Time for a moment of honesty – I have nowhere to wear the Nordstrom Ruffle Chiffon Frame Clutch. My days of prom-going are long gone (thankfully), and I’m not cool enough to get invited to movie premieres or charity balls. My friends don’t have enough money or maturity to throw cocktail parties. I go out a lot, but I live in a college town, and it’s best not to bring anything to those bars that you don’t mind spilling some Jagermeister on. It’s a good rule of thumb around here.
If you, unlike me, have someplace to wear a delicate, ladylike bag but your budget is tight, then the Nordstrom Ruffle Chiffon Frame Clutch might be perfect for you. It’s a little ridiculous, sure, but if you can’t carry a tiny, tacky bag occasionally, then what has the world come to? The clear plastic bow closure kind of reminds me of Lady Gaga (bow hair, remember?), and this sort of seems like something that would be right up her alley. I genuinely love the color, though. Deep, scarlet-y red is so glamorous and retro in a clutch like this that I can’t help but wish that I had a reason to have this bag. Buy through Nordstrom for $78.
