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.

I LOVE this bag!
I bought this tote right before a trip to Florida. I jammed it full of stuff and it held up great. I use it for my everyday purse now. I find it very sturdy and I get compliments on it all the time. I've been very happy with it. Some reviews said the straps were too thin. Maybe if they were a little wider that would be nice, but it really doesn't bother me and the straps don't cut into my shoulder.

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.
