Elaine Turner Bella Zig-Zag Envelope Clutch: No Invitation Necessary

The steal of the season (literally stole it off the model and bought it on the spot)! Houston-based accessories designer Elaine Turner has the right idea: she wants her bags to unify elegance, energy, and all-around fun. Not to mention reachable, tangible luxury. Mission accomplished! The little Bella clutch packs a whole lot of celebratory punch, at a price really worth applauding.

The beaded Bella clutch, coated in chevron-print beads (just ask Missoni, this zig-zag is the most versatile print you could want in a clutch), it’s got the air of a festive pattern and total neutrality in one. Shades of black, gold, white, and graphic blend gorgeously – the allover sheen lends the beads a muted effect. The delicate bamboo closure finishes off this envelope with finesse, and with an internal zip-pocket and mirror, you can’t ask for much else. You just met my future plus-one for all the upcoming holiday parties.

Want more? While this color combination is by far my favorite, the Bella also comes in a variation with three other hues: silver and light gold, bronzed gold, and purple and gold. At Elaine Turner for $175.

Pair with: Once you start to sparkle, you don’t want to quit. Bring some twinkle to your toes with my picks of this season’s glittery shoes: Miu Miu’s gold cap-toe pump ($690), Jimmy Choo’s gunmetal-crystal beauty ($2,095), Giuseppe Zanotti’s jewel-encrusted beauty ($1,835), Co-Op Barneys’ rose-gold cut-out sandals ($495), and Sergio Rossi’s scalloped satin delights ($920).
