When I was a kid, I had some see-through toys with multi-colored goop inside them. The goop could be swirled into pretty patterns. That must be why this gel-filled PVC clutch by Christopher Kane speaks to me.
This purse could be just what I need to entertain myself during less-than-scintillating dinner parties. And that thought reminds me of the Elly Awards, where Arianna Huffington talked about how important a good night’s sleep was to her. She pointed out how often successful men brag about how little sleep they get each night. At one dinner, a big shot told her that he only had four hours sleep the night before. She thought (but unfortunately didn’t say), “Too bad. If you’d gotten five hours maybe this evening would be more interesting.”
love this bag!
I love this bag too.
I hate machismo crap like the guy in the story. It’s american “gotta push the limit” attitudes like that which have limited us to a few measly weeks of vacation a year and having to look at our email 24/7, even on vacation.
I hadn’t even thought about that until she said it…I just accepted it as true…you should work all the time and never sleep! There must have been a little light bulb visible over my head while Arianna was speaking.
I love Arianna! She is my hero!

Less than scintillating dinner parties are the only kind I know. I am without fail always put next to the dullest, dimmest man in town and my hubby always gets the oldest & deafest woman in Christendom. The only laugh we get is on the way home bitching about it! I need a super-sized version of that bag.

Sulky’s comment about her hubby always sitting next to the “oldest and deafest woman in Christendom” cracked me up. Don’t let her get her claws on that bag though or you’ll have the insides leaking out of punctures!
I was laughing too! But at one event I really did sit next to a 92-year-old man, and was screaming into his ear all night.

The bag looks cool, but I wonder what it feels like. It reminds me of kid’s toys. It also kind of reminds me of those glass panes with the colorful sand and liquid that you flip over and they swirl around. It would definitely give you something to do at least!
Also not sleeping enough can make your brain act like it’s drunk – sleep fatigue sucks, I should know I ran on 4 hours a night max in high school and ran myself down so quickly I was frequently sick/exhausted. No more!
Oh my God I love that!
If you like this, check out this Barbie-themed bling. I’m obsessed with it. My DH bought me a diamond one as a wedding gift and silver ones for all my bridesmaids.
Aww. This reminded me of those oil/liquid stickers from the 1980s. The ones that were always green and blue and shaped like a unicorn or heart.
I think he did dresses like this too, but the bag ROCKS! Love
I love that clutch. It has the same appeal for me as bubblewrap – I love popping those little bubbles. At least squishing this bag won’t deflate it.

I would hug and squeeze that purse and name it George 😛
