Love, love, LOVE this purse! It's so much more attractive in real life than the photo!! The photo's fine, but what you can't see very well is that the front side has 2 layers: a beautiful reflective gold & black behind the tan/dark purplish ombre outer layer. I get lots of compliments. The outer layer appears to be laser-cut & very lacey in appearance, allowing the reflective gold to glitter as the purse moves in any way. I barely noticed that in the ad photo. The reflective gold matches the many other gold details for a polished look. The embellishments clipped on the front side are cheap-looking to me, so I ordered others (upgraded) and replaced them...from Etsy.com and art supply shops. Shipped fast from China.
Caution: if you keep the tassel, be aware that the chain is held in by glue and it doesn't take a lot of heat to melt it and then it comes apart. Maybe don't sit it in the sun for long...but I live in Florida, US. I found a great replacement at Michael's art supply with NO glue.
