A clutch from a great designer for a cheap price does not necessary mean wonderful. Look at this Bow Bag Clutch from Marc by Marc Jacobs and you will understand. This silver metallic leather clutch alone is okay but looks awful in the net overlay. Perhaps, the bag should be renamed as “Clutch in a Net” to attract some attention. Also, the two zipped compartments are so tiny that you can hardly hold anything inside. $250 is a great price for a Marc by Marc Jacobs purse, but not on this one! Retails at Net-A-Porter.
It does look like a L.A.M.B. clutch, doesn’t it? But when you take a closer look at it, you’ll see the check pattern is finished with black and gold metallic leather instead of the L.A.M.B’s black and white pattern. This pretty thing is the Wristlet intrecciato clutch from Marc by Marc Jacobs. The purse has top zip closure, signature lock detail and a leather wrist strap. Measuring 8.5″ x 6.5″ x 1″, the Marc by Marc Jacobs bag is perfect for evening. It looks nice with the black dress and shoes shown above, but you can also pair this purse with jeans for a more casual look! Available at Net-A-Porter for $260. Have a great weekend, everyone and enjoy the Olympic Games!
My best friend, Angel, gave me a task to do today. She asked me to look for a beautiful yet affordable clutch for her. While I was browsing from one brand to another, I finally found the Newbury Clutch from Michael Kors. I believe she will LOVE this purse! What this clutch appeals to me is the simple design and the gold color. The shiny color in the snake-embossed metallic leather is really eye-catching! Other features include a Michael Kors logo plate and a magnetic snap closure at front flap. Interior is lined with a patch pocket. Dimensions: 5.5″H x 11″W x 1.5″D. Pre-order at Michael Kors website for less than $200. Do you think this is a pretty clutch at a reasonable price?
When you look at this Anya Hindmarch Broken Mirror Clutch, what do you see? I can see gorgeous and elegance. This Anya clutch is very adorable and I think every woman should have at least one of shiny clutches for dinner or a party. A lady in a black dress, carrying this bag, can definitely catch people’s attention. Available for pre-order at Saks, this eye-catching purse is made of metallic Italian calfskin and finished with silver stones. When you open the clutch with its kiss lock, you can find an open pocket and natural suede lining. The beautiful purse retails for $390.
Is Christmas coming earlier this year? I don’t know how you feel about this Valentino Bow Clutch…but I really don’t like it at all. Let’s look at the pictures above! Do they look very similar to you? The left one is the Valentino Bow clutch and the one on the right is a Christmas bow I found on Google 🙂 The Valentino satin clutch comes in red, pink and black. I am okay with the black one, but the red one looks weird to me. The other two problems I have with this clutch are the top zipper and the shoulder strap. I don’t know if there is any other way to secure this clutch, but zipper is definitely not a good choice. I wonder what personal items the bow clutch can hold! I bet you would probably ask what happen to the Valentino brand when you see this clutch with the shoulder strap on! Go see for yourself. The clutch costs $1095 and pre-order at Bergdorf Goodman. I am not sure whether the clutch will get any fans, but I would suggest to start selling this clutch during Christmas time!
The Poll I started about two weeks ago, “What is your most favorite designer brand?”, showed that most of the Handbaggers are big fans of Louis Vuitton. So let me introduce to you today the Louis Vuitton Monogram Motard Beforedark & Louis Vuitton Monogram Motard Afterdark.
Both bags are designed by Richard Prince again! Let’s have a round of applause to Richard for his wonderful work! The Beforedark bag on the left has a detachable chain strap with a size of 13.2″ x 7.1″ x 4.7″. You can carry it on your shoulder or as a hand-held. And the Afterdark clutch on the right is smaller with the dimension of only 3.1″ x 7.3″ x 9″ and it also comes in poudre color. Both clutches are made in monogram motard leather with flap closure and golden hardware. I think both bags are great for evening or dinner. But I prefer the Afterdark because of its smaller size, plus I don’t really like the chain strap on the Beforedark. Sorry! Avaliable at Louis Vuitton.
“Delicious” is the word I will use to describe the Kooba Bennie Clutch. Don’t you think it looks like a piece of cake? This Kooba clutch has a front flap with magnetic snap closure and its inside is lined with zip pocket. The soft cream leather combines with pink, yellow and blue neon piping creates a playful look. It would be a nice casual bag for weekends or party. 5.25″H x 12″L x 1.5″D. Also comes in black color and available at Neiman Marcus for only $295! Nice deal! 😉
If you are a big fan of Prada, you probably would not have missed the Prada Degrade Patent Clutch. Even if you are not a Prada lover, this bag should have caught your attention. Three reasons to love this clutch: bright gradient color, big clutch and patent. There is also magnetic button closure and cream topstitching. As I said, this clutch is little big with a size of 5.3″L x 12.6″W x 1.4″D. Whether the price of $950 is reasonable? You be the judge! Various colors are available and pre-order at Neiman Marcus.
This Prada clutch has a similar version for the Fall collection with its fancy name “Vernice Sfumata Clutch“. The pattern leather, size and price remain the same but Rosso-Argento will be the new gradient color. Check it out at Saks.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Did you get your “green” bag yet? The green Marc Jacobs Canvas Tote I told you yesterday would be a good choice. If you are looking for something a little more stylist and elegant, you may consider the L.A.M.B. Glazed Love Treviso Clutch! This glazed leather clutch has circular leather handles, double L-embossed leather trim, polished gold metal hardware, magnetic clousre and inside leather trimmed zip pocket. You can carry the bag folded or long. Also come in black. $525 retails at eLuxury.
The Louis Vuitton Montaigne Clutch is made from Epi leather with smooth leather trim. Even without a monogram, Louis Vuitton Montaigne Clutch is still a wonderful choice because of its hardiness and design. This bag is really cute! It comes in a variety of color, black, ivory, purple, pink. Although purple is more classy, I would go for the pink one! The flat leather strap is adjustable and removable, so you can wear it both on your shoulder or your wrist. You can even remove all straps and carry it as a clutch. Other features include flap top with a push lock closure, fine textile lining and inside patch pocket. Purchase this bag for $805 at eLuxury or Vote for it.
