1. I just bought two of them, I love them but this part of the forum seems dead!
  2. Ever since it moved down to a subform, it's been on life support. I think when Monica sold the company the brand kind of started to slide - they're popping up all over the off-price retailers now. I keep seeing them in TJ Maxx.
  3. What did you get? My favorite Botkier is my Mercer Satchel.

    I got a Bella for maybe 15.00, can't remember. and this one. I don't know what the name of it is! It's black and has the chain for keys. It's pretty soft but not like Bella soft.

  5. Love it!
  6. Thanks, I think I will have it for a long time. And the Bella I really love, I couldn't believe how much stuff I could cram into it. I replaced the strap with a chain so I could use it as a crossbody.
  7. Hello! I would love to be enthusiastic about Botkier, I have two from about 8 years ago that are so luxe. Stevie in black and metallic beige leather, I love them both so much.

    But no love? I'm bummed to hear that the quality has declined in recent years ; I wouldn't know.
  8. I haven't checked them out in a while, I keep meaning too. I still want to get a Bianca.
  9. I can't say that one appeals to me. Looks heavy and I need a crossbody strap!
    I'm picky though and herd 4 kids.

  10. I think I'll like it because I love the Bella so much. The leather is out of this world.
  11. Is that a different bag than the Bianca? I couldn't find any pictures that are a different bag. They all say 'Bianca bella'.
  12. The Bella is a smaller version of Bianca.
  13. Of course! That makes sense.
  14. It's really cute but I don't think the Bianca is as cute. I also have an Angie satchel that's pretty nice, very soft.
  15. The Bianca was my favorite bag ever!
