This Vivian patent leather clutch in a deep, rich wine color is a perfect alternative to generic quilted flap bags. The shape is the first thing that makes it stand apart, even though it does have the classic quilted look. The dramatic color makes this a great choice for bold outfits during the winter. The bow adds a tidy , finished look of a designer accessory.
It can be dressed down with casual clothes or used to make an impact when worn with a business-like or semi-formal outfit. The silver bow and gold hardware add a little spark and femininity to the dark color and classic shape.
It was a tough call for this week’s bag of the week, but we decided on a rather unique new bag we got in called the The Must Have Bag Of The Year. The name raised an eyebrow, but once we laid eyes on the bag we understood. It’s busy, without being gauche. It’s sophisticated in its shape, but playful and fun with its printed pattern. The gold chain and colorful tassels remind us of quilted Chanel bags from the 1980’s, and we really dig that vintage couture vibe. Since it’s black leather with navy blue and gold decoration, it still manages to go with most anything. It’s the perfect “not too big/not too small” size we love in a bag, and its festive appearance means it will look good at parties and fancy outings. All in all, we think this bag can do no wrong.
Priced at an incredibly reasonable $45, you can see why we consider this to be the “Must Have” bag of the year.
Previous “Bag of the Week” Features:
Bag of the Week is our weekly Friday feature where we select the bag we think is really aces from our latest inventory (the fact that we think ALL of our bags are aces makes this a hard decision). This week we are showcasing the stunning Melrose Glam Anarchy Bag. When we received this bag, it elicited a lot of “Ooohs” and “Aaahs.” With the perfect mix of edginess and class, this bag is our top contender when it comes to a versatile every day bag. Dress up for a night on the town, and the silver studs shine. Wear it with your office attire and its classic shape helps keep your outfit formal, but fashion forward.
We hope you fall in love with the Melrose Glam Anarchy bag, just like we did.
