I have wanted a Caraa Studio Tote for 2 years now, not because so many of my friends and family have one and love it, it is because now that I have used now, I know how useful this bag is. I used to carry a Longchamp which in all honesty was a good bag. However, it didn’t have any pockets for organization and the quality is actually not great. I have used the Studio tote for few months now and it is not only great looking tote, it can convert into a backpack and comes with half docent pockets to help me organization. The best part is the side pocket for shoes. Even when I am not going to work out, I often sticking in pair of loafers in the side show pocket to change into after work. The nylon material is battery and silky which feels super soft and I love the gold hardware accents. I have since purchased this again as a gift for my sister and she loves this as much as I do!.
