If you are in search of a unique evening bag for your holiday and New Years celebrations consider the Lanvin Aumoniere satin pochette ($750 at Net-a-Porter). This adorable petite bag has a very vintage inspired look to it. This bag could have been your grandmother’s and looks just as modern today as it might have fifty years ago. Translated as “little pocket” the Lanvin Aumoniere is made of classic black satin and features satin drawstring handles which gather up to close the bag. There is also an optional gold-tone metal chain strap which I think detracts from the elegant simplicity for of the Lanvin Aumoniere satin pochette. Inside you’ll find a small pouch pocket with just enough space for keeping your keys and cel phone in place. The expandable sack-like shape of this bag, although small is perfect for toting your evening essentials as you welcome in 2010!
In addition to the charming functionality of this pouch handbag the fuchsia fabric flower embellishment adds a dash of fashionista style. Rather than carrying an all black evening bag consider the Lanvin Aumoniere satin pochette for this reason alone. Perhaps pair your perfect LBD with this bag and a ginormous cocktail ring infused with some fuchsia toned baubles. To maintain a powerful statement look dress in all black and from head to toe. Keep it elegant with a perfectly proportioned tuxedo suit, cocktail dress or floor length gown. One benefit of the dual satin strap handle is that it can be worn around your wrist as you toast your glass of bubbly to ring in the New Year.
