Snob or Slob? Wannabe Bags: You’re Really Something Else!

Snob or Slob?

Do you ever get the feeling that your bag wishes it was something else? Lately, I’ve noticed a number of clutches that seem to have minds of their own. As if they are not completely content to be themselves. I don’t know about you, but I appreciate a bag that doesn’t fantasize about being another object entirely. Here, a few wannabe bags with higher ambitions.

1. Judith Leiber Couture Acoustic/Electric Guitar Clutch:icon Judith Leiber’s all-over crystal-encrusted guitar looks like a tchotchke that belongs inside the confines of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. And it has the price tag to match a piece of valuable memorabilia. At Bergdorf Goodman for $5,195.

2. Anya Hindmarch Georgiana Smiley Leather Clutch:icon While smooth leather and a tassel embellishment say “bag” all the way, this semi-witty clutch would obviously prefer to be one of the plastic grocery variety. On for $920.

3. Charlotte Olympia Tight Laced Ribbon-Embellished Gold-Tone Clutch:icon This crosshatched metal clutch doesn’t just want to be a cinched corset, circa the Victorian era. It clearly also has notions of being a signature Jean-Paul Gaultier perfume bottle. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,247.50, from $2,495.

4. Sarah’s Bag Road Trip Embellished Clutch:icon Old-school postcard, anyone? While the station-wagon clasp says “hit the road,” the rest of this oversized clutch is all about air mail. The only thing missing is the stamp. On for $453, from $648.
