I own and LOVE this bag. I carry it a lot became it holds the necessities without being bulky. I even slide my kindle or paperwhite in the middle with no problems...It's so light and organized . Mine is black but I'm contemplating getting the gold for summer. Mine is over three years old and looks brand new.

@birkin baby- thanks for the recommendation. I just officially started Christmas shopping. Earlier than I wanted to by far, but just bought 4 Christmas gifts. Oh, and one for me. 

 

Good price, free shipping and I placed the order through Discover card deals so I’ll be getting 5% cash back on the total. 


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Good brand. Lasts forever. Good colors.

The Cara bag, is called the Keefe in stores and on the Kipling site.  Macys used to carry it.  It holds quite a bit and is a really nice bag.  Kipling renames a lot of their bags after they've been out a while, so if you like a bag on QVC, look around and you may see it with a different name.   I love Kipling bags but the vendor here drives me nuts constantly caressing these bags.  Geez, give it a rest, they're not living things!

They're decent bags, well made, practical and light weight. To me, cute but sometimes a bit bland and not all that stylish, even for nylon. Still, there's definitely a place for a few in the handbag wardrobe... I'd look elsewhere, were I interested. They can be found for less than what QVC charges, as can most bags. There are possibly also more color choices when ordering directly from Kipling.

@Tyak- thanks for posting this.  I have some Kipling bags, but I'm still fairly new to them and didn't know about the renaming.

 

I just did some searching on the Keefe- ebay and Kipling's site.  I'm pleased with the deal I got on QVC.  It was good enough.  Ebay's prices were higher mostly.  I got $49.96 here and free shipping.  And I went through Discover card's site so I'll be getting 5% cash back for that.  And QVC had the color I wanted and Kipling didn't.

 

So, assuming all arrive as ordered, I'm pleased with my order.  But the information you gave about the style name changes is greatly appreciated.

I bought the Kipling TSV from March 2018, IIRC, and I like it a lot.  No, it isn't the most stylish bag ever, but it us a crossboday with lot of compartments, buth snap close & zip close, and it is LIGHT WEIGHT.  Am also loving the rose gold color (which I seem to love in clothing & accessories, but never liked in jewelry).  I walk a lot and really needed a crossbody and couldn't not walk around all summer with a heavy Dooney.  I'll probably buy a black Kipling for the winter.

My order of 5, count em 5, bags arrived a few minutes ago. This is a great bag. One is for me (one of the prints). 3 in the bran color are for Christmas gifts and I’m not sure about the 5th one yet. The ones for gifts are all in the bran color. Not a color I’d normally gravitate to, but it’s really pretty in person and the gift recipients will like that color. 

 

Thrilled with the purchase. This bag is a winner.

This bag, only called Keefe on the kipling website, is on sale during a flash sale for a real good price.   There are 8 colors.  5/24.

@Tyak- just took a look. GREAT price on that. It’s such a great bag. I just took a look at my Christmas list to see if I needed to order another one,  but I’m good with the ones I’ve already bought from QVC.
