I purchased this model thinking my 8-in zippered clutch would slide inside because the dimensions are 8.5" x 9.5"; however, the zipper is set low enough that it won't close over a wallet >7" tall. I live in New Mexico and the leather is dyed much greener than what we consider turquoise here. The leather smelled very strongly of the tanning process. Because the thickness is only 0.5", filling the outside zip pockets crowds the main compartment and vice versa. If you put something with a hard case in an outside zip pocket, the leather molds around the item's corners and starts to attract dirt. It also gets dirt smears if dropped in a larger bag such as a computer bag. The strap length is generous for tall women and it is a fashionable cross body. I ordered it just before a trip and it looks good as long as you use only slim eyeglass and phone cases (and wallet).
