        I love this bag, however, it is too large for a 5'2" frame. I am returning for this reason only; the scale is wrong for small women. Purchase if you are taller!

          I paid careful attention to the purse's dimensions based on the other reviews, but was still a little surprised at how big it looked when it arrived. However, it turns out I love the size. It's tall and thin, which works well to carry a tablet. It has a magnetic closure outer pocket which is wonderful for stashing mobiles, sunglasses, and other things that I want to access quickly but keep secure. It has two open interior pockets and one zipped interior pocket, which I found has eliminated the need for a separate wallet. I love the wipe clean coating on a cotton purse. I also love that the brand name is very discreet, which is difficult to find on purses these days. The strap has come disconnected twice when I was picking it up, which concerns me a bit. Overall, I love it.

            I really don't like 'location prints', but read another reviewer that said it worked with both back and brown and took a chance. Still didn't work. Too bad. It's a well-made bag.

              This is a great bag - roomy, sturdy, well made, The Westminster print is subtle and almost abstract - I love it! The red lining adds an extra pop and is the kind of little detail I have come to expect from Boden.

                I purchased the Thurloe Bag in the check print. I feel that this bag is so classically lovely and it gets compliments frequently. It's on the larger side, but I enjoy that aspect and it's still very light despite its size. The outside of the bag has a large pocket that snaps shut where I am able to store things I need to reach in a hurry. There is also an adjustable strap that is soft and comfortable to wear. The inside is also quite roomy and contains two open pockets, one zippered pocket, and a place to hook your keys. In closing, I gave this bag 4 stars instead of 5 because I feel that it's over priced. I would have gladly payed $65 for the bag, but I felt guilty buying it at its true price tag. I recommend this bag to those who want to carry a lot in style!

                  This bag was a bit bigger that I expected (actually longer). But I think it will be the perfect fall bag for me. You can fit all of your normal purse stuff plus a book, a scarf, gloves, etc. Great city commuter bag! I got the Westminster design. I change from black to brown bags all the time and this one goes with both. It is black and brown at the same time! The design is subtle enough that it is fine for work.

                  too big, smells funny

                    When I took this bag out of the box, the first thing I noticed was the size... too big! I guess I'm bad at estimating, and there was no useful picture of a real person holding this bag, so I took a chance. This was too big for normal bag necessities; it would work for a book and lunch, too, but I wanted something smaller for everyday use.

                    Also, I understand that oilcloth is treated... but this bag did not smell great, even after it sat out for a week while I decided whether to send it back. Guess it needs to be aired before using.

                    I do love the print and inside pockets, as well as the crossbody functionality, though... alas.

                      The Thurloe Bag is the perfect size purse with an adjustable strap. The outer pocket with a magnet closure is great for quick retrieval of a cell phone. The roomy inside protected by a zipper has a key hoop and a zip pocket. The fabric has an almost oilcloth finish, though it is not shiny. I love my purse!

                        I have the Westminster rain boots from a few seasons ago and the Westminster Rainy Day Mac and now this awesome Westminster bag! I love the design. The purse is big enough to hold stuff but not too big. Thanks, Boden!

                          I make bags, but I occasionally find one I can't resist buying. This bag is a perfect size. Not too big, not too small, and I love the adjustable cross-body strap, which is soft enough to feel comfortable. I bought the London print and it doesn't disappoint. I like that its been coated to resist stains, and I also like the size of the pockets inside. All around it's a perfect bag for me.
