I need your opinion.


So for my birthday, I got something that I have been wanting for a long time. A fleabag! Super excited. But when it finally arrived...it was a bit bigger than I expected. I should have looked at the dimensions. My bad. And it is still a great bag, don't get me wrong...but I wanted to use it as a purse. Does it look too big for everyday use? The other problem I had with it is the buckles. I kind of thought they were faux. Now you don't have to use them to keep the bag shut...but I think they look a little messy with them undone. Again, GREAT bag..no fault of the company..I just should have read the fine print a little better. Do you think I should return it? I LOVE the way it looks. I just can't make a decision to save my life.

I love a large bag, because I need a large bag! However, sometimes a bag that's too deep makes it difficult to find things. If that's not an issue for you, the bag looks beautiful! I use clear zipper makeup bags to keep all of my small items organized in my big bags. If you're feeling crafty (and have the time), you can convert the buckle closures into magnetic closures. Just a thought.

oooh--if I could figure out how to make them into magnetic closures--I tooootally would! Any tips!?

I don't think it looks too big at all... in fact, I love it!!

It is really cute!!! But seriously, working buckles with no trick snap? That would be a deal breaker for me!
