I’ve been needing a clutch bag for quite a while now – I keep heading out with the same H&M one tucked under my arm (it’s the only one I haven’t managed to lose), but I think the time is right to expand my collection, and there are such lovely things around right now that I’m spoilt for choice! The above clutch from Regina B. is perfect to wear with winter whites, and is just the right side of bridal (e.g. you could wear it to your wedding but use it again afterwards). Staying with the glitzy vibe, this little sparkly number from J. Crew is perfect for this time of year and comes in silver too! I can’t wait to head to J. Crew when I get to the US – I always find a ton of things I love. I love that this black Marc Jacobs Thrash Bag looks like you could treat it roughly and it would just emerge more fabulous than it was before – beaten up usually does look a bit better than pristine when it comes to leather. One of my friends always puts her expensive handbags on the floor (which attracts some very shocked and disapproving looks), because she loves the slightly-trashed look.
So these would be the 3 on my wish-list for Christmas – I’m dreaming that Santa could be listening!
