This handbag was just what I was looking for. I wanted a larger back with lots of space -- room for everything including my calendar book, etc. The reason I gave this bag only a 3 star rating was because it was incredibly heavy -- even before I put a thing in it! It was so heavy that looking through it to find an item actually tired out my hands, wrists and arms! Even using the cross body strap didn't help. I was disappointed....the bag was perfect except for the weight of the bag. I returned the bag.
Pretty little satchel. Right size for iPad with room for accessories and snacks. Zippers are rough, so need to be careful not to scratch items. Top loading is a little tight. Not sure how well the single clasp can withstand the weight of a full bag, so time will tell. I like the optional cross-body strap, but it attaches to top flap, so not the best design to carry weight. Overall, I like the smaller sized briefcase look and the fact that no animals were used to build it. Definitely a nice fashion case.
I bought the black Anais Gvani Croco Embossed Mini Satchel Bag. I thought I was ordering a bag that would be big enough to use as a purse and enough space to be like a mini modern briefcase at the same time - dual use if you will. . I was wrong - it's too little for both uses - but will be fine as a nice quality handbag. The product came wrapped like it was the hope diamond - the zipper tags were wrapped, the handles were wrapped, the straps on the front wrapped, the insides packed with pounds of filler, etc. So, from a stand point of making sure the product was well padded and protected for shipping and transit damage - 5 stars. The color was a little odd - I bought the black, but the color almost seems like a mixture of a black/charcoal and dark brown color - all tones in one. It's pretty, but a little off. The brass hardware looks nice against the dark skin of the purse. You have options of carrying the purse in hand or via the attachable/detachable shoulder strap. Lots of room inside the silky divider pockets. It is a sturdy purse with lots of definition to the pattern outside and inside. The inside has plenty of pockets and dividers for storing wallets, pens, pads of paper, small phones, make-up bags, etc. I think it will go well at work, at special events and outings. It's more than a casual purse - a more sophisticated version I would say. I would not use it around town for partying at the bars or a night out with the girls where casual is the name of the game. Although it does not meet my needs fully and it cost more than I usually spend on a so-so name brand purse, this one has enough quality, interest and character to be kept. So, I was pleased but not overwhelmed. Good not great. But, still a good pick.
