Good school bag
I've had the attache in ellie blue for about a year and a half and I love this bag! It has held up very nicely with almost daily use and it fits everything I need for my classes, including my 15" macbook and other supplies. I should mention that I'm in college, and I switch out books and binders on a daily basis- there's no way it would fit everything I need for my classes all at once- but it works for me. The only thing I would criticize is that I don't feel secure carrying it by the top handle. When I do, the weight of the whole bag is concentrated on the front clasp, which I don't want to rip or break, so I always use the shoulder strap. It would be nice to be able to use the handle without worry, but otherwise the attache is a great bag.

Roomy Crossbody Bag
To me this is a roomy crossbody bag to use for work. It has everything I could ever want or need. I wish the closure was more like the messenger bag because after a month of use my snap closure snapped and broke. Now my bag cannot stay shut.

Great for certain jobs!
I use this to take my students' work, a book or two, and my hand-outs to my classes that I push into as a consultation teacher. It looks very upbeat and professional and I have had some nice comments on it. It certainly stands out in a nice way! I have Safari Sunset in this, and I feel brighter and lighter by carrying necessities around in it. This is my first purchase in this pattern and I find I like it very much. I also have my clipboard, a pencil case, etc. that I put in the case as well. So it will hold a nice amount. Think of it like a short haul trucker LOL. You won't be able to get the kitchen sink in here, but for what I use it for, it's perfect :)
