This bag caught my attention and I got it for fun. I do have Aquatalia boots that have shearling lining that will look good with it. One thing to note is that the size is not quite how I expected. I like the look of the bag from the front, but from the side, it's actually a little thicker than I expected. It's fine if you carry it in your hand by the handles. But if you carry it on your shoulder, the bag sticks out more than I expected. I would have preferred if it was slightly slimmer width for carrying on the shoulder, which is how I was planning on using it. On the flip side, the bag is roomier than I expected...
The other thing I didn't quite notice when I purchased it, is that the side, the back and the strap are dark brown, in contrast from the chestnut brown suede of the front. This is fine, but I didn't realize until I got it. I thought the whole bag was chestnut brown... Anyway, I tried carrying the bag with dark brown suede boots, and it looked great with dark brown boots. By the way, the strap is made of durable seatbelt type material and is fully adjustable.
This is a very cute bag that I will enjoy carrying, especially in the winter. I'm happy with my purchase.
