Not enough like the picture to work for me,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Large Zipper Tote Handbag
I purchased this bag after reading so many positive reviews, so it was disappointing to have to immediately return it.
The bag is large and roomy as described, and the faux leather seemed of good quality. The red is a nice rich color.
Unfortunately the pictures make this look like more of a traditional, free-standing tote bag, which it is not - I think it is the stuffing they used to plump it up for the pictures that gave it this appearance.
The bag is actually more of a triangular shape than square, making it somewhat difficult to get items through the opening. It looks more like a vintage bowling bag than a tote.
It also can not hold up it's own weight (a key quality I was looking for) - it does have a nice flat bottom with feet, but because the material is so soft, it simply flops over when placed on the floor.
The two outer pockets are decorative, but not very useful as anything placed in them would create an odd looking bulge in the side of the bag. The metal handle screws also had oddly sharp edges, which would be a problem with a small child.
Didn't work for my needs, but seemed to be a quality bag.
