I chose The Cricket in Time Square obviously because of the lime green stripe on the bag (maybe not too obviously!) This purse is a black and white wonder with a bold cricket stripe in lime.

The bottom and straps are made of a woven wool. The rest of the exterior is of heavy designer cotton. This chic little number is a lightweight bag so your arm is not burdened down while shopping and looking chic. I did use iron-on interfacing on the entire bag to give it some form and stiffness. The front and the back are identical.

The inside is constructed of a pale lime green polyester that feels and looks like silk. It is roomy and bright. There is a magnetic closure to keep your goodies safe and sound.

Inside there are two pockets just the right size for a cell phone, checkbook or sunglasses.

This purse measures 17" across the top, 11" across the bottom, 10" tall and 3 3/4" wide. The straps are 19 1/2" long.

Did you notice the care and concern I took in matching up the black and white stripes? Inside and out they all line up. (Makes my mama proud). I also did the top stitching by color so there is always matching thread on fabric. :o)

Just a great purse for your matchy matchy days of black and white.
