The Clutch

20 Aug

I love the idea of a clutch bag.  They remind me of a couple of things – the 70’s …and Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw.  Both of which have influenced my style a lot.  (I would wear Farrah’s outfit (above) head to toe today)

Perhaps it’s because I’m petite (ie under 5ft 4), but I like the idea of not being swamped by or having to lug around, a big oversized bag, instead having something small that I can hold in my hand (like Amal did here and Meghan did here) or tuck under my arm. (Like so).

I’ve collected a few over the years.  There’s this one, a birthday gift from my family, this one I found at The Mill Market in Geelong, and this one I bought from a vintage store in Paris.

While I tend not to use them much during my day to day, the first chance I get to pull one out and use it for a night out or a day at the races, I do.

Florsheim (the iconic shoe company that’s been around since 1892) recently gave me this lovely fold over clutch from their Zizi range (yep, they also do great bags), and I thought rather than keep it for myself, that I’d pass it on to one of you.

As I’ve mentioned before, a new bag can instantly jazz up some of the old pieces in your wardrobe and transform an outfit from casual to dressy or day to night – just like a pair of shoes can.  I encourage all of my clients to think about building a handbag collection – just like a shoe collection.

To have a chance to add this lovely little bag to your wardrobe, all you need to do is book in and work with me between today (Monday 20 August) and Saturday 22 September and you’ll go in the draw to win it.   I’ll (randomly) pick the winner on 23 September – my birthday.

The best thing about this little bag is that it has a handle so you can carry like this…

or fold it over and carry it like this…

It’s made in Italy of buttery soft calf leather and valued at $199.
