In the summer months, we prefer to keep our accessories low-maintenance and casual by ditching oversized caryalls in favor of small day clutches and colorful pouches. These have just enough room to hold the necessities—an iPhone, lip gloss, sunglasses, and a credit card—and are perfect for both summer getaways and weekends in the city.
Any handbag fiend will tell you: there's a definite distinction between day purses and night purses. The two are friends but they are different. The former tends to be bigger and more functional. The latter, like this Vintage Red Canvas Wristlet Clutch, has just enough room for your lipgloss, cell phone and credit card.
The great thing about this vintage red one is that it's vibrant enough where you can keep the rest of your outfit unfussy. Carry it with a fabulous LBD and you'll look anything but simple.
The current bidding price is at $7.99 and the auction ends on Friday, August 24. Good luck and happy bidding!
Gorgeous! OC_Fashionista fab found this Jimmy Choo Mave Leather Clutch, $900, and for that I am thankful because it is definitely the bag to have. There are so many good things about this mini Jimmy. It's cobalt blue; it's a combination of a clutch and a wrislet; and it folds over unlike any other small bag out there. Who knew a little bag could have such a multifaceted personality?!
I've always avoided the small leather goods known as wristlets because of the somewhat silly name. But I finally road-tested (or, should I say, club-tested) one of these wallets-plus-wrist-strap during my Friday night out with the girls. Now I understand the wonders of these accessories, which are sort of like utilitarian and harder-to-lose clutches. You can hang the wallet from your wrist when you're out on the town, then just toss it in your purse for everyday use. Here are some of my favorite finds at designer and non-designer prices.
Chloe Paddington Mini, $530, available in two colors here.
Coach Legacy Two-Toned Framed Wristlet, $148, available in four colors here.
Betsey Johnson Handbags Disco Betsey Wristlet, $98.95, available in two colors here.
