Clutch-aholics Anonymous

I'm not much of a handbag person. For some odd reason I LOVE clutches. I have a couple and its just something that is so convenient and kind of completes the outfit without overpowering it. Sometimes when your handbag is soo faboosh it is all that you see and it just takes away from the outfit. I mean if you see a ton of celebrities carrying the birkin, your eyes directly go to the bag because, well duh it's a friggin birkin! So for a person, like me, that loves clothes more than handbags a clutch is perfect.

 This is my current collection. It isn't quite much but the lack in quantity is made up by the quality these clutches have. From the left that is a Marc Jacobs clutch in black, Marc Jacobs clutch in taupe and a Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch in pebbled leather in black.

 This was my first clutch ever and you can see it has a little wear and tear to it but it shows how much I love it dearly! Before this I just carried a wallet and stuffed it in my pocket or sometimes just stuffed my id, credit cards and cash into my pocket and it just became a hassle. This little clutch was so big enough to convert me to clutches. It's big enough to carry my wallet, touch up makeup and my old camera and iPhone but small enough where it didn't consume my whole outfit.
Then I went and got a Marc Jacobs which was larger in size because I was going through a big clutch phase. It's quite delicious and you can definitely feel the difference in quality between a Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch and a Marc Jacobs clutch. That is why I splurged and got one in taupe and black.

I am a big fan of Marc Jacobs and that is why I always look at his stuff when I want to buy a clutch.

 Hence this little beauty. It is a Marc by Marc Jacobs Bianca clutch and it just came out in department stores. The reason why I love this specific clutch so much is because of this picture:

I loved this picture the moment I laid my eyes on it. Although you don't see the woman's face in this picture you can tell she has class and style from what she is carrying. This was taken during fashion week and I love how boxy this tan clutch is and is being stacked together with fashion week programs. I am yearning for this clutch!

Instead of fashion programs I can see myself carrying this beautiful clutch with my Moleskine plain journal, a novel or Vogue magazines and of course my fingers would be perfectly manicured.

I also love this Celine pouch clutch! The simplistic clutch that can look great in any color.

American Apparel does the same exact pouch for a lot cheaper (there are smaller sizes as well!) but personally nothing beats a Celine or Marc Jacobs clutch!

  2. I can see why you love that Bianca Marc Jacobs clutch. I'm not a clutch person (I'm prone to leaving things places if they aren't tied to my person) but this looks so pretty, I almost wish it came with a little shoulder strap...
