Was searching for a black patent leather, cross-body purse, found this gorgeous D&B instead. What's not to love about it? It has two zippers, it holds my wallet, makeup bag, sunglasses (big case), mp3 player, even an umbrella some days, has plenty of pockets for easy access to phone, pens and the miscellaneous things we carry, a key fob with an extra long strap, and feet. I love the size and the balance, it's not huge and it's so easy to carry. The strap is only a shoulder strap, but because I really like the bag, I just replace the shoulder strap with my own cross-body strap when I want to wear it that way. So, I can wear it dressy or I can wear it casual - each style works very well with this bag because of how gorgeous and balanced it is. Excellent quality, too.

I love this bag. I bought it because the lovely spring weather we have been having made me want a patent leather bag (it does pretty well in the Pacific Northwest rain, too!). This is a great size bag and nicely finished with the red edges to the vegetable tanned leather trim. I then bought a pair of Kate Spade Tock ballet flats in vintage patent - they go together perfectly. I highly recommend this.

I have to say the patent yellow is such a happy color. I smile every time I look at this satchel. There is a ton of room for everything and it is lightweight so I really like this happy bag. I would give 5 stars, but the handles don't lay all the way down if you use the long strap so I give it 4 stars. Maybe in time they will lay down. I still really like this bag a lot.
