New Years Clutches

At this time of the year, I always go a bit soft in the head with all of the decorations and whatnot, and find myself gravitating towards all things that glitter; sequinned clothing, large, statement jewellery, and makeup that glitters like a disco ball are some of my defaults.

However, one of the most fun ways to really bring the glitter is to just carry it with you. There is simply no better way to do that than with a festive evening bag. Here are two that will not only put you in the festive mood, but will look great for years to come.

The Alexander McQueen Knuckle Long Box Crustal Clutch - $2,495

This clutch, in all of its permutations, has become a bit of a cult classic. Part street gang weapon, part elegant evening bag, the juxtaposition of the sheen of the gemstones against the silver hardware and skull motifs is a great way to toughen-up your New Year's look.

Whiting & Davis Fringe Evening Bag - $250

This amazing bag is flush with liquid-like textures and reflective cascades of material, and will make it look as if you are carrying a small waterfall with you everywhere you go. Roomier than most evening clutches and miniaudieres, the Fringe Evening Bag is quite literally an accessory unto itself, so you can skip the statement necklace or fascinator when you carry this one. At under $300, the price is right too!
