Add A Little Sparkle


I'm sure by now we all realise how important a pair of metallic shoes or sandals are for their ability to go with every single item of clothing you own and how the same can be said for a metallic tote, handbag or clutch, but how about adding something a bit more glitzy to jazz up a jeans, cami and heels ensemble for a night out or even a breton top for day.


A sparkly clutch isn't just for Christmas and I happen to be the proud owner of two glitter clutches, both were sales bargains which were too good to resist and the Anya Hindmarch Valorie was a long time obsession whose turquoise hue was completely ignored, I honestly didn't care what it went with, I just had to have it even though I knew a gold, silver or black bag would of been a better option, but it has served me quite well regardless.


Faux leather bags can often look cheap and patent quite plasticky, but glitter is glitter and sequins are sequins now matter how much you spend, so if the budget doesn't quite stretch to designer arm candy, splash your pennies on something sparkly!



1. Warehouse Gold Sparkle Hard Clutch £28. 2. Chesca Sequin Clutch £45 also available in silver. Anya Hindmarch Valerie Glitter Clutch was £350 now £175. 4. Debut Sequin Molded Clutch £28.50. 5. Juno Black Envelope Clutch was £30 now £21

Are sequins or sparkle on your clutch bag wishlist?

  9. I love the ruby red one in the first picture - it's just the colour which really appeals. I have to say, I don't have much in the way of sparkly bags - I have a little beaded one from Accessorize from years ago which is so tiny which is the nearest to sparkly I've got but I should really donate it to one of George's friends. Someone around age 5 :o/

    I do love the Anya clutches though - I can dream.
