During the holidays, bag thoughts often turn to clutches of the fun and sparkly variety, but your average shiny evening bag has its downsides. Rhinestones? They come off. Sequins? They snag. Glitter? Glitter sheds, and once it does, it’s like herpes – you’ll never get rid of it. God forbid you should scratch your nose after holding a glittery clutch, because invariably, a speck of glitter will transfer to your face and you’ll be able to see it out of the corner of your eye for the rest of your natural life. Our suggestion? Get something like the Tasha Textured Metal Clutch and never worry about handbag malfunctions again.
The giant gem closure on the top of this clutch is a little obvious for my taste, but I really like the premise. Metal is durable, it doesn’t stain, and it doesn’t shed, snag or otherwise fall apart in your hands. With etching like what you see above, it can be every bit as shiny and festive as a glittery bag without the hassle and mess. Not to mention that if you plan on drinking on New Year’s Eve, everything in your outfit should be as durable as possible. Buy through Nordstrom for $88.
