My favorite purse I’ve been carrying lately is one I purchased from Payless by designer Christian Siriano. If you go to his website, you’ll see most of his purses are $100+ and $200+. So I think it’s nice that he has an affordable line of shoes and handbags at Payless! I bought it back in October 2017, and I’m so in love with it! My mom liked it so much that she asked me to get her one for her birthday, so I purchased the black one for her. Keep reading to see my review and photos of my purse.

About the Purse
The name of this purse is “Jessie Dome Satchel” by Christian Siriano in the color “Cognac.” I really like this purse because it goes with every outfit since it’s a neutral color. This purse also comes in black, but I lean toward neutrals and pinks when I buy purses, so I got this color.
When I purchased it, I think I paid around $30. I had also used a coupon code. Usually the coupon codes are posted on their website, but if you sign up for their email list (which I’m signed up for), they will email you exclusive codes and sales.
As of today (Jan. 7th), this purse (both colors) is on sale for $19.99! You can purchase it here: Women’s Jessie Dome Satchel.
Update: As of March 8th, it seems this purse is sold out at the moment. Scroll down to see similar purses available.
This purse isn’t huge, but there’s enough room for my wallet, phone, keys, brush, and a makeup bag (see photo below). The website states the dimensions are “approximately 9″HX12″WX5″D.” If you’re a person who carries A LOT of stuff, you may want to look into getting one of the bigger bags on the site, such as the Women’s Jessa Dome Satchel. (Or you can purchase that bag on Amazon.)
I use the zipped pocket in the front for holding hand sanitizer and ink pens, so they don’t accidentally spill onto the other stuff in my bag.
Inside the bag is two pockets and a zipped pocket.
It also comes with a long strap that can be attached to the side if you want to wear it on your shoulder or across your body.
I’ve purchased Christian Siriano handbags before, and they always last a long time. I’ve had this one since Oct. 2017, and I also still have another one I purchased back in March 2016 (seen in this blog post).

Thanks for this review ! Very detailed and informative
What a beautiful bag! Anything cognac-colored is a classic in my book! It’s great that the size is “big enough” but not so big that everything gets lost (or so small it’s not worth carrying)! Nice!
I think it looks so cute. I actually have a few pairs of his shoes from his payless collection and they’re pretty good!
I’m actually a big fan of Christian Siriano – i love his sense of style and the high end feel he gives his designs while keeping a budget friendly price mark. I have a few of his bags and love them.
I’ve been looking everywhere for an affordable designer purse. The design of this purse is incredible, I must take a better look at the Christian Siriano line!
I I have the same handbag in black. Purchased it less than a year and one of the handles broke. I’m so mad, I cannot find this bag.
Went to goodwill with my sister and my youngest son today 10/18/2020 and walked upon the exact same purse. Grabbed it off the rack and seen that “Christian Siriano” designed it and was only $7.99, SCORED! And than I also seen that it was a half off tagged too, DOUBLE SCORED! Best $3.99 spent on a designer bag ever!!!
