This Mary Frances Accessories Pick Up the Pieces Clutch ($257, #1 in pic) is very magpie, but in a good way - it's as though some fabulously fashionable grandmother gifted a designer with her vintage jewelry collection, and said designer went to town on a basic box clutch. But $257 is a lot of cash, no? This equally fun TopShop Embellished Box Bag ($135, #2 in pic) is cheaper, but still pricey for a bag we wouldn't trot out too often, for fear of losing sequins and spangles on the street. Quite frankly, we're tempted to pick up a plain, basic Lulu Townsend Satin Box Clutch for $30, hit up a thrift store for jewelry, grab our glue guns and have a bedazzling party.
