At first glance I thought this was a Tom Ford bag,a modern yet timeless clutch with just a glimmer of gold hardware. And was so pleasantly surprised to discover it is actually Phillip Lim— one of my faves! Lim always has the best prices and quality, so you can buy this clutch without hesitation nor ever have a moment of buyer’s remorse. The pebbled leather gives it a casual air, and it’s the perfect size for a night (or day) on the town. Wrist strap is removable but it makes the clutch so why would you?! I’m dying to use this with an all black ensemble- slim Roland Mouret pants (on Net-a-Porter for $722) and black silk shirt from Madewell (at Madewell for $120) – they’re the perfect complements to the simplicity of the bag. Add a layer of gold Ippolita’s chunky chains (at Neiman Marcus for $9,000) for major statement contrast ! Pre-order at Saks Fifth Avenue for $550.
