crazy clutches


As you know, I am all for an oversize clutch. But I've been thinking that a conversation-starting clutch may be in order, too! Inspired by the big statement bags going to and from the recent haute couture shows in Paris (below) and the kooky book-inspired totes spotted out and about on the streets (above), I reckon these unorthodox (and sometimes quirky) accessories will lend a fun (and labor-free) dose of pop to any outfit--even my boring basics. The best eye-catchers currently on the market include this graphic lucite clutch from Rafe, this perfume bottle-inspired bag by Charlotte Olympia (pictured below), this Pop Art Asos cheapie but goodie, this jewel box beauty by Kelly Wearstler, and the tome-like Olympia Le-Tan (I was an English major in college and wrote my senior thesis on Jane Eyre, so this seems quite appropriate!).

I am working on a book clutch (a la Olympia le Tan but in a less colourful way) for one of my fashion blogger friend! It is an awesome project, and your post is the last push to make it happen!
