I wish I wasn’t so scared of white handbags. Ok, well, I am not scared of them per say, but I am terrified about how quickly they can become dirty. Even a little more terrifying than a white handbag – a white clutch. With a white clutch, as you know, you have to carry it in your hand. This has me concerned. I am not some filthy person, but I am a little clumsy. I can see myself forgetting that I just finished reading the newspaper (yes, I still read real newspapers) reach for the white clutch and voila – filth. However, if I can get past my fear, this particular Jimmy Choo clutch would have to be mine.

I absolutely fell in love with the Jimmy Choo Zulu Butterfly Leather Clutch. At first glance the clutch might appear a bit simplistic, but upon further review you can see that there is in fact quite a bit of detail that went into it. The white leather has a bit of pleating and gorgeous studded butterfly with snake-effect insert details. There is a zip-fastening top with a zip pull and satin lining. At 12″ x 7″ this clutch does borderline on oversized and it works. I could see myself grabbing this as I run out for lunch or even a night on the town. It is so whimsical! Now, if I can just let go of my fear. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $795.

    I like the bag, the design is really classy! As for keeping it clean, see if there is a spray of sorts you can put over it to keep it from getting dirty. When storing it, keep it in its garment bag. Enjoy! ;-)

  • LDJ

    No…I don’t care 4 it. I pass.

  • LaToya

    Just fell in love with it too! Jimmy Choo kinds rocks lately

  • Jane

    I love this clutch and the clever way they created the butterfly. I agree with you about white bags. I would destroy it in minutes I know I would.

    Let it go. I thought the same thing when I bought my vanilla Michael Kors Uptown Astor. I have two sons that play football, and we are always on the run and eating on the fly. I’m also a first grade teacher.
    However, I could not pass it up. I wore it for two months (a record for me) straight without one stain. Trust me I am HARD on my handbags. I don’t have time to baby them. So, I think for a clutch that you are not wearing everyday, you should be safe. Come on. Take a risk.

    It’s so pretty! I can see why you’re so tempted. I too love white bags but they really are a PITA to keep clean. However, you wouldn’t exactly be wearing this everyday right, so maaybe you might be ok!

    It reminds me of something Mariah Carey would sport

  • Rosanna

    The stud idea is cute, but I’m not a fan of the butterfly detail on the clutch. (fb)

  • Chi

    I totally agree on the white clutches .. that is why I don’t even own a white handbag .. just the thought of it getting dirty scares me ..

    As for the clutch .. the concept was good, but the outcome needed some work.


  • Lori

    I love this bag. It’s really feminine and would be great for going out to dinner. I definitely wouldn’t use it as an everyday bag, of course. (fb)

    Wish the butterfly stood out more, but I do love the pleating of the wings. (fb)

  • Jessica

    when i saw the tiny picture of the bag i thought that butterfly was something i would find under a microscope in my biology class.. dont like this bag :(

  • ShaRita Nicole

    i feel that way about everything WHITE!

  • ShaRita Nicole

    tops, bottoms, etc. the butterfly is the icing on the cake… i love it!!!

  • bonybynatur2003

    Shannon, I cannot fault your taste after falling in love with two bags you posted about. I am not a big fan of butterfly’s, or bags with most animals on them, and I actually just posted about not liking the bird on the bag that Megs posted. But…. I would buy this bag in a heartbeat. White and all, I wouldnt think twice. Yes, I might come home every day and hit it with some leather cleaner. But it would be totally worth it. And I dont think the price is unreasonable at all either. (fb)

  • Caroline

  • vishwabodh gautam

    very good design i love thi design ………………………………………

  • April

    This would be great with silver hardware. Gold hardware looks tacky on many Jimmy Choo bags, especially the purple ones.

  • yoyo

    You can get a cheap price and wear the fashion and beautiful shoes out.
