Just purchased my second Little Minka bag. These bags are marvelous - the leather in the Cobble Hill line is amazing - so buttery soft and high quality. The bag is incredibly functional - I love the main compartment that is so easy to access by just lifting the flap. The zippered compartment also provides good space without intruding into the main compartment. I've never had any issues with items falling out of the main compartment or with the magnet failing to keep the flap down. The color I ordered this time is Empire Grey. It's one of the most beautiful shades I've ever seen in leather. The color name is a bit of a misnomer if one is looking for a true grey. I think of a true grey as having a range of shades with varying degrees of white and black. The Empire Grey color is more of a stormy blue to me. It's absolutely gorgeous - a fabulous hue with great depth to it. I can't recommend Kate Spade products highly enough - I love them all and have never been disappointed with the quality. The Little Minka bag is no exception - it's a beautiful bag and a joy to carry!

This is a lovely little bag. It is very versatile with both a handle and cross-body strap. The leather is soft and durable; very good quality for the price. And the green is a good eye-pop of color.

I've been looking for a chic and upscale everyday summer purse and boy have I found it. The softness, color, and smell of this purse are all indications that it is very high quality (as if there was a doubt with Kate Spade!) My only worry was that the magnetic closure won't be safe enough, but it closes shut strongly, and the flap is long enough that it doesn't come open. It's soft and slouchy when it doesn't have a hard, flat object in it. It's a look I like. I wear it with everything - over the shoulder with maxi skirts for a shabby chic look, and over the arm with more formal or preppy outfits. The short handle fits over the shoulder too for ease of carrying and extra safety. The inside is beautiful. The zip pocket carries my small loose items: lipstick, chapstick, small lotion. I tuck my iPhone in the slip pocket that's just the right size, and the rest of it comfortably holds my pocketbook, keychain with ID, big sunglass case and medium sized prescription glass case. My iPad mini also fits comfortably in addition to this. I also have a full sized iPad from work. It fits too, but it was too heavy on my shoulder. I was worried about it straining the strap. The size of the inside of the purse is just right for a full sized iPad though, to give an idea. I also love that the bottom has four studs for protection. I don't sit it down much, but it's good to know they are there. I can't recommend this bag enough. It was half off when I bought it - that is the best deal I got all year!

My husband bought this bag for me as I'd been lusting after it for months. I don't want to repeat what the previous reviewer before me said, as everything she stated was spot on. Please read her review in addition to mine. Firstly, the quality of the leather is outstanding. It's smooshy, soft and very luxurious. At the same time, it appears to be a bag that will last a good few years. I chose the color in Affogato - a neutral that leans towards nude but is a few shades darker...like a coffee with lots of milk stirred into it. It will not show up every stain like a white or cream bag would as it's just that little bit darker in color. I'm 5 ft 8 and the Little Minka size suits my frame perfectly. It holds quite a lot - all the usual essentials such as sunglasses, large wallet, keys, makeup bag, phone. You can carry your ipad safely in the compartment that is part of the flap. I prefer an unstructured bag that moulds to the shape of my body as I wear it cross body. That's what this bag does. I prefer to not put too much in it so that it looks even more slouchy. If you fill it up, it becomes more structured and stands on its feet. I would say if you're looking for a bag that is very structured and stays upright like it does in the picture, choose a different bag. This bag is not too heavy (Fossil, I'm talking to you) and is just a delight to carry. It resists stains as it's been pretreated. The cute interior stripy pattern is silky and feminine. I love how there is no huge logo emblazoned on the front of the bag - just a sweet, tiny little spade with Kate Spade very discreetly printed on the front. The long strap used for cross body wearing can easily be removed if you prefer to use it as a shoulder bag or carry it on your arm. The cross body strap shares the links that are on the short strap. The older little minkas had two extra rings so that the long strap can be clipped onto its own rings. Whether that it to save on costs or not, I really don't care because it does make the bag lighter to carry and also even more simple and stream lined. I like the classic, minimalist look - the less bling and clutter the better. All in all, this is the bag for me. I'm very pleased with it. I also think the price point is worth it for what you get. It's a luxury bag for a fair price.

