Cute, But Overpriced
I wanted a little bill/coin purse to use when I carry an evening bag. This one looked pretty on the web site, and since it's gold, I thought it would look "upscale" inside a dressy evening bag. Well, it IS quite pretty; I especially like the textured effect overlaid on the gold leather. However, it really only holds bills. When I try to sneak in a few coins, the pouch bulges unattractively. I believe this is a design flaw; the pouch needs a bit more depth to it. (It was not possible to see this on the web site photos.) In retrospect, considering how many designers make pretty pouches, I think I made a mistake on this purchase; I should have "shopped smarter" and bought a less expensive pouch. This alice + olivia really isn't any better, quality-wise, than similar items by other handbag designers. Since I've only used the pouch 7 or 8 times, I can't speak to the issue of how well it holds up. For $70, I hope it lasts for a long time!
