Charm and Luck Shopper Tote
Pros: Large capacity, big, and bright! A definite eye catcher. Those are crystal studs lining the stitching, not metal studs. Great shoulder to armpit length in the shoulder straps. This bag can be carried two ways. One is along your forearm and it will hang as shown in the images, or it can be sort of folded gently in a way on your shoulder, making it look more boxy. The crystal studs show up either way you carry it. Unique!
Cons: Floppy and can get heavy if you fill it with too many goodies! Straps tend to fall off shoulder while carrying it. Does not stand straight up when you put it on a counter due to the nature of the soft leather.
Kate Spade "Bilbao" Quintessa
Pros: Glossy "diva" bag that definitely gets compliments! Roomy enough for large books or magazines. Perfect to carry in your hand. Durable and sturdy and just plain and simple gorgeous! The color is so deep and rich, which is coveted by most handbag lovers and collectors.
Cons: Handle is short and doesn't fit around shoulder comfortably. Gets dirty fast, and can get scratched easily.
