I've done something that has really surprised me. More than that what I've done has surprised anyone who has known me for a significant amount of time. I have retired my oversized handbags, temporarily at least. I have become a huge fan of the everyday clutch. What a novel idea, right? A clutch as an everyday bag makes sense for so many reasons. They transition so well and they are a much better conversation piece than my oversized, shoulder-breaking, countless number of satchels and totes (which I do still love but won’t be carrying any time soon). It took me no time at all to realize I don't need my medicine cabinet, back-up supply of snacks, extra hygiene products and anything else I could think of and never use with me every time I left the house.
My plan is to invest in a number of everyday clutches that are reasonably priced and slightly glam (but not over-the-top) that add some fun to an otherwise simple look. I used to save my clutch bags for a girls’ night on the town, New Year’s Eve or other special occasions. Not anymore. I love the idea of carrying a smaller bag during the day, and not just a cross body. My cute, little clutch is another way I am breaking up my 9-to-5 look and adding a pop of glam. It’s a perfect finishing touch.
I have been scouring the web looking for my "next ideal" everyday clutch. I prefer those with hand straps on the back. Score more points if the clutch is a fold over.
