J. Tiras has created an eye-catching purse that doesn't cost the earth with the Sophie.
The Sophie's design is classic, with a voluminous body and structured framed top. From this traditional base J. Tiras adds the details that really impress. The lizard embossing gives the pearl-hued leather a luxurious finish. It's an unusual exotic skin to replicate, but the delicate scales are perfect for this dainty clutch purse. Anything bolder would have seemed too much.
The framed top is decorated with a row of semi-precious stones. The bright red and green gems pop delightfully against the ivory leather.
The Sophie is small, but well designed with a zippered inner pocket and leatherette lining. Fashion snobs would prefer real leather inside, but that would have driven the price sky high. Personally I think the compromise is worth it. We get real leather where it counts, and the illusion of luxury tucked away.
It's disappointing that the chain strap isn't removable though. While I appreciate the hands-free carrying option, it's unfortunate that it clutters the already small interior when it's not in use.
Without all the Swarovski crystals that usually cover J. Tiras' designs, we see the Sophie priced at an affordable $144. That's not a lot of money to spend on such a head-turning evening purse.
