Party clutches have always seemed like a waste of money. They look great, but are so expensive for the size. $143 for a stiff, shiny box? Really?
If you're in the market for a new everyday bag (assuming you want a bag and not a suitcase), try one with a little sparkle. It will add interest to your outfits, and you can keep using it for evening events. Bourne's "Jennifer" convertible clutch has actual depth to it (take that envelope clutches!), has a strap option, is made of real leather and is nicely trimmed in a reptile print. It's currently $83 on Endless, half off the original price.
geometric gold wallet, now on sale for $19.99 at Macy's, could hold all your goodies during the day with room for lipstick and keys at night.
