The Alyssia Clutch Shoulder Bag is a part clutch and part shoulder bag, but most of all Alyssia is sure to become your favorite purse. As the name indicates, the shoulder strap can be removed and Alyssia can be carried as a modern styled clutch using the crescent-shaped top handle. But as a shoulder bag, it is roomy enough to be carried during the day. Alyssia will easily accommodate your wallet, keys, and cosmetics, and it’s that kind of unique bag that people will ask you about wherever you go.
Alyssia is 10 1/2″ wide by 6 1/2″ high by 3″ deep.
