There are times when I just can’t help myself – I absolutely have to share a handbag with you. That is definitely the case with the Alexander McQueen Skull Clutch. This is one of those handbags that just jumped out at me for so many reasons. First of all, it’s not very often that you see the word “skull” in a handbag name. As I looked at the clutch a bit, I noticed the reason for the name of it; there is in fact a jeweled skull closure. For some reason, I kind of like that addition. I think it is a bit edgy and without a doubt different.

Now, the clutch itself has an iridescent frame and leather lining. I mentioned last week on Purse Blog Savvy when I wrote about the Marc Jacobs Satin Rad Bag that I am a huge fan of non-traditional holiday colors during the holiday season. This clutch would fit into that category. Here is my main concern though, would your fingerprints show on this clutch? I am a little worried that after a night’s use, the clutch would resemble a glass coffee table in a house where a small child is learning to walk – fingerprints galore. What do you think? The price is a bit steep too. Megs covered the same McQueen Skull Clutch in different colors and a tad cheaper a while back. But if you want to add something spunky to your wardrobe, buy through Saks for $1,670.

    A tad cheaper? It’s a full 50% and more price hike from last year’s price!!!
