Splurge(s) of the Week!

In conjunction with Neiman Marcus's 100th Anniversary, it has collaborated with various designer brands such as Chloe, Gucci, Valentino, Bottega Veneta, Judith Leiber and Prada. This means that these designer items (handbags in this case) are not to be found anywhere else, except Neiman Marcus, in other words, these handbags are exclusive to Neiman Marcus alone.

As such, this week will feature not one but 2 Splurge(s) of the Week - the Butterfly Celestrina Clutch by Judith Leiber and the Croc Logo Clutch by Prada

First up, the Leiber Butterfly Celestrina Clutch

Made of Pink, Lavender, Lilac and Clear Austrian Crystals, it has a cute Antennae-motif clasp. Hmm, I think this Butterfly Clutch is one of the few Judith Leiber Miniaudieres with such huge crystals. In case you haven't noticed, most Leiber clutches/miniaudieres come with small crystals set in pave style. Exclusive only to Neiman Marcus, this Butterfly Celestrina Miniaudiere is feminine, romantic and whimsical, though I'd prefer it more if the crystals were slightly smaller. Available for $5995 via Neiman Marcus

And the second Splurge of the Week goes to... Prada's Croc Logo Clutch

Made of Pink Crocodile skin, this Croc Logo Clutch by Prada comes with a removal shoulder strap with bow detail. As such, you can either use it as a clutch, or sling it over your shoulder. Specially made exclusive to only Neiman Marcus stores, It comes with a croc luggage tag that reads "Prada for Neiman Marcus". Well, to Bagaholic Babe, this clutch isn't really out of the ordinary, as it looks quite common. Also, usually a sucker for all things Pink, I think the Pink croc with the gold hardware and details just look err, garish. Plus, at $8990, it's a huge price to pay for something so totally ordinary-looking. And, for that price, I'd rather fork out just a little bit more and get a Birkin. However, if you like it and think that it's worth it (cos of the croc), then you can Pre-Order it at Neiman Marcus
