While we can't exactly remember what President's Day is, we're thanking past POTUSes for giving us the day off. Get in the car, we're going shopping. Mean Girls ref aside, there's nothing like some free time to hit the boutiques (as long as they're not closed, too), and, when it comes to Miami browsing, the first destination tends to be Marni....a lot.
Among the spring '12 merch recently calling the Design Distric flagship home, we spotted this "Grey" clutch, a small work of art that we think is an intelligent investment. No day bag here—save this mini-masterpiece for gallery openings (naturally), glam cocktails, and a little high-end table dancing. We're way into the signature Marni details— overlapping geometric spirals made up of spiked cylinders topped with silvery glass beads cover a silk base, itself attached to soft black calfskin. And that zip-pull ensures you'll never lose hold of your brand-new buy, while giving you the perfect angle for maximum dangle (read: eye-catching exposure). Like all good art, let admirers look...but please, no touching. And no, girls, this ain't Marni for H&M.
"Grey" Clutch, $600, available at Marni.com and Marni; 3930 NE 2nd Avenue (between NW 49th and NW 50th streets); Suite 100; 305-764-3357.
