Jessica McClintock Fashion Minaudiere | Pleated Black Satin Purse with Rhinestone Flower

Coach Madison Gathered Leather Wallet | Black Accordion Style Zip Purse

Coach Madison Gathered Leather Wallet | Black Accordion Style Zip Purse

Chinese Laundry Braid Clutch | Budget White Synthetic Pleated Purse
