Beautiful purse. Yes its larger than expected but I have to admit it looks like I will be able to find everything. Have to give it one star off for such a fiddly lock. I fought with this a bit too. I had latched it and then could not get it open. I tried using the little key but it didn't seem to do much. After fiddling with it a bit and trying the key turning it to different directions I got it open. Two things, it seems the "unlocked" position for the little lock portion is when the line is in a vertical position. The little key lock on it will look like an "H". Second, its not intuitive but you have to slide the whole round portion down in order to open it. It looks like a push button but its not, it actually is a slide lock. Hope this helps someone.
