WHAT: Stella McCartney's patent grommet clutch
WHY: The eternal cocktail party conundrum: we can't dress down our party frocks with a too-big handbag, but sometimes those little clutches are just too precious. Enter Stella McCartney, whose patent clutch with a liberal sprinkling of hardware adds a tough-girl edge to your formalwear. You'll adore the size (big enough to stash all the essentials!), and the dots add a dash of personality so often missing in your clutch collection. Merci encore, Stella!
