Bag update. So I finally got around to trying to my ramona problem solved. I called the manager last week and he said to bring it in so on Sat. I took it in. I don't know if it worked for or against me that the shop was busy but I came in and said I spoke to him on the phone, he looked at the handles and stuff and said 'okay we'll send it to our leather guy and see what he can do' and he said it would take 5-10 working days. I really hope they can fix it though I'm slightly worried what the leather guy will do. Anyway we'll see what happens.

Does anyone know how the patent leather reacts to the temperature changes for example in the winter when it's minus degrees outside, like -20 degree Celsius (-4 degree Fahrenheit) or colder?

I'm asking because I've heard that it could start to crack. Is this true?

Sorry I never reported back that it was a success! Most of the edges have now been repolished in the navy (there were a couple of spots he missed but i didn't notice til later. oh well) and it's looking good. I have yet to wear it since getting it fixed though.

Personally, it would make sense that the patent would start to crack if you left it out in cold weather. I come from a very cold province and have seen patent crack before but only through extreme prolonged exposure. So i wouldn't carry it on a 5 hour hike through the woods but carrying it to/from your car and to work should be fine.

Does anyone have the oversized clutch pictured below? I was considering purchasing it- looks like a practical bag you could carry day or night. I have so many large bags, I thought this might be a good investment. (Do you see all the justifications I am making?!?) Just wondering if anyone had any feedback on its usefulness or attractiveness! TIA!

^I don't have it, but I love it! I was playing with it at bloomies the other day, I love the way it looks with the chain tucked into the bag and carried like a clutch. I really love it. I think big clutches can look so chic.

If it weren't for the other $$ things above it on my wishlist, I'd get it in a second.

Thanks mundo! I totally agree with you about big chic clutches! Since you have seen it IRL, do you think it would work for day as well as night? I was also wondering how the gold "piping" looked in person.

it's quite casual, the leather, although soft in texture, has a sort of worn look, like an old leather jacket even though there is no distressing in it, it's not a dark black, more like a slightly faded black. and the gold is sort of a brushed gold, not blingy at all.

it wouldn't work to a fancy night event, it's not that elegant, but it would be great for a dinner out, bar, the theater, or a simpler party. And since you have the chain, you can throw it on your shoulder when you get sick of holding it or want to dance or whatever.

I'd love it for day too, I just think there is something so polished about a women wiht a casual outfit, great shoes, and carrying a non dinky clutch.

oh, and here's a pic I've had saved for a while...

I've nerver been a fan of the Jimmy Choo bags like the Ramona. They lost me somewhere between the overexposure and the gold hardware. Anyway, I love that clutch posted above! I tried it on at the Jimmy Choo boutique yesterday and it was lovely. I think big cluctches can be chic for night as they're polished yet understated and relaxed.

Just my personal opinion

There is a black Jimmy Choo Ramano going for half price (550 pounds) on catwalktocloset.com right now http://www.catwalktocloset.com/catwa...leathertotenew

It's an authentic website so thats a good deal. I'm not sure it's NEVER been used before (it just says condition: new with dustbag) but still a steal of a deal.
