This is a treasured bag of mine. I don't wear this one out much. One reason is because of the big, honking hardware. On one hand, I think it's absolutely fabulous (Look at the huge double Gs!), but in my day-to-day life, I like my logos to be low-key.

Another reason I don't wear this as often as I should is that the hardware is really shiny and gold. Gold looks great on warmer skin tones, but on me, it just doesn't suit me as nicely as silver does. Finally, the hardware makes the bag HEAVY. Without a thing in here, the purse feels like it weighs at least 1 lb.

All issues aside, I do love this bag. I like to look at it, and once in a blue moon, wear it. The exterior of the bag is made with super soft, smooth, suede with glossy, black leather details. It has a snap closure. It isn't magnetized, so sometimes it doesn't snap shut easily. I really like the leather at certain points on the bag. I especially like the stripe of leather that goes up the back and then forms the clasp.

This is a smaller sized bag. It measures at just under 12" wide by 9" high. It has a 13 1/2" drop. The width of the strap is .75". There is one main compartment on the inside and a deep zippered pocket.
