Furry, scary love

It's no secret that I've been a huge fan of Alexander McQueen for years. His untimely death I found to be extremely upsetting, not only because of the sheer tragedy but also because I had a feeling that the fashion house would either dissolve or it would never be the same from a stylistic perspective. Thank goodness Sarah Burton is keeping the design and idea of raw McQueen ideals alive.

I don't think I ever would have expected Lee McQueen himself to make something bordering on fluffy. This was pure Sarah.

McQueen came up with his skull clutches before Sarah Burton took over. While I don't own one yet -- although I know I must in the near future -- this particular style caught my eye and it has been top of mind for months and months.

This amazing clutch did go on sale at Saks, but sadly I missed it before it sold out. It's still available (unfortunately still full price) at Neiman Marcus.

Ah, someday.
