When I first saw this in the store, I thought it was a beautiful bag and a great value for the price since it was a nice sized bag. Now that it's on sale, I am definitely going to get it! It's a great neutral color with the 2 beaded rosette accents that give it just the right amount of embelleshment without going over the top. The bag is roomy and will hold a lot of things as a handbag or you could use it as a tote! I think it has versatility. The only down side is, it does not zip, so for the most part, it is open, there is just one snap, but many bags are made that way these days, even the expensive designer bags. The straps are braided, sturdy and long enough to fit over winter coats, so, for me, it's a good purchase.
