Patent leather has been huge of late. Of course, it’s one of those things that never completely goes out of style, so it’s a good investment. Basic black is always a winner, too. Again, colors may come and colors may go, but it’s difficult to go too far wrong with black. So if you combine basic black and patent leather, chances are you’ve got a winner of a purse.
Of course, you want something that’s going to make it stand out in order to be superfantastic. That’s why I love this black patent leather clutch by Kenneth Jay Lane. Classic it may be – timeless, even – but it won’t get mixed up with anyone else’s bag in the cloakroom or on a restaurant table.
Between the half-bow detail and the charming enamled ladybug ornament, it stands out in a crowd of ordinary clutches.
It’s practical, too. The flap closes with a magnetic clasp, and there’s also an interior zipper just in case. It even comes with a signature mirror.
And of course there’s the price. When it first arrived on the scene, it was priced at $250.00, but it’s now on sale at Saks Fifth Ave for just $174.90! That’s more than $75.00 off the original quite reasonable price!
