Clutching at Bags
The clutch may just be the most impractical handbag on earth, but we still think it is a great evening accessory, and it forces us to discard the usual handbag clutter and travel light. Here's a few of the clutches we are eyeing for holiday parties.
If you are paying by cash, then go for this Anna Dello Russo for H&M clutch in bright turquoise ($69.95.) But act fast, this collection won’t be in stores for long. At H&M Pacific Center, 701 W. Georgia St., Vancouver, 604-688-7236, www.hm.com/ca
Take out the debit card and go local with Vancouver brand Clutches of Karma and its stunning mother of pearl clutch ($415.) This is more of a piece of jewelry than a bag. At Rebecca Bree, 3680 W. Fourth Ave., 604-714-0085, www.rebeccabree.com
Pay on credit and splurge on this Sabrina clutch ($1,100) from the Tiffany’s leather collection. Available in bronze, gold, or silver, although we are wondering why there isn’t a black one... to match our fantasy credit card, of course. At Tiffany & Co., 723 Burrard St., Vancouver, 604-630-1300, www.tiffany.ca
