You can feel much better about the double dip recession with this on trend fiorelli snakeskin clutch, (comes with shoulder strap) from asos for 28 gbp, comes in under $60 nzd with free shipping.
Closer to home and lighter on the pocket K Mart has this snakeskin clutch at $17 (Ditch the cheap looking chain). Check out the miu miu limited edition range for inspiration!!
