Shiny clutches are definately my cup of tea, so to say. They reinvent the outfit so easily!

I love clutches!! my favourite is the carolina herrera one

kpeach said...

I love a good clutch-that clear one is amazing, but I wouldn't want to put anything in it! xx

Hobo ........ ........ ........ said...

Jessica said...

The Phillip Lim clutch needs to be in my hand paired with over-the-knee boots and a fur vest, while I hail a cab with the other hand...haha I love it!

Jaime said...

Love the Laura Merkin peacock one! Good selection :)

Anika said...

Oversize clutches? I'll take them all. On a clutch-kick of late, and all these offerings tempt. In the best way possible. Mmm.

Thanks for that porn, CC ;)

Sher said...

Wow, I've been thinking of getting one of those boxy clutches but haven't found the perfect one todate!

Great picks, CC!

Taylor Sterling said...

these are all so pretty! I wish I owned more!! So chic!

Keith said...

I love clutches. All of these here are great. I hope you've been having a nice week. Take care. Cheers!

Couture Cookie said...

All of these are so beautiful. I think we should all carry clutches more often - you don't need to drag your big bulky tote at all times!

Aleksandra said...

Really chic !!!My favourite is the Fendi and Valentino and all of them ...

Erika said...

The Emanuel Ungaro Studded Leather Clutch reminds me so much of a CC Skye piece I have been coveting. Love! :)

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

I'm a total fan of clutches! I adore that tiny Chado one! and the Marchesa one? gorgeous! xo

becca. said...

nuheila said...

Oh,i m in love with that Versace clutch!!!It s just amazing,wish to have that!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Gorgeous clutches! I especially like the glass one by Fendi. Very unique!

Wanderlusting said...

I love clutches but can't use them - otherwise I lose them!! I need them to be attached to my body somehow, which is why the ONLY clutch I would ever use is the one with the love attached, by Alexander McQueen.

Dina's Days said...

Clutches are a female must have! I love all of them, and I even like the bangle bracelets in the Rebecca Taylor photo.

Danielle said...

I adore clutches, but I'm always worried that Im going to forget it when I wear it out. Especially after a few drinks! Also, I have yet to master the balancing act of holding a clutch, a drink, possibly an hors d'oeuvres, and shake hands

Laura in Paris said...

I love clutchs, they are SO elegant!

MY OWN YELLOW CAT said...

The fluo clutch is the best!

Maravellous post once again.

Tights Lover said...

Love these. The Fendi one was really interesting. Gotta be careful what you're carrying with you with that one!

Leah said...

I love that Elie Tahari clutch. It is so cool but I have to be extra careful what I put inside because it is transparent. But I still want it.

mosha said...

Missy said...

I love the choices you shown.

Sam said...

The satin green one, the pinky croc and the clear one are my faves but as always so hard to choose! Have I mentioned I love the new header? What a gal!! Have a lovely end of week CC. XX

Susan said...

I love clutches & I have many of them, but I had to discover that they are not practical at all for an everyday use! now I need a great handbag- I hope I will be lucky enough to get a Jimmy Choo for H&M bag very soon :))
have a lovely day, darling CC!

joannapple said...

Clutchs are so chic! I love em! They make all outfit. I have only black but must definitely think about some colorful ones!!

Pixel Wild Child said...

oh! Who doesn't like clutches! your selection is fantastic, can't see anything I don't like! Clutches are fantastic and so fun...

K.Line said...

I love me a good clutch - even though the word is very weird sounding when you start to think of it. Challenge is that I can't fit anything in them. So they are left for the special occasion wear. Hard to justify sometimes.

Sher said...

wondering what is put in that tiniest one you show here....

Aoife said...

Im not usually fond of clutches normally, but that glass one is cool.

Intrinsically Florrie said...

I'm liking clutches more and more recently.
There are a couple of little cute ones there- though I'm not sure they'd hold that much!
I love the Derek Lam floral one,
'Estate Sale kisslock clutch, at ModCloth.com' is also very pretty- Oscar de la Renta too, despite lack of florals! =)
I would use the Elie Tahari one so much! It's so sophisticated.

Florrie x

dapper kid said...

The Badgley Mischka is so sleek and sophisticated, I am loving it! And wow, the texture of the Herve is SO amazing. Ooh and I absolutely love the detailing on that orange de la Renta clutch. Hope you're having a fabulous day :)

B a la Moda said...

Great clutches. I am so used to the big bags that I would have to change too many habits in order to fit my things in the small size. ;)

Katherine said...

Definitely the Jacobs clutch!

OceanDreams said...

Okay, don't get me wrong CC, but I love clutches but I get so annoyed not being able to swing them up on my shoulder! But...these are gorgeous, truly.

Timeless Fashion... said...

Haha, thanks for this post; it made me laugh... Clutches have this effect on me sometimes; especially if they are tiny.

Blair said...

Definitely the Fendi--although not sure it is the most functional it is pure bliss in my mind! xx b
