A cluch does well by complimenting an outfit without taking the attention away from the dress itself.
A clutch can only be worn for dinners or formal occasions.
Yes, i do agree, you cannot fit much stuff into a clutch, unless you own those GORGEOUS collection of oversized clutches by Celine. coughiownsomecough. :) but then again, as a teenager, how much stuff would you possibly need? a wallet and a phone would do you justice. So here's to my favourite choice of bag, the clutch. However, the clutches that i am about to display do not compliment the outfit, however, they steal the limelight and ARE the outfit.
Note: Some of these clutches may have chains that enable them to be worn as handbags or slings, however they can be stowed away and used as clutches.
So as I was looking around at this fashion website, i spot this turquoise bag and i find it the most gorgeous thing on earth.
Personally, i love this bag as i think it adds a dash of colour to a dualtone outfit. Mainly, black and white. I think it would look gorgeous with a white flowy top, some black skinny jeans, some skyscraper heels and gold jewellery. I love the gold details on this bag and i simply adore the fact that it can add a dash of colour without being too bright. This bag is by Coach.
This Alexander McQueen bag comes in several colours. but these two colours are the ones that really caught my eye. The first thing i noticed about this clutch, is obviously its quirky shape. McQueen shaped it so that the clutch would fit your hands and fingers as you carried it though looking completely rectangular when held. I LOVE this idea of his, and i find the black and gold version and the fushia version just mind boggling.
This next bag is by Topshop. Most of you may have already noticed this bag sold at the stores here in Malaysia. I predict that more than half have taken a second look at this bag too. I spent at least half an hour mourning over this bag as my mom would not let me get it as i am currently banned from shopping. as usual. I just love the Union Jack on the bag. its cute.

Now the next few clutches are pretty formal looking, however i beg to differ as i think these clutches can be worn casually if paired up with the right clothing.
I LOVE this apple sling/clutch. Especially because it's gold in colour. This bag can only be purchased in London, in Temperley London though i am pretty sure it can be purchased online too. I just imagined this bag being worn with a White or cream t shirt and a grey or dark blue high waisted skirt with some flats or even ankle boots for a casual look. Honestly, this bag is so unique that its practically an outfit all on its own. It doesnt need much to make the outfit look presentable. In simpler words, ZOMG. :)
Now this next bag, is more of a matter of taste, as people of the younger generation who do not really appreciate fashion, especially the old styles of the 60's and such, would not appreciate nor understand why a teenager would want to wear such an elderly looking bag. But as i keep telling my mom, for you, its out of date, for us, its VINTAGE.
This bag has this somewhat Chanel feeling to it. That i adore. And i love that its actually made of translucent material and the bunched up look makes it opaque. The chained sling reminds me of Chanel so much. This is probably more towards a dinner bag as all it can contain is a phone, some cash and maybe lipgloss and eyeliner. haha. This bag is by Maddalena Marconi.
This petal-emblished bag by Eruca really caught my eye. As i'm really into golds, blacks and natural colours recently. i think this bag is perfect for summers. in other words, it works all year round for those in Malaysia. I imagined this dress being worn with a grey top and a statement necklace, with a light brown thick waisted belt, and a layered ruffled skirt. preferably neutral in colour. For a dash of colour, the skirt could also be replaced with a lantern skirt or ruffled skirt in fushia or lilac/purple.
I love how this egg/oval shaped clutch reminds me of the egg in the Harry Potter movie. It totally looks like the goblet of fire. The one where it can only be opened underwater, so that you can hear the mermaid singing instead of opening it out of water and hearing screaming. I am going way off topic here but it doesnt really matter. I acutally really love this clutch. and i have no idea what it is made of. But i think it would look gorgeous with a neutral coloured outfit as this clutch is a statement clutch.
This clutch, is actually a vintage clutch and cannot be bought in Malaysia. But i just thought it was gorgeous as eventhough it is clearly a statement clutch, it would be worn with an outfit of any colour, from black and white to bright yellow and it would still blend with the outfit effortlessly. I really think that everyone should own a clutch like this. It doesnt need to be vintage like so. It could simply have swarovski crystals, beads ( A cheaper beaded version of this clutch can be found in Forever 21), or even mirrors. I actually have a bag with small small mirrors sewed onto them. and i think it looks great.
This last clutch is a clutch by Bags at Boden. and it comes in several colours, like black brown, fushia but it was this bright turqoise green that really caught my eye.
Gorgeous ain't it?
okay i am very tired now. I shall get some rest. I am in desperate need of shopping.
Till then, no posts on to buys or already bought as i havent been out shopping in ages. I feel so deprived.
