One of the hazards of carrying around You Bags is that they defy today’s concepts of fashion. For example, soon after receiving this tote, Claire was out with friends and, when one of them noticed the images on the bag, she said “Claire, did you know that face looks exactly like you? I mean exactly! Is that why you got the bag?” As funny as that is, the reaction to this You Bag surprised me more.
