The way I see a woman’s handbag and her clutch is different.
To me, a handbag should be functional; it reflects the user’s personality and her life style. As for a clutch, I see it and treat it as a piece of jewellery – it’s the ‘icing on the cake’ to the ensemble; it’s the jewel that ‘pops’ our outfit!
With that in mind, there’s no surprise that most of the clutches I have, are either beaded or metallic – think jewellery – that is until recently…
Lately I have fallen in love with the envelope clutch… The ‘X-factor’ about an envelope clutch is, it combines the old time charm (Let’s face it! You and I hardly write letters any more!) and the modern look; in which, the envelope clutch is thin; sharp and smart looking.
Because of this old charm/cool look combination; it makes the envelope clutch quirky and chic!
Right now I’m obsessed by my red envelope clutch; it’s a new addition to my other clutches. It doesn’t shine like a piece of jewellery, but it does stand out among other bling-bling.
