Striking suede leather bag
I love the look of this bag, BUT the very first time that I wore it, the clasp to the shoulder strap broke in two, and the bag dropped off of my shoulder. I think the workmanship on the bag is far superior to whatever the material is which the clasps are made of, and I was hoping to let people Ms. Quispe know that she may want to reconsider her source for those clasps. I will now mount a search for a matching clasp, so that I can continue to use the bag.

I bought this for my wife to carry her work papers and ipad in. She says it is too good for that and plans to use it as a weekend bag. It is very sturdy and stylish.
I call this my happiness phone case. Every time I look at it, it makes me smile. It also is so practical! Its the perfect size for my phone, keys, tissues, etc.
