On Trend – Clutches

Just what is a “Clutch”?

From Wikipedia :
Clutch: a handbag without handles with detachable chain strap, rectangular in shape, often an evening bag but used during the day as well

Clutches are a great day-to-night fashion accessory.  Detach the wrist strap for evening and make sure your manicure is tasteful for a sleek classy look.

Matching Shoes and bag with Pastels

How do you match your shoes and handbag to a pastel dress?

Women’s’ shoes have been all over the map color-wise for the last decade or so.  Maybe I’m a bit old fashioned but I think shoes should at least match your outfit or complement it.

When making this set I thought the bag and shoes should be in the same color family as the dress but a matching pastel seemed to disappear against the lovely print.  A darker wine/burgundy enhances the soft pinks and makes a striking statement.  The Joan Burgundy tote from Brenda Macleod is functional and works with just about any outfit.

Pastel Dress

Lets see how the designers at Polyvore match shoes with pastel dresses:

Handbags For Spring

I just ordered a lovely pink bag for Spring from Shein (see my set below).  They have some really cute trendy bags at discount prices.

This is my first handbag purchase from Shein so I’m anxious to see it and “road test” it.  It has to be able to hold a big wallet, cell phone and cover, large headphones, a drink bottle, among other items.  Just the normal items you need to get you through the work day 😉
