New Year’s Eve is the night you can unapologetically pretend you’re a princess, or Madonna, or whatever your sparkly fantasy may be. Evening bags in metallics, sequins, studs, mesh, lace, they’re all fair game on New Year’s Eve. Even if you wear the most boring, I mean classic, little black dress, be sure to carry a jewel of a clutch. These 12 evening bags all cost under $50. Price is important if you’re only brandishing the sparkly bag once a year.
The Lizzie FortunatoSpring/Summer 2013 look book is out. There are lots of cabochon pieces which I like when incorporated with the textiles. I also love the more free-spirited designs and the chunky, faceted gems. My favorites below.
I heart this clutch. It could be yours, for free. Poor me, I’ll have to buy it.
It’s from StefaniBags.com,a site with a great collection of the best boutique handbag brands, including Hayden-Harnett, Foley + Corinna, Botkier, Kooba, Jalda, and Matt & Nat. Owner Monica Prestia, whom I e-met through my work with Store Adore, has offered to give away one FREE Matt & Nat Takumi Clutch (regularly priced at $245) to a random Style Carrot reader who signs up for the Stefanibags.com newsletter.
The Takumi Clutchis part of Matt & Nat’s new Japanese Paper Collection. It’s grey (my favorite color for clothing; blah but true), vegan, with tone on tone stitching, 100% recycled grey faux suede lining, antique brass and copper hardware, and Matt & Nat logo bar. There’s a front zipper closure and an open pocket on the back, and the interior has a zip pocket and cell phone and PDA pockets. There are two hand held straps, plus a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap. Pretty much perfect, right?
