Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveTheLord Love this bag and loved the fast shipping.
I would suggest buying both the medium and the large bag. I bought this bag to take on vacation and it was the perfect size. It would not be large enough for a beach bag or gym bag. The bag held all the things I would carry in my purse, plus my IPad and four magazines. It also has a zipper so you don't have to worry about losing anything. The other huge plus is how fast Ballard had my ordered shipped to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveTheLord Excellent size and durable.
I use this bag as my gym bag and love it. It has enough room for my make-up bag, change of clothes and swimsuit. When I get to the gym, the bag neatly folds to fit in my locker. The only thing I would change if I was designing, would be to make the straps a little longer.

This is a great bag for travelling and for the beach. It has an interior zip pocket to keep your phone, keys, money etc. I originally bought this bag as a birthday present for a friend and have now ordered one for each of my friends birthdays and everyone loves it!

I'm very pleased with my medium tote in black. I didn't have it monogrammed so can't speak to that, but I use it as my daily work purse and can fit in papers or files that I need to transport home and back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joey922 Makes a Great Gift!
I bought three of these bags as gifts for the hostesses of my baby shower. I loved that I was able to choose from so many colors and styles of monogramming to make them work for each personality. I was thrilled with the quality of the bag. These would be the perfect beach bag or carry all when traveling. I ordered the largest size and for the money, it's a great bag with plenty of room.

I purchased 86 of these totes for a shower we gave our daughter in law for our first grandbaby. I got them all in white with every guest's name embroidered in cornflower blue. Ordering could have been a nightmare but the wonderful reps on the phone made it a breeze. They looked amazing! and everyone was thrilled with their gift. These bags are BEAUTIFUL and look much more expensive than they are. Love these totes!!!!

We ordered these large tote bags in beige with white monogram as one of the gifts for the bridesmaids in our daughter's wedding. They are lightweight and the perfect size for a beach bag, overnight bag or gym bag. The leather straps are really stylish.

Immediately after opening to box I was in love with this bag! It was the perfect pink color and the monogram was centered and looked awesome! I chose the three blocked letter monogram, with the center letter larger than the rest. The quality and structure of the bag is beyond what I anticipated! The bag is lined and stands on its own without anything inside. I am super excited to purchase my bridesmaids bags and use them on my wedding day! Thanks Ballard Designs!

Rated 2 out of 5 by 4MyWife Quality Bag, Monogram Poorly Executed
Overall Rating = FAIR (2stars)
The quality of the bag was excellent, but once again the execution of the personalization was flawed--the monogramming was not centered on the bag and it was painfully apparent. The bag was given to my wife as a gift for an upcoming vacation, so she used the bag regardless of the error. I wish I would have had the monogram stitched by one of the local businesses instead. This is atleast the third time that the quality control has been sub-standard on the personalization of recent purchases (backwards letters, crooked monograms, and now off-center monograms).

I bought these as gifts for two friends and they loved them! One said she had wanted to get one for herself but kept putting it off and was so glad I had gotten one for her. The bags are very large and roomy and can be used for so many things!

It's a great summer bag, light weight with many fashion options. You can use it as a beach tote or as your every day bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LFKNJ The Green color is not as pictured.
the Green Tote comes through very muddy and brownish. I was very disappointed, however customer service took care of my issue when I called to register my disappointment.
Also, the lettering in my monogram ( Style 16) was not satisfactory for the letter K. It looked like H. Again, customer service was helpful and took care of my problem. I'll be ordering another bag.
The bags are great in general, and I have given them to friends as gifts and they love them

I really love the bag, especially for longer trips where I need to carry more items. The zipper is my favorite features. When I am traveling I like everything secure. It is bigger than I thought it would be. I might have been better off with the medium. However, I think the larger size will have it's benefits, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ANSD Great Bridesmaids Gift!
I ordered 14 of these bags for my wedding party (BMs, moms, readers etc). All the colors came out beautifully and true to the picture on the site. I did have two that were messed up. One I messed when typing the monogram and the other had a brown piece of fabric along the monogram that looked like a spot. Ballard replaced both of the bags without question and with no charge to me. They even expedited shipping so I would have them in time. I was very impressed by the level of customer service from this company and I would recommend these bags to anyone. Thank you!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bendy Terrific Summer Purse!
Needed a casual tote for the summer and I found a great one at Ballard. It is so roomy. Price was terrific and am tempted to get other colors. Upon receiving the white tote I sprayed it with Scotch Guard for protection.
My only concern is the lack of a closure. Wish the zipper closure had been available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chichi These bags are great! I give them as gifts.
They are large enough to hold many articles in smaller organizational purses for travel and I can use it as an extra carry-on when flying. I also love that it zips across the top.

Bought this tote as a Mother's Day gift. She loves it! She lives in NYC and I had intended for her to carry it as an everyday tote. She says she is keeping it for special occasions as it is so beautiful. Thank you for making her Mother's Day special.

I bought the large tote because tt was $30 for the bag, embroidery and shipping. I love the cost and the bag is really cute! If you put too much in it though the handle will start cracking as mine already has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AliZ Perfect size and lightweight too.
I purchased the medium tote bag with a monogram and selected two colors that coordinated with colors in my bedroom. The tote hangs on a decorative hook and is packed with items for a day at the beach in beautiful SW Florida.
This size with monogram would make a great gift too.
In my opinion, Ballard Designs offers the best overall selection for the home.

I have purchased 11 or 12 of this item and we all enjoy using it. We are a gropu of 10 women who travel together, so this tote works perfectly for our needs. If we
have a guest coming, I simply purchase another for that particular outing. It's Great Fun! They are the perfect size, fit under the seat in an airplane. They never fail to
to handle the needs of the day. Enjoy!
