I have said it plenty of times before, but right now I am on a self-imposed shopping ban. It is easy to get wrapped up in the world of shopping, especially when running a website like mine, but I need to go through my closet, evaluate everything I have and edit before I continue to constantly add. But you know what? Shopping bans are made to be broken, and this bag gives me a major fashion itch.

Valentino continues to wow me with their Rockstud collection. I keep wanting a Rockstud, but for some reason, I can’t commit. I want so badly to commit to this version, the Valentino Crocodile Rockstud Envelope Clutch, which is like the Hermes Kelly Longue taken to the next level.


The red crocodile is ravishing and the gold studs that surround the outer lines of the bag don’t look gimmicky, in fact they make this bag work. I adore my long and elegant evening bags, but none of them have even close to the amount of attitude this bag brings. I’m all kinds of obsessed and mostly feeling like I need to look under every couch in all of New York for spare change to scrounge up $11,200. To purchase (lucky you), contact your local Valentino boutique – this piece isn’t sold online.
