You might clutch at straws, I clutch at handbags baby!

My daytime handbag is huge, there could be small children trapped in there and I wouldn't know anything about it.  At night however I like to be a little more footloose and fancy free with a handsome man on one arm (I mean my husband of course) and a bag big enough for a lipstick and compact on the other!  This is why I love me a clutch.  In every style, shape and colour imaginable, there is a clutch out there for everyone.  Granted, there are some god awful ugly ones - anything by Judith Leiber comes to mind - sorry Judith, but I have to agree with Carrie on this one, that was a terrible gift for Big to give her. Or the 2008 'It' clutch from Burberry that brought fugly to new levels.  But I'm here to tell you that there are lots of lovely ones out there too.  Here are some of my faves this year:
The Gigi small clutch from Nine West - this sequin covered beauty is actually on sale right now for $65!
Michael Kors Webster clutch in Amethyst - love the gold hardware! $148 US.

Jeanne Lottie and I couldn't pick just one, so here are my top 3:  Snakeskin clutch and it has the most adorable pink lining! $80, Ruffle clutch what can I say, it has ruffles! $100, Evening clutch and it comes in 4 colours $55.

A present from fellow Canadian Jeanne Lottie would make a great present for the vegan fashionista on your list - her bags are all made from non-animal materials!

  1. I heart Michael kors! I'm saving up for a leather jacket by him. The clothes is always full of class.

    *drool* too bad I can't afford the clutch too.

  2. I so agree with you - I want that bag! I consoled myself by buying the Nine West one, it is on sale afterall!
    Best, Lisamarie
