Functional and Fun! Versatile clutch that starts a conversation!

The selling point on this purse is the uniqueness! It is a perfect clutch for any affair where you want to be noticed but not swimming in glitter noticed. It is a classic Kate Spade - modern but classic all at once. The inside and the back of the clutch quote are highlights to this conversation starter. they inside and the WONDERFUL quote on the back ( possibly my favorite in the book). The inside can function like a wallet - with pockets for cards and a zippered inside pouch area. The laminate the purse gave it that "book " look and also served as a protector against the elements of the night. GREAT CLUTCH! This is one that Edith Wharton would appreciate seeing on the most alluring woman in the drawing room :)

Definitely a conversation starter!

I've had my eye on this clutch for awhile and was so happy to see that RTR had it. I got a lot of questions and compliments on it ("Is that a book?!"), and people kept asking me what I was reading-LOL! It's a little small on the inside (fitting my make-up and cell phone was difficult), but it was such a fun clutch that it was totally worth it!

I wanted to keep it forever!

This tied my outfit (magenta dress, black shoes, rhinestones) together perfectly! It's big enough to hold all the essentials but not overwhelmingly large. I was able to firmly grip it under my arm all night, even while dancing! The book-look was a great conversational piece too

Perfect for a 20's themed auction gala!

I rented this purse as a last minute accessory, and could not have been more pleased with both the experience and the purse! The purse arrived in perfect condition and added the perfect finishing touch to my subtly Gatsby-esqe outfit. I wore a lace cocktail length dress and focused mostly on hair and makeup to fit the theme since I wasn't in the mood for long pearls and a headband. It is a fun clutch to carry and a great addition to my night! I am including up-close pictures because the details are what make this bag. Also, there is a clear layer over the entire bag which gives it a little bit of a reflective quality. Thanks RTR!

"There was about her the mysterious authority of beauty… highly trained and full of conscious power"

This Kate Spade clutch was too cute! I love the book quote on the back, I rented this for my birthday dinner and it was the perfect finishing touch to my bronze Opening Ceremony dress (also a rental)!

Best Clutch ever!

I love this clutch so much I'm considering buying it on eBay! It's surprisingly roomy - I could easily fit all the necessities: phone, cards, lipstick, chapstick. Overall, probably my favorite thing I've ever rented on RTR (and I've loved everything I've ever gotten)

Unique clutch to jazz up a black lace dress

I love the clutch; however, I was bummed to see that the plastic on the corners had been damaged, and the corners of the bag looked shabby and dirty. Time to retire the one I was sent!

Adorable!

Loved this! It was a perfect pair to the Clover Canyon 'Santorini' dress for an outdoor ceremony. It's near the size of a book and holds everything that one needs for an evening out. The clasp is sturdy so there is no fear of losing anything.

Cute, but a little damaged

Really cute clutch. Nice style, adorable design, etc. Really big with an inside zipper pocket and credit card slots. The cover is plastic and there was some cracking on the "binding" of the book. Not super noticeable to anyone else, but this little rental has definitely been used.

black tie event

really cute KS clutch. would be perfect for a night out but not a formal affair that I'm going to. way too casual. love the clutch in general though. I probably won't ever do the surprise pick though.. i can't take a chance of the accessory not working again.

Perfect wedding day accessory!

I wore a blush gown for my wedding, and the pink in this clutch complimented the dress perfectly. The size was ideal for carrying just my phone, lipstick, and compact. It was a touch of whimsy to a fun but formal wedding, and it looked fabulous in pictures! We had a literary themed reception, so it was a perfect fit.

"why did you bring a book?"

I loved this clutch, and it was definitely a conversation piece. It looked great with the dress and I got so many compliments. My only issue was that the entire back of the bag was wrinkling underneath the plastic, and it couldn't be smoothed down. The front was fine, but you could tell this bag had been used before.

The Final Touch

I used this as the final touch on an interpretive Gatsby costume. I rented the Lilly LBD, the necklace, and this bag for an all around 20s inspired look. I didn't want to go "too costumey" but thought dressing up a LBD would be a happy medium. I will say about the purse, it was incredibly difficult to open. It could have just been me, but I couldn't quite figure it out.

Cute!

I got a lot of compliments on this. I took it to a birthday gathering at a vineyard, and then brunch with my MIL the next day. Its hard to fit a lot of items in it, so be sure to minimalize! I could only fit a lip gloss and my phone.
