After a year or so of looking at the bracelets and belts I decided they are probably not for me for various reasons - but I love the chunks, so I got the new grey clutch bag yesterday! Very Happy Oh and a single chunk (too broke to get more at the moment) - the pink Paracas. Very Happy

I have been thinking about a bag in preference to a bracelet or sandals so I would like to see more photos on here if possible, please, also thoughts on size/practicality etc. I think it is the clutch that I was considering, also the grey one.

I like the bags themselves a lot but might prefer them with fixed decoration or none at all rather than with the NOOSA poppers. (I do like NOOSA.)

hm...BB, but just the poppers are the nice part of it, at least for me..., I do like NOOSA too, but never wear it...
I have a similar bag now at the moment which needs to be replaced, so I am thinking and thinking what to do now... Very Happy

NOOSA Stuff is not available in Switzerland I believe, I'd love to see and feel first...

NOOSA is catchy. I have to keep my wrist away from my head to stop my hair snagging in the poppers. I don't want to be caught in my bag all the time.

The leather is meant to be very nice and soft. I would be tempted if they were not expensive and hard to get.

Think I would invest in a snakeskin belt and drape it casually around a favorite bag... Very Happy The mid brown clutch would be my favorite if I would need one... however I'm sure they'll do a snakeskin version some day so I'd await that one to tempt me... Wink

I'd go for that too!!!

I will try and post photos asap but am having camera problems. Crying or Very sad Meanwhile here are my impressions:

I ordered my grey clutch last weekend from Rubia in the Netherlands and it arrived very quickly this week. It is very nice, and the chunk is exquisite – it is the first time I have really been able to look closely at Noosa IRL and I am impressed with the quality. Very Happy

The bag is less grey than I expected, more a beige-grey, but having been looking at some of the posts in this section of the Forum, it seems like the (old) "grey" bracelet is really this beige-grey as well (taupe). There is the embossed design on the back of the clutch, which I didn’t expect, but which is lovely. Overall, very good quality. Also quite versatile - there is a long removable strap which you can wear over the body, or double it up and have it as a short-strap bag, which is how I now have it . You can also take the long strap off completely and just have it as a clutch. There is also a separate wrist strap which is removable.

It is pretty small – but no smaller than I expected. I wanted a ratio of lot of chunk to a small amount of bag! The leather is quite soft and distressed looking and I hope will soften and age more with time. It is on the expensive side, but I am very pleased with it. However, the shoppers are probably better value.

Hope that helps Very Happy

You wouldn't believe the problems I am having with cameras and computers at the moment. scratch scratch scratch I have taken a number of shots, but only this one will load for some reason. This is the back of the clutch. I'll try and load more photos later.....

Not looking... not looking. I love it! Looks so soft and the embossing is so pretty!

Aaarggh, there's a store just across the street of the workshop. I must keep myself from going there.

What about a photo showing the items that will fit into this bag to give an idea of how it can be used?

I'll try - but technology seems to be against me this afternoon. It is a small bag - I can fit a large wallet, and large bunch of keys in there but there is not much room for much else.
