Clutches can be so much fun. You can be as wild and crazy or refined and sophisticated as you want. Simply switch them out to fit whatever the occasion happens to dictate! I suppose it is no wonder then that I write about a lot of clutches. The concept of the clutch is just so fascinating! You know what’s really exciting though? When I stumble upon a clutch (or any type of handbag for that matter) and I don’t know what it is at first. Take, for example, the Cleobella Bahati Clutch!
When I first spotted this clutch, I thought the embellishment was some sort of seashells. Whatever they were, they were rounded and dome-like. I was thinking maybe little clam-like shells. When I went in for a closer look, boy was I surprised! The embellishment is actually brass. The rounded shapes that sort of stand out? They are elephant ears! Yep, those are little elephants and their eyes are encrusted with little bits of turquoise. I certainly never saw that coming! But you know what? I really like the elephants. I’m such a sucker for cute animal motifs. It adds a wonderful and exotic touch that is almost impossible to resist!
