Rated 5 out of 5 by Winechick123 from Love my Frye Melissa Tote! I've been searching over a year for a new bag to replace a leather crossover purse that caused pain in my shoulders and back. I purchased this one two weeks ago. I was skeptical because the Melissa Tote is larger than my crossover and about the same weight. However, I have been pleasantly surprised that this bag is extremely comfortable to carry. I can carry more items than before and there is no pain. It is well constructed and the color goes beautifully with just about everything! The straps stay on my shoulders, although sometimes slip off when wearing a bulky coat. I am small-framed at 5' 3" and this bags works for me!

Rated 3 out of 5 by britmar12 from Cognac bag not even close to picture I love the size, weight, and feel of this bag. The leather is very high quality. I love that it stands on its own without collapsing onto itself when set down. However, I got the cognac because I'm in love with the distressed look that is pictured. The bag I received looks NOTHING like the picture. I still like the bag, but it's nothing like I was expecting. In the picture, there are lighter and darker areas of leather. The bag I got is all uniformly the same shade of dark brown leather. You would barely call it distressed, while the bag in the picture clearly has that look to it. I would LOVE the bag if it was more like the picture. That's the bag I wanted. I'm so disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rcbecky from The Melissa Tote Almost perfect I recently purchased this handbag and is my first Frye purse. I love pockets and dividers. Also love your use of destressed leather. However it's still lacks what bags in this price range want. First as women we get tired of digging for stuff. Put a small slit or zippered pocket on the outside for cellphone and keys. And last to preserve the leather and the amount of money we spent the purse should have feet so the bottom doesn't get all scratched. Add those things and I think it's a perfect purse and worth the money. If you really want your brand to be tops then make it for women meaning and outside pocket and dividers inside. We really hate digging for stuff. I look forward to future designs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shar from Beautiful, feels great, smells wonderful! I bought the wine color from the Boston store. It is incredible! Love everything about it. The grain is gorgeous, some variation. It feels like butter and smells yummy. The texture of the wine is like a suede material on the handles so the straps grab your shoulder so it doesn't slip off. Just to throw a negative in so you know this is real it does scratch very easily but in my opinion it just adds more character to it. Makes it truly unique. Awesome size you can fit everything with lots of room to spare. Plus because it's big you can find everything very easily. Molds to your body when carrying it so you don't even notice it's there. Distributes weight. Best to see them in person. Go to a store if you can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by conservativemom from Goregeous! I have no problem investing in my handbag. After all, I use it every single day of my life. That being said, it's almost impossible to find a good bag that would have any organization to it. Most bags are "dump" bags with all contents inside one compartment to be searched for when needed. The Melissa tote delivers style and functionality with three divided compartments, two side pockets, and a zipper compartment on the side. Attractive and soft, I love the irregularities in the leather giving it that rustic look. One negative... I desperately wish this bag had the option of a wide strap handle. This would allow a shoulder bag option when I need my hands free or on big shopping trips when I am simply tired of carrying my bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cindyd from First Class & Quality This bag is more than I hoped it would be. The leather is unlike anything I ever had. It is very roomy, love the center divider. When you pick it up, you know you're carrying a statement piece. The craftsmanship is excellent and well worth every penny. The only problem is that I love it so much I'm not sure I'll ever buy another bag again! This one is a keeper. Don't mess around with the other designer bags out there - I've had them all and the Frye bag cannot compare. It is superior in ever facet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nukediva from Great style and color!! I bought this bag 3 months ago. I wasn't disappointed. I have used this everyday for work and over all general use. I have packed it full and have barely had anything in it. It holds up well. Three is only one complaint that i have. Its the straps / handles. They are shaped in thestyle of a rope with a side seam. After a while, they do hurt. I believe this bag would be a full 5 stars of the straps were made with a flat design. Then they would be more comfortable and will stay up on your shoulder. Otherwise, it is still my everyday bag!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aunt E from Beautiful Tote with rich color & quality leather I live in the mountains and wanted a refined bag with a rugged feel. This leather is gorgeous, it has character and a deep wine color. It is a wonderful alternative to black or brown, and goes with everything. It is not too heavy when empty, which can be a problem for bags this size. The interior is very roomy, and the center divider has a zippered compartment that is padded. There are two interior pockets that fit a phone perfectly. There is a small zippered pocket on the other interior side. The handles are also padded and fit easily over my shoulder. I only wish it had an outside pocket, then it would be perfect.
