Glam on the outside, cheap on the inside
I rented this gorgeous clutch to pair with the Nicole Miller Majestic Waters Dress after seeing that it came with a hidden chain strap since I always get nervous about leaving clutches behind in bathroom stalls or near buffet stations (don't ask). Like another reviewer said, there is no fabric lining, so your belongings will move around. I was able to fit my iphone, lipstick, lipbalm, pocket-size Kleenex, a small ID holder, anti bac hand gel and a Listerine PocketPak into it but hardly anything else. Maybe that's a lot to cram in anyway, but those are my absolute bare essentials. Still, I had to borrow my fiance's tuxedo pockets for my bulky Sony Cybershot. I have to say I loved how the clutch looked, but it fell a little short on its functionality. (Plus, the chain metal "hinges" had to be aligned just-so for the clutch to close, so I fumbled with it every time I had to open or close it. ) I would give it a solid B, based on looks alone.
