This bag is very cute. I had it as a wedding present to go on honeymoon.
It is made of very soft 'leatherette' (without a grain) and is lined in pale blue cotton. The design goes round the front and back. The little pocket on the outside has a magnetic closure and perfect size for passport/oyster card etc it has a similar sized zip pocket inside and a phone pocket too (big enough for 2 regular size phones). It's a deceptively big bag, but definitely not bulky to carry, even full, and not too heavy either.
The bag zips with a double ended zip that goes round the top of the bag, and down the side - see the brown pits at the top of the picture(think carpet bag style), so makes it very safe to travel with.
The bag itself is really quite sturdy and a great size for a small weekend bag, shopping or perfect for hand luggage on plane journeys.
The only reason this does not get a 5 is because of the quality of the little accessories on it. The tags on mine are not embossed very well (can't read them), the aeroplane charm had snapped before opening. It did not have a little bow on either. Not a big deal as the bag is nice, but for [...]...
All in all definitely recommended for a lady wanting to travel in style!
