Cute + roomy!
The pink color is a nice, deep magenta/hot pink, not quite as bright as the
picture appears on my monitors. I love the double zippers on this. I would have
been happy with just a single compartment and the two zippers, because it's just
so stylish. (I happen to really like zippers on things, especially functional
ones.) I haven't had it long enough to really get a wear-and-tear report, but
I've found that the zippers are smooth and work well - I overstuffed it with a
small doll, and also too many pens, and though I could just barely zip it back
up, it worked and didn't split like a cheaper zipper.
Anyway, the case is soft and lightly padded. It is smushy with the shape only
defined by stitching on the bottom, the corners, and the zippers, so you can fit
oddly sized things in if you really want to. I was able to get a combination of
9 standard-sized fountain pens and sharpies into one side (had to stagger the
caps) and it was a tight fit, but worked. I think 7 standard width pens is about
my limit for ease of use. With fewer (or no caps to get in the way), there's
plenty of room at the end for erasers, a blotting rag, small sharpener, or the
I love that there are two compartments to separate things. My second compartment
currently holds extra ink phials for refilling on the go. 6 standard vials fit
comfortably, and i could probably wedge a 7th in if I really wanted to.
We'll see how the case holds up over time, but for the last few days, I've
really enjoyed using it. It's really cute and it's the perfect size for the
number of pens and pen supplies I like to carry daily.
