Merry Christmas to Me.....

For the longest time, I drooled over any Judith Leiber Swarovski encrusted clutch. It was rather difficult for me to justify paying so much for something that I could potentially use once a year. Cost per wear was just too high. However I decided to give myself an early Christmas gift because it would be a dream come true for me. Instead of buying other evening clutches, I would be happy with this Judith Leiber clutch for a long long time. At my age, instead of buying quantity, I will just buy pieces I really want instead of buying a bunch of substitutes. In the long run, it is probably cheaper.

Instead of white Swarvoski crystals, I opted for gray crystals which I thought more understated, as over the top bling just didn't appeal to me.This way, I figure I can probably even use it for a nice dinner out. This might reduce cost per wear. If you can have a bag of choice this holiday, what will it be???

  1. The grey crystals seem more versatile and sophisticated. If I could dream I'd pick a navy kelly bag either vintage or not. But maybe next year or the year after, it's crazy when I look back that I buy at least 1 handbag a year!

  10. A beautiful choice. Merry Christmas (early) to you. I think you may find that it is a bag you can carry on more occasions, as you stated - dinners out or when you need something sparkly.

    I have a Marmi leather clutch that I carry on most night out occasions over my cheap-y clutches.
