Suede and Leather Medium 797 Satchel
Watch out with ordering the lighter colors!
I ordered this bag as my first "out-of-college-big-girl-bag" and spent months researching the perfect bag at the $500 price point and fell in LOVE with this design.
When the Tory Burch Friends and Family sale gave me an extra 25% off, I pulled the trigger on this bag in the "Rock Grey" color, and let me say, I am extremely disappointed with the quality of this bag.
First of all, the gold hardware that holds the leather flap closure (which was one of my fave details on the bag) is tilted to about a 45 degree angle instead of being a straight line. When you open the flap, the placket was clearly attached poorly and is glaringly obvious.
Also, after owning this item for one week, the bag won't stand up by itself. It completely slouches in half when I set it upright.
The biggest issue, however, is the suede on the bag. If you intend on wearing this as a crossbody bag and order it in the grey or the mustard color, watch out for some serious denim stains on the suede. The back of the bag is half suede and, after wearing it for one day, the entire suede section on the back and on the side was dyed a dark denim color.
Sorry for the long review, but I feel if you plan to spend $525 on this bag, as cute as it is, go with the leather 797 or the dark green. I am really sad this one didn't work out for me :(

I love the design of the bag, which is cute and fashionable.
