When it comes to handbags, I think every fashion lover out there has their own preference. For me I use satchels the most, I’m dying to own an Hermes “Birkin” and I’m obsessed with evening bags. Evening bags are made with such detail and are usually very glamorous. I have a list a mile long of evening bags I would love to own but a common theme in all of them is that they’re all unique looking. I never even bat an eye at the average fashion accessory. Every stylish accessory I tend to fall for is usually very different, girly or sparkly. I’m an extreme feminine woman the more cuter an accessory is, the more likely I’ll give it a chance and want it.
The Rafe Sirene “Shell” Minaudiere is a gorgeous clutch. I like in South Florida and it’s all about the weather and ocean hear. You can walk on the beach and you will see seashells everywhere! Some people even walk around and collect them! To see the “Shell” Minaudiere made me smile. It took me back to when I was a child prancing through the beach at night hunting for pretty seashells to put in my purse. Of course I never found a seashell as big at this clutch but if you go into most tourist gift shops in South Florida you will see ones identical to it. I suppose seashells make nice souvenir’s, gifts and it’s always fun to put them up to your ear to hear the ocean.
This is the type of clutch that would obviously only be used at night or to a lunch date on the beach. It would be the perfect accessory when you’re wearing a light color especially cream, beige or tan. Not only does it make a great clutch but it would also make a pretty decor piece when you’re not using it. It literally looks like a big shell and I love it.
You can purchase the Sirene “Shell” Minaudiere at the Rafe Boutique x Neiman Marcus for $395.
