I adore almost anything Chanel. This fashion house represents the epitome of style in my eyes in general but there exceptions like the Chanel multi-pocket tote I recently blog about. I am not really sure what is going on with the "Gourd" clutch, the name given to the clutch by Chanel people in Paris. That was the explanation I got from a Chanel rep (from the head office somewhere) and I am sticking to it. It is a hard clutch with oblong gourd shape, literally. I held it in my hand at the store but just not my cup of tea. This is a topic piece rather than a functional piece. This bag retails for $2995 if any gal wants to take it home.
