Useful but rather over priced
on 13 August 2013
This is a very handy purse/bag for holding a lot of small items. On a recent holiday I used it to carry a variety of essential first aid and personal supplies, neatly and stylishly organised. Although it technically has three compartments (with only the central one having a separate zip), the outer two are stitched on in such a way that two further, small slots are formed on either side of the zip pocket. These are perfect for small flat things, such as a couple of individually wrapped antiseptic wipes or a strip of tablets.
I'm giving this item 3 stars because it is is unlined. I agree with other reviewers who have suggested that this makes the bag overpriced. In addition, it reduces its usefulness. I'd hoped to be able to use it as a clutch bag for evenings, particularly as the pink I bought (Very Berry) matches one of my smart outfits exactly. However, the rather thin fabric means that the personal contents can sometimes be identified from outside the bag - not what you want on an evening out. This criticism doesn't apply to the second bag I bought in Metallic Silver - the coating on this bag is far classier than I'd imagined and makes it totally opaque, perfectly suitable to use as an evening bag.
