Large Straw Tote
This bag has a great size and shape to it-- not too big or small. The straps stay on my shoulders (the rolled ones tend to slip off) and they sit at a comfortable length. It's a great tote forwhen I have a long day that I know I won't be home until late. I just throw everything I need for the day inside and I'm good to go. The only thing that is frustrating is that if it's not full the top tends to flop over. In the scheme of things, a VERY minor detail.

Stylish Beach Tote, Questionable Construction
I bought this bag to use to go to the pool/beach and have had it about a month. The size is great it holds a towel, a book, my wallet, keys, sunscreen, and a bottle of water with room to spare. The little pouch on the inside is great for lipgloss or anything small you don't want to hunt for on the bottom of the bag; my phone fits great there too. The tote does not stand up on its own but thats only an issue when its not being carried.
The one big issue I've had is that when I came home today from the pool I noticed that one of the straps' stitching is coming undone. If one part of the thread that holds the strap to the bag comes undone, the whole thing falls off! I'm not carrying a lot of weight in the bag so I don't feel this should have happened. I'm going to stop by my local Vera store and see if they will replace it, if not I guess I'll sew it myself since I really love my bag.

Beautiful! but stitching... Ehh
I got my straw tote in petal paisley and absolutely loved it. I used it for school because it was so light weight, comfortable and could fit so much. But then after only 4 days of use, the strap broke. I know you might think it was because of so many books in it, but the books were light weight. Good thing my grandma was able to fix it.
