Chic little number
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The bag was beautiful and went nicely with my dress -- the dress was dramatic, so I wanted a bag that was pretty, but more subtle. This is the type of bag that will definitely go with almost anything.
It took me a number of tries before I figured out the trick of getting it open properly - I don't normally use this type of bag, I am used to simple zippered Vera Bradleys! I don't know if I can describe it exactly, but if you hold the crystal accent and push forward the bag will pop right open, whereas if you are trying to pull the two sides open it won't cooperate! Made for some awkward moments fumbling around with it.
It was also rather small IMO - I only took along an Iphone, a little cash, and my ID -- and my car keys wouldn't fit into the bag. I'd prefer something a bit larger that could at least hold my phone and my keys.
I'd consider renting this bag again, but I'd have to take off ALL my other keys and ONLY put my car key in this bag with the phone, because that's all that would fit. My house keys, alarm fobs, etc. - would take up all the space.
