Ever since I won a gorgeous Swarovski clutch right here on The Bag Forum, I’ve been obsessed with clutches. They’re adorable and can really stand out with the right outfit. I recently carried my clutch in Vegas to an intimate show and I received so many compliments on it! Even the main performer loved it! You can always have a gorgeous outfit but the right accessories finish an outfit. That’s what I believe at least.
Swarovski clutches are pricey! Not as pricey as Judith Leiber‘s but they still cost a pretty penny. I learned of designer Sondra Roberts about a year ago and she she makes beautiful clutches that are all reasonably priced!
My current favorite is the “Beaded Minaudiere” Box Clutch. It kind of looks like a Swarovski clutch but for a fraction of the price! It would look amazing and stick out like a gem with a solid black dress. I find that when you wear a black dress, crystals/beads shine more and are more noticeable. When you have a dress that has too much going on, it’s as if the clutch suddenly becomes invisible. This is a clutch that deserves a simple but pretty dress.
You can purchase the Sondra Roberts “Beaded Minaudiere” Box Clutch at Nordstrom for $228.
