      I have this bag in two colors and I always get compliments every time I wear one of them. The color combinations are striking, the leather is good quality and it is well-made. It is a great size for work or for going out shopping and running errands. It would probably also work well as a gym bag, but I haven't tried that yet. I love this bag so much I would give it 10 stars if I could! I wish I could have it in every color!

        This is my second review for this bag as I have been able to use it each day this past week. I purchased it for work, to be able to carry my laptop and stacks of essays to grade,a few snacks, my smaller clutch, a pencil case, etc., and it has room for all of those things. I was discussing this with a friend who ordered the tote as well, and we agree that it is every bit as good as bags that are three times the price. I may order another for a Christmas gift to myself.

        I ordered the red and pink tote 6 months ago for spring. It is the perfect size, holds it shape so it's not too hard to find things that have settled to the bottom and is very attractive. I got many compliments on the bag. So when the brown tote went on sale, I snapped it up for fall and winter. The only downside is that you have to hook the extra strap onto the same loops as the handle. It would have been better if there were loops on the end of the tote.

          So my in-laws came to stay with us for a week....after their LONG visit I felt the need for a little revenge shopping! I purchased this tote in red, and like my collection of other Boden handbags, this did not disappoint. What a stunningly gorgeous, beautifully crafted tote bag. It fits all I need for work, laptop, various papers, a book, a smaller clutch handbag, water bottle. It is simply perfect.

                I wanted to love this bag, but the leather was too soft and mushy and the bag didn't feel structured enough to keep. It also was too big for what I needed. Sadly, it went back.

                  I needed a new bigger bag for work that would fit lunch, my MacBook Air, and other odds and ends to get me through the work day. I've been waiting for the perfect bag for this for a long time, and when I saw this one I jumped on it. I LOVE how it's a classic shape with the interesting/contrasting colors and tassel - so it has a classic, yet current/young style. It's professional enough that I'll bring it with me when I do customer visits for work, and it's also a great size for a carry-on when traveling on business trips.

                  I'm on the shorter side (5'1) and the bag fits comfortably under my arm with the shorter handles.

                  It's just the right size - not so big that you look like you're carrying your life around, yet big enough for all the work necessities.

                  All around a GREAT bag.

                    I love this bag, the quality is great. The design is so cute, I adore the contrast lining and the two-tone trim. I bought the Green/Navy one for myself and the Pink/Red one for a friend. I love the fact that it zips right across the top so that all your things are safe, great for travel. Also all the little pockets are very handy for things you need to access quickly. Gorgeous, gorgeous bag. I may have to purchase the zebra print! :-)

                    I've been looking for a bag that I could use for work that was professional and timeless without being too boring or too wacky. I wanted a simple / classic shape that would hold work files and would also offer the opportunity to be carried cross body on my scooter.

                    This bag appeared to be the perfect - the contrasting colors and fun tassle hit the mark on professional but not boring, and the size was perfect. But the handles are too short to fit over my shoulders while wearing a jacket and the cross body strap appears to only fasten onto the handles themselves, not to the endpoints of the bag where I would expect (which I now see clearly in the photos), so it's hard to open the bag when wore cross body.

                    I would have paid the (sale) price for this bag gladly but not with these two dealbreaker issues...

                      I have been looking for a fall bag and when this one went on sale I decided to go for it. I love it. I bought the zebra print ... it's fabulous with the yellow trim. It was bigger than I imagined and so I plan on combining my purse and work tote into one. It's very well made.

                        This bag (I purchased it in the navy) is simply LOVELY! I have yet to take it to work and run it through the packed-to-the-gills test, but it is just so well made, out of beautiful materials, I can't foresee any problems. The extra strap is adjustable and provides extra flexibility. I don't have an issue with the connecting points for this strap (as other reviewers have noted)... from a quick test, it actually helps the bag sit more closely against the body. Oh, and the bag comes with its own, brightly spotted storage bag!
