    I just received this bag UPS. When I opened it everything looked fine until I unzipped the bag and the lining is not like the picture shows with the polk-a-dots. It’s a hot-pink with ‘Kate Spade” on it all over that is shinier than the pink background. I know 2 people that have Rachelle bags and both of them have the polk-a-dot interior. Also, inside the bag on the side pocket zipper is some kind of security tag. I’m starting to wonder if this bag is a fake or was stolen….. I’m not finding a lot of pictures with pink liners. The bag itself (if it’s real….) is beautiful.

    1st: I didn’t buy this on amazon… I got extremely lucky one day at a nearby outlet. I went to kill some time in between some appointments and I happened to pick a day when the Kate Spade store was having a massive sale. The kind of sale where it’s impossible to walk by without going inside…. the kind of sale where the savings exceed the amount of money you’ll be paying… it was impossible to leave without buying this bag which I had been eyeing for months.

    It is beautiful. It is simple and elegant and just… wow. :)

    However, be forewarned… the reason I loved it is because of the sleek look of the leather… after half a year it is no longer so sleek. I am a teacher so maybe I beat up on it a little more than a normal person but it started getting little wrinkles about a month after I bought it. They are now very pronounced which kind of ruins the whole reason I bought it. I know leather tends to do this after a while due to use but many of the wrinkles are appearing in places where I wouldn’t typically expect them to… like right in the middle of the bag where it shouldn’t get any wear or tear. I think this has happened because of the second feature I loved about this bag: the depth of the zippers. By this I mean that the bag zips almost all the way down on both sides which is AWESOME for a bag this tall. However, maybe that has caused the broad sides to have a little less support than other bags of a similar style when they are unzipped.

    Also both of the little leather zipper pulls have snapped off.

    Fortunately Kate Spade has an awesome warranty policy and I can get all of this fixed. Also, I didn’t pay full price… in fact I paid about 1/4th of the price… so my “I PAID SO MUCH MONEY FOR THIS AND IT’S BREAKING!” rage hasn’t reared its ugly head. It probably would have if I HAD paid full price.

    Despite it all, I’d still be happy to keep it as is because it really is gorgeous even with the issues I’ve just described. It’s my best friend and I love it. You will too, I promise! The positives way outweigh the negatives. :)
