Natayle Henry for Second City Style Magazine
‘Tis the season to party! For the next few weeks, most of us have our calendars filled with office parties, friendly get togethers, family feasts and New Year’s Eve bashes. For all you must look your best — can’t miss a photo-op! However, packing the necessary items that take you from day to night, or night to day, can be tricky. Since most products won’t fit comfortably inside your clutch, the idea of looking great even after a few dances may seem like a losing battle. Since space vs. chic is a common dilemma, several beauty companies are now selling miniature versions of their larger counterparts. Better still, many handbag companies are offering stylish clutches that can accommodate all your beauty accouterments. Whether you’re a minimalist or rock and roll superstar, there are bags and products to suit your needs.
