I really, really want to like the DKNY Stamped Leather Clutch, but I think the embossed croc pattern is bothering me too much to embrace all of the positives of its design.
Obviously, the color is amazing. Totally gorgeous, totally appropriate for a variety of seasons, would look equally great with a sundress or a dark wool shift. But…the embossing? It makes the whole thing look a bit cheap. The clutch is leather, but the finish is so plastic-y that I’m not sure that it would be apparent in person that this was made from a material that occurs in nature. I give DKNY an A for effort and idea (and price), but a C for execution. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $185.
