I purchased the "pink" version and it's beautiful. The patches look great together and make the outside sturdy. Inside the plastic lining is perfect for possible spills. There's an inside pocket as well. The zipper closure is sturdy with an attractive pom pom. All in all, I"m very very pleased with this bag and will feel great using it when I travel. I wanted something that looked unique and this is it!
