Juicy Couture clutches, $39.99 each

I adore photo prints paired with stark basics (as you can see here), but I don’t think the trend is worth a serious investment. These Juicy Couture clutches have recently been reduced to a wallet-friendly $40. Which would you choose? A serene ocean print or beachy palm trees

(I was a bit wary that the description indicates there’s a logo on the back of the clutch, but they don’t show a photo. You can see it on the back of clutch here at Shopbop.)

I was ecstatic to see that Kate Spade’s "Queen of the Nile" clutch ($129) was part of the surprise sale that launched last night. So much so that I actually yelled for Dave to grab a credit card (any credit card!) so I could order it as soon as possible. (He handed over his own AmEx and told me it was an early birthday present.) I had fallen for the clutch last year, added it to my cart numerous times, but just couldn’t pull the $348 trigger. If you’d rather not carry a camel clutch, this ceramic plate ($38) adds a touch of exoticism to your coffee table.

Zara clutch, $35.90

Contrary to popular advice, I don’t mind investing in a trendy statement piece when it’s something so perfect for my closet that a cheaper alternative just won’t do. My standout was a YSL arty ring long before Yves was dropped from the name. $195 was a lot to pay for a metal and glass cocktail ring (now it’s $290), but it was “the one” and I still wear it regularly. A metallic clutch (or a lucite one, for that matter) is not that type of purchase for me. I’d rather experiment with this budget-friendly Zara version.

Reminder! Win a pair of bangle bracelets from Sequin!

Splurge or Save?

Would you splurge or save on an orange Lucite clutch? While I appreciate the clear border on the CC Skye version, the Zara clutch is my pick for this trendy accessory.
