This is my 3rd purchase from Little Black Bag.  I really love the look of the bag,  I really fell in love with it, but it stinks literally.  Really smells horrible.  I could smell the bag before I even opened the box.  In addition, it has a hang tag on it that says "Warning, the materials in the manufacturing of this product might contain chemicals known to the state of CA to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm".  So needless to say I am extremely disappointed!  I really wanted this bag so bad and traded everything in my bag for this one item, see my trade:

I traded all 5 items for this one bag!  It was still less money than I could find elsewhere online. Well anyway, my 13" MacBook Air fit in it perfectly, but the smell is a deal breaker, so back it goes.  Still trying to get over the heartbreak and on the hunt for another bag for my laptop.  Any ideas on another bag?  Anyone else have this stench problem from any other bags from Little Black Bag?  My Melie Bianco Foldover Crossbody Bag from Little Black Bag didn't have this issue.  For those that haven't heard of Little Black Bag, read my previous posting which explains how it works.  Comments appreciated, thanks for reading!  Have a PEACEful Day!  


  1. It is an issue with the Nila Anthony I have found... but the smell goes away after a little while. Cute bag!

  2. I'm sorry you are disappointed with this :( I was trying to trade for this bag as well, now I'm almost glad I wasn't successful at it.
    Fully how Elle Fowler forgot to mention these things, lol. First heard about LBB from her. Am glad I signed up though :)

  3. I got this in a different color and love it. The smell will be gone in 2 weeks. I love mine!

  4. candleashes, LOL yeah, I wrote her a note about not mentioning that warning tag that was on the bag, no response, not surprised she wouldn't comment. I bought the earrings that she was selling in a previous LBB, they are light weight and pretty, just really delicate. I've heard a lot of people say that it's the Nila Anthony line that has stink issues. Really a shame because their designs are very attractive. My Melie Bianco bag from LBB is fine. I'm just going to stay away from NA line.

  5. OMG, so its true and it's not just me. I just got my Nila Anthony green striped hobo and it STINKS! So much that I could barely start talking about the bag mid-filming of my you tube video.
    I'm so terribly disappointed also because mines worth $72 and I only go one other item with it because I traded it all thinking that the Nila bag's value makes my box worth it. Now its totally not worth it! Wow I wonder is Mystique bag have this issue because I have one in my bag that still in trading now.

  6. pearlnyc17, what's ur utube acct? Would like to see ur video! Email them for a postage paid label 2 return it! Yeah, me 2, traded everything for that bag since it was a hot sold out item.
