Enter the Anya Hindmarch Valorie Gold Glitter Clutch and try not to drop whatever you may be holding (especially if it’s your child). This stylish clutch is now signature for the designer Anya Hindmarch, and it is easy to understand why. It is exceptionally understated in its timeless form and style, yet classically appealing with its Hollywood metallic glamour and glitz. Yet I can’t help feeling torn over it and its accompanying price tag. Once again it’s that battle between head and heart.
My head says:
So, £225 may seem like a small amount to pay (in comparison to many designer clutches) for an iconic piece of signature Hindmarch, and our love of gold is very unlikely to sway in the future, but I just can’t help thinking that you might be able to find something equally as stunning on the high-street. Now don’t get me wrong, to receive this as a present would be immensely pleasing, but to purchase it out of my own money, when £200 more could buy something that would actually fit my day-to-day life in it and I could use it every day, could seem slightly rash.
My heart says:
This accessory would be the perfect accompaniment to any evening outfit. When I think about pieces from Balmain, Stella McCartney, and Alexander McQueen even, I can see that this clutch would work with anything and everything from my wardrobe and anything and everything on my imaginary fashion wish-list. And it’s just so GLITTERY and girly. It’s every girls dream, literally. It’s possibly even the Cinderella of clutches. ‘Where’s my credit card… (hunting around in bag)…no one shall stop me…I SHALL purchase this clutch. £225 is literally a bargain!’
So, is it an investment? I think it just might be. Anya Hindmarch’s Valorie Gold Glitter Clutch, £255, available from mywardrobe.com
