Metallic bags during the summer season? Heck yes! I think it’s about time we forget that age old notion categorizing metallic bags as only for the holiday season. Sure they do look fabulous with a little black dress, but just because the sun is out doesn’t mean they need to go into hiding. Personally I think a metallic evening clutch looks amazing year-round, but it has to be done right and with the right outfit. Which means, since we’re in the summer season right now, try pairing it with lighter shade, like a white dress or a fun flowy Diane von Furstenburg top.

I just discovered the VBH 111th Anniversary Manila 25 Clutch hanging out in the recently reduced section over at Neiman Marcus. The clutch was made as a special edition for Neiman Marcus.

Currently on sale (was $2,250) $1,507!
