I really liked this bag, but had to return it because the zipper broke the first day I used it. The broken zipper looked like it was made of plastic that was coated with brass/golden paint material. I was so disappointed since this is not an inexpensive bag. The quality of the hardware is not the same as the other two Botkier bags I own.

This satchel is absolutely gorgeous, a subtle and elegant shade of lavender in sumptuous glove quality leather. The only reasons I am not giving it 5 stars are (1) lack of feet on the bottom of the bag -- serious pet peeve of mine -- and (2) the zipper tends to stick, a problem which I hope will abate with time. Overall though, I think this will make a wonderful addition to anyone's spring/summer hand bag wardrobe!

Love this bag. It's a great size (not huge) and has a more interesting look than most bags I've seen. Just enough razzle dazzle with the pink lining and zippers for my taste, without being over the top, and quality leather. A good amount of compartments inside. Like this brand and happy that the brand is not so immediately recognizable (like Kate Spade or Marc Jacobs). One thing though, I wish the hand straps were a little longer to fit it on my shoulder.

Just received this today. First, love love love the style - got the magenta (which is really more of a purple, looks as shown in picture), and the color is gorgeous. Good size, seems like it would be comfy to carry, etc. Haven't really disassembled all the "wrappings" yet - I'm hesitant on whether to keep it, and here's why - as soon as I opened the box, I noticed a rather strong smell. I'm guessing it's the leather (?) or perhaps something used in the finishing process, I really have no idea. I'm not even one to normally notice smells but this is rather off-putting. So I'm torn - style is great, but not sure if the odor will wear off with time. If it weren't for that, I would definitely keep it based on the style of the bag.

At last, after many orders, returns and exchanges I'm keeping, using and enjoying this bag. Am used to a shoulder strap which is why only four stars for comfort. Color is not as camel as pictured, more, well, army. Handy secure and fun.

I loved my Valentina bag at first. But then, six months in, the strap for the cross body broke. I wrote to Botkier, and they offered to replace the whole bag to see what was wrong. Then, they said their new bags weren't the same quality of leather (!), so they only gave me a replacement strap. That strap also broke a year later, and this time Botkier hasn't answered a single one of my inquiries about repair or replacement, which was really frustrating after the good customer service I got a year ago. The stitching has also come done on part of the bag. Honestly, it's a beautiful bag when it comes to design, but if it broke twice for me, I wouldn't be surprised if it eventually broke for everyone. If you're going to spend this much on a handbag, get a Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, or a Coach -- at least Coach openly advertises a repair service for the life of your bag. I've had one for 7 years, and the craftsmanship is much better than the Valentina. You're just better off investing your money elsewhere.

The base is 15" so not as humongous as described. It's still sizable though and I love the outside, zippered pocket. Other people might carry a laptop in it, I carry a large book. This purse is big, can be slung over the shoulder and I can slip one strap down, rummage around in there, and still keep it on my shoulder. Certainly the most expensive purse I have ever purchased (ouch!) but also the best made and best looking.

I have tried both the first generation and the second generation of Valentina satchel. They're both fantastic. The first generation is the simplier design. It is currently my daily bag as it's beautiful, soft, and roomy enough to fit everything I need (including my ipad) without being too bulky. The second generation is the one with the extra metallic lines running down the front of the bag. The leather quality is a step up - it's so smooth, you'll want to rub your face on it! The second gen also seems a little sturdier, a little more spacious, and it has a cool extra back pocket with a magnetic clasp. The only cons with this bag is that it has no structure (can't stand alone) and no feet. But if you don't mine that, lovely bags.

I LOVE this handbag!I searched for a ideal bag for a while and I returned several bags on other sites before. It's really difficult to find a good one. When I received this bag and I thought "That's it!" I am so happy I don't need to look for anymore because I have this one. And my payment had some problem and I called the customer service for help. The girls who picked up my call were really friendly and helpful. I definitely will come back to buy something here.

I purchased the black and white crocodile style bag. Love this bag! Perfect size, nice light weight leather, great handle length, and a crossbody strap too. Beautiful design. Very minimal, yet sophisticated. The only mini minus is that it doesn't have feet to protect the bottom.

I have two of these bags. They are beautiful in design and very well made. I don't love things, yet I do richly enjoy this beautiful bag. The sale price here on Zappos is a great buy. This is an American Designer and I am happy to have two of her bags. If you're on the fence, let me reiterate the quality is exceptional. You will not be disappointed!!!.... :)
