Handbag Hero: The Clutch

I love routing through my wardrobe and having a really good clear out. And I’m pretty ruthless too (regretfully so sometimes). But one thing I never discard or sell is my handbags. It’s a subject that friends (husband included) have said I should ‘come clean’ about.

So here it is…Although I believe you should have fewer, better quality items, with handbags I just can’t stick to it! I would say without exception, that they are all investments and none of them are particularly ‘out there’ or crazy (pretty safe to be honest) but I do have more than my fair share.

With the party season approaching I thought a good collection to share would be the clutch. I love the way an oversize clutch gives an outfit instant kudos and how a delicately placed box clutch creates timeless glamour. The Duchess of Cambridge is often seen with a clutch, showing perfectly how it smartens up an outfit and that they don’t always have to be reserved for evenings.Kate Middleton

My Collection…

Anya Hindmarch Josie
My favourite and most treasured, Josie by Anya Hindmarch. A timeless classic that is perfect for festive sparkle.Anya Hindmarch holiday clutch
Anya Hindmarch again. The Rossom in woven white leather. This is really reserved for the summer and mainly for taking on holiday as it goes with everything so means I can travel light. Behind that, the Anya Hindmarch (seems to be a bit of a theme..?!) metallic Huxley. Perfect for everything from dressing up a casual day outfit to evening wear.Clutch bags
This small, gold envelope clutch was my first every Anya Hindmarch purchase and is so simple. A true classic.Mulberry Clutch
The Mulberry small purse clutch. This is great for those nights when you want to travel light. Fits phone, lipstick and cash and is easy carry in your hand. Behind that is another wardrobe staple for me. The black leather Tory Burch clutch with gold chain strap. It’s a great size to make a statement and is a really soft calf-leather.

      Hi Annmarie, Thank you! Is your Dior one like the sparkly box one? I know someone that has that and it’s gorgeous. I could spend a long time on that Anya Hindmarch site…just my favourite handbag designer. x
