Just as I was beginning to tire of studded purses, this Jacqueline clutch from Big Buddha crosses my path to change my mind.
Big Buddha breathes new life into the popular trend by interpreting it in a delicate new way. The fine studs make a refreshing change from the chunky hardware accents we typically see. By mixing up the metal, both in color and in style, Big Buddha also makes this purse feel fresh. Under the hands of a less skillful design house the mismatch of studs may seem a bit confused, but the neutral color palette helps Big Buddha get away with this risk.
A long tassel peeks out from underneath the front flap, giving the Jacqueline just a hint of bohemian style. Some may feel the accent is unwarranted as it competes with all those studs, but I feel it finishes the purse nicely.
I'm less enthusiastic about the metal chain strap. It's always nice to have a hands-free carrying option, but this one seems a bit too chunky for the purse. The thick metal links seem at odds with those delicate studs. They make the purse feel less feminine, and frankly confuse the look. Personally I'd detach it for a much cleaner look.
It's not the perfect purse, but the Jacqueline's price is pretty spot on. It can be yours for $62.50, and even less now it's on sale!
