Tidbit about me: I’m a china collector. I actually collect it for friends; Kelly has a nice set from Tiffany’s I sent her every birthday and Christmas piece by piece (when she started receiving them, she asked, “What are you, my grandmother?” lol). I love a good China pattern! But never thought I’d love it on a bag. Until I saw this limited-edition box clutch from Kotur: Fiona hit the mark perfectly!
It resembles precious porcelain in a way that’s not kitschy or overboard. The vintage brocade fabric, in such a classic color combination, is sweet but not too dainty. And it’s the perfect fit for a bold adornment. The bright-red silken tassel makes a strong statement, delightfully throwing off the scale of this itty-bitty minaudiere.
What makes it a true blue valentine? Not only does it have a semi-precious stone clasp and a crystal ball chain, it’s got a saucy surprise: a pair of “hot lips.” That’s the kiss-off for the latest addition to my China collection. At Kotur for $450.
