Â by eagle017 Love at first sight
I was in the market for a travel bag that capable of carrying all of my stuff for 1 weekend AND carry-on compliant. When I saw this one in-store, it was love at first sight. *BTW, the bag is BEAUTIFUL in person! Online does not do it justice!* The bag is generously sized; not huge, but definitely roomy enough for one weekend. I needed clothes to wear to a rehearsal dinner, a wedding, plus 3-4 extra outfits and this fit the bill. It even fit my bulky sweater (see "Emile Cardigan" also by Anthro), 3 pairs of shoes (boots, heels, flats), my full size hair dryer & flat iron, travel-sized toiletries, it held it all. I took another reviewer's advice and sprayed it with Scotchguard before traveling, which I do recommend. The bag's material is canvas, so it is likely to absorb materials & dyes it comes into contact with when rubbed against repeatedly. My only wish is that the crossbody strap had a leather shoulder cushion attached to it. This would have made it slightly more comfortable carrying through the airport. Overall, lovely bag. I looked forward to traveling with it and it did not disappoint.

I originally bought this bag as a second choice to another weekender bag elsewhere. When my original choice was in stock I found myself with 2 bags assuming I would return this one but the quality was so much better, there were more zippers and compartments but not too many, and the bag was the right size. I returned the other one because it was huge and this one is the perfect size for a carry-on. It's bigger than I expected and taller than I realized- reminds me of a Mary Poppins carry-all. Overall, my favorite feature are the flowers that are partially embroidered which gives the bag a rich look and feel. I'm not totally surprised I kept this after all because Anthropologie always has superb quality items!

I bought this as a gift for my nanny. When it arrived it was even more beautiful than in the photo. The large flowers are slightly textured and the bag is really huge! There is a large outer pocket on the other side of the bag with a magnetic snap enclosure that spans the width of the bag plus more inside (at least one zipped). My preference would be to have the inside a bright color to make it easier to find things, but the navy interior works well anyway. It was bitter-sweet giving this darling away.
