Before I begin reviewing the clutch, I want to give you a little overview of the site which I received the product from for reviewing purposes.
Bagables are an online retail store in the U.K which supplies bags, suitcases, backpacks, purses/wallets and unisex clothes at competitive prices. Well known branded products are also featured on the site- brands such as Fossil, Kipling, Fiorelli, Gola, Nica, etc... They also have a store located in Cranbrook, Kent. If you're not keen on online shopping, pop into their store and take a closer look at what they've got in stock.
So, the highlight of this month so far is receiving a gorgeous 'Fossil Emory Clutch', from Bagables, in the colour expresso. I am impressed to have received the clutch in less than a weeks time- for me, that is very quick. My clutch was sent via 2nd class post- orders that is under £75 is delivered free via 2nd class post. For more details about delivery information, click HERE.
From the start, before even holding the clutch, I instantly knew I would love it because for one, it is an authentic Fossil product, two, it is made out of durable soft leather and three, it has many useful compartments for me to place my coins, cash, cards and bits and pieces in. That is exactly what I need in a clutch. It is perfection!
As a bonus, the colour is a deep brown colour, expresso, which gives the clutch a nice vintage look. You could get this in teal or magenta but I feel that the colour brown associates more with vintage than any other colours there are.
This clutch looks big but I think that is actually a good size for a clutch. I have a big bag and I dislike it when I have to feel around for my coin purse for quite a while. With this clutch, I could easily grab hold of it when it's inside my bag. If you own a small bag, then a small purse isn't a problem of course.
Anyhow, here are the measurements: the length is 18.5cm; the height is 10cm and the depth is 2.5cm.
On the front, there's an obvious Fossil plaque with the words long live vintage 1954 engraved on it.
If you open the flap where the plaque is, you'd see that there's a lovely compartment where you can keep loose bits of paper. I'm going to use that part to store my receipts. The press studs are at the moment a bit stiff as the clutch is still new, however hopefully it will loosen up a tiny bit in time. I suppose that it being stiff is good as it prevents the insides from falling out.
There is a zipped section above the flap. I particularly love how the clutch is lined with different sized diamond prints. It's very pretty and it makes the clutch look much less plain.
Following on, the zipped section is spacious enough to fit quite a lot of coins in. As you can see, I've already stuffed a few coins in already. I actually prefer to use my card instead of cash/coins as it's more convenient for me but some restaurants don't accept cards so nowadays I keep cash/coins in hand just in case!
At the back, there's a smaller flap with press studs. If your clutch gets too full or fat, then you could snap the top half with the groove to the top bottom without the groove.
When you open up the small flap, there reveals 12 card slots, 1 clear I.D window, 1 zipped section and a note pocket. I don't have many cards at the moment but I will do in time so therefore the empty card slots will come in handy. As for the clear I.D window section, I would probably put a nice picture in it.
The zipped section here is very useful. I could put some important things of mine in it and be assured that it won't fall out as it's sucured by a zip and also a flap with press studs once I close the clutch.
The note compartment is very handy. It doesn't have a zip so I could easily check how much cash I've got on hand and also I could super easily pull them out whenever is needed. I could insert quite a lot of notes in it and if, I don't have enough space, which I doubt, I would store them in the zipped compartment.
The RRP of this clutch is £55 but you can shop this at Bagables for only £49.50 saving you a total of £5.50.
I, and along with a few other customers, previously had problems communicating with the people at Bagables as there were problems with their email. However, the problem is now fixed. I hope that technical problems won't occur again. Other than communication problems I had with the people at Bagables, I would definitely recommend Bagables to you due to their lovely service (Thanks Tasmin!), quick dispatch time and also their quality products. I have read quite a few reviews from satisfied customers so it's not only my product that is good!
What, at the moment, do you need to purchase?
Happy Wednesday! :)
