This adorable little clutch is the perfect accessory to finish off your sweet punk summer look! I love the light blue combined with the gold hardware. It’s a lovely color combination that would look beautiful from spring to summer.
The Empire State is a light blue slouchy style clutch topped off with polished gold pointy stud cones. One thing I was taken a little back by when reading the description is that this clutch is not made of leather – it’s made of denim. I wouldn’t say I’m the biggest fan of the fabric look. I’ve never owned a denim purse in my life (although a huge of the Louis Vuitton Denim Collection) I just don’t think this is something I would ever wear. Without a doubt, if this was made with leather (or even faux) I would have to get one, because honestly wouldn’t this clutch look 100x’s more amazing if it was made out of some lux material?
During those warm summer months, nothing beats a brightly colored straw tote! It is the ultimate summer-only accessory! The only problem is that they aren’t appropriate for all occasions. Sometimes you need a chic style, even a professional-looking one. After all, many of us bagistas have that annoying thing called work that we have to go to and it doesn’t care if it happens to be a gorgeous summer day outside or not. But not to worry, you can still have a summer-only handbag and feel very work-appropriate at the same time! How? Try a classic, structured style in a neutral summer fabric! My favorites are linen and burlap. These fabrics are light and luxurious, yet so unexpected. Pictured below are a few of my favorite styles, check them out!
Rebecca Minkoff Linen Morning After Mini Bombe Bag – $374
A favorite among Minkettes, the Morning After Mini Bombe is a great classic style. I love the oatmeal linen canvas paired with the contrasting black patent leather trim. Sleek and simple, this style is perfect for carrying your everyday essentials!
