Was ready to be disappointed as the package (Tyvek pouch) was so FLAT. However the bag is a nice weight and and simply had no stuffing like one might expect to find inside a new purse or tote. The leather seems substantial, construction is clean and neat. Everything about it looks FINE. It will look well with any style of clothing, shoe and other, smaller handbags you may carry at the same time due to its enduring, simple style. It has a good length handle and actually has a great zipper that is recessed a bit from the top edges, unusual in a double handle 'tote' size bag. It can hold a laptop but I think if it was used as such all the time it might not hold up long. It is so pretty in its simplicity that I want it to be nice for a long time! (Or you could order several LOL.) I also ordered it in the beige for my daughter but it may be a little hard to give that one away when it arrives! If it matters to you, I think it has a designer look to it, that would come with a with a much higher price point!
