Kate Spade Grove Street Carli Reviews
The bag is really pretty. The measurements were a little different then described. I measured it at 12″ long X 10″ high and 5″ deep. The outside front has a slip pocket which is great for your cell phone and has a zipper compartment inside. It came very well packaged and seems to be the “Real Deal”. (having purchased many KS bags) It did not come with a dust bag but, not all KS bags have one. The price on amazon was very good.
This is a beautiful purse. I initially saw it on the KS website, but it was on sale with no returns. Then I looked here, and it was on Prime for the same price with free returns.BTW, the picture here on Amazon is terrible with a yellow tone, and not indicative of the true color of the bag. I don’t know why they chose to use those pics. I am including a few of my own.I also went to the hardware store and got some brass 3/4 inch D rings. As you can see from the pics, I attached them to the bag where the hand straps are. By attaching the shoulder strap to the D rings, it makes the bag more stable and balanced. Otherwise, the bag has a tendency to lean over when using the shoulder strap. Two D rings cost less than $1 each, and it was super simple to do. Just attach one D ring on the base of the front handle, and then attach the second one diagonally on the back of the bag. See pic for more info.
This is my very first Kate Spade hand bag. I have always a predilection for Kate Spade brand for its reasonable price range under $500.00 per bag and the simplicity design/layout look. There are several interior pockets to keep your pen, public transportation travel card in place without shuffling to the bottom and scrambling to search for these items when needed. I love the main zipper closure for security purposes when travelling especially in a large metropolitan city as New York City where thief and pick pocket are very easy. Overall, I think the base of the bag is entirely too large and very bulky as it does not lie flat or reduce flatness when in crowded places during daily travelling. I love the leather touch. The material is durable quality hard leather. I also love the shoulder strap enabling me to be hands free when walking/travelling. Having my hand bag placed securely on my shoulder all the time serves as a reminder that it is always with me at all times rather than hand carry as I may forget where it is located.
Sent this to my sister as a present she uses it everyday!
Itâ€™s beautiful mauve rose color and spacious for a medium sized bag. The strap is sturdy and secure. I am 5â€™7 and bag falls below hip. Wouldnâ€™t use as crossbody because of bag size but to each his own.
I love this handbag! It is spacious without being too big. The color is beautiful. Dark plum perfect for fall.You just need to know it doesnâ€™t come with a dust bag, which is very unusual. I gave it 4 stars because of this.
I ordered the floral purse. Oh my gosh, it is truly beautiful! It’s not over-sized. I think with such a bold pattern, it shouldn’t be too large. I cannot wait to carry this in the spring. The colors are so rich and vibrant. Of course the purse is of great quality also. I LOVE this purse! I had it in my cart for so long but kept hesitating because of the price. BUT, I don’t always spend that much on purses so I figured I would splurge on this one. So glad I did!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
