I can’t help it. I’m in love with the color of the Lauren Merkin Lucy Glossy Croc Clutch. It’s just teal enough to be eye-catching without being bright and obnoxious. It would go with a variety of neutrals and brights and either stand on its own or blend in a bit. I’ll even forgive the fake stamped croc.
I’m really not much for non-exotic exotics, but in tiny clutch form, their sins are less apparent. The bigger the bag, the more likely it is to look plastic-y and cheap, but when you shrink it down to miniature size, the effect is similarly lessened. Which bodes well for this particular bag – Merkin often makes two sizes of her signature clutch shapes, and this is the smaller size of this particular design.
The more I contemplate this color, the better it gets. It’s dark enough to wear with dark winter neutrals and not too dark to wear with the lighter colors of summer. I can see this with both charcoal grey and bright white, and few colors are really versatile enough to do double duty, no matter how much we try to convince ourselves that they are. This, however, is the real deal. Buy through Luna Boston for $250.
