The Vintage Version: Transparent Clutches

Spring is coming soon and I've been looking at the collections again, there are so many pretty things! As usual, there are lots of styles derived from vintage inspiration.  When I saw these transparent clutches from Valentino, I instantly thought of the 1950's Lucite versions. If you don't mind everyone seeing what's inside your bag, these are a fun accessory to carry!

You can find vintage versions of these in antique shops and online for a hundred or so dollars as opposed to a thousands of dollars for the runway version.  Here are a few I found: 1, 2, 3.
This one is a completely different shape, but I love it, and we have this similar one in our shop.
