My Alien Handbag

Well, I did say I would post a photo of my ludicrously impractical evening bag from T K Maxx. It is by Bulaggi, which appears to be a Dutch brand, and on their website I found one heart shaped sparkly clutch-style bag, which could loosely qualify as a minaudiere...

Mine is made of a satin fabric, however, and is unembellished. It looks more like an exotically coloured alien insect than anything as remotely functional as a bag. Check out that proboscis strap!

As for the curious sphere on top - which is in fact the bag's small concession to glitz! - it looks somewhere between a cherry, a child's spangly hair bobble, and a 70s disco ball.
