Sarah Jessica Parker Sports Some Seriously Square Clutch

Sep 23 2010

Sarah Jessica Parker was among the 1000++ mourners who attended Alexander McQueen’s memorial service at St. Paul’s Church the other day.

The Sex and the City star took part in the ceremony in a tulle dress which she stylishly topped with a coat and finished off with stunning strappy platform mary janes.

But the best piece in her outfit was the one she held in her hand – a beautiful box clutch decorated with fine gold artwork.

Wow. Seeing it up close simply takes my breath away. That’s one seriously square yet seriously divine piece of clutch

Sources say it’s from McQueen’s Pre-Fall 2010 collection. It is most likely a pricey piece, just like any other Alexander McQueen item, but if you want it, feel free to splurge on it.

Now if you can’t afford it, don’t pressure yourself. Grab this structured piece from Christian Audigier instead:

We Want Eva Mendes’ Prada Floral Clutch

Sep 19 2010

We are officially smitten. We don’t usually go for printed clutches as we find them impractical. Until we saw Eva Mendes clutching a Prada floral clutch.

Eva Mendes

At the “The Other Guys” premier in Vue Leicaster Square, she was stunning in an emerald green cocktail dress paired with some purple satin pumps. The floral clutch pulled the look together. We think this is one of her best looks ever. We also like that she took a (fashion) risk and nailed the look right smack on the head.

For a look like Eva’s here, all you need is a jeweled color cocktail dress and pumps plus a good dash of confidence to pull it off. A nice touch to it is a floral clutch and as much as we’d love to clutch the Prada floral number, we’d like to have some reasonable options to consider and here are what we found.

Betsey Johnson Glitzy Floral Clutch, $97 from $152

Nuo Chloe Dao for Nuo Floral Abstract Clutch, $24.99

Christian Audigier Blossom Cherie Clutch, $37.59 from $190 (great deal!)

As you can see, these pieces are absolutely good deals. So have your plastic money at reach and click on!
