Better than Expected.
on February 20, 2011
Wasn't quite sure what to expect-thought this might be a big miss, but I was suprised. Ordered this bag because I loved the style. I wanted some structure (I need a rather large bag for everyday as Iam an urban commuter, and am sick of trying to dig my stuff out of a big slouchy bag.) I love a framed bag,the main compartment of this bag is easy to get to, frame opens big and wide, the hardware is nice looking,has a zip pocket and two slide pockets. The two outer pockets are nice and roomy and have magnetic closures. Plenty of room for me to keep my things organized and easy to access.
The black and white woven pattern concerned me,(I'm not a fan of stark white bags or loud patterns) but it's rather pretty and classic. This bag is structured enough to work with business attire and will also look great with jeans. Great for someone like me who wears alot of black, camel and red, etc.
It looks to be pretty well put together, and for an inexpensive bag, the rolled handles and stitching look quite sturdy. The only negtive is the bottom of the bag,although "hard" is a bit flimsy-it was folded into the bag for shipping purposes and had to be reshaped. The lining of the bag I received is also black, not grey as pictured. Overall, for the money I am pleased with with it and think it will make a cute, functional summer bag.
