The perfect size purse. Really roomy with lots of convenient pockets in the interior and exterior of the bag. Craftsmanship is superb!!

Absolutely one of my favorites. Very roomy. Very classy.
Lovely; great quality
By Barbara from Edgewater , NJ
On January 7, 2015:
Bag is of superior quality. The leather is like butter. And it's so pretty. Wish I could have kept it, but it was too small for my needs. Plus, I had difficulty keeping the magnetic closing closed and I don't like to carry bags wide open. If these aren't concerns for you, go for this bag.
Beautiful quality handbag
By Monica from Castaic, CA
On January 5, 2015:
I love this style of handbag so much that I bought 2 of them! I have a black one for winter and a light colored one for summer. It's just big enough without being too big. It has the right amount of pockets for me, some secured with zippers to ensure privacy and some open for easy access. It is roomy but also organized. Great quality construction, beautiful leather and embellishments, and superb Brighton customer service! Wish I could afford another color!
Love my bag!

I spent a lot of time agonizing over this bag-- should I get this, would it be too big, did I want a Coach instead, etc.? But I finally decided to go-for-it and couldn't be happier with my decision. I have it in the pewter color. Initially, I thought it was too large, but honestly, it's so nice having a roomy purse. It's so well-made. Beautiful inside and out. I have been carrying it for almost a year now and it looks as perfect as when I first got it. And I carry it every day! I have to say, when I first starting carrying it I thought I'd get a lot of compliments. Actually, the only compliment I rec'd was from a young man when I walked into a retail store. Weird!
Love this Bag!!!!

I absolutely love this bag!!! I am not one who likes to review things, but always rely on reviews when looking to purchase, so I felt I owed it to all of you out there to tell you how much I love the bag. The size is perfect for me and I love the pockets on the side. I use them to keep my keys and phone handy. I also like the openness, I can grab things quickly, like my iPad, that I often throw in there. I just keep my wallet zipped in the middle pocket and its perfect!!! I do love Brighton, however I find the metal details do discolor, especially, when stored, and I hate that (wish they would work on that!). I have had this bag awhile though, and use it everyday, and haven't had a problem. Oh, and I forgot to mention how many compliments I've gotten on this bag!!! I would love to see more colors, as I love this bag so much, I am looking to purchase another color. I have the metallic purple color and would love to have this in the sapphire or similar. Please Brighton bring back some more fabulous colors in this fabulous bag!!!!
Outstanding products and service!

I have had my black Andie bag for about three and a half years and have been so happy with my purchase. This was my first ever handbag purchase with Brighton, I now have about ten. I recently sent it in for a free cleaning and just received it back today (two weeks sooner than the girls at my local store said it would take). It came stuffed so it would keep its shape, wrapped nicely in tissue paper, and gently placed in a new dust bag all in a new box. Oh yeah, it had a price tag attached as well. I had to really inspect it to make sure it wasn't a brand new bag...I don't think it is! The leather is so soft and yet the bag holds its shape so nicely. The quality, style and care that goes into Brighton's products is so special. Their customer service is amazing! I will not hesitate to continue to give this company my business!! Thank you Brighton for your excellent products and service!!
Love the color and the details!

Really glad I went for a more unique color (had been deciding between the beige and the silver, but made the leap to spruce). Love Brighton products style and quality! The sales people are fantastic too!

This is by far the my most favorite Brighton hand bag I have ever had! I have it in the pewter color and have owned it now for almost 3 years and it shows no wear. The inside is great to keep stuff organized. The magnetic closure is great unless you plan on stuffing it too full or too heavy. It's very classy and I get many compliments.

