Darby Scott $110,000 Clutch

Today was “accessories” day for me. Not your average blog-posting with a shoe/bag picture and “look what a nice bag/pair of shoes!” beneath. Instead of those dull average catwalk shades – here’s some pepper:

Darby Scott’s minaudière clutch. Nothing smashing about it. Looking from afar, you’d say it’s just wire and plastic. Well, I have news for you! It’s an 18-carat yellow gold structure with Green Tourmaline and Diamond worth $110,000 (darbyscott.com).

I wonder, though, what fits in there? I mean sure, it’s an evening bag, but don’t they think about phones? About papers? What does one carry in an evening bag? Pardon me, what does one carry in an $110,000 evening bag?

Oh my goodness, that’s an expensive clutch. I can buy 1/5 of a house with 2 to 3 bedrooms with that price (in the O.C. that is…)! LOL.

I do appreciate it a lot that Stylefrizz shows us these things. Very much. But I can’t help it to see this clutch as vulgar. And where is it good for? Does it makes one feel good? Gosh…. it isn’t even really attractive. Only to sell for the right price and do something more worthy with it……And it does looks cheap indeed……

@Linda My thoughts exactly! It’s far from fair, comparing a house and a clutch, but the amount of money is far from justified also.
@Adriana Thanks, unjustified luxury is always vulgar. I’m happy you agree! I can’t help from wondering if someone really buys this kind of things!

“unjustified luxury is always vulgar”

??

That’s a ridiculous statement, what is “unjustified luxury ” anyway?

Are you saying that the luxury is unjustified if it is more expensive than it could be, or are you saying that it is unjustified if it doesn’t suit your personal taste, or are you saying that all luxury is unjustified ?

Is there anything wrong with storing wealth in the form of jewellery and the like, rather than in the bank ?

It’s just a bit of fun to have wealth made into interesting objects.
