Oh to be rich and famous, to have an overinflated bank balance and a jam-packed social calendar. Because those are just the kind of circumstances I need to justify indulging in this delicious evening purse from Maddalena Marconi.
Often this opulent European label goes over the top with its gemstones and decorations, but I think it's done just enough here. It's luxurious to be sure, with its hand sewn silver lace body, ivory and golden beads, and glittering Swarovski crystals. But all those decorations are arranged so artfully that it doesn't seem like overkill. It's the kind of purse I can imagine royalty or the figureheads of High Society carrying to complement their tiaras and ball gowns.
Of course such nobility don't need to carry much on an evening out as their minders are doing all the heavy lifting. So it's unsurprising that there's little space in a purse such as this. You'll be able to carry a slim cell phone and handkerchief if you know how to pack them right, but you may need to reconsider what's really essential on an evening out. At least there's a chain strap though, although I wish it were much longer and removable. The last thing we want is to clutter up that already small interior with a chain, particularly one too short to fit over our shoulder.
I'd be remiss not to mention that bottom line, a staggering $1298. You might need to snag the handsome prince before you indulge in this evening purse, ladies!
