Lee Sands Ostrich Print Envelope Clutch w/Strap
Cute little bag
This is the perfect little clutch for going out. I bought it in orange and was impressed with the look; especially considering the low price. The strap is flimsy and unusable though so this should only be purchased for use as a true clutch. Very cute!
Great little bag!
This is a great little bag! I read the previous reviews and I ordered the orange clutch. I put my items in and carried it for a day to see if it would open. While I will agree that the snaps could be stronger---they still stayed closed. The magnets also found each other when closing. I personally don't understand why a clutch has a shoulder strap, I would never use that strap. I think it's much classier looking in my hand or under my arm (and safer-someone could grab that bag). One of the previous reviewers mentioned what she COULD put in the bag, and then what she couldn't. This is a clutch...meant for minimal amounts of items--cell, lipstick, credit card/cash and maybe readers (glasses). They make flat wallets for credit cards for clutches. Lee Sands should make these to match. It's not meant for cosmetic bags, wallets, etc. Put that in your tote and keep the light stuff in the clutch---besides overloading your bags/clutches ruins them. I think this is a great little bag and I ordered two more colors! They're nice companions to my Dooney totes and my G.I.L.I. totes.
the purse itself is great. the flaw is in where the strap attaches. that's what causes the snaps to come open. if you can fix this flaw you will have a 5 star purse
Magnets don't work
I loved the color, style, size, and shape of this clutch. It would have been perfect had the magnets worked even halfway. But they didn't, which is a shame as it's such a small thing to get right. This one's a miss. Returned mine asap.
Lovely clutch but poor magnetic clasps
As others have said this is a very cute clutch in pretty colours but it keeps opening espcially with the shoulder strap attached. The 2 magnetic clasps are not strong enough
to hold down the front flap. Mine will just about stay closed with a few loose credit cards,
a slim phone, small comb & lipstick, a tissue and loose dollars, it cannot accommodate a wallet/ makeup bag or anything bulkier.
I cannot understand why QVC's quality control hasn't restricted its sale with all the other complaints, its such a shame as its a neat little purse which is needed these days when most bags are fashionably larger. I'm keeping mine as it matches my outfit for a summer wedding but I'm not happy with it constantly opening itself.
I Think It's Cute
I purchased the orange and it is just wonderful. I don't think it looks cheap at all. This is not a purse that you will fill up as the sides are sewn together with no space. This might be the reason others said the magnets don't hold. It is a nice cute purse to hold the basics (thin wallet, phone & lipstick). Sometimes I like to get away from the big bags.
Great size- nice feel
Bought Black and Cream. I like both basics. I have not used them yet but,
upon examination I realized the magnetic closure was weak.
Too bad ....
Really like the 'clutch' bag...w/opt strap-hmmm
This 'clutch' is NOT SMALL (I'm 4'8/88lbs-slightly big for myself). VERY WELL MADE-LOOKS EXPENSIVE,,,AND...DESIGNER! I agree w/other reviews about when using strap, purse pulls down and it 'opens' up. It WILL spill-out if full. Otherwise, if used as a 'clutch'...CAN'T BEAT IT...ESPECIALLY AT THIS LOW $$$. For what you get-OMG, GORGEOUS! Kudos Lee Sands! I ordered 'cream', rec'd, LOVE. Before ordering the cream, I went on 'WL' for yellow. I'm SO HOPING to receive it. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. JUST PERFECT FOR ALMOST EVERY OCCASSION. I'll be back for more colors. P.S. I tried a 'sterling' chain (neck) and purse stayed closed-maybe this will help someone (next would be 'velcro' tabs-under flap)...GOOD LUCK-they're worth every penny!
Good but not Great
Got in several colors. Quality of purse is varied . Received some that were not sewn together evenly. Seams did not match up. Orange inside was not pushed out and not shaped correctly. Brown was really more of a camel color, not a dark rich brown as the color swatch shows. For the price, I guess the clutch is OK ...but not great....
attractive bag in orange!
I had to try this because the presenter was so impressed with this particular bag from Lee Sands (I love his eelskin products), and I have to say that the leather looks very high quality. I love the ostrich embossing, and I do not think it looks fake or cheap. Because of other comments I read here, I have checked the magnetic closures and am not sure they will lock well when the purse is carrying things (have not tried it yet). I am reserving judgement on the closures, but the product is very nice and good quality for the price. I would order it in other colors, but I personally don't change purses very often.
I got the grey clutch and sent it back immediately. It looks very cheap. The color was very pale which made it look worse. No way could it pass for even a good imitation of the real thing.
I ordered grey and it looks and feels cheap. Very disappointed because the reviews were so good.
