I was looking for either a black or brown, medium sized bag. This one had a nice rounded shape, and a pretty firm structure. The handles are long enough to wear on my shoulder, or I can add the longer strap.
Stuff I do to my handbags to prolong use:
- spray it with Scotch Guard to protect the fabric (I always forget about reapplying it, after six months or so...)
- put a piece of cardboard on the bottom so it doesn't bulge out. I think they make actual purse shapers, but cardboard is free :)
- have purses for different seasons, to give them a break
The logo print is not ideal, but I feel that it is fairly muted, so it's not too annoying. I prefer clothing and accessories that keep the brand more concealed.
And this link made me laugh about who chooses satchels...
