Got this as a pencil case to match a similar patterned and coloured back pack. It is definitely a lot brighter and vibrant that the picture indicates. it is definitely big enough as a school pencil case. hopefully will be as durable as it is pretty.
Ladies, this is a good buy. I use this as a makeup / cosmetic pouch - and it comfortably carries 15 items : lipstick, BB cream, lip gloss, nail oil, hand cream, lip balm, a compact mirror, lip liner, eye liner, eye pencil, a couple of make up brushes, etc etc etc. It is nice and wide and also reasonably 'tall' so you can fit in even a travel sized paddle hair brush. I highly recommend it.
