I think this bag is going to be one of those things. I saw a family friend wearing it this past weekend and instantly knew it was for me... a great summer bag, weightless, big enough to throw a beach towel into, and easy to wipe off the ice cream drippings, and it's a great textured microfiber...
'eBags.com' had it in the color I wanted (black), and had the best online price I could find (including free shipping)... Carlos Falchi Microfiber Tote, $176
It comes in other great colors too!
Included is the attached purse, inside pockets for phone, and a hook for keys
If you're traveling this summer, what a great bag to take along, but be careful there isn't a closure at the top.
