I ordered the pewter color for year round versatility. This is an exquisite bag well worth the exquisite price! Beautiful design, leather, and workmanship. Adjustable strap to wear either crossbody or shoulder. Deep outside pocket, top sip and inside pockets.

This is a great tailored bag with just enough bling to make it interesting! And though it's a smallish size compared to some messengers, everything I normally carry fits great â€” and I don't feel overwhelmed by my bag's size when I carry it. I ordered the ginger color and was a little disappointed that the actual color is not as golden as its photo â€” more like palomino. But the upside is that it goes with more of my summer wear. Thanks, Brighton!

Perfect size, if I discipline myself not to carry a totebag's worth of stuff. The pewter finish has a bit of metallic sheen and has held up very well over months of daily use. I get lots of compliments on it.

Perfect size..not too small; you can still fit all your necessities in this messenger. I got it in the Ginger...a great neutral for summer. Got the matching Pretty Tough wallet in Ginger as well. The outside back slip pocket is a great size: fits any size smart phone.
Love this bag!

I just bought this cross over purse a week ago and think it looks really great and roomy too without being bulky.I had admired a lovely shoulder bag my friend had gotten in the same collection a while back and the leather seems to age nicely. Only negative I find is not being able to open and close it with one hand.This is my first Brighton bag and I hope it's not my last.

It is just the right size. I prefer a smaller bag and this is great. I need to fit a wallet and 2 cell phones plus basics. It has a nice magnetic pocket on the back which is great for the items I need to find right away. Dressy enough for work and fun for going out at night. Highly recommend.
Comfortable and light weight!

I bought this bag in black, as the studs contrasted well. It is thin, roomy and a very comfortable crossover. You can walk hands free and still have a roomy bag. It is just the right size for me. If it came in red, I would buy another one. Afterall, it is the Christmas season.
Just bought my bag!

I bought this bag in black. The stud print stands out more in black. It in light and comfortable on the shoulder, a swell as roomy inside. If it came in red, I would buy another one.

This is a well made bag, and just the right size for me. I would buy it in red, if it was available. It could be enhanced with a Brighton charm.
My great new bag!

I love my other Brighton bag, but I wanted a smaller bag. This is great! The only improvement I would suggest: secure the end of the zipper more so that you can open the bag with one hand. It is, as always, a beautiful bag.
Not as good as expected

I purchased this purse to have something a little smaller than my other bags. The deceiving part of the picture, is that the opening and the amount the purse can hold is misleading. When I looked at the measurements it appeared to be large enough but not to small. I purchased the matching wallet to accompany, as I love your wallets. By the time you put a cell phone and wallet inside, you are left very little room. Live & Learn

I've been saving my money for just the right bag, and I found it at Brighton. I purchased the bag in beechwood and I'm very happy with that choice. I have enough room inside for all of my things, but especially love the magnetic outside pocket.
Not a warm color

I have this in black and love it. I wanted a light color for summer ans ordered it. It is very grey in tone and not a warm color. I like the design and I am using it but very unhappy with the color.
Rex Messenger Crossbody is Pretty TOUGH!

I LOVE IT! It really takes a beating as it has to hold LOTS of keys, a huge wallet (I love from Brighton: it holds EVERYTHING, too...even all Of my medical info) & a checkbook, cellphone, A few cosmetics & a mirror & a Kleenex pack ! You can NOT do much better than that! AND IT'S B E A U T I F U L , too! I bought mine 2 weeks ago, & I've gotten so many compliments on it. I'm retired so I had to budget for it but it was worth it . THANK YOU, BRIGHTON!!!

I bought this bag in the beechwood color which is a beautiful neutral. The bag is very stylish and is the perfect size for my needs. I love the exterior pocket on the back. The quality of this bag is over the top. Very happy with my purchase. I would love to see this bag in the pewter color. I also love that it is a registered bag so I have a two year warranty and can have it cleaned.

Great crossbody! Everything fits and it stays soft and comfortable. Only thing that would make it better would be to have card slots in the slip pocket on the back for those pesky coffee cards, etc!

This is just the right size. I would like to haven it in a tan color.
Finished with a band of pewter-hued laser cut
leather following our popular Contempo design, this bucket bag is sure to garner compliments. Matching its beauty is its practicality, with crossbody ease and roomy silhouette.
If beauty of this breathtaking butterfly on this
ladylike top-handle bag doesn't captivate you, maybe its impressive artisanship will, with over 3,910 beads taking more than seven hours to hand-sew. There are 26 types of beads adorning this exquisite creature ...
Inspired by the rose windows of Europe's most
breathtaking cathedrals, this crossbody has been embossed, die-cut, stitched and laced, recreating the three-dimensional look of carved white marble. Don't miss its organizer features!
