    The bag itself is fine. The delivery – not so much., November 3, 2015

    I have been a fan of Marc by Marc Jacob’s bags for some time. I love the Classic Q line, and own quite a few of them, all of which I still currently use. This was my first purchase of the New Q line, and while it doesn’t quite meet what I’ve come to expect from MBMJ, it’s still a well made handbag.
    When compared to the original Natasha, the bag itself seems a little smaller, though the strap is thicker, allowing for more shoulder support – useful when carrying a lot of things or for longer days. The color, cement, is a warm, beautiful, neutral color that can be worn year round. The interior is a pretty shade of burgundy – very fall. The leather, while not as supple as his earlier lines, is still substantial and a lot better than other brands of this price point, in my humble opinion – it could be though, that I am just a fan of pebbled, thicker leather, it seems more durable. I stand at 5’7″, and I am currently 32 weeks pregnant, and the strap is plenty long enough to accommodate both my height and baby bump and still settle at my hip (I prefer my cross body bags to hang a little lower).

    My disappointment comes from the delivery of the bag. I received what I feel to be a used handbag. I DID NOT purchase this from the Amazon Warehouse; this was for a new item. The bag I received has no dust bag, no care or merchandise cards, and multiple scratches on the hardware consistent with some use. The interior did not look new, and was accompanied by what looks like some animal fur, possibly a cat or dog. I’ve ordered multiple handbags from Amazon before, and this is the first time I’ve been disappointed.

    So. The bag itself is great if you prefer a more subtle, structured, slightly smaller cross body with a more versatile strap complimented by a shoulder pad for added support. I’m still a fan of MBMJ, and were it not for my preference of larger bags(going on baby number 2 here), I would probably consider keeping it. I do still prefer the older Classic Q Natasha, but this is a nice update which offers the same features – just slightly different – if that makes sense.

    I absolutely love the quality of the leather on this bag, October 5, 2015

    I absolutely love the quality of the leather on this bag, it’s soft but not to the point where it’s slouchy and loses it’s shape. It is very spacious and can carry so many items, for a cross-body bag the size is perfect. I am 5ft 4″ and the bag doesn’t hang too low over my shoulder. I originally wanted the Classic Q Natasha bag, but I am so glad I got this instead. The only reason why this didn’t get a 5-star rating is because the straps are way too thick and bulky in my opinion, it kind of looks like the straps of a laptop case. But overall, this bag is amazing and I recommend it to everyone.
