Suffice it to say that I look at a lot of handbags. It’s kind of my job, and I’m lucky that way. And even with the enormous number of bags that I see, the Celestina Abalone Box Clutch has to be the best summer clutch I’ve seen in a while, and maybe ever. The exterior sides are encrusted with triangle-shaped pieces of abalone shell with a frame made of ebony and macasar wood, giving this little a bag a natural, beachy, organic feel that few bags have. Because of the multicolored, slightly shiny exterior, the bag could go with almost any summer outfit you could imagine, and the shell would pick up the colors of your clothes and look a bit different every time you wore it. It’s small, so I don’t know if it would hold everything I carry, but I’d may some cuts if it meant taking this little beauty along to have a beer on the beach. Are you sitting there reading this thinking “hey, I’ve seen this clutch already”? That is probably because you have!
Although the holidays seem like so long ago, I continue my search for fabulous handbags I’d love to add to my wish list. After all, whoever said your wish list only applies during the holidays? As I am sure you know (because I say it all the time), I am a pretty practical girl. I like functional and fashionable handbags. But, from time to time, I do find myself interested in something that might seem a little more out there for my taste. The Celestina Abalone Box Clutch is unique, elegant and eye catching. The red abalone faceted box clutch boasts features you see often. Crafted from natural resources, the abalone shell makes this clutch one that is surely to be the topic of conversation while carrying it. Sure, there isn’t a lot of room for all sorts of things you might typically carry with you, but there is enough space for the bare essentials. And honestly, I just think this would be a fun accessory to carry around. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $770.
