Metallic tassel handbag
Metallic handbag has flap closure with two tassels unsnaps to reveal additional claw-hook closure. Lined interior with one zip and two slip pockets. • Leather. • Imported. • 147cm x 15cm x 35cm H. • Champagne or pewter.
I had my eye on this bag but did not want to pay the $200 price tag, so when it went on sale for $119 I decided to go for it. I ordered the champagne. It is a beautiful bag as shown, but there are a few strange things about it. The closure is odd. I could not get my bag to look (hang) like the picture. The additional hook closure is on the opposite side of the bag where the snap with the tassels are. This makes it a shorter, more square shape. I looked at it on my arm in the mirror and it still looks very nice like that, just smaller. To get it to look like the picture, I left the opposite side hook undone. This will make it look more like the picture, but be sure to fill it as it does not hold shape on its own at all. Also, without the inner hook closed, it will not be closed properly, but it does look nice on the arm. On the inside, the lining is ivory, and mine had some small spotty brown discolorations, they were light brown and not obvious but I found this a bit annoying. I gave this bag 5 stars because it is really pretty and large to hold all my things. The imperfections I found were not enough for me to knock the rating down at the $119 price.
To get the look in the picture where the model is carrying it, i leave the Additional inside claw hook unhooked. I only do the top tassel one. I pull out the sides to make them stick out and look pointy and this makes the bag look bigger and exactly like the picture. Hope this helps.
