You may recall this mother-of-pearl clutch by Serpui Marie and how I came across it and its equally stunning brethren at a trade show in LA this past fall--and then how I proceeded to order 23(!) bags for my friends and me. (They paid me back!) Well, the bags just arrived in a box from Brazil and I am over the moon. The zig zag clutch above is my favorite, because it's so glinty and gorgeous and jewel-like. It's like holding a piece of art in the palm of my hand. My friends are equally happy with theirs. And none of us will care one bit that we'll all be sporting the same clutch when we're out on the town. Mine made its debut last night at a swanky dinner party for Valentino and garnered at least a dozen compliments. I am feeling very proud.
