Anyone else pick up this large, quilted vinyl tote? I ordered tangerine. Should be a good carry everything, bag with no fuss.

Not attractive, too big, looks cheaply made, no outside pocket, and why does Iman always use goldtone hardware? Joy is smart to have Iman on this project.$$$$ Joy's people are Iman, Serena, Todd, and I think Randy, since Esteban is gone. Last edited on 6/9/2013

Sharon, I ordered the Black with the blue wallet. I have purses from Michael Kors and Coach and Sac. I really liked the organization inside. I bought another purse from Joy many years ago and it still looks good. I feel the same way about gold hardware, Missy, but I can remove it. Missy, you might want to filter yourself when you slam someone else's style. Just take a breath, girl.

40,0000 are sold @ $40 so somebody likes them. I could see this as an overnight bag or gym bag, but not as everyday bag. To me it doesn't look like it could hold heavy items. I don't have to filter myself. We all have different tastes. I do like the wallets and sunglasses.Last edited on 6/9/2013

I'm sick of Joy screaming at me, so I won't buy anything from her.

I need one I can use in bad weather, haul my iPad and other stuff like for car shows, ect and not worry about wrecking it. Taking the bracelet chain off. I too, liked the pockets loved the water bottle fits in it! I have high end bags too, but sometimes an inexpensive fits the bill. I will load it up and see how it holds up.:)

Me either! She interrupts, rude, trying to hog the time and I cannot stand her yelling! Her merchandise is cheap looking and cheaply made. I have ordered bags from her before and returned them the same day. Never again!

Thought about ordering but I think it looks cheap. I bet there Will be a lot of returns. I mean for $40 you get just that a bag That looks like $40. Was gonna use mine when I didn't want To carry one of my high end bags (in the rain etc) but I think Not. This is not a good look--even the colors look bad. Like joy and iman but this is a no go.

I prefer Iman's designs without the Mangano influence. I've seen much nicer totes at this price. It looks stiff and not well organized. It has no outside pockets and the handles look flimsy.

not getting it, but it looks like a great bag for traveling. it seems like it would hold a good amount of electronic devices and other personal items. the price and color choice is great and i like goldtone hardware for a change. i have had other JM totes and they are not leather, but they have held up well..... certainly worth the money.

I bought the tangerine to haul my work stuff around and I love the color along with the red. I didn't think it looked really cheap myself and I have been known to plunk down $5K for a RL bag. I like what I like! I had the ruffle bag she sold years ago and I used it to take all of my cameras, CD and tapes and it took a beating and held up.

I tried to listen buy Joy is obnoxious and hogs the stage. I just tuned in to see the colors and grabbed my tangerine color and quit there.

I hope you ladies who bought this bag enjoy it. I myself don't care for it and think that the suedo leather looks too cheap. I have one of Joy Mangano's leather wheeled tote's and I find the style unpractical and I wish I had returned it, but much too late.

I feel the same- the straps don't look like they'll be secure at all!!

Almost 60,000 now. I would like to see the return rate.

I was tempted at first, but I couldn't sit through a presentation because Joy kept talking (shouting?) over everybody. My biggest concern would be the straps. I tend to pile in the stuff and would need something to withstand the weight. I noticed they put a laptop in to demonstrate, so maybe it will hold up. I liked all the color choices. Enjoy!

When I saw them demonstrate the laptop in the bag they had the tsv on a table!!! That's what made me think the straps wouldn't hold up.

Well, we'll see if it holds..if not, back it goes

It looked like really cheap plastic to me. I can't believe Iman & Joy are comparing it to $1000 bags and can't believe Iman would carry it. Or the sunglasses.

They were comparing those cheap sunglasses to Tom Ford glasses which is like comparing a Mercedes to a Pinto. And, I agree the tote is cheap and ugly.

I liked it because it was organized well but I took a look at the straps and said no. The straps needed to be heavier, rolled or thicker. I have a Dooney bag that is light too but when I pack it full (my fault, I tend to do that{#emotions_dlg.blush}) the straps dig into my shoulder. Now I have a Big Buddah bag that I pack full and I can carry it because the straps are rolled and not flat, like Joys bag was.

Iman NOR Joy would be caught DEAD with that bag on their shoulders.
