A couple weeks ago I was invited to an amazing event hosted by Polyvore, featuring special guest Rebecca Minkoff. The afternoon included lunch with the Polyvore team and an exclusive event with Rebecca and Polyvore CEO Jess Lee at the Rebecca Minkoff store on Fillmore Street in San Francisco to discuss the intersection of fashion and technology. I was so excited!
Well, as misfortune would have it, the event was on a Monday. On a different type of Monday I might have tried to swing it, but this particular Monday was very busy at work, which is about 90 minutes away from SF. So, in the end, I was unable to make it. :(
BUT, before the event, I wanted to make sure that I had a new RM item to bring to the event. Since I didn't want to spend a lot of money, I couldn't believe my luck when a found the gorgeous plum "Leo" clutch on sale at Neiman Marcus. (Something affordable at Neimans? Wow!) I have been using this clutch everyday since I purchased it, and I anticipate I'll be using it for months to come.
Let's take a look at some of the options: (these are affiliate links; I will earn a small commission with each click.)
I thought this clutch would be one I would use from time to time, not an everday bag. Well, I was wrong. Let me tell you why:
- It's a wallet: there are slots for your license and cards.
- It fits so much more than you would think, while still retaining its shape and closure. Keys, lipstick, phone, glasses (in a small case), little notebook, pen, etc.
- It can just be thrown into a larger bag and then pulled out as needed throughout the day. I love being able to just take it out of my work bag when I run an errand so I don't have to lug the big bag around.
- It is surprisingly easy to carry.
I have gotten so many compliments on this clutch, and it makes me happy just looking at it! If you are looking for a new clutch this holiday season, I highly recommend looking into this one, especially if you can snag it on sale! You won't be disappointed.
The formula is so simple here: neutral or striped top + denim or solid bottom + bright heel.
