A red carpet evening bag for $30?

Kate Walsh emerged from her town car at the 61st annual Primetime Emmy Awards in a beautiful J. Mendel Crystal Blue Hand Pleated Mousseline Strapless Gown with Soft Draping, Stephen Russell 18kt yellow gold and diamond earrings and vintage bracelets and...get this: A $30 Aldo clutch!

Talk about keeping it real! Don't you just love her? I do. I actually really love the clutch itself, too! It's rose gold faux snakeskin and looks as rich as a Judith Leiber or a Nancy Gonzalez! It comes in silver and gold, one size fits all and if you're a vegan, it's perfection because it’s synthetic! Classic, timeless and chic. Buy two!
