Rafe is somewhat new to our site. Thanks to some loyal readers, one in particular ;-), we have become more aware of Rafe recently. But for many of the bags I saw (which probably were not the best), something was always missing. I was never drawn right away to them. Until now that is. This Rafe Donegal Tweed Frame Clutch was love at first sight. Seriously, I am in love. Luckily when I fly down to Florida and the Bahamas next week, I plan on doing some shopping- and this little number is for sure on the list! If you shoulder is tired from being the only carrier of beautiful lush bags, why not buy a clutch for that beautiful hand of yours. I'm sure your hand will thank you if you get this baby. Showing off 'rich wool with metallic threading and suede piping trim', the Rafe clutch could just make me drool. How could you resist the contrast stitching, nickel hardware, frame top, and the two outside snap pockets with woven buttons?? For your convenience there is a hidden chain shoulder strap and inside zipper and open pockets. This clutch measures 6"H X 13"L X 3"W. For a not too shabby $275 via Saks, this bag could make you a hit this fall!
If you think you could match this clutch with some cute shoes, try the Rafe Marylebone Donegal Wool” Valerie" Rounded High Heels! That’d be super swanky n' sassy! Buy them via Rafe for $252.
Megs, I love how you fell in love with this bag! Unfortunately, Rafe was hit and miss this season. The weird stuff they did with crocoleather and fur was ugly ugly! But fortunately this line, and the Carnegie line are amazing.
I just wated to make sure that you posted the right matching shoes, the ones in your post are black, here are the blue ones:
Sorry, Megs, I should have known that you were just trying to display the different color - but I just don't like this line in the black/brown, it looks so much cuter with the blue trim!
I love matching shoes, they make any purse look 20x better. I do think Rafe puts way too high of a price tag on his shoes, though. And they always go on sale. So I usually have to wait a few months to get my matching shoes.
