I am now going to let you all in on a little secret. I was torn as to whether I should let the cat out of the bag or not, but I think that fashion secrets should be shared. So, here it is: if you are on the hunt for a clutch bag, go to Banana Republic! I never would have guessed, but over the last couple of years, this really has been the best place to find well-made, unique, affordable, and of course, fashionable clutches.
Above are two clutches from spring/summer 2011. These remind me of Palm Beach in the 1960s, even though I have never been to Palm Beach and I wasn't around in the 1960s, but what is fashion without some fantasy? Not buying either of these is one my greatest regrets...
A trio of sparkly clutches.
Another offering from spring/summer 2011
A woven raffia clutch with a laquered wood closure from spring/summer 2010. I own this one, and I love it. It is the perfect finishing touch to almost any summer outfit.
An ostrich feather purse from the 2011 Holiday collection. If you are quick, maybe you can snag this one on sale!
A beaded black and silver option from the 2011 Holiday collection.
Above is the newest addition to my clutch collection. I have been searching for a gold clutch for about a year and this one finally came to me, as a lovely Christmas gift. This bronze, silver and gold bag is from the Holiday 2011 collection.
