Our wallets can’t handle it, but if you have the budget of a celebrity, be sure to visit Gilt Groupe Wednesday at noon ET for a very special sale. Designer Brian Atwood — he of the awesome, celeb-loved shoes (and he who just happens to be best friends with Melissa McCarthy) — created several small, red carpet-worthy handbags exclusively for the site.

There are four styles: the Carla ($1,285-$1,385), a basic envelope clutch available in a mix of colors and materials like black suede and color-blocked snakeskin; the Theodora and Iside ($1,795-$1,850), both hard-case minaudieres made of inlayed enamel; and the Kate (price to come), made of leopard-print pony hair. According to a release, the collection was created “to take a woman from the most glamorous event to a dinner at a small sidewalk café.”

“They are expensive,” Atwood admits to WWD. “But they are gorgeous.”
