I had never carried a "tiny purse" before and thought I would wear it to one of our shows and that would be it. But I have fallen in love with it. I haven't carried a big heavy purse in months! The straps have swivel hooks and can be removed, giving you 2 bags for the price of one... You can snap on the wrist strap and have a clutch you don't have to hang on to (I don't like clutches!) or you can snap on the long strap and wear it cross body. It has one outside pocket that's the perfect size for your phone. It measures 4.5"W x 8.5"H x 1.5"D, and cross body strap has a drop of 24". The wonderfully supple leather comes in distressed olive, distressed brown or black.
