This Peggy clutch really speaks to me. I like everything about it. I like the simple style, the python texture, and the gold hardware against the dark red color. The gold hardware can be pulled up and you can carry it like a tote. This means you are getting two looks in one price.
After reading the description of the clutch, I learned that the python is not real. It is actually embossed. I’m fine with embossed python as long as it is done nicely. I remember looking at brand new python bags in Michael Kors boutique with the scales flaking off and it was not a good sight. I guess embossed python is not so bad after all. At least we know it won’t flake off.
The one thing that bothers me the most about this clutch is that it is not made of leather. The description said it is made of faux-patent leather. So, I’m guessing that it is made of PVC. I wish that they had made this in leather. I have this odd infatuation with handbags and leather. I get really disapointed when I find a bag that I like but is not made of leather. But if you are nothing like me, you can buy this from Shopbop for $132. This clutch measures 7″H x 11″L.
