Material: Glitter fabric outer with a leather lining

Measurements: Height: 16cm / 6.3″ , width: 23cm / 9″, depth: 2cm / 0.8″; (all measurements are approximate).

Style note: Isn’t the colour of this bag simply stunning? I’m a fan of the Valorie anyway – the bag is brought out each year in different fabrics and finishes – but this one is my favourite to date. It could add an opulent splash of colour to a little black party dress, but you could even wear this clutch with designer jeans to add a touch of glamour to a more ordinary outfit.

I also love the way these bags are made – the lush leather lining is the trademark of a really high quality handbag.
