i have a MAJOR crush on the clare vivier foldover clutch. if you haven’t had the luxury of holding or seeing them in person, you’ll have to trust me on this. they really have such a simple elegance. clare (can I call her clare?) uses really extraordinary leather that wreaks luxury and quality. you can spot them across a crowded room. seriously. i think this tan with pink stripe is the perfect bag for summer (can you imagine it this summer with white jeans and t? super fly.). and it hits the sweet spot in pricing. i sure don’t feel guilty buying a purse in the $200 range, especially when i know i will carry it as often as i will this baby.
clare also does a smaller version, the flat clutch, that is the perfect size (5″ x 7″) for nights out and she has some fantastic evening-ish options, like this one (which I wish I could also get (what’s my total so far?)) . . .
the wallets are flirty and awesome but you can feel the quality when you hold it in your hand. . .
