I have a thing for mesh bags. I also have a thing for the mildly surreal and op-art-ish. Combine these three things, and just look what you get:

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.

Franchi Judith Evening Bag on Sale at 6PM Convertible Clutch Purse http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/29/shiny-night/ http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/29/shiny-night/#comments Tue, 29 Dec 2009 14:30:55 +0000 http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/29/shiny-night/ Metallics are always fun for evening. In fact, I love a good evening bag in a metallic that looks good with a variety of colors. It’s a neutral that makes a statement. Speaking of statements, I love the one this evening bag is making:

Franchi Judith Purse 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!

Yellow Pebbled Leather Bodhi Purse on Sale at Bluefly Plus Two Dollar Second Day Shipping http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/22/i-sing-the-bodhinot-electric-but-still-bright/ http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/22/i-sing-the-bodhinot-electric-but-still-bright/#comments Tue, 22 Dec 2009 14:30:28 +0000 http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/22/i-sing-the-bodhinot-electric-but-still-bright/ Bodhi Bucket Purse Look at that. It’s like a ray of sunshine in the middle of dark and gloomy days. It’s a fabulous bucket tote by Bodhi, and it’s making me smile. From the cheerful yellow pebbled leather (it also comes in a delightful grassy green) to the whimsical self buttons on the outer pockets, I find myself utterly besotted by it.

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!

Chain Link Fabulous http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/17/chain-link-fabulous/ http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/17/chain-link-fabulous/#comments Thu, 17 Dec 2009 14:30:19 +0000 http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/17/chain-link-fabulous/ You’d have to be living in a cave not to know that chains are big right now. They’re popular for necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and now purses:

Rafe New York Chain Embroidered Purse 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.

Lodis Very Hot Starlet Metallic Patent Leather Clutch on Sale at Endless http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/06/clutchingbut-not-at-straws/ http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/06/clutchingbut-not-at-straws/#comments Sun, 06 Dec 2009 14:30:48 +0000 http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/06/clutchingbut-not-at-straws/ Anyone who’s been reading this blog for a week knows one thing about me: I love color. Paint It Black is a great Stones song, but (in my not-so-humble opinion) a lousy way of trying to make the world prettier or more elegant. This is not to say that there is no place for black in Twistieworld. It’s just that I prefer to use it to make other colors pop more brightly rather than as an end in itself.

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:

Lodis Very Hot Starlet 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.

Linea Pelle Purple Leather Alyssa Handbag on Sale at Bluefly http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/04/purple-perfection/ http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/04/purple-perfection/#comments Fri, 04 Dec 2009 14:30:24 +0000 http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/12/04/purple-perfection/ Want to see something pretty? How about this?

Alyssa Purse 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.

Bronze Beaded Evening Purse on Sale at Madison Ave Mall, Swarovski Crystals http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/11/30/go-for-the-bronze-2/ http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/11/30/go-for-the-bronze-2/#comments Mon, 30 Nov 2009 14:30:21 +0000 http://basement.shoeblogs.com/2009/11/30/go-for-the-bronze-2/ ‘Tis the season to get great evening bags. After all, with tons of holiday parties coming up, you’ll want something nice to hold your necessities while you have fun. You’ll also want one that complements your outfit and catches the eye of everyone in the room. You’ll want something a lot like this:

Bronze Beaded Evening Bag 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.
