The Uptown Girl features 4 exterior pockets: 2 large pockets (front), and 2 flat pockets (back) making it the baby version of BJ that's the best everday purse period. You can leave it open or zip it shut, whichever you prefer. Don't be afraid to take it on the road though, as the durable poly matiral is water resistant, easily wipes clean, and shakes free of sand, making it ideal for travel and the beach. The poly keeps it shape, so the sides always stand up and the reinforced bottom makes it easy to load and unload. Straps are reinforced and long enough to go over the shoulder to make it easy to carry almost anything.
