Real vs. Steal – Alexander McQueen Britannia Union Jack Skull Box Clutch

by Irina on June 2, 2013

I have yet to understand the practical use of minaudière clutches, but I must admit they sure look pretty being carried around so elegantly on the red carpet (and off, too, as perfectly shown by Dita von Teese and Christina Aguilera below). Being the avid Alexander McQueen fan that I am, I’ve always had a soft spot for the pocket-sized skull box clutches and found this iconic Britannia Union Jack Skull Box Clutch to be particulary fabulous! The Union Jack flag design is an absolute eyecatcher and such a bold statement piece! Just imagine how great this little clutch bag would look against an all-black outfit! If I had a spare $1.695 and wouldn’t know what to do with it, this is where my money would go.

Unfortunately though, I do not have a spare $1.695 lying around and unfortunately I do have lots of ideas how to put such money to better use than to spend it on a fist-sized baggie thing. However, if you’re still wanting a similar style without spending your (future?) child’s college fund on it, here’s a great look-a-like option by BagInc that will give you the same look for a whole lot less money. Clearly, it’s not the same quality as McQueen, but all the details are there and the price of $46 ain’t too bad either (make sure to use our exclusive promo code to save an extra 10%!).
