From what I’ve seen, Judith Leiber clutches will usually do between two and six thousand dollars worth of damage. That’s a lot of scratch for a little sparkly clutch, but they’re extremely precise and often quite unique, so a lot of women love them. But what if you don’t have the type of money to spend on an evening bag you probably won’t use often, but you still want a little bit of glitter in your life? Then you buy the Anya Hindmarch Marano Glitter Clutch.
Sure, it’s not Swarovski-covered, but that comes at a price that not everyone is interested in paying. Instead, this little bag is covered in multicolor glitter that reminds me of the holiday cards we used to make out of construction paper, glue, and sequins during this time of year in elementary school. My only bit of trepidation is that I sincerely hope that this clutch is glazed. Glitter is like the herpes of the accessory world – once it gets on your skin, you’re never going to get rid of it.
But as long as the sparkle stays in place, I think this is a colorful, fun alternative to a more serious holiday clutch. And although I was a bit dubious of the multicolor glitter at first, the more I think about it, the more it seems like a good idea. Not only is it a lot younger-looking than it would be if the materials were simply silver or gold, but it could probably be coordinated with just as many things. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $425.
