Rated 1 out of 5 by Limestone Follow-up to my initial review
After having used this purse for several months, I need to downgrade my original review to one star. In addition to the pilling mentioned by others, the threads have actually pulled through in several spots. It has been relegated to a bag that I "stuff stuff" into in the closet. I would not recommend this product to others.

Great purse. The over the shoulder strap is also across the body.
I bought the yellow/green. FANTASTIC color. People complimented this purse.
BUT after carrying it for two whole weeks, Th puffy clouds and the outside fabric got to me.
The fabric is kinda weird and catches everything "cept men and money" as the old saying goes.This would really show up on a darker color.
I kept feeling I had to go over puff after puff to find something.
On the other hand, the color is beautiful. The purse size is right on, and the pockets (in and out) are really nice. Even my daughter likes it.
Should you purchase? The price is right so the decision is all up to you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keeponkeepinon Love It !!!
One of the best -- if not THE best -- shoulder bags I've ever had! Was just going to use it for travel, but now it's my go-to everyday-everywhere bag: super soft and comfortable...feather-weight...extra-roomy with a place for everything-and-then-some...speedy access to whatever I need to retrieve when I'm in a rush...large capacity but looks relatively slim and trim...incredibly well made...sturdy, smooth zipper action made even easier with generous leather pull tabs. And thus far no problem with bag attracting lint or my Beagle-Boy's ever-shedding fur.
Bought one in slate blue (a lovely muted blue steel-gray) which I'm using now, and black. Wasn't fond of the fuchsia or jade citron colors, but love the bag so much would gladly buy other colors such as hot pink, summer green, dark green, true red.
Thank you for another winner, Beanie!

Rated 4 out of 5 by grandmamarie quilted shoulder bag
This bag is really big, lightweight & would be nice for travel. It would also make a great diaper bag since it is so roomy & lightweight. I had planned to use it as a every day bag but decided to just keep it for travel & times when I need to carry a lot of stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northwesterner1 Great bag
I love this bag! It is attractive, roomy and soft, and the adjustable shoulder strap is comfy and versatile. It does tend to pick up fuzz, but taking a roller to it periodically keeps it looking good. It's the perfect size for both weekends and work days, and is well-padded for my iPad. I've tried a lot of bags, and this is my favorite.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ereader It is a cat hair and lint magnet
I like the size and the crossbody capabilities. It would be nice to have another couple pockets inside. But what really annoys me about the bag it that it now looks, after two days use, as though it is actually cat fur. We have three cats, but even so, I've never seen fabric attract so much fur. And today I came back from shopping and there was a long blonde hair on it, which no one I know has, so it is attracting human hair, too. The fabric also pills, which is evident after two days of use. I don't have plans to send it back, yet, but I would not recommend this bag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Limestone Skip the monogramming
I ordered this bag & it is as stated: The slate blue-grey is very pretty, it has a nice zippered enclosure at the top, and there is a handy key fob inside. My complaint is with the monogramming. I read about the monogramming, contacted the Chat (very helpful), who referred me to the Customer Service line (again, very helpful). We determined that the standard thread color was grey & I asked that the initials be done instead in black so they would stand out & coordinate with the straps. No problem. When the bag arrived, I noticed that the initials are not centered on the bag, as they are on most items that are monogrammed. Instead, they are awkwardly positioned off to the side. I can see that there is double stitching in the center, which may have made monogramming there impossible. If that were the case, though, that should have been explained either in the item description or in a follow up call to me, for I would have passed on it. Not only did the monogramming add to the cost of the bag, but it is also unflattering. Buy the bag. Skip the monogramming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BikeTourist Nice Bag!
I got this to use as my everyday purse. I like it because the large open compartment makes it easy to find what I'm looking for, and then just throw it back in when I'm done. The zippered outside pocket is handy for keeping coupons and papers secure and easily accessible. Only two reasons it didn't rate 5 stars: the material tends to attract and hold on to lint ( my bag is black so this is very noticeable) and the handle is quite long. This makes it great for wearing across the body, but I would like the option of shortening it to handle-length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by misswhit roomy & sturdy bag
bought this bag for the walk to work so it needed adequate strap for body cross-over and roomy interior to hold all my junk....it fit the bill!
however, like a black sweater, the fabric attracts fuzz & stray hairs but a roll-over with the lint roller took care of removing most of the stuff.
