5 Must-Have Designer Clutches for Spring
The last couple days have been extremely nice out here in the Emerald City, which is tremendously rare but welcome anytime. With the weather change I have come to a realization that it is time to trade in the white and black evening bags for something more fun and vibrant. A few of my favorite pieces that best represent my spring must-haves are pictured above.
Kate Spade Pasadena Maria Clutch was featured in People Magazine’s â€œstyle watchâ€? this month as a must-have bright accessory for spring â€“ I agree a must-have. The Pasadena Maria is named after one of Los Angelesâ€™ neighboring cities (Pasadena) for its well known vibrant hues found in both its wild parrot population and the Huntington botanical gardens. The pretty-pink clutch is made from a soft and glassy patent calfskin, trimmed with natural vachetta cowhide, accented with light gold hardware, detailed with the new kate spade logo plate and a roomy interior (five card slots, id window, and a zipper change pocket). Measurements: 4″ height x 7.5″ width. Price of this girly-pink patent clutch will cost you $225. Discover it at KateSpade.com

This shimmery favorite is just the right size for your evening-essentials. Measurements: 5â€? height x 8â€? width. Price of the Miu Miu Metallic is $170.

Jimmy Choo Mave Foldover Clutch has already been seen in the arms of at least a dozen or so of our favorite celebrities â€“ such as (off the top of my head) Victoria Beckham, Naomi Watts, Lindsay Lohan, Mischa Barton, Tara Reid and Paris Hilton.

Other features include the detachable wrist strap and an exterior easy access zip pocket. The bag is lined in tan suede with lilac trim and has an internal pocket.

Instead of dressing the bag with the pattern, Pucci decided to line the bag with the signature. This Pucci purse is big enough to hold just the essentials. Measurements: 4â€? height x 8â€? width.
