    UPDATE: I ordered another exact Frye tote hoping it would be better and it was! It was packaged great and had protective pieces on the purse. It also had a lot more paper stuffing inside AND A FRYE FELT COVER BAG! This purse was brand new. The last one I received had been clearly used by the previous Amazon customer and then returned it and they decided to keep the felt bag too. So frustrating when that happens. Stealing! Anyways, I love this purse and will definitely be keeping it! LOVE! I also attached pictures of the 2nd purse. I should’ve taken pics of the first one but I wanted to box that one up fast!Original Review:I own the Melissa satchel handbag in Slate and wanted a bigger size so I ordered the melissa tote in slate. (Which btw, I love the slate color! Perfect !) I received it today and as soon as opened the box I was very disappointed. it looked as if someone carried it for a few weeks and decided to return it. The tag was in the inside so it very well could have been used and then returned! There was just a small amount of paper stuffing in the purse and there were scratches all over the outside. I understand it gets scuffed easily as I have carried a Frye purse for over a year but this didn’t look like a new Frye purse. I was also expecting the nice felt Frye cover bag but it was not there! I bought my other purse at Dillard’s so I don’t know if the felt bag is just something you get with department/Frye stores so if you are expecting that you won’t get it here! I boxed it up only after opening it a mere 5 minutes before, I’ll be returning the purse. I love the purse! Just not the used one I received…. 😒Read more

    I don’t believe this to be a genuine Frye bag. I own 3 others. They all have striped interior. This one has a solid light gray interior and the ‘leather’ feels cheap. It doesn’t compare to what I own already. Per the Frye customer service number they only use the striped interior. Nothing about this bag is as nice or quality as the Frye bags purchased from Dillard’s or Frye directly. I will return. Very disappointed and frustratedRead more

    This handbag really is the perfect size, as well as beautifully crafted. I love the color Cognac, and on this bag it looks rich and classy. It’s just the right size, not too big nor too small. Of course, the bigger the bag the more you put in it but for me this really is a happy medium. I’m above average height so it doesn’t dominate. Lots of room, and the zipped inner section/pocket is great for security. Very well made. I love it!Read more

    This bag is stunning. The wine color is gorgeous. The quality is apparent. The smell is intoxicating. I love love love this bag!On a practical note, this bag is perfect for work. I can put a full size binder and laptop in one side and all my usual purse things in the other, plus a nalgene and/or coffee thermos. My one tiny suggestion to Frye would have been to give it a tiny bit more structure, but I still love this thing to pieces and am soooo happy I splurged.Read more

    I realize that the description says the hanging metal tag in the photo is not included. However, the purse is supposed to have a small Frye emblem on one side (bottom right corner), and then the other side should say “Frye” on it (in the middle). Mine only has the emblem on the corner of one side (first photo). The other side has nothing on it (second photo). Also, it has a bad smell.. does not smell like real leather. I see marks too that make it appear to be used, even though it was wrapped in “new” packaging. Will be returning.Read more

    I love my new purse. I love it so much I want to buy more of them in case this one goes off. The leather is so pettable and soft. This feels like the dream of what a good leather purse would feel like. Not paper thin, but sturdy and soft. The color (wine) is deep and perfect, somewhere between wine and cordovan. It’s a little more brown than purple, and hits a great sweet spot in that “I can wear it with black, navy or brown” area.One of the best things about this purse is that it isn’t just an open vast bucket with two open side pockets and a zipper pocket like 90% of the purses out right now. No my friend, this thing has those AND a center divider with an additional zipper pocket. This central zipper pocket is even padded. It’s the perfect spot for my kindle and phone which nestle in, protected and easy to find. Fantastic. The drop is good, an inch more would make me even happier, but this is good.Goodness I love this purse. It’s luscious and perfect.Read more

    I have a number of Frye shoes and boots, and the quality is the best and will last a long time. I do periodically wax them. But this is my first Frye bag and I can’t say enough about it! I watched it for awhile, until there was a mark down and decided to go for it. It can hold so much, including my iPad, iPhone, wallet, glasses, makeup, and even a water bottle, and more. The compartments are nicely organized. It stays on my shoulder without sliding off. Very pleased! The slate color goes with everything. The only thing it needs are the studs on the bottom of the bag. I may have those put on as I have had that done in the past. I noticed per the other reviews, the lack of the Frye tag, which would add a nice touch. I was at Nordstroms the other day and noticed that all the Frye purses had no tags. In fact, I hardly saw any on all the other high end purse lines.Read more

    I’ve never spent more than $100 on a purse before but I wanted something of high quality that would last for years. After browsing Amazon for a couple weeks I finally decided on this bag in dark brown. I friggin love it. It’s just what I wanted, plain but beautiful. It’s a little bigger than I wanted but NOW I’m looking at other Frye styles that will fit my needs for different sizes. I want a red, cognac, and green:)! I believe am now a Frye fan for life. I’m very happy with this and I’m very glad I didn’t settle for a Coach or Michael Kors like all my friends were telling me to get.Read more
