I simply cannot forget that infamous episode of Sex and the City when Mr. Big gave Carrie a Judith Leiber “Swan” clutch. Back then, it was probably not as hip for a young, sexy, and on-trend New York gal to carry to an upper east side stuffy cocktail.  BUT, seems Mr. Big kinda knew what he was doing, because that was then, and this is now! (Check out Instagram @judithleiberny #NotYourMothersLeiber!) Think Sex and the City, the movie, when Charlotte’s adorable daughter Lily managed to single-handedly sabotage the most important conversation a bride could’ve had with her groom right before her wedding?! GASP!! However, the true scene stealer was that ridiculously delightful Judith Leiber “Strawberry Cupcake” clutch in all its pink and gold sparkling glory! Rumor has it (according to my unnamed Judith Leiber boutique insider), the one in the movie was modified to be a tad taller – in order for Carrie’s blinged out cell phone to fit!  Take a look at the below pictures to see for yourself! It’s totally true! Definitely a tad more icing on Lily’s version right? LOL!

My very own lovable Judith Leiber “Cake” clutch is equally captivating, and each time I whip it out, I can’t help but smile. It’s not only a conversation starter, but a terrific light reflector in dimly lit date-night romantic restaurants with my Tubby. Paired with my Valentino Haute Couture dress (which I purchased ~4 years ago), and my blue Prada sandals (purchased ~4 years ago from Nordstrom, South Coast Plaza – thanks again to ROBI, my devoted savior of size 4.5 designer shoes)…this high-fashion look is a perfect outfit to wear to St.Regis NYC high-tea, or Peninsula, Hong Kong high-tea!

Now don’t get me wrong, a Judith Leiber couture clutch is definitely a luxury investment, but the pure decadence of owning one is analogous to that kind-of dreamy experience of staring down a huge glass display full of cakes and diamonds at your favorite dessert cafe.  I literally want them all!  So BLING IT ON and enjoy the rest of my outfit pics!  Thanks always for your support!
