I saw this clutch at Neiman Marcus a week or two ago, and I’ve been searching all over for the picture online. It finally showed up on shopbop, so I want to share this gorgeous clutch with you all. Lauren Merkin is a fantastic brand, and I love not only the prices, but the numerous incarnations of handbags in a handful of basic adorable shapes. The Charlotte is a fantastic clutch. The shape is wonderful – cute and round with a lovely flap and just the right amount of feminine ruching. The shape itself has been around for a couple seasons now, but this is my favorite version yet. The patent is surprisingly luxurious, with a real pliable softness in its texture. When you look at it closely, there is a grain to the patent that deepens the color and adds richness. The color in person is really quite stunning, and on a little bag, it makes for a perfectly balanced statement piece. You can carry it day and night, and all for a measly $220 at shopbop.
