Handbags. Something to Hold On To.

December 14, 2007 • Accessories

The holiday party season is in full swing and if you’re anything like me you want to make sure that everything is perfect. But what if you don’t have the time or energy to always see it through? Because let’s face it, finding the perfect gift (or any gift at all) is usually difficult and time consuming so by the time you find the perfect dress to wear to all the shindigs you’ll be attending you don’t have a second to spare to find the perfect accessories.

At times jewelry can be difficult to pair with an outfit, but I’m never truly at a loss when adding the bling. And if you have a pair of black heels you’re pretty much set in the shoe department. But the one thing I always seem to scrounge around for at the last minute is the perfect clutch. Even though I must own at least 20 clutches or small purses (just about all of them purchased hours before the event I was attending) none of them ever seem to work with my new dress. So, to make things a little easier for all of us this holiday party season and seasons to come, here are a few clutches that should work for just about any outfit you don when going out on the town.


Tano “Sealed with a Kiss” Clutch $112.00, shopshebang.com
This bronze is the perfect shade to go with any outfit and the perfect size to fit under your arm.


Jimmy Choo Foldover Calfskin Clutch $1,250.00,  saksfifthavenue.com 
If you have a couple extra bucks lying around and want to splurge on a bag that can take you from jeans and a t-shirt to a semi-formal night out, this might be just the clutch to take with you.


J. Crew “Panama Clutch” $98.00, jcrew.com
If you need to fit a little more in your clutch than just lipstick and cash this might be your fit. It comes in multiple colors so it’s easy to match with anything.


Bing Bang “Anita Clutch” $385, from shopbop.com has just enough room to fit exactly what you need and the neutral color and style will keep its versatility endless.
