Gorgeous statement tote for everday style
Received this via Unlimited and it was love at first sight. I think I kept it for 3 weeks, I was so smitten with it. Despite being made of buttery soft leather, it's incredibly light. The straps--while quite thin--don't dig into your shoulder. The metallic coating isn't too flashy to limit the use--you can carry this everyday--and the champagne finish goes with EVERYTHING. It has an interior zip roomy enough for essentials (phone, keys, lipstick) and thepocket has a small slide mini pocket in front that's perfect for a metro card. I seriously considered purchasing this bag, and my only qualms are based on being a frequently traveler & city resident. I prefer a zip-top bag for everyday so (a) I can slide it under the seat in front of me without fear of everything spilling out in flight and (b) nobody can reach in and snatch things out of it on the subway. My only negatives RE: rental (and neither are big enough to take off a star) are that the little strap closure is mainly decorative and mostly just gets in the way, and the metallic coating seems like it might become worn in spots with extended use. But this bag is gorgeous. Truly in love.
