It’s the Letter mesh clutch by Felix Ray and I’m besotted. It comes in your choice of gold (shown) or black, and it’s on sale at Bloomingdale’s. In fact, a whole lot of purses are on sale at Bloomies right now because they’re having their semi-annual purse sale. Dozens of designer purses are on sale at 30% – 50% off their regular prices. That’s how it is that this delightful mesh clutch is available for just $91.00 (regularly $130.00)!
Whether your taste runs more to Felix Ray or Prada, there’s a glorious new purse waiting just for you at a bargain price. Hurry up and take your least maxed out credit card of the post-holiday season and make your spring a bit more elegant.]]>
It’s simple and subtle, but has some real verve of its own between the generous size, the fun way it’s pieced, and the delicious sheen of the metallic satin. The shoulder chain can also be slipped inside the purse to convert it into a clutch. There are even rhinestone accents on the closure for an extra touch of sparkle. Choose from gold, silver, or metallic black.
Best of all, it’s a great deal at 6pm.com! The retail price is $127.00, but at 6PM it’s just $76.20. That’s 40% off!
It’s enough to give me an enchanted evening!]]>
I’m also pretty darn taken with the current price. You see, the retail tag would read $450.00. Bluefly has been carrying it for a thrifty $270.00, which is a huge improvement over the original. Right now, though, Bluefly is taking an extra 15% off everything on the site making the cost to you just $218.44!
But wait! There’s more! Order right now and you can still get your package to that special someone in time for Christmas. What’s more, it will only cost you $2.00. That’s right, $2.00. Two lousy bucks for 2nd day shipping (check site for restrictions) on orders of $100.00 or more.
I think my Grinchly heart just grew two sizes. Thank you, Bluefly!]]>
This beauty is by Rafe New York, and I’m in love with it. It has layers of multicolored chains all over the flap for a fun and fabulous look. At 8″ x 7″ x 2″ with a crossbody chain strap, it’s a compact yet practical way of carrying your basic needs. It closes with a magnetic snap and there’s a zipper closure to the interior pocket.
The best thing of all, though, is the sale. Regularly priced at $450.00, it’s on sale at Nordstrom for just $299.90.
Baby, these are chains I would enjoy.]]>
Bold, bright color is where I’m at. It also appears to have been where Lodis was when they designed this utterly lickable metallic hot pink clutch:
In addition to this glorious blue, there’s a vibrant green, a rich plum, and an eye-catching pink. Every one would sparkle against a little black dress…or a great outfit in a brighter color.
Best of all, it can be yours for a song. Originally priced at $179.00 (a price that could easily have had me singing the blues), it’s been marked down to just $98.45 at Endless!
I think my world just became a little more colorful.]]>
I’m utterly seduced by this gorgeous purse by Linea Pelle. It’s made of creased, pebbled leather in this scrumptious purple or in a beige color called Sand Storm. Me? I’m sticking with Purple Dawn.
There’s a pair of handles with an 8″ drop, or you can use the 38″ long shoulder strap, if you prefer. The interior is lined in a fun zebra print and has two patch pockets to help you keep things organized.
How much for all of this? Well, the retail price is $495.00. Bluefly usually carries it for $297.00, which is a vast improvement. But I think we can do better. So does Bluefly. They’ve marked it down to just $272.99, or 45% off the original price!
Now that’s a perfectly good deal.]]>
It’s just a simple clutch, but covered in an intricate design of bronze-colored beads with a buckle ornament on the clasp highlighted with Swarovski crystals. Oh, and if you don’t want to carry it as a clutch, you can convert it to a small shoulder bag using the included chain.
So, lovely and practical. Those are two great things for a purse to be. But isn’t it great if it’s also a good deal? Lucky thing for you that this really is a great deal. Originally priced at $149.00, which isn’t at all a bad price to begin with, it’s been drastically reduced to a mere $79.00 at Madison Ave. Mall. That’s a savings of $70.00, or nearly half!
Who wants silver or gold? This bronze is just what I need.]]>
Witness the Bric Life medium sized satchel bag in grape microsuede banded in dark brown leather. It’s a roomy 13.39″w x 8.27″h x 4.92″d to hold all your valuables during your busy day. Three inner pockets (one patch, one zip, one cell phone) and an attractive beige fabric lining make it as beautiful as it is practical.
Best of all is the price. The retail price is $370.00, but right now you can get it on sale from FORZIERI.com for a mere $259.00. That’s a nice price for so much style.
*with apologies to Jethro Tull…sort of.]]>
But just because you need to haul a lot of gear doesn’t mean you have to give up carrying a superfantastic accessory!
BCBGMAXAZRIA created this gorgeous and practical messenger bag out of soft lambskin in a delicious congac color. It’s up to you whether you carry it by the wrapped handles or drape it across your body with the detachable 60″ strap. Inside, there are a zip, a patch, and a cellphone pocket.
Best of all, it’s on a great sale at Bluefly. The retail value is $348.00. Bluefly usually carries it for $208.00, which is a great deal. But right now you can get it for just $176.80! That’s 49% off the original price!
Now that’s a message I can get behind.]]>
That’s soft, supple buffalo leather, available in your choice of brown (shown) or navy. As much as I love blue, I’ve fallen madly in love with this elegant color. I’m also loving the braided shoulder strap and subtle pleated detailing. There’s a zip closure to the bag for security, too.
Normally, all this would set you back about $575.00, but we don’t deal in ‘normally’ here at the Basement. Right now this gorgeous purse is on sale at Neiman Marcus for just $403.00! That’s an extra $172.00 in your pocket for other pretties.
Oh, and when you’re checking out the site, don’t forget to type in code SHOPNM for free shipping on any size order. But hurry! The deal is only good until the witching hour strikes on November 17.]]>
