The first Monday back from a holiday weekend is so, so cruel. It’s like a little reminder of the immutability of life; no matter what we do, the calendar marches on while we cling to our leftover turkey legs and half-eaten pumpkin pies, trying to extend the avarice a bit longer. It’s Monday now, though, which means that it’s time for gluttony of a different kind. A handbag kind.

To make your return to real life as soft and comfortable as possible, we’ve assembled a gallery of the Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 Skull Clutches, which are always so much fun to look at. They don’t taste like stuffing, admittedly, but you probably don’t need another helping of that anyway. (Seriously, though, pass me that pie. I’ll eat it for breakfast.)

    #2 (the lead pic) and #6 make me willing to sacrifice my first born children for them. *drooooooool*

    Holy glittertastic! I like those sparkly ones and the lead pic purse – it’s like gold lace and unicorns and cupcakes!

    Any idea of the prices? Also net-a-porter has this gorgeous McQueen clutch on their glitter ball page but no price on it! Any leads?
