I purchased this cover for myself. The colors in the photo do not do justice to the actual item, being as the pink is closer to mauve and the burgundy is closer to plum. Despite this I love this cover. It is quite lady-like and sturdy, too.
I have gotten many compliments and inquires as to where I purchased this bible cover. I would have liked more room for my journal or notebooks, but I am able to keep a spiral index card book, 2 mini notebooks, a pen, highlighter and a pack of 4 dry highlighters along with a hard cover bible.
It does not lay completely flat, however this could be caused by my hard covered bible, a soft cover may allow for more give in the side pockets.
