Just a little madness

Everything plaid just screams fall. I feel like to took me too long to finally pull this blazer out of the closet - these jeans too! It's been months since I've worn either piece, and while we are digging out neglected pieces, this sequined clutch is far too under utilized.

It isn't too often I want to forego practicality and carry a clutch during the day, however with the holiday season gearing up and my desire to add just a bit more sparkle to the look, I elected to use the sequined clutch.

Structurally speaking, this clutch is amazing. It's got zippered compartments, interior pockets, exterior pockets, magnetic closures... If only it had a detachable strap, we'd be golden.

  4. Love that blazer, it's so perfect for this time of year! And if for some reason I carry a clutch around one day, I find myself reaching for it again and again for about a week. There's something really nice about simplifying what you carry!

  9. Yes, clutches are so cute, but so NOT practical for everyday use. My favorites have a detachable strap!

  26. It took me a long time to come around to carrying clutches at all, especially during the day - they just seem so impractical. But I finally got the perfect slim, flat wallet that allows me to carry everything I need in a very small space and now, I almost never carry anything but a clutch or a tiny crossbody bag. And it's actually a pretty amazing change. Although I don't have a gold clutch yet and, seeing this one, I think I need that to change.

  30. I love small bags, but if I have more on my agenda than cocktails, I need to have a strap! Nothing is more annoying than maneuvering a clutch under my arm when I'm actually trying to shop!

  31. That's a jacket I'd wear the live out of - or so I say.
    Regarding the clutch, you can always add a belt to it and use it as a regular bag, like here http://myeverydaywear.blogspot.com/2010/04/diy-maximize-use-of-your-clutches.html
