    The picture they showed of the girl holding the bag made it look HUGE. It’s not that big, which is good. I didn’t want huge. It’s more of what I would call a medium sized purse. Glad I didn’t see the picture before I ordered or I wouldn’t have ordered it. The bag itself is perfect, great size, LOTS of room. I like that it has a detachable shoulder strap. I think this bag and I will be together for a long time. The only cons are 1) the interior is extremely roomy, and there’s really no organization to it. It’s a free-for-all in there. 2) THE SMELL. Dear God the smell is horrendous. It comes from the faux leather on the straps. The bag arrives sealed in a plastic bag, which I’m sure didn’t help. I opened the package Tuesday night and here it is Sunday and I can still smell it. At work I had to put the bag away from my desk because the fumes were overpowering. However, I can tell now that the smell is finally starting to dissipate. YAY. I almost gave up on this bag because of the toxic odor, but if you can stick it out this bag is worth it, if you like this floppy type of hobo bag.

    This is a nice looking bag — I would’ve much preferred it if the straps were black and not brown. The black would match the graffiti details much better. The main problem is the odor. It smells like chemicals and it smalls really strong. I’ve let it air out for about 5 days now and it still smells. I’m going to try spraying it with Febreeze or another smell deodorizer. If that doesn’t work, it will be donated. If you have allergies — look elsewhere!

    Smells awful!, March 2, 2016

    I really like the look of this bag and it’s roomy! But the smell!!! It has a very strong gasoline smell. I left it draped over a chair for a few days to “air out” and no improvement. I decided to chance it and wash it with heavily scented fabric softener. A slight improvement but I’m not sure I’ll even be able to use it. It is cute so I’m going to try to tackle the smell a bit longer before I return. I’ll update if I was successful.
