Playboy Coin Purse
Advantages: Well made
Disadvantages: Inpractical and tacky looking
A couple of days ago it was my best friends/flatmates birthday and I had no idea what to get her really but know how much she loves items from the Playboy range. I purchased her a handy shopper bag and an evening bag already but when I spotted this in the Freemans catalogue and costing only £10.00 I couldn't resist buying it for her, particularly when I noticed I could also get a deal on it which allowed me to choose from a vast array of items and get 3 £10.00 items for £20.00!
Personally I feel I a bit too old for this brand at almost 36 years of age although again personally I don't think this should be directed at children because of what it represents however the kids love it and most adults, for that reason won't be seen with it lol. My mate at 33 doesn't feel like that though!
The Purse Itself:
The main of the purse (which is a sort of square shape) is a whitish colour with a shimmery silver hue to it. It has metallic coloured P's and bunny heads on there in pink, silver, gold, green and blue. It is a consatina effect purse so although it looks rather small, neat and compact it does become larger when opening it out.
The back of the purse does up and undos with a zip that has a small silver leather look bit to hold to do so with an ingrained bunny head on it. In there there are two sections to put say coins. The compartments are quite deep and silver satin lined so soft. To the front of the purse you get 2 spaces to pop credit/stores cards etc into and then the other side a see-through plastic section to pop in a rail card/bus pass or whatever and then behind that and there is a long space that goes width ways across the purse so that you can store whatever you want to in it, though don't overfill it as stuff will fall out! That front section can then be secured by a silver sequined section that comes over from the card holding section to the front of the purse to hold it all together and to secure it up. That sequin section is neat and tidy and does add a bit of glam to the purse as well as security.
For me this purse is too small for everyday use and too big for taking out with me for an evening say as well as looking a bit tacky. I meant the quality of it is superb and I simply can't knock that and my mate adores this purse but on a practical level I think its daft and really not designed for adults! She hasn't got enough room, her notes she pops into the open section of the purse makes them venerable to flying out and getting lost and she has too many cards to store in this and has to faff about before going out anywhere to find what she needs to take with her!
Not a great purse...but Liz loves it and thats the main thing!
Summary: Not for me!
