Carezza DaytoNight Clutch
I love this as a clutch with the short hand strap on back, so I never have to worry about dropping my purse. To take care of issues when using the long detachable strap (purse keeps opening), I attach each end of the strap to an end of one of the zippers. Since they are on opposite sides of the purse, and don't pull on the flap, it works perfectly! It also makes for easy to opening of the zipped compartments. If the strap connector under the flap extended to the edge, perhaps that would also take care of the problem. Maybe that's a change Levenger could make in the future.

Good Quality -- but purse comes open often
The purse is very good quality and if the shoulder strap worked better this would have been a 5 star product. As other reviewers had noted, even with minimal stuff in the purse, when I wear it over my shoulder, it always comes open. I tried various 'fixes' but the strap is attached so far inside the flap of the purse, that it pulls awkwardly on the sides of the top flap and eventually pops the purse open.

Fatal design flaw
I received this as a gift. The leather, quality and look of the bag are very attractive. However, there is a major functional design flaw as the strap locations pop open the purse flap when its on your shoulder. This happens even when there is almost nothing inside the bag. The bag does fit an ipad mini - though starts to get a bit tight adding much beyond a slim wallet.

Loved It But Had to Send It Back
This purse was lovely - so soft and I liked the color. Unfortunately, it has a big design defect. The strap is attached under the flap that then closes with a snap. The strap pulls the snap open continuously and the bag would not stay closed. Sadly, I had to send it back.

This purse is just the right size for me, and the interior compartment will hold my wallet and a small calendar and a cell phone. The outer compartment is convenient for small items such as keys. The attachments for the strap sit a couple of inches inside the flap, and I have to make sure the strap is completely flat across the flap or the purse will come unsnapped. It is a minor issue, and I have learned to adapt to it. Over all, I really like it.

Very Nice Addition to the Carezza Line
It really is soft and just the right size for going from day to night or just slipping into a tote. I have the tote bag, too. I do wish the strap was a little shorter but I just made a knot in the top of it to shortened it up.
