I use mine all the time as a small purse. Fits LV French purse wallet, cell phone, work ID, a few lipsticks, keys. I have lots of great bags, but I end up pulling the pochette out of the bigger bag and using it to run around during the day. Its great and very functional.
I admit I LOVE the pochettes! I like to carry it when we go out or to the mall, it's easy on my arms and holds enough. I keep my small epi agenda (which holds my id and stuff), my razr phone, my house keys and my checkbook in it. It doesn't feel too full with all that either.
