Left Holding the Bag

 

Left Holding the Bag
So, I've never been that big of a fan of the clutch purse. I admire the way it can jazz up an outfit, but I really prefer to have my hands free. Maybe there's also this lingering picture of me having had one too many cocktails, putting my clutch down to dance, and leaving it in some dark corner. But I could make a case for keeping this one in hand. It's called The Picnic and the design is based on the ubiquitous paper bag but it's made out of luxuriously soft leather. I love how the gold version is the perfect blend of casual shape and shiny finish with an end result that screams totally cool, slouchy elegance.
