vermont jacket by paige. ella moss dress. vintage clutch. nine west wedges.
i am unabashedly crazy about clutches. men will never understand why women carry purses with no straps or handles. sometimes i don’t understand myself when i take one to the grocery store and end up sticking it like a newspaper under my armpit because i lack free hands.
i bought my first clutch in college; it was an oversized lavender leather via spiga found on deep discount at tj maxx. then i got into thrifting beaded evening clutches and anything else that enchanted me. on saturday morning, i found the ombre-embroidered bag for five dollars and thanked my lucky stars. she’s the perfect spring and summer clutch, and i can’t wait to pass her on to my future daughter (way in the future, mind you).
i wish i could sew a similar clutch but i lack the tremendous patience and needlepoint skills. however i can do one thing— carry it.
