    Have you had enough with the glitter yet? Good, us either. We know it's a slippery slope to disco-ball land, when it comes to piling on the sparkle and bling, prepping for festive soirees, but we're working on exercising restraint with shimmer this year.

    And luckily, we found something special to keep shinin' all year long, in the chicest possible way. Enter, Edie Parker's collection of acrylic clutches that are as much an investment accessory as any statement earring or legion of shiny stacked bangles. Available in pearlescent pouches, glitter-packed chevrons, and endearing hearts-and-stars patterns, the Edie Parker spring '12 lookbook boasts designs that once accompanied showgirls and socialites, but still pack a punch of modern-day charm. We wont sugar coat it, these tiny treasures come with a pretty hefty price tag ($895-$1,395) — thanks to the fact that each unique piece is handmade — but each piece is special enough to find a comfy home among your most prized wardrobe essentials. And hey, these are the kinds of pieces can break out for any occasion worth a little extra sparkle.
