J.Crew Quilted mini purse in Trellis Vine review + photos

            Lately I've been in the mood to accessorize. Maybe it's the summer heat, or maybe it's the fact that I have a 'winter' complexion that doesn't work as well with traditionally warm summer tones; I've been keeping a simpler beauty routine and been on the hunt for accessories and accoutrements instead! 

           When it comes to purses, I'm always fond of items that come in color! As someone with a profoundly neutral taste in clothes, I find brightly hued bags to be quite complimentary to my style. My latest find is the J.Crew Quilted mini purse in Trellis Vine. (I was lucky to find this at a nice discount too!) I'm really looking forward to adding this gorgeous garden green to my summer rotation!
Love the gold chain on this J.Crew mini purse! I've been favoring small gold details this summer...
        The J.Crew Quilted mini purse is constructed from soft quilted leather. Trellis Vine a dark green with just a hint of blue (I'm thinking it's a little less blue than in my in-the-shade photos here. It's more standard green in sunlight). The clasp detail is a hinge; it does seem like metal that can be scratched easily, so I'll be keeping that in mind. Inside, there's a zip pocket, pouch pockets, and of course the standard J.Crew plaque label.

        I love how the chain can be tucked inside; being able to convert to a clutch format is something I prefer in a little purse. Overall, I'm pleased with the quality (so far) for the price I purchased it at. It can be tough to find a for-fun find at a quality to cost balance! I haven't had the chance to road test this item, so I can't comment on durability - I love J.Crew, but their items can be variable in that regard!

            Overall, I've been loving garden greens lately, so my J.Crew Quilted mini purse in Trellis Vine was a fabulous find! I'm thinking it's a shade that should wear nicely from summer to fall. (Plus, I've been in the mood to collect clutches lately, so all the better!)

          Thanks for reading! What pretty purses have you picked out this summer? Are you into colors or neutrals? Have you found anything fun at J.Crew recently?

Love, Dovey.


  1. Love the pop of colour against clean summer whites. :)

    I'm kind of in love with J Crew sandals - those low heeled wedge ones with the ankle straps. I have my eye on the nude patent!

  2. Love the color! It will transition well from summer to fall :)

  3. Awwww...this is so pretty. I super like the color and the texture as well. Great choice indeed!
