I received my full Crossbody bag today. I love it. In one of the reviews someone mentioned an odor, but I don’t agree. It just smells like a new leather purse. Not offensive at all. When I placed my order I chose the black but the next morning I had second thoughts and emailed the company to see if I could change to the grey before it was shipped. I received an email from Carmen within a couple hours letting me know that they would send me the grey instead of the black without having to cancel the order and starting over. How wonderful that was. Thank you. I received the purse within 3 days. From CA to PA, that’s pretty amazing. I did order a longer chain today. I’m not as thin as the models so the purse doesn’t really land exactly where I would like. I will take both with me to London and see how it goes. Great job girls!!
