I thought it would be different somehow
It's rare that I have a disappointing RTR experience, but I honestly didn't like this bag very much. The photos look wonderful and it certainly did coordinate well with my outfit, but I felt the big jewel accent looked fake and cheap, and the snakeskin just didn't do it for me in real life, the way it did in the photos. Also, I have this idea that I could use this as a clutch, because it looks like you can keep the gold chain (which is a little heavy, fyi) inside the bag, as shown in the photo. But, it turned out that I kept spending the evening opening the bag and dragging the chain all the way inside. It's certainly pretty and I have no doubt anyone who likes all those attributes will love it, and it would be fabulous with something gold or white or even really dark, like black or purple, because it will stand out. It just wasn't for me.
