In Clutches

 Clutches, clutches... oh how I love thee. Clutches are having a big moment right now, and honestly, it doesn't surprise me one bit. You see them all over the blogs, in the magazines, and runways. What used to be seen as more of an evening bag, is now an everyday, casual accessory. Plus, they have the added bonus of not adding a ton of weight on your shoulder. 

 A large shoulder bag would have killed the outfit pictured below. Certain outfits just call for a nice clutch. It looks more dainty and adds a bit of stylish elegance to an outfit. Though it should be noted, clutches can be worn with even the most casual of outfits. In fact, that is one of my favorite ways to wear them. 
Please excuse the doofy look on my face!

Another great thing about a clutch is that you can only carry as much as you can fit in a bag, which means eliminating unnecessary items you might otherwise be lugging around. I know one of my biggest annoyances is trying to sift through a huge million pound bag to find a lipstick or my keys, which are always hidden at the bottom. Also, some of the greatest clutches can be found at your local thrift store for just a few bucks! All but one of the clutches pictured here are vintage ones I found at various thrift stores.

So, if you're looking for an easy way to jazz up a casual button down with jeans, or need the perfect bag to go with your LBD, just grab a clutch, fill it with the essentials (lipstick, mirrored compact, money, license, keys... I think that covers it) and head out looking very chic and stylish!


  1. Love these clutches! Sadly though, I don't use them too often because I tend to carry quite a few items with me whenever I go out. haha

    If you have a sec, I would love to hear your thoughts on my latest:
