Kourtney Kardashian’s Stand-Out Accessory: Metallic Gold Box Clutch

Aug 24 2010

We sure love talking about the Kardashian sisters. They all have a knack for dressing up their LBDs with the most interesting accessories. I mean, yes they are all over the place, but from a fashion viewpoint the sisters always manage to stay interesting.

This time around, it’s the eldest sister Kourtney who is in the spotlight. She was at the Comcast Entertainment Group’s Party for the Kardashian’s hit reality TV show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”:

Kourtney was rocking a chic little black dress with sheer detail on the arms and shoulders. She used some leopard print pumps and an interesting textured gold box clutch to give her frock just the right dose of panache.

Take a closer look at her clutch:

I haven’t ID’ed the fabulous clutch she’s wearing but I did manage to round up some potential pieces reminiscent of it from high to mid to low price ranges:

The Jimmy Choo Printed Pony Conti Clutch

Aug 17 2010

Here at allclutchbags, we usually talk about clutches we love and adore. We do however, have pieces were not so sure about. Like the Jimmy Choo Printed Pony Conti.

Seriously, what were the designers at Jimmy Choo, trying to achieve with this bag? I am a bit confused. I know the rock star, tough chic look has been big of late, but this? Isn’t this a little too blatant? I appreciate the effort to go a little out of their comfort zone and be a bit more edgy. But they might have gone quite too far. What are your sentiments on this?

Don’t get me wrong. I like Jimmy Choo. But just like any other designer, the fashion house does have its hits and misses. Sad to say, this piece is just in the latter category.

Alexander Wang Notebook Clutch

Aug 16 2010

Here’s an interesting piece of clutch every college girl should have. Well, every girl who can afford, at least – Notebook Clutches from Alexander Wang.

Alexander Wang Notebook Clutches in Grey/White Snake and Black Croc

These purses literally look like notebooks. Posh notebooks for that matter because the “cover” (body) is made of embossed leather, snake for the Grey and White combi and Croc for the Black.

Each purse also comes with a metal spiral spring at the top to make it look like a real, authentic, true blue notebook. Talk about being stylishly collegiate.

Right now, only Alexander Wang is offering this unique clutch, but I won’t be surprised if I see a knock-off version a month or two from now. We’re living in a fast fashion world after all.

If you want and can afford the Alexander Wang Notebook Clutch, feel free to purchase it from Shopbop.com. It retails for a heavy US$625.

The Linea Pelle Alex Mini Crossbody Bag

Ok, I can appreciate fringes on bags, but I honestly have mixed emotions about this fringe mini bag from Linea Pelle.

I mean, how long is too long for you? The fringes on this one are definitely really long that wearing it will make you look like you’re wearing a fringe skirt!

I can appreciate the body of the bag of course. And the suede material looks exquisite to touch, but can a short person walk with it without (stepping on the fringe and) tripping?

There is no information on the length of the fringes of this product’s listing in Shopbop, but judging from the pictures, I think a short person can possibly manage.  Besides, there’s always the option of cutting off and shortening the fringes yourself.

So, what say you? Think you can rock this fringe purse like a true blue bohemian chick?

If you think you can, simply purchase the Linea Pelle Alex Mini Crossbody at Shopbop.
