First of all, the tote is very large and more suitable for travel. I read the dimensions, but was still surprised by its size. The bag is very well made with lots of extras. Will use this as a gift for friend that has a small business and can carry her samples in this tote.
There were no dimensions listed in the description, so I made bad assumption that this was more pure-size (since it had a matching wallet that I also ordered). This is a LARGE tote . . . beach size. or travel-size. Price was good and will use for other purpose.
This tote is enormous, really! Although the product is gorgeous, very high quality and exactly as the description says, I returned the bag because it was way too big as an overnight bag. This bag is large enough to fit several towels for a beach trip, or 4 days worth of clothes. The bag is quite gorgeous and very functional, but very large!!!
I purchased this because the price was right and I can always use another tote bag. I meet with a quilting bee and I can fit all my sewing tools and whatever I'm sewing at the time in this bag. I can't tell you how many compliments I have received on this bag.
This was part of the set of Gigi Hill luggage that I bought for my daughter. She was very pleased with it but has not had it long enough to see how well it will hold up. She liked the idea that it would be easy to find on the luggage carousel in the airport because of the paisley design.
I haven't had a chance to use it yet, my trip was cancelled. The color /pattern is nice after all. The other color options had all sold out. It is roomy, but I think it really needs a flat panel on the bottom inside. If it had that extra piece it could stand on its own with no problems. The way it is now, if you pack too much the bag will tip over
I got this in the Enchanted pattern. I love it. The pattern is what caught my eye before the tote even did. It is so pretty. I think in the Lulu pattern I'd love it too. It's big and holds plenty. It would probably work fine for a week end away or to haul crafts around with you. it's just a beautiful, bag at a great price and the pattern actually makes me happy to look at it.
There is actually nothing wrong with the tote. I'm just not a fan of the shape. As others have stated, it's quite large. I'm ok with that; however, I didn't like how the upper corners of the tote stick out. I prefer my totes to be more squared off at the top. I know it sounds like a small thing, but I just don't like the corners jutting out too far when I put it on my shoulder. Other than that, it's a quality tote, really good material, gorgeous color and good value for the price. The shape might change once it's full of items and maybe if I zipped it closer? But I will keep it because it was a great price and I like the pattern. Also, the straps are quality construction and the inside liner is of really good quality.
