Nice small bag. I might not consider it an evening bag as the fabric is laminated (coated with plastic) so does not look as dressy as I would think an evening bag should be. Overall a decent small handbag that can be worn as a crossover as well.
I only recently learned of Gigi Hill handbags, and am sorry they're no longer being made. That said, I've received some great deals on the remaining stock, this one ("The Lauren") included. I chose the floral pattern, "Enchanted," which I just love. The bag may be billed as an evening bag, but I've been using it every time I want a small purse for every day. All my "junk" fits inside, but the bag itself is not huge or bulky. I get compliments every time I use it. Highly recommended!
I ordered this bag because I wanted a small evening bag to take to a wedding. It was just perfect for this occasion. I have always loved the Gigi Hill fabrics and designs and am drawn to the black and white designs which are very striking. I was also pleased that this size bag came with two different strap length options.
I wouldn't really consider this an evening bag. I use it for every day....dash and go. Depending on the pattern, you could dress it up or down. I like the NOIR because I can use it as a casual evening bag or not. With a "Little Black Dress" or dressy pants, it could serve quite well as an evening bag.
