This is a beautiful purse- seems to be real leather. This bag was made very nicely, however- the red was that they use on the edging is horrible. Very thick and overlaps in many areas to the front. The “LV” tag is very disappointing: there’s a large area at the top of the tag where the light pink is scraped away, which is very eye catching and at the bottom of the tag, the red wax is overlapped and is all over the point of the tag- argh!!!!! The bag was shipped w/o a box, and came inside a very poor replica of what u cld call a dust bag. The bag was stuffed so it didn’t lose its shape or have any indents in it, which was nice. The shoulder strap is pretty flimsy, but the hardware is very nice. This bag is beautiful EXCEPT for the trim work (red wax) and the LV tag. Does have a chemical like odor.
