Versace Croc-Stamped Clutch in purpleAnd now, in “Things That Cost Way More Than is Reasonable” news, we have the Versace Croc-Stamped Clutch. Is it an actual exotic? No, no, it’s stamped. So it’s regular leather like every other bag you own. Hmm. Well, is it big? No, it’s a clutch. A clutch-sized clutch. Ok. Well is the design really interesting or innovative? No, it’s just a regular pleated leather bag with a standard chain strap like most clutches have. It’s got a metal handle, but I’m not thrilled. And I’m not saying I don’t like it – I do! It’s cute! It’s couple-hundred-bucks cute, though. And when has Versace priced anything but a t-shirt in the couple-hundred-bucks price range? Certainly not a bag. And this bag, my dear bag friends, started out at a whopping two grand. Even thinking about is giving me a headache like you wouldn’t believe. Thankfully, the reasonable folks at eLuxury have had the good sense to knock about $800 off the starting price, but still. That’s $1200 for a completely unspectacular clutch (and the leather looks a little fake-y. Just sayin’). We all pay exorbitant prices for our bags, but this might border on insulting. Buy through eLuxury for $1239.

    Looks like a bag I could pick up at TJ Maxx for 1/100th of the price

    Yeah, it doesn’t look like an expensive bag, even in its well lighted photos! What is it going to look like in person? I wouldn’t pay 2 grand to get a cheap looking bag.

    Almost everything seems to retail at over 3 times what it should do, these days.

    This should have been about $600, originally, IMO (at most).

    They’re, obviously, grossly overpricing everything so they can then slash prices by 70%+ and make people think they’re getting some sort of an enormous bargain; when it’s just the price the item should have been to begin with!

    They must think we’re all a bunch of idiots! LOL! :D
