For a $49 dollar purse, you can see the inner stuffing of the purse handles when the handles are hanging down, which admittedly wouldn't bug most people. After only a handful of times that I've used the bag, the faux-leather on the decorative ropes that hang from the front has already started to peel near the gold beads.
The dimensions suggested that the purse would fit my laptop, but for whatever reason - maybe because of the shape of the purse, which is sort of cinched in at the top due to the decorative ropes - it doesn't fit my laptop vertically or horizontally.
Don't get me wrong, it's a nice-looking purse. The navy blue is a beautiful color, and the bag looks fashionable. I guess it just didn't quite match up with what I had imagined!
