This is a beautiful cross body purse. The leather is luscious and the craftsmanship is superb. However, it is very tough to get into because the zipper doesn't open all the way across. The bag is also very deep so things get buried way down in the bottom. Couldn't put in a standard size wallet, sunglasses, eyeglasses and have room for other things. The pockets inside of the purse are good for organizing things as long as they are fairly small. This is a great weekend or walk around town purse but don't think I could use it as an everyday purse. I will keep it only for that reason.

I rarely review anything but this bag is so nice. Dimensions are a matter of taste, but if you like a long, relatively flat cross-body bag, you cannot beat this one . The quality is amazing for the price: a smooth and yet sturdy leather.

Good size for holding a wallet, iPad mini and a couple of extra items. The strap is long enough for cross body use. There are only 3 holes in the strap, so it can't be shortened much more than about waist length. The small pocket on the outside is good for a phone or a small notebook. I look forward to using this purse for years - it is just what I wanted.

I love this bag. It is the perfect size - small enough to travel with easily, but large enough to easily carry a wallet, passport, phone etc. Interior pockets are nice also. Love the deep caramel color as well.

I just received this bag and it is perfect. I love everything about it and the quality is excellent. I used to carry a Coach purse until it finally broke beyond what Coach would fix. This purse is the same high quality as Coach and I can tell already that it will last for years and never go out of style.

Brands I'd also recommend: Coach (if they can find a style they like-I don't like any of their current styles,

Oh, is this gorgeous. At first I thought it would be too small, but I can get everything into it that fit into my somewhat larger and rather slouchy bag. And this makes me feel like a lady. It is so luxurious, the leather, the inner pockets, the clever slim outer pocket, the length of the strap. It's great. I could do with another inch or so in width, but that would be quibbling.

I bought this because another reviewer said an iPad fit well into it. I must disagree. I can get an iPad into it, but not easily, especially with a wallet or anything else in the bag. I prefer to have my things fit easily into my bags so this is not the cross-body/iPad compatible bag I had been hoping for. It is otherwise lovely and well made. It would easily fit an iPad mini.

Absolutely perfect cross-body bag! Beautiful leather, adjustable straps, not too large or too small.

I purchased this recently in the Brown Venice color. I love this bag. Beautiful leather, soft, quality galore! The strap and the bag cross nicely over the body and lays nice and flat. Fits my slim credit card sized wallet, reading glasses and sunglasses (in slim cases) and pockets for keys, cell, etc. I might even order an additional bag in black!

So perfect! This bag will go with anything and is such a great size and shape. It's flat on the bottom so it's roomier than most cross body purses. This easily fits a check size wallet, sunglasses, keys, and phone with room for tiny items (lip glass, Chapstick...). there are several pockets inside including a zipper pocket which is awesome, not to mention the outside pocket that you can't even tell is there. I'm buying one for a friend! Such a steal for the money! I wish it was available in more colors!

This is a sweet looking bag. I was, however, disappointed that it was too small to comfortably include a Kindle and a bit on the dressy side with its shiny leather and trim no nonsense look. After buying this I actually broke down and spent the extra on the Hobo Rocker which was excellent for everyday use; now the Alessa just sits in my closet. If you are looking for a sleek, dressy look the Alessa is for you.

This purse is bigger than what I'm used to, but because it's kind of flat, it's not bulky at all. I've been using it every day for the past few months. If I don't put much of anything else in the purse, it can hold my iPad and still zip up, but just barely. The depth does make it difficult to fish keys and other little things from the bottom. I now use a coin purse, otherwise there is no way I would ever find coins at the bottom. The metal zipper can get scratchy when I put my hand inside. I have to be extra careful. The strap is a good length for crossover, but too long if you want to wear it off one shoulder - I'm 5'3". Although the strap is adjustable, there are not a lot of holes for adjusting. I guess you could take it to a cobbler and cut the strap if it's too long for you. The leather is very nice and firm. I've carried this purse in the rain - no problem. I've not scratched it yet, so it doesn't appear to scratch easily. The outside pocket is very handy. Because of the firm leather, it's not stretching out when I put my cell phone and other things inside. Overall, I really like this purse and have received compliments.

This is too skinny to keep much in. If your lipstick is in a pocket and business cards and pens in another then it is hard to reach in to the items that I would normally keep such as wallet, keys, etc. They all settle in the bottom.

Bought this bag for a trip to Barcelona and it just worked OK. The leather is not soft so it didn't give much and it was a bit too small to put wallet, phone and glasses in. While I thought I'd love the color, I wish I'd just bought the black.

I was looking for a small and sleek looking purse and this one fit the bill. However, it has not held up well over the past months. The corners began to wear within weeks of owning it and the leather scratches easily. It also really could benefit from an internal key latch as my keys always fall to the bottom. For a small purse, I spend quite a bit of time trying to find things in it. I do get compliments on its style all the time. I just wish the leather was more durable.
