Rated 2 out of 5Â by HayliB Disappointed
Perhaps my expectations were too high, but....
I was SO excited when I ordered this bag, then crushed when I actually received it.
The design just didn't wow me in person as it does in the photos. At least 5 of the (really big and noticeable) beads are already coming off!
I knew it had been mentioned in previous reviews but I just could not believe how thin the straps are! This bag is heavy without anything in it. I placed a few items in it and worried that the straps would break. The crossbody strap is a joke. Whoever designed this bag has obviously never carried a tote.
Takes a lot for me to send something back but this is definitely being returned.

I love whimsy point-blank-period. Not only is the tote loaded with aesthetics--it is also sturdy. On occasion, I have carried a huge paperback textbook, umbrella, frigoverre covered glass bowl (hea-vy), and a pair of heeled shoes--it's in the bag. When I have it loaded in this way, I use the long strap rather than the two straps. I received a compliment from my boss, who happens to be a male: "that's a nice bag," he said. The imagery that is conjured up in my mind when I see the butterflies at the bottom contrasted with all of the sequin-like shimmery doodads at the top, is that the butterflies have taken flight. The top looks like a swarm of butterflies. I love butterflies and hummingbirds, and singing in the rain--but I digress. You will never regret this purchase.

I was very disappointed on the quality of this bag. The handle is way thin and cheap looking, and very flimsy. What I paid for this...it's going back! :(
