I've been looking at this handbag for quite awhile so I gave it to my daughter as a gift idea for me. It's attractive and I love the pockets, however ...
First, it stinks so badly that unless I can get rid of the smell, it's strong enough that I won't be able to use it. I have COPD and the smell is honestly strong enough to where it bothers my breathing.
A person would have to be careful of the plastic buckle things that hold the strap on because I fear they will break pretty easy.
On the wide side of the compartments, the heavier flap piece that is supposed to lay in the bottom to keep it shaped won't lay because it's about an inch too wide. The purse is not as wide as it is described. Or, at least mine isn't.
I really like the looks of the purse and the pockets, but I'm puzzled by all these rave reviews unless I was unlucky enough to get the lemon of the bunch.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I use the purse every time I have to do errands. I love the extra long handle, especially when I am grocery shopping. It's nice to be able to have it around my neck, instead of the straps constantly falling off my shoulder, like the purse I used to use. The color can be used year round. I use the make-up bag for extra keys, hand wipes, etc. so they are not loose in the net pocket. The wallet holds the "rewards" cards I use.
