Anya Hindmarch Valorie Rubber Clutch in Red, Orange or Lime Green

In the sale – was £275, now £175

Brand new for the SS2012 is the classic style of the Anya Hindmarch Valorie Clutch. Of course, the style is usually seen with a glitter coating, or metallic lamé fabric. This is the first year it has been available in rubber, with gold metal hardware.

It is available in three bright colours and has all the standard Valorie features – the branded enamelled turnlock clasp on the front and a detachable chain handle, enabling you to carry the bag in your hand or wear it over your shoulder.

There are no pockets and no lining, and you can keep the bag clean by just wiping it with a damp cloth.

Measurements: 14cm / 5.5″x 23cm / 9″ x 1cm /0.4″ (all measurements are approximate)

Style note: Embrace the seasonal trend for bright colours with these gorgeous, rubber clutch bags. I think Ms Hindmarch is something of a trendsetter with these enviable styles, and they are selling out quickly at Selfridges, so grab one quick if you like them.

Anya Hindmarch Valorie Clutch in Blue Glitter - leather lining

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.

Celebrate Christmas with my-wardrobe.com

One of the perks of being a fashion blogger is being invited to events where I can view some of the season’s latest fashions.   I was recently invited down the the my-wardrobe.com Christmas party, to view many of  the latest lovely items available on their website, in celebration of the opening of their Christmas Room – a room dedicated to party outfits and gifts for the festive season.

Lytton Clutch and Sportmax Ventura Wool Ribbed Hat

Of course, it didn’t take me long to appreciate the gorgeous designer outfits that were surrounding me, and the photo on the right is of me trying out the Anya Hindmarch Valorie Clutch, the gorgeous glitter clutch that Anya Hindmarch brings out each year, which is available in different colours. Those of you with sharp eyes will notice that the table on the left of the photo is bedecked with the Diane Von Furstenberg Lytton, a box clutch with a signature twig clasp which also is brought out each year in different colours and textures of leather.

So, on the left, there’s me (again) posing with the bronze DVF Lytton Clutch and also completing the look with Sportmax Ventura Wool Ribbed Hat, which I was also rather impressed by.

Tibi Cream Tuxedo Jacket with Leather

Another item that I really loved was the Tibi Cream Tuxedo Jacket with leather. This jacket, pictured on the right, has a shawl lapel which is actually made from black leather, together with a stunning lace lining. The jacket itself, which is made from a wool blend fabric, really combines different materials and textures in a most unusual and attractive way.

So take a trip to the my-wardrobe.com Christmas room, and let me know which are your favourite items in the comments section below.
