According to one of my college graphics professors, blue is the favorite color of an overwhelming majority of Americans. Before dropping this tidbit of knowledge on us, she demonstrated her point by going around he room and asking each of us, one by one, what our favorite color was. Every single person said blue. Except me. I said red. I like being contrary. But if I’m the only holdout, then the designers at Alexander McQueen chose very wisely when designing their Crystal-Print Clutch. It contains blues of every type in its retro-modern silk print, and it would look sophisticated against a monotone dress in any number of shades.

The one thing that’s tripping me up, though, is the bag’s price point versus its construction. The price IS very reasonable for a McQueen bag of any type – I don’t think I’ve ever seen another one this far below the thousand-dollar cutoff (if I’ve ever seen one below a grand at all, come to think of it). But the clutch itself probably isn’t work upwards of $500 – its construction is very simple and kind of flimsy-looking, even if the print is nice. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $540.

    It’s ok (nice print). I’m not thrilled by it, and it’s only printed fabric, so I would hope that they wouldn’t charge a thousand dollars for it.

    It’s very pretty, I like the idea of doing a crystal print. That’s probably why its blue. But no, its probably not worth $540. I would have said red too. : )
