Rated 2 out of 5 by shopgirl Cheap & Flimsy
I'm a huge LP fan, especially of the totes - half my closet is replete with them! I also have a ton of accessories, clothes etc.
So of course I absolutely had to have this when I saw the classic blue & white of the Bright Navy In The Groove Mini pattern! Accented with gold, this looked like a real winner.
Imagine my shock and surprise when this arrived and I realized that this is made out of what feels like a printed shower curtain liner: it's thin and flimsy, so there's absolutely no way you could use this as a book bag in my opinion because it doesn't have the strength in the material or structure. It's also a lot more see-through than you would think when looking at it online.
I'm not sure whether or not I'm going to keep it - as a beach bag it would probably be cute, but given how thin and flimsy the material is, I doubt the interior pouch could even hold a cell or set of keys without sagging and making the whole bag look lopsided.
This is a huge disappointment for me because I feel like the LP totes used to be so much nicer than they are now. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by Uz2bbond Not Lilly quality
I put this tote on my christmas list, I love the print!
But when I opened the box and saw it, I had a hard time believing that Lilly Pulitzer would allow this kind of quality in a bag! I agree with previous posts, it looks like a shower curtain. For this kind of money I would have expected the bag to be more like the other totes LP sells. This quality is more along the lines of the reusable grocery bags :(. I wish I could return it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by xonikki Not What I Was Expecting
I have a few LP totes and have always fallen in LOVE with anything and everything I have ever bought.
However, this bag does not fall into that criteria. I received it as a gift for Christmas, and it is cheap and plastic-like--definitely not worth $98.. I was expecting a much thicker, heavier material that would actually be able to withstand something like books. It also had something that looked like burn marks on the bottom of the bag--weird, considering I unwrapped it directly from the package.
Needless to say I will be making a return on the bag. Lilly, I love you but this bag was a huge disappointment compared to your others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by KC74 Disappointed and returning.
I purchased this bag for my mother as a Christmas gift and I will be returning it. The quality is not at all what I expected. The bag is cheap, flimsy and the material is paper thin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by foreversummer Disappointing!
I received this bag as a gift for christmas. I loved the print's versatility! However, this bag is honestly very flimsy. I used it as a carry on bag at the airport and I was nervous it was going to snap in half on me. For reference I had a makeup bag, 2 magazines and 2 books in it and I felt the bag couldn't handle the load. Looks adorable on, but not sure how well it would work as a school or work bag. I will be using it only for the beach from here on out! Disappointed to give it such a bad review, it really is adorable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LaniK Cheap plastic material!
If you have bought similar totes from Lilly before, this is NOT like them at all. The material is a cheap plastic that is almost transparent. I had read the reviews about the material before I bought the bag but was hoping for the best since I love the pattern, but it was not worth it. The pattern does not look even a quarter as vibrant on the bag as you will expect. Save your money on this one. Not worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by anmoore Great, but wears out fast
I love this tote, as a college student I always have a ton of stuff to carry around. I bought this tote, since I was looking for something cute that could hold a lot. It's great, but the gold wears off really fast.
