Rated 5 out of 5Â by PracticalinKY Great bag and a great price
This is my third Stone & Co bag. They are good quality leather bags at very reasonable prices. I also like that they have thought through pockets inside and outside the main compartment. There is space for your cell phone, glasses and additional items. The outside bags allow you to pull something out of the main compartment and have it ready for a shopping trip. I also liked this bag because it was smaller and lighter weight than many, which was important to me since I am short.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Quiltersammy what a compact purse!
I think I counted 11 pockets on the purse. Some are inside and some are outside, some have zippers and some don't. It's well thought-out and I'm looking forward to years of use.

Unlike some, I have, only one purse in my wardrobe, so it has to be a functional, secure, yet stylish workhorse. This purse, in black, fits the bill, and then some! This is why I have had two of these Sophia purses, and prior to the Sophias, I had two of the Irene purses. Also, the lining fabric and color has changed a few times over the years, but this is not a major issue with me. Unlike some, I prefer black cotton or nylon fabric, but the lining has also been done in light blue or light beige nylon.
â¢ The style is not too casual yet not too formal, with a good, neutral black color that looks great with most everything
â¢ The good-quality black leather is resistant to showing soiling, staining, and wear, and can be touched up easily with shoe dye/polish, if ever needed
â¢ Two large, main, zippered sections allow for organizing two primary purposes/categories -- one side for a wallet/checkbook and things financial, and the other side for sunglasses, cosmetics, medicines, mints, gum, tools & gadgets, spare keys, and small note/address book, etc.
â¢ Two additional, exterior, zippered pockets to securely keep things needed often easily at-hand, like keys in one, and the cell phone in the other
â¢ One of the two main sections has open interior pockets for organizing, the other section has an additional small, interior, zippered pocket
â¢ No outer flap, so the purse is easily accessible, yet the zippers keep the things in it secure and prevent things from spilling out if the purse is accidentally tossed or dropped
â¢ Adjustable shoulder strap â allows for this to be a shoulder bag which also helps to make the purse easily accessible, or a cross-body bag when needed
â¢ Metal rings where the strap is attached to the purse allow for quickly and easily clipping keys, etc. -- a very handy feature
â¢ Solid construction and decent durability for the price
â¢ Medium size is big enough to organize yet small enough not to be too heavy or bulky
â¢ Very affordable price
â¢ Durability for everyday wear would be greater with better quality zippers -- I have experienced no more than three years of use before a zipper blows out and I have to buy a replacement purse
â¢ Have found leather dye mismatches for different sections of a few of these purses -- inspect closely before purchasing in the store
Also, the front side has two very small, non-closable accent pockets, and the back has a third. These would be good for a quick stash of a gum or candy wrapper prior to finding a waste receptacle. Some may have another use for them, but like another review has stated, they are not secured by any kind of closure. Love this purse and hope it never is discontinued!
