Clutch Lust

This utterly divine Celestina Abalone Clutch would set you back a measly $880 when it was for sale on Net-a-Porter (sold out now - booooo). So what is an enterprising young filly like me supposed to do when she NEEDS one?

Why, pop on her fancy diving gear, hop in the deep blue briny and get one for herself, of course. It would have totally complimented that outfit.

We actually got 10 of these in a dive over Christmas. They look awful, but are delicious when tenderised and done on the barbie in butter and garlic. Its was real treat as they are getting fished out in the waters at Yorkes because there is such high demand for them in asian markets.

FYI, no purse was actually borne of this underwater adventure. I think the shells got turned into ashtrays.

Classy.

I didn't know you could dive? I think I am the only person who is living in coastal WA who is truly terrified of even snorkeling! I probably would give it a go though if finding one of those bags was a sure hit... yum!

um that bag is so you!!! - and with the outfit? you could have given those young myer fashions on the field diva wannabes a run for their money last week!!!

they are super tasty - part of the best meal i have ever had in my life over at pt neill. Abalone, squid, and fish all caught that day on the bbq- mouth watering.... off to toast my tuna sandwhich for lunch - mouth dry and tacky.......
