Amanda Pearl “Samira” Clutch — As Seen On Gossip Girl!
This week on Gossip Girl, the Upper East Side’s most calculating princess, Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester), took a break from her luxurious Nancy Gonzalez bags, her houndstooth Moschino wristlets, and her sleek Dior frame purses, and instead opted for a pristine, dainty clutch with a vintage feel. To accessorize a sleeveless, floral print evening dress with a voluminous, bustle-like skirt and a fitted bodice, Blair Waldorf chose the Amanda Pearl “Samira” clutch (pictured above).
The “Samira” clutch features a chartreuse green and slate gray print, a dainty gold plated kisslock, and a slim silhouette, with rounded edges and an intricately embellished frame that curves upwards slightly like a crescent moon. Beaded by hand in Italy, the bag’s frame showcases an array of semi-precious stones like labradorite, lime jade, Czech crystals and freshwater pearls.
Now that Blair has left the headbands behind and embraced her collegiate status (however precociously), her style has also matured and become a bit more sophisticated — if a bit muted at times, it’s sleek, polished, and always classy. The Amanda Pearl Samira clutch underlines Blair’s elite social status without being ostentatious, making it the perfect accessory for an NYC princess.
