Works for me
I purchased this tote in a store - I like a tote that makes it easy to throw in things like a wallet, toiletry bag, eye glass case, kid wipes, mini note book - so the thin straps are well able to handle the weight. To me, the scalloped edges make the style unique, the color is extra BOLD, and the PVC makes it easy care. Win-win for me for a purse. I would think it would not be a good school or work tote (may not hold the weight.) I am going for both colors I am so enamored. Enjoy!

Gorgeous bag but the straps :(
Absolutely gorgeous bag with a pretty scalloped edging. Great size. But oh dear, the straps. I have rheumatoid arthritis and this caused my shoulders terrible distress because they cut right into the joint - I had a lightweight card holder, my sunglasses, a box of mints, a pen and small pad, my meds, and a small bottle of water ....... I couldn't stand it, it was so uncomfortable. Sad, because it looked so good.

Meh, it's okay...
I didn't love this tote after seeing it online, but loved the feel of it when I tried it in the store. The scalloped edges and the Flower Shower print did me in and I bought it! Then, I put my work supplies in it and realized that the skinny straps cut into my shoulder when the bag had any actual weight to it. Also, if I put anything in the one pocket on the inside, it constantly pulled that side of the bag down and made it look odd. Compared to my fave tote, the Vera style, it didn't measure up. Would be a cute beach tote, but since I hardly ever go to the beach, it's too expensive to buy for that purpose. It's going back.
