Over the Christmas season, I bought these two clutches from Saks Fifth Avenue.  The quality of the bags is unparalleled to any other evening bag that I own.  Both clutches are designed by Saks Fifth Avenue.

The first clutch (on top) is a beautiful piece that goes with almost anything.  It is a beige hard case clutch with several jewel stones on the outside that range from silver to pewter to yellow gold.  It is truly stunning and goes with any formal gown or cocktail dress.

The second clutch (on bottom) is an Art Deco piece that blends turquoise with black, maroon, and gold.  The evening bag is beaded which shows off these colors evening more.  It is a beautiful clutch that can be combined with many different evening looks because of its versatility in color.

Both evening bags are truly beautiful.  The quality of craftsmanship by Saks Fifth Avenue is superb.  I carried the Art Deco evening bag to the symphony recently and received many compliments!

I recently purchased this beautiful Badgley Mischka handbag  at Saks Fifth Avenue and my description of it can only be pure perfection.  Everything about this bag is well-crafted from the zippers to the handles.  It was well-worth its retail price.

I have been a long-time admirer of Badgley Mischka since the early 2000’s when I bought the gorgeous evening gown shown below from one of their collections.  I did not know as much about fashion back then as I do now, but I did know quality and luxury.  The Badgley Mischka gown that I chose had both. The gown that I purchased was a black and tan symmetrical striped gown that fit me perfectly.  I wore it to compete in the Miss Georgia USA® 2002 pageant.  I may not have walked away with the crown that cool November night, but I certainly had the best dress thanks to Badgley Mischka.  I have never forgotten the brand or how it made me feel.  Here’s a photo of the gown itself!

When I saw the fabulous handbag above by Badgley Mischka, I had to have it.  Carrying the brand makes me reminisce about years ago when I wore this beautiful gown onstage and felt so beautiful.
