I ordered the gold and hope to replace it. The purse is really lovely and comfortable dimensions. The shell design is on both sides (a pet peeve of mine). Most of the purses, bags, and clothing only have their design on the front. I wonder if the matching handbags have the shell on both sides as well--I'd love a set. note: Unfortunately my dogs found it and thought it smelled wonderful, too. I guess the shell is real since they picked several off and ate them. No noticeable side effects, but I did induce vomiting to be safe. I do wonder what type of shell (probably windowpane oyster?) because the squares had softened to a plastic-like texture. I hope these become available again in gold and white. I'd like to see the brown and red (or black?) available in the same pattern as the gold and white.

I bought the brown and absolutely love it. As others have said, it's well made and the photo doesn't do it justice. I wanted a change purse that would accommodate bills and cards as well. It's perfect (and pretty).

I gave a couple of these as gifts. They are so well made and attractive, I wish I had gotten one for everybody.
