From Candy Wrappers to Recycled Records, These Exotic Purses are Full of Flair

Every woman knows her handbag is the key to spicing up her outfit, and these crazy clutches go above and beyond the call of duty! Made from every imaginable material and truly limitless in design possibilities, these are no ordinary carryalls. Whether they are high-priced designer or upcycled works of art, (some are even made from trash bags!) a woman sporting one of these bags is destined to be the center of attention in a room of hundreds.

The bags displayed range in price from five dollars all the way to $780,000, but no matter the retail value, each one promises to command the room. As a vinyl collector, my personal favorite is the recycled record bag which is both a stellar accessory and a work of art.
