As far as I'm concerned,"perfect"is a word to use very selectively. However, as far as evening purses are concerned the design of this purse by Judith Leiber is nearly perfect. Its design is simple, yet there is enough sparkle to satisfy the the glitz quotient. The purse is timeless and classic and can be worn to a evening affairs as well as black tie events. It would complement a very glitzy gown or a sophisticated black dress. It is versatile and attention getting. And the fact that is was designed by Judith Leiber brings it to new heights. It is linear looking with a slightly wider bottom than top. There is a very subtle bend to the lines. The bag is covered with a soft and rich looking black satin. There is a clamper type gold tone metal frame. The gold metal is textured on the front and has a brushed tone on the top. There is a scalloped accent on the front frame that is encrusted with clear and sparkling Swarovski crystals. There is a double black thin silk carry handle with a drop of 6". These straps are attached to the bag below the frame where there are decorative accents. These accents are entirely made of Swarovski crystals and they resemble stylized fleur de lis shapes. They "loop" around and have depth and dimension. They are not flat. There are four of these accents. This decorative details provide significant interest and panache to the bag. The inside is lined with a black silk fabric. There is a zippered pocket and two open slip pockets. The gold tone identification "Judith Leiber" panel is affixed inside. The bag is an early one judging from this panel. The inside shows minor indications of use and age. The measurements of the bag are 9"w x 5 1/2"h x 1"d. The purse is in very good condition, especially for its age. Some of the Swarovski crystals are showing the glue underneath a common occurrence for a bag of this age. There are minor signs of age and use throughout, mostly on the back. However, it has many years ahead of it and remains a beautiful purse by the Queen of Bags, Judith Leiber!
