I fell in love with this bag when I saw it at Barneys, but couldn't bring myself to pay almost 1K for a clutch. I got this one for less than half retail on eBay and it was most definitely worth it! It's really pretty, and the size and depth make it an excellent day clutch, which I love. I think the day clutch is going to be huge this fall and winter. At the same time, I wore took it out to the opera on Friday night and it felt very at home there too (but the quilting requires the right outfit, I think). The pictures show it next to a smallish hardcover book, for reference. It easily holds my Money wallet, iPod, cell phone, keys and coin purse (containing a lipstick, perfume atomiser, nail file, comb and Purell). I could also stick my sunglasses in there if I really wanted to. My only complaint is that the front zipper is useless. I forgot they weren't functional on the Matelasse bags and it kind of drives me nuts, because I usually put my cell and keys there in my regular moto bags.
