I appreciate Stella McCartney‘s stance against the use of leather in fashion and I like her designs but sometimes the prices are just a bit… high. Take this gem embellished champagne twill clutch for example– it’s very cutsey (and not my cup of tea) but I’m sure many of you will find it appealing, especially with Prom season coming up. But if you are shopping for a prom clutch for yourself or your daughter, I doubt you’ll want to shell out a grand for it. So here are some options for you to DIY. Start with this J. Furmani champagne colored satin clutch (11″ wide) for $31.50 and add a few crystal flower pins on it ($15.95 each). For under $100 you’ll have a similar look plus you can choose the colors to coordinate with your gown.
Of course some of our bag snobs may want the Stella version– here it is for $995 at Net-a-Porter.com. What do you think? DIY or go for the Stella?
