Who else was watching the Emmys last night? Total tradish to get together with friends, cook up an Italian feast, and talk during most of the ceremony describing which shows rule (my faves Homeland & Breaking Bad!), which shows don’t rule (I’m taking the 5th on that one!), and who was wearing it totally right!
I thought Zooey Deschanel looked stunning in Reem Acra…
…and Kat Dennings crimson J Mendel was insane.
I totally loved Kerry Washington’s Vivienne Westwood dress too…
…and was even more obsessed with her lizard Kotur clutch!
(Thanks to my gal AK who pointed it out on the carpet and knew I’d love!) I just couldn’t have been more into that perfectly paired accessory, so I decided I’d get on the DIY train for this piece immediately!
I began with my Judith Lieber clutch, already in my collection.
It had a similar pinkish/gold hue and would be just the base for this clutch remake!
I scored a little quartet of plastic lizards in the toy section of the drug store…
…and used the orange one as my little “Liz Khalifa” – what Kerry actually called her lizard after a shout-out asking what to name it on Twitter!
I did a quick spray with Caramel Latte and then followed with Copper Metallic…
…before letting my little guy dry! He’s so cute!!
I don’t want to permanently affix Liz to my clutch, so I’m going the Velcro route! However, use E6000, Gorilla Glue, or Aleene’s Turbo Tacky Glue which will help anything stick longer than a day!
I snipped little pieces and attached to the bottom of the lizard and directly onto the outside of the clutch. Finished product??? BAM!!
I love my clutch! It’s totally channeling Kerry’s Kotur version!
She had the perfect hand accessory…
…and now, so do I!