I've had this in brown for a couple of years - and I am not a biker - the organization is great. I would really like the same style with the same great leather but minus the studs.
By Mjs from Plano, TX
On November 13, 2013:
Very pretty purse. Love the neutral pewter color and the soft leather. My first big purse purchase at Brighton. Always buy their jewelry but the purse will not stay closed the magnet is not strong enough and you can barely fill it to get it to close. I bought the small matching wallet and even with just it in there it will not close. Also the straps will not stay up on your shoulder so be prepared to hold it by the straps the whole time. Disappointed but I guess I will keep it. Surprised more reviews don't state these problems. A lot of $$$ for such quality. Will stay with better name brand purses from now on.
By Seanine from Los Angeles , CA
On November 11, 2013:
The magnets stick to _everything_. I mean everything. Art installations, bathroom walls, my car! I have claw marks on the side of my car from this bag. I have a three year old, I can't always pay attention to how close I am to painted metal. :-(
By Karen from Thomaston, GA
On October 19, 2013:
I love this bag. The leather is so soft. I wish Brighton would make more bags in this color. I was so happy with this bag, I ordered the matching wallet.
Will not stay closed
By Evelyn from San Carlos, CA

The magnet on the top of the purse will not stay closed... otherwise I would love the bag
First brighton diappointment
By Lynnelaine from Madera, CA
On September 18, 2013:
The feel of the handbag is great, but that's where it stops. The magnetic closure does not work at all and exposes all the contents. It's a dream for pick pockets. Brighton handbags are only available to me on the internet, so I'm not sure I'll take the chance of ordering again.
Love this bag!!
By Patricia Broxon from New Braunfels, TX

Everything about this bag is quality. The lining is beautiful with plenty of pockets for organizing. The pewter color is stunning and the leather is not too thin so it holds it's shape well.
By Cheryl from Metro Phoenix, AZ
On August 12, 2013:
Love, love, love this bag! The suppleness of the leather was what first attracted me. Like my other Brighton bags, it has plenty of compartments to keep all my "stuff" well-organized without feeling too heavy. I got the pewter and it is just amazing!!!
Fabulous - Just Fabulous
By Darlene from Wellington, FL
On May 9, 2013:
Better than expected! Wows everyone who see's it! The color matches everything and then some!! Would love to have this bag in every color if I could!!!! Can you tell that this is a favorite of mine??? :-)
Another Brighton winner!

This isn't my first Brighton purse by far and certainly won't be my last. I bought the Andie purse in Black and like it so much I think I'll get the Beechwood for summer use. Size is good, fits everything I need and I just Love the detailing. From the grommets to the swirl accents at the bottom of the straps I'm in love. Goes well with all my Harley leather goods giving me a biker chic look. Very versatile.
Love this Handbag
By Julie from Largo, FL
On April 19, 2013:
I have several Brighton handbags and have loved all of them but this (snake skin) bag is more. I feel special when I carry it. I love the side pockets with the magnetic closure. I recieved birthday money and will be purchasing the wallet tomorrow. I'm just as excited about it. I do have to say, I looked at other designer bags but I came back to Brighton. The quality and guarantee is excellent!
By Linda from Toms River, NJ
On April 4, 2013:
Beautiful. The leather sparkles in the sun and it's as almost it changed color. I ordered this bag in the purple/eggplant color. I have gotten so many comments on the bag. Brighton Bags are like none out in the market place. First of all, the craftsmanship is outstanding, and designs are wonderful. Don't overstuff as you wont be able to catch the magnetic catch.
Just love my new Brighton handbag.......
By Cathy from Mancelona, MI
On March 12, 2013:
This handbag is just beautiful....The leather is very soft....and I love the divider in the middle, helps me keep my wallet separate from everything else I put in my purse.... I have always loved my Brighton handbags, but I really like all the side pockets and the look of this one,,....very pleased with my choice! I love Brighton.......
Beautiful, Roomy & Soft
By Kathi from Woodstock, GA
On February 28, 2013:
As soon as I entered my favorite store that carries Brighton handbags, I saw this bag across the store in the Beechwood color. I immediately loved it. The color is so scrumptous and soft. The bag is so roomy. I even bought the matching wallet. I own many many Brighton handbags and this is one of my favorites!
Thank you Brighton!
My first Brighton bag

Love the inside organization. The size is perfect for carrying everything you need with a bulky bag. It goes with any outfit as well!
Wishing it had smaller handles
By Darlene from West Palm Beach, FL

#WinOurHearts I purchased this bag in pewter just over two years ago and absolutely love it (still)! The pewter goes with everything and the grommet styling is very attractive. The bag still looks new after two years. Would love to purchase another one in a fun, summer color.
I love this look.

