I love this bag! I bought the purple one for my sister-in-law for Christmas, and once it arrived, I immediately went back to Amazon to get the red one for myself. It's seven months later, and I keep going to back to this bag. It's a very shiny patent leather, and the the handles have held up very well over time. The lining has a zippered middle compartment (which I was never a fan of), but I simply cut it out with scissors and now it's very roomy. I get compliments all the time, and intend to purchase more colors!
