Clutch

The "clutch" style handbag has exprienced a return to popularity recently, and while seemingly impractical they can look great for daytime and and don't have to be kept purely for evening wear.

starting from top right:  sachi black clutch with silver handle, portmans red snake print Ipad Case, diana ferrari black patent leather clutch, vintempo black and white polkla dot clutch and black and silver envelope clutch from myer.

I originally just owned the soft patent leather Diana Ferrari clutch which I would use for weddings and other special occasions, however I have recenlty been converted to carrying a day time clutch and initially added the  Portmans Red Pouch (really an Ipad Case), with the others somehow making their way into my closet more recently:)

I rarely use them on works days, as I really do need more carry space on those days, but I am using them more and more on non work days and finding it strangely liberating to not carry everything but the kitchen sink in my handbag.  The only complaint is my from Mr Stylish Murmurs when his wallet and keys don't fit in my purse!


an assortment of recent outfits features 'the daytime clutch!  

If you need more reasons why you should be giving the daytime clutch a try, check out Angie Cox at You Look Fab and her  Seven Reasons to Carry a Daytime Clutch .

  1. I carry too much stuff for clutchess for as you said for evening and for special occasions they are the best choices because they look so elegant.
    I love your red and the pot-a-dotted one.

  5. Very chic. I use a daytime clutch as well, either on its own or inside a medium tote bag for when I am "on the go".

  7. Wow I love your clutch collection. I need to get me some of those! The unpracticalness of them still prevents me from buying any....
