Perfect clutch/crossbody!

This is perfect for date night or running errands! It’s small but roomy and is great quality. I love having the option of using as a wristlet or a crossbody. Love to use when running to lunch and not having to grab my whole tote! Enough room for all my essentials!

Great little crossbody

Easily fits inside my Gemini for work. Crossbody is nice for when I just need to run a couple of errands, and don’t need my Gemini. Great purchase!

Brianne Napier (Long Beach, US)
Amazing customer service!

I couldn’t edit my last review I just made (maybe because I’m on mobile) but I mentioned a defect in my bag and the white elm team replied faster than I could have dreamed! They assisted me with my order without me even asking and I am so grateful! They really back the quality of their bags and make sure you have a great experience. I already loved the bag, it’s perfect for my lifestyle, but now I seriously love the company. Thank you Laura at White Elm! ❤️

Hi Brianne!
We are so glad you are enjoying your bag! The tear is not common in our bags and must have been loose stitching from a manufacturing defect. We will be sending you a replacement bag tomorrow! Thank you for letting us fix this issue for you!

*Update* I'm glad to hear you're happy with our service Brianne! Thank you so much for updating your review!

This purse is actually quite perfect. Size, quality, color and layout inside. It is well thought out. Couldn't be happier.

Amazing products and absolutely amazing customer service!! Only brand I will ever buy!

Perfect Fit

I love that this crossbody has a zip pocket and a second pocket in it. Most crossbody's do not and everything in it is unorganized. This one keeps everything organized! Fits nicely in the Gemini as well.
