small handbag (400x400)When you hit the town with your friends, it is cumbersome to lug around a big handbag on your journey. Handbags tend to take away from your outfit and feel like a burden to carry while dining, dancing or just standing around chatting. You can trade that bag in for a stylish minaudiere to bring along your essentials without the help of a clunky bag. The minaudiere is essentially a jeweled clutch that acts as a beautiful accompaniment to your shoes, outfit and jewelry. Despite its gorgeous appearance, you do not need to spend a lot for one of these priceless accessories. Here are five places to net a great deal.


This black and silver clutch from Macy’s features dozens of studs that look like sparkling diamonds from afar. The black polyester material provides the perfect background for the glimmering studs. Silver accents all around, including a 12 inch chain strap, beautifully contrast the rest of the design. The inside of the clutch features black satin material for a soft touch. Grab it now for just $19.99.

Nordstrom Rack

Complement your look with this shimmering clutch from Nordstrom Rack for a modern twist. The outside of the bag features a snakeskin pattern engraved in the shiny silver metal material. Delicious adornments, such as a chain strap and kiss lock, make this case stand out above the rest. The inside is lined with black polyester for a stylish appearance. The case is marked down more than 50% to a low price of $29.97.

Vinici Fashion

Bring your look back to the 20s with this amazing flapper styled minauderie from Vinici Fashion. Rows and rows of tiny metal studs act as the focal point of this rectangular case’s design. Complement your outfit with one of three different colors: gold, silver and pewter. You can carry this clutch in your hand or use the included chain strap for a hands free look. You may be able to discount the current price of $29.99 even more by inputting the promo code VENICI10 at checkout.


A rounded case from Boscov’s gives this clutch some curves that the other options lack. The exterior of the case is covered in incredibly tiny black beads that reflect the light and give this case pop art appeal. Silver accents along the edges come up to a circular clasp that acts as the focal point of this piece. You will only spend $36.00, down from $48.00, to add this piece to your collection.


Despite a lack of jeweled accents, this minaudiere from Sears looks just as elegant as the traditionally designed clutches. The black lace print lies over metallic tones lined in gold accents. The flat profile of this hard case is easy to carry in your hand while still managing to hold all of your belongings with ease. In fact, the interior features several interior pockets to keep your makeup, money and ID cards organized through hours of dancing. You can grab this closeout clutch for yourself for just $18.99 while supplies last.
