A minaudière is a women’s fashion accessory, generally considered a jewelry piece, intended to substitute for an evening bag. It allows storage for several items in a small space, such as a makeup compact, lipstick, watch or keys… Bonne Amie Boutique offers clutches in every fabric imaginable, but we adore the sequined fabrics lined with classic black cotton.
