Joe Fresh Tote

Love my new tote bag from Joe Fresh. It's lined and has a nice size, zippered inner pocket. Also comes in orange/tan and red/burgundy. Was tempted to get the red one but feared it might bleed every time I wore a white top. Bonus - it was only $19. Great gift idea & at that price you could fill it with other Joe items (makeup, socks, pjs).
