My week out in LA has been fabulous. I have gotten a chance to meet with some of our favorite Savvy designers and I have to say, I can’t wait to share some information with you, so, stay tuned! While looking around some of the showrooms, I have to say, fringe is still present. And really, if done correctly (cough-Linea Pelle-cough, again stay tuned), fringe is a great addition to a bag. Yet, I am not so sure how I feel about the Jill Stuart Giselle Clutch. The metallic leather clutch has a leather-covered handle bar at the top and is topped off with chain fringe at the bottom. To me, it seems like the fringe doesn’t quite match the feel of the handbag. The leather seems tougher while the fringe seems a tad whimsical. Gunmetal hardware and a couple pocket options definitely pair up for a nice touch. Yet, I am still stuck on if the bag feels complete or not. What do you think? Buy through Shop Bop for $398.

    that subtle, embossed Jill Stuart logo looks a lot like the one used
    on Jil Sander bags…not just because of the similarity between the designers’ names..
