When it comes to purses, I love Ted Baker purses. They have so many pretty designs, and they frequently have great discount codes on their website so you can often get an amazing deal. I spotted the Ted Baker Bailiey Glitter Teardrop Leather Matinee Purse in their ‘new in’ section on their website, and I knew I had to buy it as it looked like my dream purse.
Ted Baker Bailiey Glitter Teardrop Leather Matinee Purse
My last purse was the Ted Baker Carlon Metallic Leather Matinee Purse, and it was the prettiest purse I’d ever owned (you can see it right here). It was a stunning ‘shimmering metallic’ blue leather purse, which had chunk rose gold clasps with crystals inset into each clasp. It was honestly the most beautiful purse, but I was really disappointed by it as the metallic, almost foil effect began to rub off within a matter of weeks.
It was clear that the blue shimmery effect was layered onto black leather, and the purse quickly looked very tired and old, and to be honest I was gutted. You don’t want to spend £100 on a purse, for it to look ruined in only a few weeks. I did contact their customer services team as I bought it online, and they weren’t very helpful at all which left a bitter taste in my mouth in all honesty.
“Add some sparkle to your spending with our BAILIEY purse. Made in leather with a fun glitter effect,there’s plenty of space for cards, coins and notes – the details matter with this one, as it’s completed with a teardrop bobble fastening for a shining final edge.“
I have a few Ted Baker bags, and have had multiple Ted Baker purses, and I’ve never been disappointed by any of them, so I didn’t want my bad experience of the Carlon Matinee Purse to put me off trying other Ted Baker purses, and decided to buy the Ted Baker Bailiey Glitter Teardrop Leather Matinee Purse whilst it had a 30% discount, and I am so glad I did!
The Ted Baker Bailiey Glitter Teardrop Leather Matinee Purse is £89 on the Ted Baker website, and I imagine they’ll have a really great Black Friday deal on, so I’d recommend bookmarking their website if you like the look of anything right now, to ensure you get a discount. I personally like large purses as I have a tonne of loyalty cards, and I just prefer them over mini purses.
This large size of purse is called the Matinee by Ted Baker, but they also have this same design in a smaller, more compact design which is called the Ted Baker Becckaa Glitter Small Purse which is £49. It’s all down to personal preference, but I don’t like their small purses, and much prefer the Matinee collection.
The Ted Baker Bailiey Glitter Teardrop Leather Matinee Purse has an amazing rose gold glitter effect coating the leather. From the photos on their website, I couldn’t work out if the glitter was a coated glitter, or a rough glitter which is one of the reasons I decided to review the purse, incase anyone else was trying to find out as Ted Baker don’t make any mention of it anywhere at all.
It is not a coated glitter which is a little disappointing. It does feel rough and textured, and annoyingly, the glitter particles do transfer to the hands during use. You don’t get lots of glitter transfer, but it happens everytime I use it and you end up with glitter on your clothes and your face.
Luckily, the glitter pieces are extremely small, but I really wish they’d coated the glitter like the Kate Spade glitter purses / wallets. It would make the purse a lot more durable, and would prevent the glitter transfer. I do wonder if the glitter transfer will leave the purse looking a little tired quite quickly, so I will update this post in a couple of months but I wanted to post this post on the Ted Baker Bailiey Glitter Teardrop Leather Matinee Purse now, as it’s part of the Ted Baker Christmas 2020 collection, and won’t be around for long.

The Ted Baker Bailiey Glitter Teardrop Leather Matinee Purse has two teardrop shaped, rose gold metal clasps to open the coin section, and each teardrop features a teardrop crystal which looks stunning, and really catches the light. The inside of the purse is lined with rose gold, metallic leather with a cream Ted Baker branded satin inside the coin section.
Inside the Ted Baker Bailiey Glitter Teardrop Leather Matinee Purse, there are spaces for ten cards and a photo ID card or driving licence. I love how roomy the Ted Baker Matinee Purses are, there’s room for coins, cards, receipts and there’s even a zipped compartment on the back of the purse. I love this Ted Baker Bailiey Glitter Teardrop Leather Matinee Purse, as it’s truly beautiful but I just wish the glitter didn’t transfer, otherwise it would be my perfect purse.
