I got the larger tote in chestnut for Christmas and I absolutely love it. I wanted a smaller day-to-day bag and this fits the bill. It's a beautiful color (teal blue), perfect for summer, it's roomy, very well-made, great interior pockets but most of all it's very stylish. I love the zipper detail and the fringe is so minimal it's not obnoxious. It's not difficult to carry either like many handles/straps on other handbags. It's very comfortable. This is my new favorite.
