Happy New Year Y’all! I know some of you might still be digging out after some pretty serious winter storms over the past month, but we are in the throes of our own blizzard here in Middle America.
You can only imagine what I do when it’s cold and snowy outside and my kids are home from school for the third time since they went back after their holiday break. Yep, virtual window shopping. Nothing brings me more joy than filling up virtual shopping carts all over the Internet. Well, checking out would actually be pretty joyful but not to my bank balance.
Today, my favorite thing is this Clare Vivier foldover clutch. Part of the reason I love it is because I have already taken another one for a test drive. I actually own the same Clare V. clutch in black leather with laser-cut pinholes on the part that actually folds over. It is a little rock ‘n roll and a lot versatile. I use it almost exclusively when I go out for a non-cocktail or formal affair.
But this particular Clare V. foldover clutch is drool-worthy. The tan snake print is actually embossed on leather and the bold navy and red stripes are done in suede. I love that it gives an otherwise “going out” bag a sporty vibe – not to mention a “Gucci” one at that! And since it’s in mostly brown neutrals, it’s perfect for a whole other segment of my wardrobe that is not as well-paired with my black one. I’m already envisioning this cute clutch with my navy-flowered embroidered jeans and some sweet suede sandals. Now if we could only bring on spring!
I’ve been shopping far more than I’ve been writing, so it’s high time I share. Don’t you think?
Anyway, I was on the hunt for something. I can’t even remember what, but came across an entire page of truly delicious clutches at The Outnet. At first, I was going to post the one I liked best. But there were so many, I couldn’t decide.
So here’s a gaggle of the gorgeousness I found yesterday. And yes, I do realize half of them are pink… what can I say? I’m a girly-girl.
These kitten pumps are slightly wilder than your average pump in their leopard yumminess. Wild in print, and demure with a little key hole front, and topped off with a black bow. Let’s not forget the statement-making patent upper.
I picture these pumps with J. Crews cafe capris in jewel tones come fall. Or a simple LBD to the wedding we are attending in September. Or jeans and a bold top for a girls’ night out. Oh, the possibilities are endless….
