulous! For the price, look and quality, I highly recommend it!
