How old does one have to be to carry Judith Leiber?

  1. I think the bejeweled evening bags the cutest darn things... I know a lot of women think they're strange and ugly, though. I want a peacock clutch! Like a little statue.

    I wonder how old one should before carrying this. It seems like something a more mature woman would be suited for, but might seem... pretentious? inappropriate? unbecoming? to a younger girl.
     
  2. you know, I just saw the all white crystal encrusted clutch evening bag and came this close to buying it. I think some of her things look a little older but some are quite cute! (the clutch was something like $2500.:amazed:
     
  3. The Judith Leiber plain crystal clutches will look good on a younger person, but the animal, fruit etc will look bizzare.
     
  4. yeah I liked the watermelon one too but what the hell would I wear with it?
     
  5. Used to sell them, and the crystals would routinely fall off. I do wish I'd gotten the minaudiere that looked like a stack of books. It was stunning, the price was lower than usual, and with my discount, it would have been slightly over $1,000. I think it was in the store about two hours before it was sold, and it was never returned like so many of the others.
     
  6. I think it really depends on the Judith Leiber. Some of them would work, others wouldn't. I think that a young person with a certain amount of attitude could probably pull off a seemingly 'older' piece, too.
     
  7. I do not think you need to be a certain age to carry a Judith Leiber bag. There are so many different shapes, colors, styles that you should just choose the one you like best. They are expensive so I can't see buying one that you don't like as much as another just because it fits the age you are at now. You will have that bag a lifetime. Pick the one you like best. There are also Judith Leiber bags for day. I just used mine this evening. I went out to dinner in Manhattan and wore brown suede pants with a silk sweater and dress boots and my Judith Leiber day bag. I got a lot of compliments on the bag.
     
  8. I do not think you have to be a certain age to carry a Judith Leiber bag. The bags are expensive and you will have it a lifetime, so you should get the one you like not settle for a style you think is more suited to the age you are at now. Judith Leiber also has day bags now that are very pretty. I used mine tonight. I went for dinner with friends in Manhattan. I wore brown suede pants with a silk sweater and brown dress boots and my Judith Leiber day bag. I got a lot of compliments on the bag. Here's a pic.

  9. sorry for the double post. I didn't see the first one go through. I thought it was deleted.:shame:
     
  10. Good point, Kat. Cute handle roll thingys, on your bag!
     
  11. I love the evening clutches! I don't know when or where I'd wear them, but I've decided that I must have one sooner or later. They look like such pieces of art to me. I'd just like to walk into the NY store and just stare at them (if that's possible?). They are exquisite...if I ever DID need an evening clutch for some fancy schmancy party, I'd definitely get one! But as I said, even if I didn't, I'd still get one once I've saved up enough. :biggrin:
     
  12. Definitely get the peacock clutch and I want pics!!:lol:
    It sounds really pretty.

    I think this type of bag depends more on your lifestyle than age.
    I'm considerably older than you but would have no use for a glittery little bag like this for evening because when I go out it's more casual. I may even be guilty of dressing a little younger at least in the accessories area.

    Your quote: "I wonder how old one should before carrying this. It seems like something a more mature woman would be suited for, but might seem... pretentious? inappropriate? unbecoming? to a younger girl."
    ...I would feel this way about someone very young carrying a Birkin or a Kelly bag.
     
  13. FYI - there is a Judith Leiber outlet in Woodbury Commons when you're ready.;)
     
  14. There is nothing classier than a Judith Leiber minaudiere. Many young actresses carry them at the Oscars.

    I love mine. I think of it as a work of art. You see them all over NYC at the ballet, etc.
     
  15. Oh wow! I never knew that...thanks so much! Have you been? How are the discounts on the clutches?
