What’s a belle to do when she needs to pare down that fabulous (but rather bulky) day bag? …Or she is traveling and needs to make the day-to night transition “in a clutch”? Why she grabs one of these little goodies! 20140322-123221.jpg (Left to right: neutral snakeskin from GiGi, hand-tooled camel leather from Satchel, classic black from K. Slademade…available at http://www.giginewyork.com, http://www.shopsatchel.com, http://www.kslademade.com and local shops like Muse and Gage’s in Greenville, SC) Many come with a removable strap for extra versatility (Satchel and k. Slademade) but it’s hardly a deal-breaker without! Toss one in your day bag or carry-on to hold the essentials (think lipstick, credit card, phone…). When you would rather not have the kitchen sink on your shoulder, grab the clutch and go! They are also perfect for small packables in luggage (jewelry, special scarf…). Then when it’s time to dress for dinner, you have some stylish options available!