Saw this purse in the store in red and love the style -not too much bling, but still very stylish! I ordered it online in the taupe color. The size is perfect for my use and I love the Brighton purses with the middle, ziptop divider.
Just what I wanted
By Kim from Monroeville, PA
On January 28, 2013:
What a great surprise. I ordered this purse last week and received it today. It was just what I wanted. It's the perfect size, very classy looking, soft leather, it's just lovely . I have been wanting to purchase my first Brighton purse but wanted to make sure I order the right one for me and I did! It's beautiful. I love Brighton :)
My first Brighton bag is a Winner!
By Tammy from Chanute, KS
On January 18, 2013:
I've been looking for the perfect bag for months. I've visited many sites, read dozens of reviews and settled on this Brighton bag. I'm 5'3" so I wanted a bag that wasn't too big, was comfortable to carry/wear, was made well and, I admit it, I wanted it to be a little sexy. I am thrilled with my purchase. The leather is butter soft, the magnet closures are very strong, the packaging and shipping was such a nice surprise and the minute you open your parcel you know you've ordered something special from a special company. I'll be back!
By Anastasia from Dallas, TX
On January 3, 2013:
Gorgeous bag, I received it in the Sapphire Blue and love the color and most everything about the purse. BUT, after carrying it for just about 2 weeks, I am noticing the color coming off in certain areas like the handles where I carry it, and along the side where it's rubbed against my side. NOT HAPPY. I got the matching wallet and am noticing the same thing with it. I've had many, many Brighton bags in the past 25 years and they've all held up well. Don't have a good feeling about this one though. Maybe the leather will hold up, but if all the color wears off in key areas, it'll look trashy. Boo.
Brighton, makes shopping easy for my husband
By Tommie from Harvest, AL
On December 31, 2012:
This bag is a rich soft red leather and has plenty of room. If I could change one thing it would be the length of the straps, there a little bit short. But the beautiful lining makes up for the straps...thanks. To my husband and Brighton, for this lovely bag....
By Heather from Kennesaw, GA
On December 27, 2012:
My husband bought me this bag for Christmas. I put it on my wish list after seeing it on the Brighton web site. The bag met and exceeded my expectations! It has a lot of storage pockets and I love the magnetic closures :)

My husband actually went shopping and bought me this purse for Christmas. I absolutely love it!! He did good!!! Everything fits and I can't wait to show it off.
Love the Pewter color
By Susan from Vero Beach, FL

I purchased this bag several months ago and it is great. It is actually larger than it looks. It also holds a lot of stuff with several compartments and zippered pockets. I purchased the pewter color and receive many compliments on the color.

Been searching for a "cool & classy" biker chic bag for a while and this one fit the bill perfectly! I can always count on Brighton to keep my biker chic style on the classy side.
By Vanessa from San Jose, CA
On December 11, 2012:
Had a hard time deciding between the blue or red one. Went into the store to buy the blue bag, but the red was calling my name. Plus husband and kids all liked the red bag. Ended up with red instead. Besides liking the color, the bag itself is light. The side pockets are great convenience. Very stylish! Still debating whether I should buy the blue one also.
Love, Love, LOVE my new purse!
By J9 from Johnstown, CO
On November 27, 2012:
I am always on a quest to find the "perfect" purse. This purse comes quite close! I LOVE the rich red color, it opens wide so you can easily see the contents, there three zippered compartments and two pockets inside. I love the magnetic closures on the outside and top. I hope this purse lasts a really long time because it is my new favorite! I can highly recommend it.

