"I love Kate Spade and I am a collector because most of her pieces are timeless. This petite crossbody beauty is no exception. From the moment i saw her, i knew she was the one. My friend had a similar colored style of a diffident brand, that i have admired for some time. The Merlot is rich in color; perfect for fall dressy or casual. It has beautiful curves. Nice size to fit the essentials (phone, keys, lipgloss and money clip/card/id). There is an open pocket and a zippered pocket inside to easily access you items or protect valuables. I Love the details: gold Kate Spade decal on front, the inside stripes give a nice contrast when you open the purse. It also has a tiny gold Spade inside. To polish it off, my favorite detail is the tassel. I will cherish this purse for many years to come. My wish is to pass it down. Also purchased one in Navy, plan to add the black and grey to my ever expanding collection."
