New Year’s parties are just around the corner and if you’re sticking to basic black for your outfit, a red lips clutch are a good choice to add a pop of fun and color. The question is, when it comes to a lips clutch, should you spend or save?
I won’t say Lulu Guinness originated the lips clutch but she has certainly made the design famous. Her lips come in patent leather, snakeskin and covered in Swarovski crystals. The Lulu Guinness metallic snakeskin lips will run you $380, while Sephora’s sequined lips cost just $20.
My initial reaction is to save. As cute as the lips clutch is, it’s not a piece I would pull out more than a few times per year. On the other hand, Lulu Guinness has made her name on quirky designs and the lips are her best-known so it would be kind of neat to own an original.
What do you think? Spend or save?
