We’ve talked a lot about party bags lately, but the best bet for a party bag is always to find one that you can use for a variety of festivities, not just New Year’s Eve and the odd cocktail party that you may or may not attend a couple times per year. In those instances, it’s better to go with metallic leather than for something silk or covered in beading or crystals because not only will the clutch be more useful for a wider variety of events, but it will also be more durable.
Enter the Elie Tahari Avery Shoulder Bag. I’ve been a big cheerleader for Tahari’s accessory line since its inception, and this cute little bag is yet another piece that makes me glad that the company started making bags.
The textured leather used for this bag gives the impression of glitter without actually using any, which makes it a much wiser wardrobe investment. Not only will the glitter not shed and stick to your hands, but the bag will retain its shine for longer and serve you well through many more events. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $348.
