I have been looking for a stylish tote bag for a while. I was able to get the Frye boots called Deborah on sale and when I saw this bag, I knew it was meant to be mine. Very roomy and easy to use and find your stuff. It has a very distressed leather surface with wonderful mini-studs.

I've admired this bag for a while. I held off for a while because of the price and then finally bit the bullet. I just couldn't help it. I had to have this bag! And I must say and it is as beautiful in person as it looks in pictures. I get compliments on the bag all the time. It is just gorgeous! Here's the problem, though - the corners along the bottom of the sides (along the seams) started to fray within 2-3 weeks of using the bag. The leather is just sort of disintegrating. I am heartbroken, because I have to return it and probably shouldn't try another one. I just noticed a similar complaint from someone else's review here. This problem can't be a coincidence. Frye why? This bag is way too expensive for this to be happening. Very, very sad. :(

This bag is absolutely beautiful. It sits on my shoulder perfectly. It is big enough to hold everything I need without being huge. Here's the problem: I've only been carrying it since Tuesday (today is Thursday) and the part that sits against my hip is already peeling. That is totally disgusting for a bag at this price.

I love this bag! My favorite by far. Just the right size and I can find my keys. I hang them on the key fob inside.

Great roomy bag - just know that you are getting a factory-distressed vintage looking bag from Frye. They started the distressed look for you and it will undoubtedly become more distressed over time. If you don't want it to "age" too quickly, it's a good idea to start conditioning it frequently. Love the feel and slouch of the bag. I wanted a bag that looked casual and "thrown around" and this works great for my lifestyle (casual/edgy, parent).

This bag is spectacular - every time I have gone somewhere carrying it I get compliments - even from strangers. It holds everything: wallet, insulin test kit, makeup bag sunglasses, reading glasses, notebook, knitting, snacks! I just wish you also had the larger tote bag version so I could have an even bigger bag like this for my brief bag for work!One tiny item: the magnetic closure is awkward - wish it was either dog-leash clip or had the magnets inside the top of the bag instead of on tabs that have to be lined up.

Brands I'd also recommend: Spirit by Lucchese, Fossil

Drop dead beautiful bag! Well worth the price! Thanks Zappos for carrying such great Fry products and having such a great return policy. You bet this one won't be coming back! I'll just hide the bill from my husband.

This is a very interesting bag looks-wise, but just not worth the money in my opinion. Other than the cost vs. value, main issue with it is that it doesn't stay closed. I just can't justify the cost, so back it will go.

I'm a bit bothered by the inadequate closure. There are magnetic snaps that are so far inside the bag that if it's even halfway full, they won't stay closed. A zip lining would have been better; I live in New York and am loathe to go out with an open bag. That being said, I do like it a lot and will just guard it carefully!

I'll start with the good. Fell in love with the look of the bag and the looks lived up to my expectations. It is roomy enough to carry everything I need and have enough room to tuck in a light sweater, making it perfect tote size. But I would not buy this bag again. Like others, I'm dissatisfied with the closure and can't count how many times I've dumped the entire contents of the bag all over. The distressed leather is so rough, that if you have a delicate sweater on, the bag will literally "chew it up" as it moves naturally while you move. The metal studs are what make the bag, but they get caught on everything, and have snagged several nice blouses and shirts. I've had my bag about 10 months and already I can tell that the handle material is completely cracked. It's like it wasn't built to carry much weight-but when you have a bag this big, of course you're going to carry a lot of weigh in it. I agree with the reviewer who said Frye was getting a little ballsy with their pricing. I'm going to be shopping for a bag again soon because it will be worn out. And usually I can easily make a bag last two years.
