I have searched for a nice, black crossbody bag for over a year. While I typically don't look at designer brands, I gravitated to this bag because it was everything I was looking for. Lightweight, quality fabric & construction, cute, full of pockets, lightweight and comfortable. I have since bought the same bag in hunter green leather version.

This purse is cute and holds more than you think - but after 2 months of use the stitching on the handle frayed so badly that I was unable to continue using it. No idea why this happened as I didn't subject the purse to any unusual stress - just daily wear, carrying it around. I'm terribly disappointed that an item at this price would be made with such low quality and will never order this brand again.

Cute bag, but I ended up returning it. I am 5'10" and even on the longest setting, the strap hit me at a weird point - not quite long enough. Overall, was very happy with the organizational features of the handbag. Material would be easy to clean, it's very lightweight, and I was drawn to the hardware details. I guess I wasn't paying attention to the description because I was very pleasantly surprised to realize the zipper on the fold-over is functional and opens up a pocket all the way down the flap and back of the purse. Plenty of room for wallet, phone, water bottle and small cosmetic, etc.

Love this bag! The color is slightly darker than in the picture, but the material is nice (easy to take care of) and the strap is the perfect length for carrying around easily. I am happy with my purchase!

I am positively in love with this bag. I have been lusting after it for years and finally purchased it for upcoming travel purposes and it is literally perfect. It is spacious, but not too large. It is VERY lightweight (which is of the utmost importance when traveling) and it is incredibly stylish. I am very picky about the accents on accessories I buy, and the gold accents on this bag blend so beautifully with the cement color, I couldn't possibly complain. Overall this bag is very versatile and functional and I cannot wait for my vacation so I can use it!

Perfect for the Pacific NW and for travel everywhere! It's stylish but practical with a high quality fabric to handle the rain and lots of space for an umbrella, an extra sweater, iPad, smartphone, book, glasses, cosmetics, wallet, just anything you like to carry. Did I mention cute and fashionable? It's got it all.

Love it! I have a toddler and always hate carrying my big diaper bag, so I purchased this to carry my stuff plus a diaper and wipes. It is the perfect size plus it is a great bag to have! Classic and great for traveling too! I wish I could afford all colors! I have the black and really like it!

Love this purse! Perfect size, nice compartments. I originally wanted the leather one because of the color options (also twice the price) but I'm thrilled with the quality of this one and it's easy clean. The little tag can be easily removed.

Love this bag. I was surprised at how much it holds for a smaller bag. I love the deep pocket on the front flap. Have received many compliments on the style. Very pleased.

While I absolutely love this bag - great size and goes with everything - I'm extremely disappointed with the durability. After maybe 4 months, the strap began to fray and it is now basically unwearable. For the price, I would expect much better quality. Very disappointing.

I wanted to love this bag but the strap has started to breakdown and come apart after only six months! I only use this bag on the weekends, too. I was very disappointed in the quality for such an expensive little bag.

I really like the weight of this bag but for the price, the quality is poor. I just received this bag and noticed the chip on the "pleather" material. I love the style of this purse and the weight is perfect for traveling; however, the poor quality is something I can't let go. I love Zappos and their speeding shipping but I think I will stick to ordering shoes with them and not purses...will be returning this.

This casual bag is great for daily use or travel. It is a good size, not too big and not too small, enough room for all my essentials, and like other reviewers, I can toss in a shawl or scarf in the evening in case I need it.

Perfect size. Not too small and not too big that it hurts my shoulder. I can fit my wallet, keys, cell phone, bulky sunglass case, work badge and reusable grocery bag in this while still using the compartments for small things like lip gloss and hand sanitizer. No need for anything bigger. Its also lighter weight than leather which is a benefit for me.

Great bag! Quite a bit smaller than I expected, given some of the reviews, but a nice size nonetheless. The fabric is a nice quality and the strap provides good length options for either cross body or shoulder. I don't understand why they attach a big and useless luggage tag on the front, but it removes easily. Very pleased!

I've had this bag for a year and a half now, and it's holding up brilliantly! I have the navy striped/orange polka dotted design, and I've received many compliments on it. My previous cross-body bag weighed me down and hurt my back and shoulders, but this bag is super light and easy to grab and put on. The zippered compartment in the front is perfect to put valuables/hygiene products. I took off the ID tag and put it on my luggage case instead. The capacity of the bag is also perfect--you can put a lot in, although it gets heavy and the narrow straps tend to cut down into your shoulders. I know I'll use this bag for years. I'm so glad I got this bag, and on sale too!

This is the best everyday and travel bag ever. The beauty of this bag for travel is the gold finishing on the black - it dresses it up just enough to use it when you are going out for dinner. You don't have to switch bags and look shulumpy! It also holds a lot and doesn't look bulky. I just returned from London where I used it every day and didn't have to bring an evening bag.

I absolutely LOVE this bag. The picture currently online is a dark grey, but the item is black (per the color selection/drop-down). I was fine receiving either color! There are three large pockets - the flip up zipped pocket, another main pocket, and the front (open) pocket. I can fit my (large) wallet, two cell phones, and makeup in the main pocket. I'm sure it will be a handy bag for everyday! I love the nylon - easy to wipe off.

I got this bag because I was having shoulder pain and could no longer carry a shoulder bag comfortably. It is a great little bag that holds a lot of stuff and is light to carry. It has 2 big compartments (along with a small zipper one) and expands to a comfortable depth. The cross body style has been great for me and is roomy enough to carry everyday. I highly recommend this bag.

Great sized bag. I carry wallet, phone, knitting, other stuffs - love it. I like that it is easy to clean with the nylon-ish outside, since I have a 2 year old. Fancies up most anything I wear. I dig it.

I love this bag! Marc Jacobs never seems to disappoint! I purchased this bag with the intention of using it on my trip abroad....it is lightweight, stylish, not to small or too big, and has plenty of pockets. You will not be disappointed with this purchase! Zappos actually offers a cheaper price than other sellers & I received my bag the next business day with regular shipping! Thanks Zappos for great customer service!

I bought this bag because I thought it would be great for a vacation I was taking in Europe and I was right...it was perfect. Lightweight and you can carry a lot in it. It's hands free and really secure with an optional zipper. I am thinking of buying it in another color.
