Every year the Renaissance fair came to my town and every year I went and ate the largest pesticide infested pickles, watched live Chess, and gnawed on a turkey leg. One year my class took a field trip to the fair and for extra credit we could dress up; of course I dressed up because what kid does not want a 110% in 3rd grade? To top off my outfit I would have needed a perfect bag to carry my coins etc to barter at the market. Perfectly fitting for that era would be the Oscar de la Renta Gilded Suede Clutch which resembles a bag a dame from the Renaissance era would wear. A bit outdated for my taste with its black gathered suede, gold-tone beaded front, and framed top, yet still elegant. Available through Bergdorf Goodman for $995.
