Wedding clutches to make you clutch your pearls and gasp

Posted by

A commenter on my shoe post last week suggested that maybe I branch out a bit from shoes (mais non!) and try my mouse-clicking trigger finger at wedding clutches.

Ever one to abide, I’m going to give it a go, but keep this in mind: I didn’t have a clutch at my wedding, so I can’t really say I have personal experience with the concept. I just know what I like, and if you’ve been reading my shoe posts you know what I like too: loud, colorful accessories that make a statement. I actually feel like the more traditional or simple the dress, the louder and more shocking the accessories can be. So let’s get loud and shocking.

Also: one of these clutches costs $2300 (!!!). Can you guess which one?

Comments on Wedding clutches to make you clutch your pearls and gasp

  1. dear lord what people will pay for a name!Glad to say that i clicked on my favorite (the black one with the rose on top) and it was not the uber exspensive one because that would be heartbreaking.

  2. The McQueen actually costs $2395.00. I can’t understand spending that much on something that couldn’t hold my cell phone and a few cards and bills, but more power to those who could, I guess.

  3. I love the first one; I think it’s the first satin, ivory clutch I’ve seen that I would probably use at some point after the wedding.

  4. Yay, I guessed right!

    But also booo, as it is my favourite. 🙁

    I wonder if there are any copies/similar ones that don’t cost more than my parents’ first house.

  5. OMG, the black with the roses is to die for!

    I totally agree with you, Kayte,so much $$$ for something you will rarely use. I can’t understand the design, either. The skull clasp….

  6. Spectacular finds! Gushing love for the beaded & baubled. My favorites are the Mary Frances Accessories – so feminine – but the snake print in purple is oh-so-tempting…

    Thank you Ariel!

  7. Wow, unlike your shoe posts, the clutches I liked and clicked on were NOT the most expensive ones in the post. My budget demands more non-shoe accessory porn. (Kidding. I need a fix of shoes.) 😉

    And seriously, Alexander? Twenty-three HUNDRED dollars for a purse? At that price it should do my taxes, vibrate, and have a self-refilling supply of bonbons in a magical compartment inside.

  8. I suffer from being head-over-heels in love with the Alexander McQueen brand. It doesn’t matter what fashion spread or mish-mash of items I’m looking at, my eyes will go directly to the McQueen piece and I will salivate immediately.
    Fortunately, I’m not certain I’ve ever had that much money in my possession at one time. So yay. Or boo. Depending on how you look at life.

    I can’t imagine having a purse at a wedding. Do you suspect you’re going to need your ID? Is the bartender going to card you? Are you seriously taking phone calls?
    Let someone else handle the details on this one day of your life, folks. :p

    For bridesmaids, MOBs/MOGs and sundry wedding guests, however… YES!

    • Some people like to have them to 1) hold make up for touch ups 2) hold tissues for crying or 3) just be pretty instead of bouquet
