When heading out for a night on the town, the question of safety always comes to mind. Every woman has their secret weapon (pepper spray, stiletto heels) but the key lies in something that’s easily concealed within a cute outfit. Which is where this sparkly clutch from Nine West comes into play: it could easily double as brass knuckles. And even if protecting yourself through fashion isn’t your first priority, we still think this clutch is really cool.
$85. Available at Nine West, 93 Bloor Street West, 416-920-3519
