Dressy bag for dinner out.

Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
I was surprised at the size of it, though that could be because I'm not used to carrying a clutch. It was perfect, though, and worked just right for a nice dinner out on vacation.

I rented this with a dress for NYE. It was the perfect size, being a little larger than other clutches. I was able to keep a good grip on it during the night and was not worried I would lose it!

Beautiful but a little small

Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This is a gorgeous clutch, but I would have preferred something with a little bit more room. I managed to put my phone, ID, cash and lip gloss in this one, but it was like a game of Tetris. I've also rented the Kate Spade Black Agathe clutch, and would recommend that one if you prefer a bit more space or tend to carry more than you need to!

Was happy, but nothing special

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this clutch for a formal event. I missed the mark slightly with it as it didn't seem dressy enough to go with my gown and 'bling' pieces. It worked well, but I certainly wouldn't have considered it a designer piece. It is fine for a night out, but for a formal event I would suggest a diffent fabric.

This clutch is glamorous and not over-stated. It is also roomy.

I accompanied this with a black Herve Leger dress and black heels. It is elegant and big enough to hold phone, some make-up, money and gum. The leather is beautiful but not over-stated,

This was a cute clutch, although it was somewhat heavy and had a small lipstick stain inside. Overall it was very nice looking. I loved carrying it around for the night.

Matched great w my NYE dress

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The only drawback I had was that there was no magnet or clasp to hold the purse shut. Other than that, I thought the material was great and it held everything comfortably.

I rented this for my mother to take to a wedding, since she doesn't have a black clutch and doesn't like the style of any of mine. We loved it. It's roomy, classic, and was in great condition. Thanks RTR!

I didn't get it on time to use it!! The clutch was very nice, the RTR customer service was even better. I was quickly refunded my money with a sincere apology, although I did expect a comp for the inconvenience. I will continue to use the service because of the great selection.

This clutch was great. It is easy to match everything and has a really fun opening. It is also bigger than I expected - it fit everything I needed for the night easily without feeling too large - exactly what a clutch should be!

Simple and elegant. Almost more navy than black.

I found this color more midnight than pure black, so might not be the right choice to pair with a black dress.

Wore this with Mark & James by Badgley Mischka Rich And Famous Dress for my bachelorette party. The purse is perfect for evening dinner/club/ other events. AND it actually fits a ton of things! I fit my wallet, iphone5, keys, and many more things in there, something that I normally can't do with evening clutches. HIGHLY recommend.
