I love my new purse. The handles are large enough that it can still go over my shoulder, however, the handles must be vinyl because after using it for about three weeks, they are starting to show some cracking. It is black in color, therefore, the cracks are harder to see, unless you purchase one that is a lighter color. Overall, I think it's a fabulous purse for the money. My girlfriends commented how much they like the purse also. I just might order more as Christmas gifts for a few good friends!
