Well I got out my Quartz Brooke this morning and put my stuff in it and took it all right back out. I am going to return it and the Eggplant Brooke. I am sad...I love the look but it just doesn't feel right.
It's an ok size. It just doesn't feel comfortable on my shoulder. It feels like it is going to slip off all of the time. And the shorter handles are really weird. I was really thinking it was going to be just like the Tribeca Shoulder Bag...but it just isn't.
I ordered one and I'll be returning it, too. For the size of the bag, the one narrow shoulder strap makes no sense. For such a large bag, you need a larger shoulder strap, or at least two. It just feels unbalanced with such a thin shoulder strap, IMHO.
I am with CoachGirlJami, if it is not right for you wait for the right one or get another of the current ones... I think you need to love all the bags you own, even at Outlet prices it is a large investment in time and money...
I'm sorry that you girls are not loving the Brooke bag. I really love mine so far and I haven't had any issues with the shoulder strap sliding. My biggest issue with it is that it feels like it needs to be a little bigger for everything that I need to carry (I have a 1 1/2 year old and use it as my diaper bag as well). I bought the medium size because the op art plum didn't come in the large, and I loved the color. Overall though, I really do love the bag and I like the large wristlet that I got to go with it as well because I can use that as a clutch if I don't feel like hauling my bag with me.
i am sorry to hear this, i just left the store tonight and i was thinking this would be my bday bag. i had the sam type of sholder issue with maggie. i was so hoping this would be different. and the colors are so cute...and the cancer donation was just an added bonus.. i guess it's back to the drawing board for me.
Oh nooo! I plan on getting this bag come PCE! All these bad reactions are worrying me. I should definitely try it with my stuff and see if it works out. I hope you disappointed ladies will find something better though. I'm sorry!
I really wanted to love the Brooke - especially since she was the bag that was replacing my coveted Zoe. I tried her on at the Coach boutique tonight and she just didn't work for me I'm so spoiled with my Zoes - I prefer the larger strap on the Zoe and the rounded corners at the bottom. Oh well!! I guess I'll just carry my Zoes for the next few years. I do love some of the Poppy totes though...and just scored the Parker Tan Satchel at Dillard's tonight for $140.00!!! It's not all about Zoe with me...but, it usually is!!!!!!!
I'm sorry she didn't work out for you, but especially at FP a bag needs to be just right. I thought the shoulder strap was a bit thin, too, for the bag size, but it still feels comfortable to me. Hopefully you'll find a new bag to love soon.
