I've seen this in the store and I have to say whilst I'm not the biggest fan, in real life it's quite nice.
I had a Mickey/Minnie Cath one to take to Disneyland Paris and literally used it for the 4 days I was there and it's been banished to the cupboard ever since. Don't buy it unless you're certain she'll actually use it
If it helps, I got the gingerbread man one for Christmas last year; within a week the cover on the straps was coming off. Terribly made bag, just awful quality. In fact, I'd go as far as saying the worst I've ever owned and I usually buy from Primark/New Look so not high end. Avoid, avoid, avoid!! Such a shame as it was beautiful and my purses from them lasted ages, hence why I paid so much for the bag.
I love cath kidston and Disney so I’d love that bag! Remember it’s not for you!! They are really good and my previous ones have lasted ages and ages - their customer service is great too so for the pp I’d have taken your bag back. They will give you a gift receipt so she can exchange it if she wanted to. She is lucky to have such a thoughtful friend
