Rated 2 out of 5┬áby AnthroWayOfLife Beware of quality (kisslock)
I love these little types of bags, and was so excited when I saw them at my local store. The store had 3 of them, so I started looking for the best of them to pick up. I found that the quality on all three was sub-par. Worst offender: the kisslock closure is not a real kisslock: the rectangular metal closure (as seen in the pictures online) is "spring loaded", so basically it means that this rectangle of metal is welded onto the rim of the purse by a thin flexible metal tab. When you close the purse, the rectangle clicks into place, but to open the purse you must bend the rectangle back to unlatch it. Over time, the opening and closing motion will "fatigue" this weld, and the rectangular kisslock will just break off eventually from the frame (try bending a paperclip over and over gain, you'll see what i mean). Really too bad. Additionally, the 3 purses I inspected all had missing beads or uneven threading, plus the rectangular kisslock was welded crooked on all three of them.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Victorianist Cute and priced right
This bag looks like it is going for an art deco/20s feel.
When I saw it in store, I was bummed out that it looked a little cheap and felt a bit stiff in person. Unlike some of the beaded bags by Moyna (sometimes similar in style) this looked a bit "plastic". However, the pricepoint seems about right. The colors are nice and the dusty rose is even more muted and subtle in person.

I did not inspect closely enough before purchase and find that the bag does not fold over as shown here. It's middle is off and the top flap fold keeps it from sitting down over the body of the bag.
