What is your biggest pet peeve? I could probably come up with a lot of things! But when it comes to accessories, I think it has to be gaudy motifs. I’m sorry, but I have never been a fan of lips. I honestly don’t know what the appeal is. And yet I have seen several handbags and clutches with a big fat pair of lips either as an adornment or as the actual shape of the piece. So when I saw the Diane von Furstenberg Carolina Lips Clutch, I was not surprised and surprised at the same time.
I am not surprised because it is Diane von Furstenberg and I have seen other lip themed pieces from her. I am a little surprised though because the lip adornment on this piece is more contemporary looking. What I mean is, it isn’t as gaudy as it could be. This sleek satin clutch features a flap closure and chain shoulder strap. It is simple in every way. Well, except for the gold lips adorning the front. Even they are simple though. Long and asymmetrical, they are a more updated take on the pop art lips motif. And from a distance, you may not even notice that they are lips. So I suppose in that respect, this piece isn’t too bad. It would probably look nice if paired with the right outfit.
