Accessorize Mini Bow Purse
Advantages: Decent size
For my birthday this year I received several little gifts from my older nieces which I thought was incredibly thoughtful. I normally have homemade gifts which of course I keep but this year as they are now slightly older I received store bought gifts and they were given strict instructions by my brother that they had a certain budget of £5 each to spend (there are 2 of them). Whatever my nieces buy me I know it has been influenced by my sister in law and she generally has very good taste!
I had no idea what my nieces had bought me but when I was presented with a very small Accessorize gift bag my eyes lit up and I was eager to unwrap the carefully wrapped package which was of course wrapped in lovely tissue paper and sealed with a large Accessorize sticker. Upon opening it I found that it was a small coin purse which from looking at the website is known as the Mini Bow Zip Top coin purse which comes in a deep teal colour.
I am normally a large purse kinda girl if you hadn't guessed by my previous two reviews on large purses! But I was incredibly pleased with my gift kindly picked out by my one niece who thought it would suit me! Accessorize if you don't know is a wonderful store nationwide which is filled to the brim with accessories, handbags, purses, jewellery and is a very lovely store. I have always found there prices to be quite reasonable and finding out that this purse was £5.00 I thought it was a very good buy.
The purse itself is only 13cm (L) by 9cm (W) so is quite small compared to my other purses but it is the ideal size for carrying any loose change or any change for a specific reason separate from your main purse. Because of its size it also fits easily into any size handbag. I now use mine for when I go out on an evening as I did find taking my large purse a bit too bulky and cumbersome and when I am only wanting to take my debit card and a some loose change this is generally ideal, it will even fit in a lip gloss or two!
The bag itself is made from 100% polyurethane so is pretty durable but it also easy to keep clean as you can simply wipe the purse over with a damp cloth should it become a little grubby. The main decoration on this purse is on the front which features two grey ribbed edges together with a sweet little bow in the middle, the bow is grey in colour and has a slight patent effect. The purse has the same grey binding around the edge which gives the purse a bit of structure and support not to mention helps keep the purse together.
The purse has a simple zip at the top which is colour co-ordinated with the purse and inside there is the very simple teal polyester lining which suits the purse nicely. On the inside there is no inside pocket or anything like that, it is simply the purse where you can easily store a few cards and your change. But then that is simply what a coin purse is supposed to do, incredibly simple but effective and I cannot complain about this purse whatsoever.
I have used this purse on quite a few occasions now and it can always carry exactly what I need it to and a little bit more! I'm not one for coin purses normally but now I have one (and may have bought a few more since!) I have now realised how incredibly useful they are and this one is incredibly cute, has a nice simple design and has come in very useful. No complaints from me whatsoever. For a very reasonable price of £5 this is definitely worthy of a purchase! 5 stars from me!

Summary: A sweet coin purse which will easily take a few cards and loose change
