While I’d probably shell out a good bit of cash for The Perfect Handbag (i.e. one that holds my laptop and all my other crap, looks cool and doesn’t hurt my shoulder), I’m much more thrifty about evening bags – my theory is, buy them on sale or borrow them from your grandma. Grandmas always have gorgeous beaded clutches.
