So. I realize I talk about handbags and shoes quite a bit. As exhibited here. It's my vice so bear with me. (most are dream wish lists and what's a blog if not an escape, right people?!) Anyway...back to the situation at hand.
I'm sure you are in the throws of holiday parties like me. Today, for example, I have meetings in the city which means I carry my work tote all day. When the clock strikes 5 o'clock I have to gracefully pull a switch-a-roo into party attire and look flawless while doing it. Not an easy feat.
This is where the tote does not work. You can't carry that mega carry-all around all night with your glass of prosecco. This does not evoke "graceful" either. Instead, I've rounded up five fabby clutches to stash your lipstick and credit cards while you get your mingle on!
one | santi: Crimson is the hue of the moment and this clutch maximizes color and texture in the most delightful way. In fact, all of the Santi bags are party-ready. Watch the wallets ladies, it's dangerous in there!
two | loeffler randall: You need a metallic clutch, period. I adore this envelope style for its simple closure and crackled finish. Plus it fits every-so-nicely under your delicate little arm. Ahem.
three | pour la victoire: Join the chain gang with this awesome python cross body bag. It you have to double fist prosecco due to long lines at the bar...this is the bag to do it with. Bonus: the paint flecks make for interesting conversation and there's a handy back pocket for more storage...like your keys!
four | michael kors collection: It's the James Bond of clutches. Small, sleek with gold tone plates. I think it screams sophistication and it's fuchsia...what's not to love? This would be sexy for NYE, no?
five | alice + olivia: A+ for the bead work and wrinkled leather details. This reminds me of my favorite statement necklace in the form of a clutch. This is your statement piece and while you may not fit much due to its dainty size; she sure is a pretty one. Plus, cream clutches are unexpected, you little trendsetter, you!
Happy shopping! xo
