Really like the look & colour - needs improving,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kipling Women's Orelie Top-Handle Bag (Shoes)
I bought this bag to replace the Fairfax L that I have. I wanted a bag without all the outside pockets, but like the Fairfax L, with extra compartments either side of the main zip compartment, which this bag has. I really like the clean lines, no side pockets or flap at the front and I love the colour and the new spotty lining. It's a little smaller than I would have liked (slightly smaller than the Farifax L). My main complaint is that there seems to be excess lining, it is very baggy inside which means that when you open the bag, say to put your purse back in, you have to fight for a space as the part of the lining with the pen slots and drop pockets basically sits in the middle of the bag because there is too much lining. I have compared this to the Fairfax L of which the lining is more fitted to the bag. It's such a shame as I really wanted to like this bag. I am trying to overcome this problem by stitching the corners of the lining into the seams which has pulled the lining into place and this seems to have opened up the main compartment a bit more. I've always been really please with all my Kipling purchases but sadly this one has let me down a little.
