I asked for this purse for Christmas and I'm very pleased that I actually received it. This is definitely a travel type of bag, it has some weight but it won't pull your shoulder down. This bag retails between $68 - $78 depending on where you purchase it from. Expensive, yes I know. It is obviously a statement piece, however, I find it to be very sophisticated, well made/good quality and I enjoy carrying it around very much.
