Remember our excitement over Smythson of Bond Street’s new line of bags? Now we have something else to tempt your wallet with, the absolutely darling chocolate Mara clutch in supple calf leather stamped croc. This is a great opportunity for you to get the all important exotic look this season for a very small price, $795 to be exact. I have this clutch in sunny yellow ostrich and let me tell you the construction of the clutch is every bit as meticulous (if not more so) as Smythson of Bond Street stationery goods. From the impeccable stitching to each carefully crafted corner, every detail is perfection. The pale gold engraved Smythson clasp is perfectly in sync with the design of the clutch, not overpowering but makes a statement. I also love that it is a roomy and structured clutch (10.5″ x 5″), allowing plenty of room for your wallet, cell and make up bag for a proper night out or luncheon. Should you get tired of clutching it around, you can slip the removable chain out and carry it on your shoulder. Voila, two fab looks for the price of one. Did I mention it is only $795? Trust me, it is as close as you will get to crocodile skin without shelling out thousands of dollars, it is that well made (and it should satisfy you wild animal lovers who chastise us regularly for promoting the use of crocodile and python skins). Besides, everyone knows what a snob I am, would I be seen with this bag if it is anything less than extraordinary? Available at Smythson of Bond Street worldwide or online.
