I purchased 6 of the around town totes because I adored this particular bag. I used each one gently and when not I use I stored them in my closet I noticed the other day that every single strap piping has literally disintegrated! I cannot use these bags and because it has been some time since I've purchased them I am literally out $100's of dollars. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Ohz9p2b5JqE/TdKwGP8RGQI/AAAAAAAAKjo/1OV2JfsngUo/s1600/Stella%2526DotJewelryRoll2.jpg

I am very pleased with the studio thirty-one clutch! This particular one is a Hostess Exclusive- but the classic and modern body style studio 31 purses can be purchased by anyone and are the same concept. Option of length, texture, & color of your purse strap, the flap, and body style lets you be your own designer! The quality is comparable to that of a coach or vera bradely yet not as large of a price tag. I personally prefer the simple yet classic elegance of a script or swirl monogram embroidery. I would absolutely reccomend to family & friends!


Aubrey – I have two 31 Utility Totes, two bags from Amazon and one from Walmart. The bags from Amazon are cheaper than 31 bags but are every bit as good in terms of quality. Further, the Walmart bag cost the least but, in my opinion, is the best bag. The only downside is there aren’t many fabric choices. Also, I had another 31 bag that I bought as a work bag, it was expensive and it fell apart. I do like the 31 bags (I think the fabric is pretty) but I would rather save money. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41duKeBi%2BSL._SL500_SS500_.jpg
I own a small bag that is foil lined. It can be used as a cooler or lunch tote. The inside foil liner is letting lose all around the top. It appears the liner was too short to fit in the stitching of the zipper. I called CS and was told there was nothing that could be done since it was a gift and I didn't have the receipt. These bags cost way too much to not have a better return policy.

I don't think I could live without all my thirty-one bags! I have a big weekender bag that works perfectly for a carry-on bag or quick weekend away with my hubs. I have a duffel bag that holds a change of clothes if I have somewhere to go right after work. The gym bag is amazing because it has a compartment in the bottom for my sneakers! I swear by the tons of funds wallet because if you put on the purse strap, it's the absolute most perfect small crossbody. I'm waiting on the new lakeside tote to arrive. Our vacation to Isle of Palms, SC is in a month and a half, and I can't wait to use it as my beach bag. If you don't own a thirty-one bag yet, get one! They're a bit on the expensive side, but absolutely worth every penny. So many options for so many different uses! http://marketingmethodsonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Initials-Inc-Logo-300x283.jpg
