I bought this purse in fuchsia for my sister and the Lucy Tote LX in black for my mom for Christmas. I got tired of my mom complaining that every purse she gets is destroyed in 2-6 months, so I decided that I would get her a purse that she could beat the crud out of someone and still look fashionable. I consulted with my sister on whether or not to buy one for my mom because she's the "purse expert" and said that the fuchsia one was "lit" so I got her this one for Christmas, when she got it she said that she was hoping that I got it for her and was glad I did . My mom and my sister LOVE their purses, it's been 4 months and both purses look BRAND NEW still, they wipe clean, are very durable, and have a ton of space. My mom has requested that I get her one in every color for the next couple years, needless to say, very happy customer!
