Great design, good look and functions well.But issue with sequince as they tend to drop off and you leave a trail, so everyone knows your have past through.
This is a gem!
from Regina Saskatchewan
I bought this bag in Chocolate before we left on our trip to Europe in April. I toted it around Europe with me for almost 6 weeks. Everywhere I went I got so many compliments. On the way home I had so much stuff in the bag ( 25 pounds worth) and it held up beautifully. It was the perfect travelling bag. With all the abuse of stuffing it in the airplane bins and tossing it in the rental car all over Europe for 6 weeks, it still looks brand new. My family in Germany loved it and asked that I also order one for them. The quality is very good and it held up to extreme conditions. Lots of pockets for travel. Nice large size for travelling and it within the size restrictions for on board carry on. I never noticed any odor whatsoever so don't understand the other reviews. It simply had that "new smell" when it arrived. I will definitely take it as a carry on again next trip. If you want a good solid strong bag for travelling with some bling this is the bag for you!!

Pretty From Far But Far From Pretty
I got the bag today and within minutes, I had decided that it's going back home tomorrow on the next Canada Post truck!!Mine does reek! It smells like those cheap foam sandals. It is a bit of a strong odor. I could put up with that since it'll eventually go away, but I can't believe the price of this bag for the quality!!! It's like the average cheap pleather bag you can find in a flea market. The shoulder strap is so thin and just feels so cheap. Not even the pad is padded.When I first opened the box, I was happy to see there were no loose sequins inside but later on, I noticed a bald strip along a side pocket and saw evenly spaced needle holes - a sign that there were definitely sequins there at one point, and that the surrounding sequins were about to pull off too :(Not even $20 is worth it if I have to see the bag slowly going bald.What a shame. It's so nice and sparkly and many pockets too :(
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Like another person said,she did not take the smell except of plastic. Well, this is not the case with most of us. This bag actually smell very bad. I don't know what to do with it right now. I will not put anything in there. I am a bag lover and this is the first time plastic from a bag can have such horrible odour. I am even feeling bad to give it to anyone. I will just dump it in the garbage. Apart from the home suite mink bed sheet sets, this is a designer I will never purchase from again. I'm travelling and cannot even take my bag? what a shame. This should be recalled and hand back to Joan
so so chic beutefull and beutefull maid
I was speechless when I open the box so beautiful as I write above chic no bas smell sparkling love it love it hope Boyce will bring back more shoes with this style and more of her sparkling By the way aim going to buy anther one .

I received this bag in the black yesterday, I have not used it yet, but there were no sequens fallen from it . I do not understand the big thing about the bad smell , It smells a little like plastic and that is all. I think they never said it could only be used as a handbag, more for traveling or the gym etc . If the sequens fall, I will put some kind of light varnish to prevent this.

Sent it back!
from Hamilton, ON
Bought it as a 'daily bag' as that's how it was advertised. It was even too big for me!I might have kept it for weekends away if the cheap clear thread that 'held' the sequens on hadn't started to come unsewn in about 4 places. There were about 6 navy sparkles in the bag the minute I took it out. Pretty poor advertising and craftsmanship!
from Calgary, Alberta
The overwhelming comment from just about everyone that has written a review is THE SMELL!!! Oh, I would certainly have to agree on that one.Like a dummy, I kept it and sprayed it with Febreeze in the inside and put it outside for a few hours and that seemed to help it somewhat, but the smell did come back later, not as bad though. There should not be a smell PERIOD, when you buy anything like this.Then I took it away for a two day trip and sequins were trailing me everywhere I went! The Bellman even made a comment of finding sequins all over the lobby area from my bag! Not appealing at all and I am NOT impressed.I have, however, bought a couple of bracelets from her and I like them very much, but I think Joan needs to get out of the "handbag/overnight bag" industry and stick with bracelets, earrings, rings etc. Forget about the bags Joan!!!
very strong odour
I bought the bag did not actually open itto smell inside, but my god it smells horrible.my 30 days is past and can't send it back. I will put out in the cold to see whether the smell willease off. This is my first purchase from Joan but boy I almost puke.
