Isn’t she lovely? Jessica Simpson’s gotten things oh so right with this So Lovely Clutch Purse.
The So Lovely’s design is very simple, which might be why it’s so endearing. Jessica Simpson has been guilty of over-embellishing many of her handbags, so it’s refreshing to see one that’s more reserved. A golden bar cinches in chocolate brown leatherette, revealing the fawn colored material underneath. The effect looks a little like a bow, with its pretty pleats. It’s a gorgeous interpretation of the colorblocked style, subtle but still eye-catching.
I’m less enthused about the snake printed alternative. The scales are so busy that the pleats get lost in all the mottling. It’s also not a very convincing mimic, so unlike the matte leatherette the material appears just as cheap as its price tag suggests. I’m all for maintaining the illusion of opulence!
The So Lovely is quite small but it’s well organized, with a slip pocket and quartet of card slots. Those slots are particularly impressive as we don’t risk scratching the magnetic strips on our credit cards. A zippered pocket for coins would have come in handy, but we can’t expect too much for this price.
At just $58 this pretty Jessica Simpson clutch is just as lovely as its name suggests!
