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.

Nordstrom Ruffle Chiffon Frame Clutch

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.

Mary Norton Chiffon Rose Clutch Wait a second, this isn’t a Christian Louboutin design? I have become so accustom to seeing small, silk, chiffon CL handbags that I was a bit surprised this wasn’t another one. When I say I was surprised, I don’t mean it in a negative way. I was actually pleasantly surprised to see that this was a Mary Norton clutch. Just as I had become accustom to seeing Christian Louboutin bags look one way, I was becoming accustom to seeing Mary Norton clutches adorned with several precious gems and stones. It is as if this bag steps outside of the box, at least a bit for this designer.

The Mary Norton Chiffon Rose Clutch is an elegant clutch that can add a girlie feel to just about any outfit. This small clutch is adorned with silk chiffon and comes with a shoulder chain strap. Sometimes I feel as though designers really need to be careful when it comes to the “girlie” factor of any handbag. Mary Norton has nailed this aspect. The way the silk chiffon comes together is beautiful and not over the top. Buy through Saks for $995.
