Versatile larger shaped bag, 10-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches at flat base that has pewter color peg legs. It rises 10 inches tall at the center, then 11 inches on side, 16 inches across the full curved zipper top. As the yummy soft pebble leather works with personal items inside, the clever construction will let the top sides cinch inward for "squared" body shape, or flatten for "flared" body shape. Keep it unzipped, and you have a super roomy tote, or zip it up for security. The shape is also affected by the use of the deep side pockets, a zipper pocket and cell phone slot on the back. Comfy 15/16 inch flat leather shoulder strap is 28 inches long.
The background is handpainted in pewter gray and violet, the flowers and butterflies add colors of rose pink, green, gold, blue. Interior lined in signature burgundy fabric, zipper pocket on side wall and 2 open pockets on other wall. Key finder strap.
This bag comes with BONUS coin purse! 5 x 3 x 1 inch, curved dual-zip top (from either side), signature lining. Handpainted in the same motif and colors.
