"Adorable yet unique" is the definition of this lovely evening purse from Saks Fifth Avenue, made in Italy. Whoever created this bag, knew how to combine elements into a sweet yet unusual bag using minimal accents. The bag is small to medium sized and its shape is a bit unique since the top of the bag extends outwards on both sides and is not flat. The top sort of makes a "V" shape when looked at from the sides. The bag is covered with a durable matte satin. Horizontal strips of "ribbon" transverse across the bag. The ribbons are varied ranging from a narrow black velvet strip with a strand of flat round black beads to a lovely black sheer fabric that is tightly ruffled with a narrow band of embroidered flowers. There is an optional carry strap with a drop of 30". The carry strap is made from the black matte satin. There is an optional mechanism inside the bag to use to attach or detach the strap and use the bag as a shoulder bag or clutch. The bag closes internally with a magnetic closure. The lining is a black material that has a slight shine. There is an open slip pocket. The silver tone plaque affixed inside states "Saks FIfth Avenue Made in Italy." The inside is in very good condition although there are slight indications of age and wear. The bag measures 8 1/2"w x 6 1/2"h x 1 3/4"d. This is a lovely black bag. It can be dressed up or down. If you don't have a "little black bag", then this is the bag for you! Also can't beat the price!
