I bought first one of these bags, about a year ago. I have used it every day since and just waited for Maria to get more of them. I have bought several more and given one to my daughter. I love these bags and I often get comments when I wear it. People think they are very nice and wish to buy them as well. They are beautiful, but also very long lasting. The first one I bought still looks new. So if you like the style they are a perfect choice.
