While I may not like to admit it, I love purses. Some women obsess over shoes, but for me, a good purse is like a girl's best friend. When I purchase a purse, it usually goes with a specific outfit, season, or fits a need in my life. For example, I have some purses that I purchased just for carrying books when I'm traveling. When I found out I was going to have an opportunity to review a Nicole Lee purse – I was very excited! I had seen their purses featured on quite a few blogs and outfit pairing pins on Pinterest.  Even better, I was getting an opportunity to review one of the new purses from their Spring Collection – The Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote.

Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote: About the Tote & Video Review

The Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote is different from many of the tote purses you will see on the market because it's not just practical, but very fashionable. When many of us first look at a purse, we are drawn in by a purse's overall shelf appeal. On the exterior, you are drawn in by the faux crox trim and laser cut heart and eyelet details – giving a very nice contrast that is bold, but not overwhelming. To finish off the look they have a beautiful decorative metallic belt across the top of the purse, rounding out a fun chic design. Not only does the outside look fashionable, but it's functional as well, with a top zipper closure and zippered wall pocket on the back. As for the handles on the purse, you can enjoy the dual top handles with buckle detail, or make use of the very useful shoulder strap – one that is designed for comfort since it is double padded (this is a big deal for us ladies who prefer shoulder bags – some straps really are killers with a full purse!)

As for the interior of the Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote, it is lined with a beautiful geometric satin lining, resembling stars or flowers. This bold color can be seen through the eyelet – giving it a very eyecatching and fun look when carrying the purse. Of course, the inside of the purse is all about functionality too. The purse has a pair of open wall pockets on the interior front, and another well-sized, zip wall pocket on the interior rear wall that bears the Nicole Lee name plate.  To see more of the Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote – feel free to check out my video review below.

Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote:  Functionality

As a busy woman who is often on the go and travels quite a bit – I demand that my purses be functional and fashionable. I'm not one of those people who buy ugly purses with no personality. A good, everyday purse should carry everything I could possibly need and look good doing it. My purse, in many cases, is a survival kit if a client calls me when traveling or someone around me needs something.  It's very common to find pens, my iPhone, wallet, makeup, a first aid kit, chapstick, a paperback book, and more in my purse. For me, the Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote does a great job filling all of my needs. I can fit everything from my old purse in the Delilah and still have room to spare. For the first time, I even have a purse that can fit my iPad 2 and not be strained!

Along with fitting my iPad, I enjoy the fact that this tote actually has a top zipper closure. I love tote purses, but quite a few of the totes on the market have no zipper. As some of you know from reading some of my other reviews, I am a klutz. If I don't have a top zipper, everything in my purse will eventually go flying. My worst fear is dropping my purse and seeing my iPad or iPhone fly out, cracking the screen. The zipper gives my personal things some Susan protection! Also, I love the two interior pockets in this purse. One is the perfect size for a wallet or checkbook, while the other gives my iPhone a nice home. Nothing is better than being able to open my purse if my phone goes off and quickly find it! From my experience, the Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote is truly designed for modern women like me!

Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote: Style

Another thing I love about the Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote is that it is an everyday purse and goes perfect with just about everything. It goes great with jeans and a t-shirt, or a nice light sweater coat. My favorite choice of outfits with this purse is a dark pair of blue jeans, lacy shirt, and sweater coat. If I don't feel like wearing an oversized sweater, I compliment it with a nice leather coat. For me, this is the best part of having a fun black purse – it really does go with just about any casual outfit. If you are looking for a fun purse that looks fashionable and is great for everyday use – I highly recommend the Suzy's Delilah Heart & Eyelet Tote.

I'll also admit it's nice having everyone compliment my new purse or ask where I purchased it when I'm out shopping.
