After MUCH debate over this bag or the mono pochette, I just couldn't help it! I went with the Beverly clutch b/c it's so pretty and great with a strap and without!!! I have been wanting a going out bag b/c my Manhattan is WAY too big for nights out. My next step is to spice up my collection with some Damier (Ebony and Azur) and MAYBE some MC!! I chose this over buying a work tote. Still thinking about getting one...probably the Damier Saleya MM with a scarf or something. In the meantime, here is my new goody!!
