Frye Melissa Tote is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous bag I watched this for a month and so glad I decided to get it. It is every bit as gorgeous in person! The interior is as luxurious as the exterior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite bag! I love the quality and durability of Frye bags and have several hobos and shoulder bags. I love the exquisite leather and organization of this tote. The cognac is a beautiful color that goes with everything. This bag is the perfect size and the straps fold down nicely. The center zip compartment is an added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous bag! I was so excited to get this bag. It is exactly what I wanted. I am a petite 5 feet but the bag does not overwhelm me. It holds everything I need including my iPad. The leather is excellent quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & classy I've had my Melissa Tote for almost a year. It is beautiful and the leather ages well. I was looking for a tote that was divided-which is harder to come by than I thought it would be. This bag is perfect; plenty of compartments to keep me organized. I also find it surprisingly light given the weight of the leather plus what I put inside. It's designed well to wear comfortably and doesn't hurt my shoulder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Beautiful Tote! Top Quality. Bag is well-made, thus the price! Strong, thick handles. Beautiful color and texture. There is plenty of room in the bag with separate compartments to keep your items in some order. I wish there was a wallet to go with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look I purchased this tote when it was on sale. I absolutely love the rustic look that the leather has. Frye products are of such great quality that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this bag. Thank you, Garnet Hill, for offering this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bag EVER! I've been using this wonderful bag for a month now and love it! The quality is top notch, there's plenty of room to carry normal purse gear along with extra items (book, newspaper, iPad), and the bag pairs well with all types of outfits. Yes expensive, but totally worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality, beautiful bag I have enjoyed my Frye Melissa Tote so much that when not in use I have it setting out in my room so that I can view it all the time. Not only is it beautiful, but the craftsmanship is excellent. The size is great for carrying all of my items and it's made in the USA. It can't get much better then that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Handbag I was looking for a Frye handbag. I bought this bag based on other people's excellent reviews of the product and I am not disappointed. All my stuff fits perfectly and the center zipping pocket is great. The bag is not too big yet has all the room for everything and more. I ordered the cognac and it is beautiful. The leather started breaking in within a few days and after six weeks it is so soft . I don't like changing my bag very often so I wanted a bag that looks good with most clothes and this is it. I think it is a stylish, well crafted handbag. Typical Frye quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps everything organized! I bought this on sale last month after always thinking it was a sharp looking handbag! I bought the Slate color and I’d say it goes with everything! Fits nicely on my shoulder, and looks nice dressed up or down!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag! I absolutely love this bag. It has ample room and a center divider so that articles do not fall into that “pocketbook abyss” that so many bags have.... It has two zipper compartments that are ample. The leather is soft and wears naturally. This, by far, is my favorite bag and I am a pocketbook freak, I have many.... I highly recommend this bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rustic tote I bought this recently in Cognac and I love it. The color is a rich caramel. It does scratch very easily but the scratches seem to lighten and blend with the rustic look. I wish it were larger but it does give a bit with use. I like the internal organization - the padded center compartment has a zipper which is handy. Leather smells great. Well made. Overall, a good Frye product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Actually Been Designed By a Woman Bought this in the dark color for a fall everyday bag. It is amazingly well designed, I'm so impressed! First, it's small enough to look good over my shoulder, my elbow, or in my hand. It does not appear to be a "Mom-bag", nothing clunky about it. However, astonishingly, I can fit my laptop, my iPad, & chargers in one side, my wallet, headphones, reading glasses, paperback book, & makeup bag in the other side and keep cough drops, lady supplies, post-it notes, papers, etc in the zippered center dividing pocket, and keep my iPhone, lipsticks, pens, etc right at-hand in the perfectly-sized side pockets. And, it has a easy to use key clip on a leather leash, so everything is at-hand, when you need it. When I'm not carrying my electronics, I've used one side to hold my high heels while I walk in my flats, & then my flats pop in when I arrive. Oh, plus, the handles stay upright when you set it down--easy to grab in the car & no flopping on a dirty floor. Seriously great bag, & the perfect size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, beautiful design and quality This Frye bag is everything I hoped it would be! The leather is beautiful and quickly becomes buttery soft with use. The organization/pockets are perfect and so needed, right down to the two eye glass case pockets plus a zipped, padded center cell phone pocket. I highly recommend this even a full price but was so lucky to find it on sale. An outstanding purchase that I plan on using for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase! I LOVE this bag. I have had it for about six months or so, and it is so beautiful. It is big enough to fit my laptop, which I love. I can also fit my wallet, a water bottle, cosmetic bag...it is so roomy but somehow not bulky. LOVE it. Definitely worth the $.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Received this Frye tote a month ago, wasn't sure about it once it arrived, but now the leather has gotten softer and has that worn look. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bag Was looking for the perfect all purpose bag for a long time that combined practicality with quality and a good look. This bag fit the bill. Cell phone fits well and is easy to grab from center pocket with zipper. I love the compartments and it stands upright when you set it down (my old bag flopped around too much). High quality leather. I'm picky about size and straps and they work well.....you sling it over your shoulder. Good size bag. You can fit laptop inside if you need......

I am wondering how heavy the bag is when empty and if the straps stay on the shoulder. Are the handles "rolled?" Rolled ones tend not to stay on the shoulder. I have read all reviews, & it seems older reviews complain about these things, new ones do not.

Asked by: MariaAT
The bag weighs 3.35 pounds when empty. The handles are rolled and not flat.

Regarding color and logo: I have read the prior comments, but still a little unsure. Is the model sitting down shown with the Cognac color bag? And in the same picture: Looks like I see a "logo" or something on the front center? Is it the Frye logo?

Asked by: kaseylab
Yes, the model sitting is shown with the Cognac bag and there is an embossed Frye logo in a corner but no logo on front center.

Is this the type of bag that can’t be taken out in the rain? Will the leather get damaged? 

Asked by: SBeech
The Frye Melissa Tote is made of 100% leather. This supple leather is washed and oiled for that perfectly worn-in feel. It is not a waterproof leather.
