I was initially concerned about the size after reading the other reviews but bought this bag anyway and am SO glad I did! The size is just perfect for daily use! I tend to carry a smaller bag with just my daily esentials so this bag fits me perfectly! I will list all of the contents I currently have in the bag so you can judge for yourself if this bag will work ffor you. 1 trifold wallet 1 checkbook ! pair of sunglasses w/case 3 sets of keys (car, work, home) 1 pack of cigarettes 2 lighters 1 cell phone 1 bottle of eye drops 1 chap stick 1 sample size bottle of aspirin 2 pens 1 compact 4 lipsticks 1 lip gloss 1 small make up bag with brushes, eyeshadow, mascara 1 comb 1 sample size deodorant And there's room for a yogurt or apple if I want to carry a snack to work! The leather is soft and the purse overall is quite attractive! I recommend you try it!
