Anya Hindmarch Clutch Galore

Rebecca Minkoff

A clutch bag is basically a woman’s strapless purse that is carried in the hand, and any fashionista should have at least a few in her closet. I’m a worshipper of anything sparkly and absolutely adores sequins especially with a champagne on Friday night. Perhaps it is the festiveness feelings or late-November’s blustery, overcast skies, but whatever the reason, glimmering shades of slate and cobalt, black and navy, are suddenly altogether too bewitching to resist .



When it comes to Anya Hindmarch, I totally love her for designing bags that totally fulfil a woman's needs of style as well as function. The Anya Hindmarch Marano Glitter clutch fits nicely into my sparkly list and it instantly puts the shine on your best evening ensembles.

Marano Glitter Clutch – oh la la


Close up AH emblem

This is a great fun clutch for the holidays that does not require too much thought. The glitter fabric will make you sparkle. The simple turn lock closure and forgiving fabric allows for a lot more room than a rigid clutch. You don't even have to wait for a holiday party - wear it dressed down or when your outfit needs a bit of glamour. Did I not mention this Marano clutch comes with 6 different colours?



Isn’t she lovely…


Turnlock closure

Oh, I love the Valorie clutch! I particularly love the glittery leather envelope style flap over in navy blue. The simple fold-over design of this clutch is classic and elegant. The pleated gold satin has an amazing sparkle to it, but isn't overpowering, like so many sparkly bags. The pleating on the Valorie gives it a fabulous texture and dimension. It's a little bit flashy, sure, but still totally elegant and streamlined. It's the kind of clutch you carry on the red carpet or with expensive jeans to art openings.

It reminds me of my AH Gracie bag



Roslyn Patent Clutch

The Roslyn clutch has just the kind of versatility that I’m looking for, it features a detachable gold tone chain strap that provides the convertibility that I adore! The fold over flap at the front has an exposed twist designer fastening, pleat detailing and gold designer emblem at back. The interior is a beige suede with a patch pocket. This precious gem is just large enough for your essentials. Let’s start the Anya shopping spree, weee!

The Ultimate Cocktail & Party Dresses


The one thing I love about the fact that the month of December has already made its way well into our doorstep is that, this means that the holiday season has officially begun and holidays definitely give one the license to socialise and indulge sinfully in the most chic parties this side of the globe. With the holiday season heavily revolving around parties, you can bet your last pennies that we’ll be hitting the malls to deck ourselves in fancy fabrics, the sexiest heels, and a ton of shimmer and sparkle as we begin the mission of making heads turn as we toast la dolce vita in the most awaited season ever.


Do you wish to stand out from the crowd and make an individual fashion statement? Reflecting femininity and passion, the cocktail dresses are the ideal attire for today’s women which would boost their charisma. The main advantage of cocktail dresses is that it is formal as well as trendy. The demand for party wears has gone up with the sudden increase in the trend of throwing parties. More and more designers are putting in the effort to bring out the most appealing evening dress, short dresses and cocktail dresses for the classy women.
