+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: July 20

A simple gold box clutch (or minaudiere, if you’re feeling fancy) is the quintesential evening bag.  I’ve carried mine to Inaugural balls, dinner parties and weddings.  If you only want to buy one evening bag, this is the only one you need.

    Just curious– how does an upaid intern afford a glitzy $68 clutch? I make a decent salary as an engineer and that would still be beyond my budget…

    Please don't take the category names literally. They're just a unique way to label items in three price points. That being said, I did try to put up a $14 clutch from Forever 21, but it was sold out.