Greatest purse ever!
By Michele from Las Vegas, NV
On November 25, 2012:
I have never spent this much money on a handbag, but I couldn't get it out of my mind and thoughts. Several days later, I returned to Brighton and bought it in sapphire. Wish I could buy it in some other colors, as well. It is metallic, soft, beautiful, smells like fine leather, has silver studs and Brighton scroll work. I am crazy about it and all of its features!
I love it!
By Clare from Monmouth Junction, NJ
On November 22, 2012:
For some crazy reason I like blue handbags and this one did not disappoint me. I love the end pouches for my keys and cell phone. The leather is soft and has a polished sheen. This bag is a keeper!
Soft and supple leather bag
By Donna from Yorktown, VA
On November 20, 2012:
This is one of many Brighton bags I own and I got it in blue. The leather is lightweight and very supple with an upgraded lining that is softer than my earlier bags. The only change I would make is to make the main closure magnet a bit stronger as it tends to pop open if I have the bag full. Otherwise, I love the center zip section and all the different sections for organization. The outside pockets are big enough to actually get your hand inside and my phone can be placed in sideways to close the magnet. Great bag!
LOVE THE RED BAG & WALLET!
By Julie from Middletown, MD
On November 13, 2012:
When I saw this bag in red, I knew I had to have it as my first Brighton bag purchase. I love it!! Classy, well made and of course the matching wallet is a must. I've been carrying it for over a week now and have received many compliments.
Compliments are all that you will get!

Best bag ever!
By BJ from Sandy, UT
On November 6, 2012:
The color is gorgeous (I got the sapphire), the size is just right and the leather is soft. The best thing about the bag for me is the side pockets - I love to leave my cell in a side pocket, but always worry about it falling out. And it has magnetic closures on the side pockets. Yay!!
By Carolyn from West Columbia, SC

The minute I saw the sapphire Andie I knew I had to have it so I bought it and loved it, light weight, sturdy, lots of pockets, love the outer pockets with magnetic closure and as all my Brighton bags, purses, wallets very classy! Then my nail salon ruined it with chemicals so I have to buy it again and I will!
By Susan from Poway, CA
On October 14, 2012:
I bought this bag in the Blue Sapphire and it's fabulous. The leather is very soft and has a very nice metallic sheen. It's also light weight. It looks great with jeans and can be dressed up as well. I also bought the matching wallet and couldn't be happier with them both.
Loved the PLumberry

I got this bag for my birthday and I love the Plumberry color. Nice thing...Brighton sent for the coin purse ..it was Plumberry. Thank you Brighton
One annoying problem
By Tanya from Jacksonville, FL
On August 29, 2012:
I love the bag but the straps don't stay on your shoulder. Especially when your hands are full and one shoulder strap comes off your shoulder revealing the contents of your bag. It is really annoying!
Love bag and wallet ...

On vacation in belle coastal NC and found this bag and matching wallet at Island Breeze while we were waiting for the restaurant to open. Glad we were early. Loving the soft leather and simple, casual design!
Beautiful, Beautiful Handbag!
By Amy from Vestal, NY
On August 18, 2012:
I just purchased this bag today in the sapphire color. I've never owned a Brighton bag and I don't purchase handbags very often, but when I saw this one on sale in a store I was browsing through, I HAD to have it. It is one of the most beautiful bags I have ever seen! It's lightweight and stylish, with plenty of room to carry around whatever I need. The metallic sheen and silver stud details are great. I hope it lasts a long time :)
By Jan from Chicago, IL
On August 13, 2012:
I own several Brighton purses as well luggage, so I am a fan. That being said, this purse is my favorite. Each side allows for easy access of phone and keys. The main compartments are great because you don't have to "dig" and shuffle things around to find what you are looking for.
A very classy handbag
By Dianne from Conyers, GA
On August 13, 2012:
Had the pleasure of opening a gift on Christmas Day, which resulted in finding this beautiful handbag. The sapphire color is so rich, the leather sooooo soft !! Am very proud to carry it on my shoulder. Today I purchased the wallet to match and know it will be "just what any woman with good taste" would want to add sparkle in a very classy way. Have never enjoyed a handbag as much as I enjoy this one. Everything inside also keeps me organized. Its just sumptuous!!
Love This Bag!!!
By Jane from Woodstock, GA
On August 11, 2012:
THis bag has everything: light weight, good quality leather, plenty of pockets inside and out. I have the Sapphire. Love the color-- I got so many compliments in the last two weeks. And these bags last and last. Can't go wrong with this purchase. Highly recommended.

