First impressions - this purse was much bigger than I was expecting (my fault for not reading the dimensions), but it's BEAUTIFUL! It's sturdy, it's sparkly, it's classy. Several people have gushed over it, wanting to know where I got it, threatening to steal it from me when I'm not looking. It's a huge hit! It's now my favourite bag! (Posted on 4/4/2016)
I love the Amoeba!Review by Freya

I love the Amoeba bag, and already own it in the red and fuchsia colors, and have been pleased with their size and functionality, not to mention the way they get attention every time I carry them. So I was beside myself when my boyfriend purchased another in turquoise for me on my birthday! But when it arrived, there were many things that made me go, "Hmmmmmm"......

For one, I have a very difficult time fastening this bag. I have never experienced this degree of difficulty with my other Amoebas. I really have to work at securing this clasp, whereas the others close easily, as long as the chain and other obstructions are clear of the opening. Secondly, this bag is noticeably smaller than my other Amoebas. This may have been due to improper packaging; it was crammed in a way-too-small box for shipping, and I had a hard time removing it; My others were delivered in larger boxes and arrived in good condition. The bag should rest on the four chrome feet on the bottom of the bag, but mine rests on the four corners of the bag, itself, which could cause undue wear on the bag. I really think this is due to the bag being crumpled during shipping, or perhaps it was stored improperly at the warehouse.
Lastly, and this isn't really an issue for me, but you might want to know that this bag is much more "blue" than pictured. It appears to be turquoise in the photo, but it is darker and more teal in person. This is the kind of bag you build an outfit around, though, so if you are looking to match something you already own, you might be disappointed.

I am going to have to exchange my lovely bag for another that functions correctly, unfortunately. I cannot justify keeping it with the aforementioned flaws for the price paid. (Posted on 1/27/2016)

Whenever I carry this purse, I am sure to get plenty of compliments. Men, women, children, it does not matter. I LOVE that. The purse is sturdy and so unique and I like to carry it when I am wearing orange and coral in particular. I am always asked where I got it. It's great to say, "Pin Up Girl in Burbank. They also have a website." Now I just need a Sugar Daddy to buy me some more PUG swag! (Posted on 10/31/2015)

I've had this bag for several weeks now and I LOVE it! I got it in the blue with white piping. In the picture it looks like the leather part of the strap is all white but on mine, it's blue on one side, white on the other which looks great. I was worried about the size as I usually carry large bags but this one isn't too bad on size. You can't carry your tablet in it but everything else seems to fit. And the look is just scrumptious! My boyfriend loves it and even told me I should buy another one to have on hand just in case this one wears out!!! He's never said anything like that about a purse before...lol. As a matter of fact, I can't tell you how many MEN I've had stop and compliment my bag. Of course, the women love it too. One elderly lady stopped me in the grocery store and asked me where I got it. She said she remembered having something similiar in the 50s and that it brought back memories for her. I had concerns about the latch but it seems to be holding well and I've had no problems with the purse falling open. I carry it everyday and everywhere and the quality so far seems great. I would highly recommend this bag, especially if you want to be noticed! (Posted on 2/23/2015)
High Quality, but BIGReview by Charity

I love the look of this bag, and so does everyone who sees me with it. (I have given out more PUG cards after people see the handbags than from the dresses... LOL.) It is very well constructed, sturdy, gorgeous, and BIG. I measured out the given dimensions before I ordered, but I sort of got it into my head that it would be a little smaller than it is; about 75% of the size would have been better for me, personally, but you really can carry everything you need in this purse... and then some. My only other complaint is that the clasp is a little hard to get the hang of; sometimes it doesn't want to latch, either because the chain slips in there or because the lip of the clasp doesn't want to go over the pin. In any case, I recommend this bag for an eye-catching accessory to any outfit. (Posted on 8/8/2014)

You will get compliments on this purse everywhere you take it. I even had a four year old boy at a restaurant tell me that he liked it! I had another gentleman tell me that it reminded him of a Corvette. Super fun and lots of room. The clasp also holds really well considering the multitude of items I keep in there.

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and it was perfect. I danced the night away in it and didn't feel uncomfortable in it at any point and I also got tonnes of compliments on it. I wore it with the blue amoeba purse and it was a great pairing, I would definitely recommend purchasing this dress. You also can't beat placing an order and receiving it in less than 24 hours (and I live in Canada)! (Posted on 8/7/2014)
