Iu2019m pretty pleased with this bag. I was skeptical after reading some of the comments. Itu2019s partially shiny, which is to be expected with a synthetic material (unless it says matte). I ran water on the sides, no water came through at all. If people want a completely waterproof, hermetically sealed bag, they should probably add a sealing spray or wax over the zippers and stitching and be sure to close the top tightly when itu2019s raining. That seems pretty basic to me and applies to most outerwear. People complained about straps breaking so Iu2019ve pulled fairly hard on mine prior to use, and they seem pretty darn sturdy. The zippers and hardware appear to be all metal rather than plastic. Metal zippers should hold up well if they are aligned properly when zipped and if they arenu2019t yanked on too hard (thatu2019s pretty basic). The smell inside wasnu2019t much different than any new synthetic plastic item, after being aired out for a few hours itu2019s fine. A few scented dryer sheets in the bottom did the trick for me nicely. Only time will tell how it holds up (I will report back), but it seems pretty darned good so far.

The purse is very cute and I have gotten a ton of compliments on it. My only complaints are that the fabric really holds creases (I've only had it about a week and you can already see a crease in the side where it bends when its opened) and that it is not actually waterproof. I'm sure the fabric is, but the design in such that there are two small holes beside the flaps when it is closed (you can't see it in the selling picture). So the books I had in it got wet when I was in the rain, which is a bit frustrating because I bought it primarily because it is waterproof.
Having said that, it is really nice. Otherwise, looks just like the picture. It seems durable and it can be dressed up or down. And like I said, many people have asked me where I've gotten it.

I rarely review products but this one I feel that I should. I bought this because of the good reviews. I've had it for maybe a month and half and the strap is already ripping at the top. The only thing it holds is my wallet, cell phone, keys and maybe some lipstick. I wouldn't recommend it. it's not durable at all. I would really like to return it if I could and I may look into that.

I ordered this backpack for an extended weekend trip to Chicago and it was the best purchase I made for the trip. I selected next day delivery and received it by 9pm the next evening. The bag fit my wallet, hat, mitts, gloves, Uniqlo jacket, DSRL camera and charger.
Being petite, 5'2 and about 110 pounds, I find it super difficult to find a backpack that looks right on my smaller frame. This bag is the perfect size for me. It has completely adjustable straps which make it easy to pull off a slouchy look when it isn't as full but also gives the support your back needs when it is full and a bit heavier.
The only two things I find annoying but can overlook are: 1. the material is a bit scrunched below the flap from the way it was shipped. I wish it was stuffed with air packets to avoid this. I'll definitely be storing this with something in it to avoid exaggerating this. 2. because the drawstrings have metal caps, they clink together and the sound is a bit annoying when you're walking. I simply tucked them into the bag to fix this. Overall, I like the metal finish and wouldn't want that to change.
Bottom line: I would order this bag again and would definitely recommend it to a friend.
P.S. for those wondering, this definitely wouldn't fit a 13 inch Macbook.

I was extremely disappointed in the size. In the picture it looks like it would hold a lot more. Just my wallet and 2 other small pieces fit
The backpack hold the bend it was delivered with.
I would not recommend the backpack if you are looking to have more storage.
I thought the two zippers were compartments rather than just expanders.
I would like to know if this company make bigger backpacks because I canu2019t use this one

I love this backpack a lot. It's beautiful and it doesn't have a fake leather smell at all like some cheaper bags do and it's a good size. HOWEVER within a month of purchase one of the straps started to tear at the seam. I tried stitching it back on but it kept ripping until it broke completely after another week. I tried sewing it back on, but the fabric was so soft, the stitching would just tear the fabric and break again and again. Eventually I just tied the strap around the top loop, but then a week later, the bottom of the other strap detached as well. I don't think I was ever very rough with the bag so I guess it's more of a construction issue. Very sad though as I do love it's look and it's size. I might try sewing it up again to see if i can salvage it still.

This backpack is very cute. It works well for any outfit and is very light weight. I am still getting used to the waterproof material but overall it feels like the backpack will last a long time. Highly recommended if you are looking for a small backpack to take to town!

Overall the bag is well made. It fits your large wallet, water bottle (s'well regular size), a snack and a small make-up bag. The only downsize, is I would have preferred a zipper opening for the main compartment vs the pull-open method. found it took more time and would fluster with my bag. Other then that, GREAT bag. Love the flower design.