On July 28, 2012:
This is one of THE most fabulous handbags I have ever owned and I get SO many compliments on it. I love the way it fits on my shoulder, and it is very easy to find things in this bag. I have the wallet that matches it too. Thank you Brighton!
By Elly from City Of Oz, KS
On July 6, 2012:
I purchased this bag several months ago and just recently obtained the matching wallet! What a great set! I get so many compliments on both of them! The bag holds so much and is so light to carry. It stays closed but yet it's easy to open when needed! It's large enough to carry everything you need! But still not so big it over powers you! I hope to get the black color when fall starts!
Andie - Sapphire
By Val from Bradenton, FL
On June 24, 2012:
The sapphire Andie handbag is wonderful handbag. The sapphire (blue) color is yummy and vibrant. I’m very organized with this handbag. I was very sadden to have my first Andie handbag replaced. The strap fading on the first Andie and now is starting to fade on the second Andie. I believe this is due to my body chemistry is reacting with the metallic treatment of the leather. I plan to purchase the plumberry in either the Andie or Zoe handbag and hope the fading color of strap doesn’t occur with these handbags.
By Amy from Allen, TX
On June 9, 2012:
This is my first brighton bag. Love the color wish it were just a bit bigger. I have several pairs of eyeglasses I have to carry alway; and so i can't always close the magnetic top closure; but otherwise it is a classy, stylish bag that i carry daily.
My first Brighton handbag!
By Jennifer from La Vista, NE
On May 15, 2012:
I got this handbag for Mother's Day after pointing it out to my husband as the "perfect" Mother's Day gift thinking no way would he get it. To my surprise I was presented with a large Brighton gift bag from my two awesome kids. When I opened the box it came in I was completely blown away at how beautiful the handbag is, it far exceeded my expectations. I moved into it immediately and have found that everything fits perfectly, it sits on my shoulder very comfortably and I love the magnetic closures. I plan to have this handbag around for a long time to come...I LOVE it!!
Stunning bag, but...
By Debbie from Moss Point, MS
On April 24, 2012:
I bought this bag and the matching wallet. It is about my 6th Brighton handbag, and it is lovely in both style and color. But this is the second one. The first one developed spots where the blue color had completely disappeared. The one I am carrying now has started to lose some of the blue color on the edges of the shoulder straps. It seems to be rubbing off over time. I've had it since January 2012. I know Brighton will make it right, but it is disappointing to pay so much for a bag and the finish not be stronger.
By Amy from Lakewood, CA
On April 1, 2012:
I just bought this yesterday in the Pewter color (and the matching wallet) and it is gorgeous! The bag is the perfect size for me (I'm only 4'11"), it sits perfectly on my shoulder and it's super organized. I buy purses frequently, usually Coach and D&B, but this by far is my favorite! I don't see switching bags anytime soon :-) The customer service at the store (Bungalow Bay in Long Beach) was top notch! All the ladies were so friendly and patient with me and my 2 kids. It was a wonderful experience.
By Diane from Norwalk, CT

I originally bought the blue metallic to go with my blue jeans but I use it with everything! There is not a day that I go out that I don't get a compliment on it! I also bought the matching wallet, what a nice pair.
My Favorite Bag, and I own a lot...
By Carol from Madison, NJ
On February 26, 2012:
This bag is spectacular. The pewter color is so versatile. The color seems to adapt to whatever you are wearing so it always looks great. It has a center divider to help me stay better organized, allowing me to keep my personal items on one side, and stuff for the kids (wipes, crayons, etc) on the other. The mixed textures of leather lend an elegent flair to the bag, yet the studs give it a flirty, fun, casual aspect. If I had to do it all again, would I buy this bag??? Most Definately, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Also don't forget to splerge and get the matching wallet. They make an amazing duo!
Love this bag!!
By Joan from San Diego, CA

I purchased this bag for myself after much thought. I switch bags regularly, but since I started using this one, it hasn't left my shoulder! I am not a "bling" girl, but I love the blue metallic color and the size is perfect...not too big, but not too small and very organized! LOVE IT!
