Lil’ Miss Zip Connects…
ZipLiners beware, the “clutch” is the new must have toy for all fashionistas! The new and improved clutch is fun, functional, trendy and on point.
For those like LMZ, my over-sized hobos and totes have been a staple for years… almost serving as a security blanket. Carrying everything and anything needed, it was time to re-evaluate and take stock. This season’s clutches are amazing as they of course are available in the traditional compact and small versions but also have larger sizes for the heavy packers at heart. Perfect for transitioning from large to small!
For years, the clutch has served as a bag for carrying keys, a wallet and other intimate personal items. Resembling a pouch or now the envelope, the clutch is a must have accessory when slim and discreet is the way to go. Today’s styles allow for function and fun!!
Color, style, fabric, design, print and texture… the clutch has it all! With color all the rage, color blocking styles are a must. Styles range from boxed, envelope, long, short, round, deep, thin and fold-over(s) for the clutch look with a larger cabin for storage. Fabrics are a must in leather, bead work and glitz-glam for the cooler months with linen, cloth, striped canvas and patchwork in line for Spring/Summer. Prints make it fun with leopard, zebra, scales and stripes.
A quick favorite is the KINDNESS IS ALWAYS FASHIONABLE fab pick from Rachel Roy. The bag measures a fabulous 9.5″ x 6″ and proceeds from the sale of the clutch will benefit OrphanAid Africa, a non-profit organization that supports orphans and other vulnerable children in Ghana through programs in care reform, education, and development. What better way to look amazing and support a wonderful cause!
Get clutched and Go Happy! – LMZ
(For beginners, J. Crew Style at $98 is a great way to ease into style)