I purchased the last Little Minka in Atlantic Blue. The color and zip flap were what drew me to this bag in the first place. It arrived days before I expected it (kudos, Zappos!!) and it is just awesome. I LOVE the color, and it is extremely well made. At first, I felt like it was too big for my short-ish stature (5'4" x 118lbs), but then I added items (wallet, phone, brush, umbrella), and the great shape of the bag stood out and it no longer felt large. I kind of wish it had one more notch in the cross body strap to make it a little shorter, but that is definitely not enough to send it back.

Love this purse, is my third one that flips over like this. Love the color is a pinkish peach. Just gorgeous and soft and so expensive feeling. Love it! Plus I love how the gold accents are on it. So mellow and smooth I don't mind wearing silver with this purse at all.

This the nicest purse I've ever owned. The leather is unbelievably soft and rich to the touch and feels so luxurious. The interior is really cute too, gold and white striped. I love that all of the metallic accents are a light gold, it's tasteful but still gives a hint of shine. Plus this bag is big enough to hold a lot and lays nicely flat when you wear it as a cross body. It's Kate Spade, you really can't go wrong.

Just received this handbag in plum, and it is just a beautiful color. On top of that, soft leather, comfortable on the shoulder, and roomy. Another Kate Spade winner. Five stars.

I would highly recommend this bag. I have gotten numerous compliments on it. The leather is softer than any bag I have ever owned and you can tell it is well made. The skinny longer strap does make it hard to wear cross body when you have a lot of belongings in the purse, however, you can easily lighten the load by using the smaller hand strap. I purchased in the african violet color, because it was on sale, which was a little bit of a stretch for me but it almost works as a neutral. I think I will have this bag for years. My ipad easily fits in the back wall-zip pocket when I am traveling.

Can't say enough good things about this bag. The leather is so soft, it's the perfect size, I love that it can be worn on the shoulder or on my arm. I got it in the light blue color and I noticed that with dark jeans, it leaves marks on the bag. But a little Kate Spade leather cleaner took it right off. Love!

Gorgeous color. Love the surprisingly huge zippered compartment that folds over. Love the duel handles. Wish they also made one like this style but a little smaller and other colors as well.

Beautiful and versatile bag. Love the adjustable crossbody option along with being able to wear it hobo style. While the main compartment doesn't have a zipper (does have inside zip pocket), the fold over portion of the bag provides a nice place to secure those items you want to keep a bit safer. As always the Zappos experience can't be beat. Love the overnight shipping!

Love it. I went on a limb with the frioza color, but its gorgeous. It's definitely a statement bag, but classic at the same time. This is my first Kate Spade handbag and I'm impressed. Even my boyfriend commented that he likes this bag and he's totally oblivious to things like this.

I really love this bag. The leather is so soft and yet it has a very nice structured look. When its filled it sags nicely and not unsightly. I like the size as well...at first I thought it was a little too big for what I was looking for, but the more I used it I realized that it was perfect. Its a great size for carrying an iPad, and small books. I purchased the Dusty Mint color and I plan on using it a lot in the summer for taking to class since my iPad houses all my textbooks and notes. The strap is long and comfortable, the handle is a little stiff but I think with use it'll get more pliable. All in all this is a great bag from Kate Spade, my first from Kate Spade actually and I plan on buying more from the line! The fold overs are so cute! I highly recommend it!

Love this bag! The leather is super soft and I adore the somewhat slouchy style it takes on. I normally go with a hobo style bag, but decided to try something different this time, and I couldn't be happier!

This is really not a "Little" bag, but I like it more - it perfectly fits my daily use to take iPad and files. The color is the very first reason I want to have this bag, lovely and outstanding. And the leather is so comfortable soft.

Emerald color is darker than it appears here. It's a nice fall color. Bag could definitely benefit from an outside pocket as others have said, but otherwise is very light, stylish, and functional.

I ordered this in plum and it was gorgeous plus it was at a great sale price. I usually carry a tote or satchel and like some structure to my bags. This Kate leather is like butter, hence the bag is too...too floppy for my taste...sniff, sniff it must go back!
