5 Golden Clutches

December 17, 2009

[ 5 ]

I’ll say it again, the holidays don’t have to be just red and green.  Or sparkly silver and glittery gold for that matter.  How about dark pewter and matte gold?  Or even yellow?  It’s possible…

images via living etc., and shock the bourgeois


A splash of matte gold or deep yellow will brighten even the darkest winter day. It will do wonders for the simplest outfit without screaming “wrong season”. While I love the idea of a minimalist black ensemble pumped up with a tiny glitzy bag, that look is strictly evening.  For daytime, I love a subdued, conservative look with a larger, bold, bright bag to keep you from looking…subdued and conservative.

Here are 4 golden clutches I would pair with black and grey this winter.  The 5th can be found here – it’s a substitute for clutch #1 below which has an insane price tag.  Perhaps not as decadent but it will save you a whopping $3735.  You read that right.  (Who buys this stuff?!)

In my perfect dream world, I would wear this outfit to dinner on Christmas day and walk in carrying this bag.  Or any one of the below for that matter.  Or maybe I’ll just wear my fancy yoga pants…

Judith Leiber Marguerite $3995, French Connection Satin Cairo Clutch $53 /£24 , Barney’s Gold Gathered Clutch $350, Oversized Multi Stud Clutch £35

By the way, with the price tag and the year-round look, don’t you think bag 4 would make a great gift for your BFF, sister or sister-in-law.   Hint, hint…
