I purchased this in the black. It is great for toting things that I need to carry when heading out with my small kids. It works as a shoulder bag or slung over my head as a cross-over type bag. The large compartment is zippered to keep items secure. There is a small zippered compartment inside. The outside pocket has a velcro closure and there is a button loop closure that comes around the top of the bag. The button loop is a bit of a pain to use if you're in a hurry, so I usually don't use it. It's more of a decorative feature. The red accents add a bit of edginess. I like this bag a lot, it has a bit more style than your typical tote bag.

Attractive looking - but the purse is too long vertically and I've discovered long purses became heavier than purses that are wider horizontally than they are high (a bottomless pit). The weight of the items in the purse are then more evenly distributed and not such a drag on the shoulder. Also - the purse had no depth - no bottom panel - which allows for easier access and visibility of the items in such a deep purse. But, it was awfully cute and I liked the material - lightweight for summer.
Best Uses: About town trips are best
Cons: Not deep enough, Too heavy when full, Too long vertically

Weekend shopping trips so far, but will be using this daily for work to carry office shoes and snacks. I don't think it will tolerate anything too heavy. It feels very nice slung across the body and makes it easy to carry items. And the retro "hippy chic" is adorable.
Best Uses: Daily Commuter Bag, Extra shopping bag, Long Vacations, Weekend Trips
