If YOU like it, get it. I think their are much cuter/classy bags. But who cares what others thinkbrio8151/11/2013 10:59PM

It doesn't thrill me - if you want that style with side zip, get a Zac Posen satchel insteadmakeupdee1/11/2013 11:53AM

Nay not very inspiring...looks cheap...probably the pantent leathertracygray1/9/2013 6:24PM

Not worth the price IMO. The color is seasonable & the zipper on the side is a nail bitter for sure!magixz1/9/2013 1:33PM

It's very pretty. I would never pay that much for it or any bag for that matter.++jatkins1/9/2013 11:17AM

I love it. pretchel1/9/2013 9:11AM

nay - I think you can find so much betterlinjam1/8/2013 2:25PM

nay.. sorryangelbaybee1431/8/2013 1:31PM

I like it. Classic shape, not super trendy, and not specific to any season.northender1/8/2013 1:04PM

See, I ADORE this tote, but unfortunately don't have $1600+ lying around to drop on it:queenuvhearts81/8/2013 12:00PM

ime it's better to save up for what you really want thinker1of31/8/2013 12:50PM

That's my dream bag. Sorry...it aint $1600-more like $2400-$2600 unless you get it pre-loved.crista1/8/2013 12:38PM

Whoops! Just did a quick google search and came across a misprint. Yeah, $2400 is gonna be a while queenuvhearts81/8/2013 2:54PM

NO tote is worth that much to me.MUACat1/11/2013 5:09PM

Agreed. Even if you're a millionaire that's just beyond ridiculous for a bag. brio8151/11/2013 10:58PM

i would still save up. i love it.gingerkitten1/8/2013 12:48PM

Maybe a fw yrs dwn the line for me...so much mre I cld do w/that $$$. By the time I want to buy..rocrista1/8/2013 1:38PM

gotcha.crista1/8/2013 2:34PM

can you slowly save up for it? that is fabulous. gingerkitten1/8/2013 12:32PM

The detailing is a bit over-fussy for me, but honestly, if you love it, get it.artbabe1/8/2013 11:54AM

thispecker1/8/2013 1:23PM

Nay for me. Milly bags usually miss the mark for me tho. Also looks like BR and u can prob rop...crista1/8/2013 11:42AM

nay. I don't find the shape, detailing, or hardware all that appelaingmooracr031/8/2013 11:22AM

2nd, sorryDollarMenu1/8/2013 11:27AM

Nay. You could find something like that at BRtigeratty1/8/2013 11:17AM

So, basically the style is unoriginal and probably not worth the designer price? (it'd be $212)queenuvhearts81/8/2013 11:18AM

pbi - if you save this $212 for the bag you really want you're around 12% there :)thinker1of31/8/2013 12:55PM

lol good point!queenuvhearts81/8/2013 2:55PM

Thats not really a designer price, so if you like it, get it.rahnstaaap1/8/2013 11:43AM

pbi: to me it doesn't look designer at all, it looks so cheap (sorry)gizmorules1/8/2013 11:20AM

No! No apologies necessary...this is why I ask. I don't want to spend $$ just to look like I was queenuvhearts81/8/2013 11:22AM

kate spade looks nice for structured but there are many etsy sellers too - can someone chime in +gizmorules1/8/2013 11:31AM

nay for me jennate1/8/2013 11:06AM

ditto. sorrytobin1/8/2013 11:08AM

Any particular reason why? Just curious :)queenuvhearts81/8/2013 11:10AM

nay for me because of patent leather, nmsPeggyBundy1/8/2013 11:12AM

the handles and it doesn't look unique.but get it if you love it!tobin1/8/2013 11:23AM

I'm not sure if I love it, if that makes sense; probably the reason I came on here to vet it :)queenuvhearts81/8/2013 11:25AM
