Or, she’s carrying a clutch by the suspiciously hip Olympia Le-Tan. (Le-Tan’s purse/book/boxes are sold at the Opening Ceremony boutique–in the Ace Hotel! She made a jacket for Paul Sevigny–in 2007!)

The Lolita mini-clutch costs $1,330 and is currently backordered. Meanwhile, a first edition of Lolita goes for $7000. One of these things is a much better investment than the other.
