Autograph Double Handle Small Tote Bag
Just what I wanted!
A good sized bag without being too large. Will hold my phone, purse, specs, sunnies and any extras quite easily. Yet stylish and stunning with any summer clothing. Could do with more compartments but there are enough to orderly place one's belongings. Tad concerned the base will soil quite easily since not made of leather-like fabric. Otherwise, very happy with it. Good value for money! A great xmas present.

Great bag - even washable!
I bought this bag earlier in the autumn, and am very pleased with it! It's light, but capacious, with all the features I like in a bag. Definitely styled for the daytime, and quite robust. I wanted to share with other prospective buyers this story: After only having this bag for a few weeks, I accidentally upended a coffee into it. I dried it out and left it to air, but the coffee smell was still strong. The care tag indicates that it is not to be washed at all. I was ready to send it to the charity shop but decided to try washing it on a delicate cycle to give it one last chance. After removing the straps, it went through the washing machine just fine! Now, the smell is gone, and there is no sign on the bag of any of its past experiences. Very impressed with this bag!

Simple and chic
I bought the small version. It's a perfect size. The gold coloured metal trims look expensive (and are very shiny - which I like!). There are gold studs at the base of the bag but the base could do with being a bit more sturdy as it tends to sag. Leather trims are well-made, not rough raw edges. The body of the bag feels slightly padded. Enough pockets to put things that you need to hand (phone, travel card, etc). It's a great bag for everyday use - easy to throw things in and go out. Very happy with it.

New size needed
The only problem with this lovely bag is that this small version is too small, and the larger version is too large ( more like hand luggage than hand bag ). This small one is too dainty for everyday work use, which is what the style seems aimed at. Your expensive competitor does a more medium, laptop-holding, tote and I'm tempted to buy one of those instead of a couple more of the M&S versions ! I will delay until I see if a "medium" size appears in the near future.
