Pretty and functional.
This purse went really well with the dress I rented. It was a great talking piece as well since people would turn it over to read the back of the "book". It held more than I thought it would which was great. I would rent this again in a heartbeat.

Adorable
I had seen another 'book' in this Kate Spade series that a friend of mine had at a party a while back and was so excited to see it on RTR!! It's a great size to have at a party!

Beautiful bag, worked wonderfully all weekend!
I used this purse for my wedding weekend and I loved it! It went well with my dress for the rehearsal (which I also rented) and has ample room for the essentials. Kinda makes me want to own it...

Best Bag Ever!
I rented this bag for a wedding, it held much more than I thought it would and it is adorable. I wish I could keep this bag, and so did all of my friends.

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 :)

Great conversation starter!
I rented this clutch for a Great Gatsby themed party and it was such a nice touch to my outfit. It was a great conversation starter. It had a lot more space than I imagined. I was able to fit my iphone, lip gloss, keys, backup phone battery, and some makeup for touch ups. The credit card slots and zippered pocket was great for acting as a wallet instead of letting my wallet take up space.

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

Wish I could have kept it!
Everyone loved this! It is very unique and easy to accessorize with many types of dresses. It was larger than I imagined I had my iPhone, compact camera, fold in brush, lip gloss, and credit card/id with room to spare! The zipper pouch in the middle was nice as well. I will likely rent this again, it is a bargain for the price.

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!

In love with this bag!
I rented an entire outfit from RTR for a formal event and of everything I ordered this bag was definitely the hardest to return. I will very likely rent it again in the future, it's so pretty and adorable for many different looks and occasions. It pulled together my look so well, my only regret is that I didn't order to go with the dress I rented for Graduation! It is larger than I expected which worked great because everything fit better than a hand sized clutch would have.

So cute and unique!
This clutch was so cute - very original and different; everyone thought I was actually carrying a book! I rented this because it fit perfectly with my friends' shabby chic New England wedding (her colors were pink, mint, and gold). It definitely delivered the wow factor I was looking for - the only downside is that it is pretty small, so you can really only fit small things (nothing bigger than an Iphone/cell phone)...I was hoping to carry my camera in it. Otherwise, it was perfect!

Someone asked what I was reading! Very fun and cute clutch!
I really loved this clutch. It was actually larger than what I expected. It really was the size of a large hard cover book. So it was perfect for the wedding I went to. And I got a lot of compliments on it. And someone asked why I brought a book to the wedding which I thought was funny. Loved it, would totally rent it again.

Fun bag
I've always wanted one of these bags and was psyched to rent one. It was very cute and lots of fun to carry. Several people thought I actually had a book with me, which made me laugh. There wasn't a lot of room inside for the size of the bag, though. I had my phone, two lip glosses, mascara, and some credit cards and I swear, nothing else would fit. Thank goodness there was a valet because I don't think my keys would have made it in there.

"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)!

Coolest clutch!
This really made my prom outfit. The theme was Great Gatsby, and this clutch fit perfectly. I could fit my phone, keys, and some makeup in. My phone's large, or I could have put in more. This bag really looks like a book. I was talking to one of my friends, who patted me on the shoulder and said, "Sweetie, you really brought a book to prom?" It was perfect for me in every way. Oh, and the cover is slick, so if you get any water on it or something, you can brush it right off.

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)
