Style Saturday: Little Black Clutch
I've wanted the perfect little black clutch for awhile now. In fact, I installed such an item on this wish list I published back in October. Just something simple that goes with nearly everything. I carry my world in a large handbag during the day, but prefer to ditch it at night. Instead, I love to carry a clutch for evening.
I am delighted to show you my purchase, a steal on Amazon...
I loved the "tumbled" leather, which is just enough detail and sheen. The kiss lock frame is silver which I prefer to any other metallic. I love the clean sleek look on the exterior. Nearly twelve inches long, it's flat on one side but the other features a central open pocket. The interior is surprisingly spacious. A wide zipped and open pocket on one side and six card slots on the other provide some organization as well. It has a coral and blue print on the interior and also lining the exterior pocket. It's more than enough space for an ID, debit card, credit card, cash, lip gloss, phone and keys, which is exactly what I carried it in the first time I used it going out to dinner with friends last Wednesday evening.
Its name is Adelyn and it's from the brand Hobo The Original which is a local small business out of Annapolis, Maryland. (Follow them on Facebook too.) I've always admired bags by the brand as they seem to be of nice quality, featuring beautiful leather crafted into a simple design. I would love to visit their flagship store and admire all the other pretty pieces.
Even though I have a collection of clutches, this one may be my signature one...
