Designer or Deal? Classic evening hard clutch: designer IT bag version / affordable brand version priced under $100 /

Have you eyed the beautiful, classic hard clutch by Jimmy Choo over the years? I know I have! It’s a beautiful evening clutch which Jimmy Choo offers in different colors every year, while continually offering timeless neutral hues in glittering acrylic.

This clutch has enough room for all your evening essentials, and a hidden chain strap so you can sling it over your shoulder while holding appetizers at an event. While this clutch is priced within reach under $1000, there is a similar version on the market priced under $100. Sometimes it is nice to remove a zero!

This pretty little deal offers the same style as the Jimmy Choo glitter acrylic clutch, without the designer price tag. It is a well-known brand sold at one of your favorite department stores, so you know it is a safe to buy; and legitimate! I would never, ever suggest a shady copy.

If you are interested in this fabulous deal, on the perfect clutch for the holiday party season, you might want to snap it up quickly. It’s currently on sale-making it under $50 right now!

Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette review

baguette trend spring 2020

I love finding a handbag which fits into multiple categories. The new Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette is not only on trend, it’s a functional bag that serves multiple purposes. Love that!

One of the big trends for spring 2020, and 2020 in general, is the return of the baguette. We are seeing baguettes everywhere! This fabulous baguette by Rebecca Minkoff isn’t just your average baguette, it’s a convertible baguette. Oh yes, it’s three bags in one! Love!

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette is a cross body bag, it’s a retro under-the-arm shoulder bag, and it’s a clutch. Yup, that’s right! You can wear this bag on casual days as a cross body bag, amp up your look with a ’90’s shoulder bag vibe, or pair it with an evening ensemble. So while we are sheltering-in-place right now, it’s the perfect bag to wear cross body while going to the grocery store or pharmacy. You can also wear it cross body while taking a walk outside. Then, when the economy starts to open back up, you can wear it as a clutch to go out to dinner or a party. You can also wear it with the shorter strap over your forearm or shoulder. It’s a lot of looks in one, for a reasonable price under $250. Love that!

I love how this bag has two detachable straps. You can detach the one you don’t want to wear, or leave them both on and allow the one you aren’t using to drape down; giving the bag a street style vibe. So fun!

It also has a magnetic closure, so you don’t have to fiddle with the clasp as shown. That’s actually cosmetic. The hidden magnetic closure makes this bag easy in, and easy out. Perfect to wear everyday. Loving that!

The interior of the Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette offers just enough room for daily purse essentials such as wallet, lipstick, phone, keys, and sunglasses. It also features an interior slip pocket which is great for receipts, business cards, cash, or credit cards; in case you decide to not carry a wallet.

The Rebecca Minkoff Edie Baguette also has an exterior opera ticket pocket. This is great for receipts, and other slim objects you might want to reach for, or put away quickly, without opening up the bag. There are so many reasons why this bag is functional and practical, while still being on trend.

This is a fabulous bag to wear right now, and into the summer, fall, and winter seasons. It will definitely live longer than the season. This bag will also save us all money in the long-run since it is three bags in one! Plus, it fits into the bright bag trend, baguette trend, and multi-color trend for the spring and summer seasons.

I’m loving this bag so much this season! It’s part of my spring handbag capsule wardrobe too. What do you think?

You can see it styled at Rebecca Minkoff’s spring 2020 New York Fashion Week presentation here.

Mansur Gavriel Cloud clutch review

Ah! I finally caved and bought the Mansur Gavriel Cloud clutch! This beautiful clutch is priced well under $1000, and has an IT factor to it. Love that!

The Mansur Gavriek Cloud clutch is starting to sell quickly; reminding us all of the days when we couldn’t get our hands on their famous bucket bag to save our lives. In order to snag the Cloud clutch in black with flamma interior, which I feel like is an iconic color combo for a Mansur Gavriel bag, I went on a wait list. It took two months to receive my new clutch, and it was worth the wait.

This soft and buttery leather clutch is lightweight, and fits a ton of items! My camera fits inside too, but I used it to take these pictures so you will have to imagine it inside the bag. Even with the camera inside, there is sill room for more items; such as a baggie of goldfish crackers for the kids. This makes the Cloud clutch by Mansur Gavriel a great daytime bag; as long as you don’t mind carrying it around.

The Mansur Gavriel Cloud can be hand-held, or tucked underneath your arm. It is comfortable to carry since it is a lightweight bag and the structure is ultra-soft. It would even work as an evening bag since a pair of flats could fit inside. (sometimes a girl needs a plan B when it comes to walking in heels-just sayin’)

Below you can see what I carry in my clutch, and you can also see the extra room for more items. The narrow blue case is a sunglasses case.

This is a really fun bag for attending an event, carrying out to lunch with the girls, or anytime you want to look on trend, and in-the-know 😉 It comes in several seasonal colors, but my favorite is classic black with flamma interior. I’m looking forward to wearing this bag often during the spring and summer seasons; as well as into fall.
