Alexander McQueen Red Skull Box Clutch

I think I’m in love.

The Alexander McQueen Red Skull Box Clutch has me in its grips and is showing no signs of relenting. The red Bottega Veneta Knot Clutch that Leighton Meester wore to the Emmys got me thinking about little scarlet bags, and it took me about an hour of Internet-wandering to find one that spoke to me. But this one doesn’t just speak – it whispers sweet nothings in my ear and tells me how nice my hair looks today (also important to note: this clutch is a liar, I’m in bad need of a shower).

With the advent of fall, Halloween isn’t far behind, and I feel more comfortable indulging the dark side of my personal style during that this time of year than in, say, April. The red-on-red beading on this clutch recalls (purposefully, I’m sure) artfully spattered blood (have I been watching too many Dexter reruns, or has McQueen?) and the signature skull clasp is the veritable cherry on top of this truly macabre clutch. If I get that long-awaited Oscars invite (it’s coming this year, I know it!), this little bag is absolutely what I’m carrying. Buy through Zappos for $1399.

    Ehm, imo, this bag is missing Stephen Webster’s finishing touch.

    Not jewelled enough, just needs that last dazzling bling stuff. :)
