Good things have been happening at Halston Heritage ever since Sarah Jessica Parker stepped in. The line has honed its signature streamlined style to a razor-sharp edge. Case in point? This Halston Heritage Susan Evening Clutch ($235, #1 in pic). It distills a flashy sequined evening clutch into something refined, but still fabulous. Haven't got $235 to spare on a glorified change purse? Snap up this Carlo Felini Metal Mesh Clutch ($48) instead. The lines aren't exactly the same, and there's no oil-slick iridescent finish, but the simple details are enough to set this inexpensive counterpart apart from fellow cheap bags.
