I have one, and lets face it, I'm really not the beach type. But this one is real purdy. I bought the little purse in the other colour way, so perhaps it would be total over kill. One the flip side not getting it would be putting a stop to my Lover bag collection, just to give perspective. It part of Lover's 'Zula Nation' accessories collection which comprises of two beach bags and a purse (which I grabbed during their online sale). The collection uses up excess Zulu fabric from the White Moon Rising collection.
