Carousel Clutch

This miniaudiere by Judith Leiber is the thing  of ostentatious dreams. These clutches are handmade with all crystals, no not gems. It is also not a huge bag, only 6 x 5 x 5. That is really little. They are meant to hold only a lipstick, an ID, a credit card and a few dollar bills. That is all. The idea is that they just fit in the palm of your hand.

Here is a pinboard of her creations.

These clutches are the go-to accessories for black-tie events. These little bags are status symbols among a certain sector of society. (Yes that pesky 1%) A friend of mine told me that at a black-tie event she attended all the women put their Judith Leiber bags around table's center piece. It's called  bourgeois-one-upmanship. Yeah, so wish I could join in the fun....

Realistically, however, we do have a powerful need to eat, so my Judith Leiber is going to have to wait awhile.....

Qi en Pace,
