When it comes to buying accessories, beaded evening bags can be some of the most criminally overpriced options on the market. Sure, there are a few brands out there who take the time to hand-set their crystals into some amazing patterns in order to create tiny works of handbag art, but mostly what you see are bags that are machine-made and marked up because consumers expect to pay for sparkle. With an inventive option like the Tasha Mesh-Covered Sequin Evening Bag, though, you won’t have to break the bank for a formal event.
The cool thing about this bag is that even though the sparkle comes from sequins instead of rhinestones, the tonal mesh overlay prevents the bag from getting that overly sequined look, which can sometimes read as cheap. In fact, the neat little rows that the mesh creates mimic the look of rhinestones quite well.
From a distance, I wouldn’t have guessed that this clutch isn’t beaded or dotted with rhinestones. The mesh-on-sequins construction not only elevates the look, but I suspect that it’ll make the clutch a lot more durable for use of events since the sequins won’t have a chance to get snagged. If you don’t find yourself going to formal parties often, this is a good, inexpensive clutch to have in your closet that will be usable and look new for a long time. Buy through Nordstrom for $78.
