The Duchess has carried the gold glitter Charlie clutch by Wilbur & Gussie on several occasions.
Wilbur & Gussie describes Charlie as “Wilbur & Gussie’s signature best-selling envelope clutch bag. It comes in a variety of elegant silks and glitters, and is finished with a jewel-encrusted brooch. It’s the perfect clutch for any formal occasion.”
The specifications for a Charlie clutch are:
- Brooch (design depends on the material of the bag & colour)
- Optional wrist strap
- Inner pocket
- Magnetic Fastening
- Dust bag included
- 21cm x 12cm
Thoughts: I was gifted the black glitter Charlie clutch. I squeal when I first saw the Wilbur & Gussie dustbag!
There was more squealing when I saw the sparkles…even though its black glitter, the glitter still catches the light so there’s a slight sparkle effect. The round jewelled encrusted brooch is gorgeous!!
However, this bag is extremely delicate. Probably because of the glitter. The bag lost several glitter in transit.
And when I touched it, my fingers would occasionally get some of the glitter…
The edges seem to have already worn out and I havent even used the clutch yet!
The size of the clutch is just right for an evening bag. Not too big and not too tiny that you can’t place anything inside. My Samsung Galaxy SII fits in and there’s space for tissues and keys! That’s in addition to a tiny wallet and lipstick.
Verdict: The glitter and brooch are so pretty. Am tempted to buy more just for the brooches. However, I think I shall stick to less delicate items.
