About two years ago with did a “Secret Santa” exchange on The Bag Forum. The whole idea was quite fun. We were basically buying and receiving a gift from someone we’ve only exchanged words with online. One year our brilliant founder, Jennifer, got me! She knows I’m obsessed with the color pink and she got me a gorgeous Juicy Couture pouch in like a coral color. I was instantly in love. It was beautiful and big enough to fit all my makeup inside. I carried it everyday with me and even neglected my Louis Vuitton makeup pouch. It was adorable, girly, pink and oh-so-me.
I was a model for many years and I quit to turn to acting. I’m currently in acting school at the moment and as part of my studies I go on sets of T.V. shows or movies that are being filmed in the South Florida area. In May, I got a part in a very popular cable T.V. show. I was so excited and brought my makeup, makeup brushes and carried it all in my pink Juicy Couture pouch. After a 15 hours shift, I went home and went straight to bed because I was filming for another T.V. show the very next day. When I went to pack my bags in the morning, I noticed my pink Juicy Couture pouch with all my makeup brushes and makeup was gone. I don’t like to assume, but to this day it’s never been found and I hope someone out in the world is enjoying my bag. I was pretty heart broken and I haven’t found a pouch as big and pretty and my Juicy Couture one.
I’m a pink lover so nothing will ever compare to my late- Juicy Couture pouch but I did find a beautiful one by Kate Spade. The Glitterball “Gia” Clutch is so pretty and colorful it’s hard not to love it! This is the first pouch that I actually like, that is the same size of my Juicy one. The colors are stunning and I would personally use this as a clutch or a makeup bag! It would make a great evening clutch because it’s so sparkly but it would always make a great pouch to carry makeup or an iPad mini in!
If you are ever wearing anything that’s a solid color, this clutch would be an amazing accessory to carry with you. When you keep the outfit simple you let the accessories shine a bit more and this clutch deserves the spotlight. It’s cute and for a great price! I love it!
You can purchase the Kate Spade “Gia” at Neiman Marcus for $98.
