Once upon a time, clutches and I, we did not get along. There was no connection. No bond. No love. I found them cumbersome and restrictive. They found me far too straitlaced to do them justice and that was perfectly fine by me. I was used to have little shoulder bags that allowed me freedom and range of motion. Call it a byproduct of parenting, if you will.
Then my man bought me my very first clutch and I fell head over heels in love.
He couldn’t have picked a better first than this glorious piece from Zara (please forgive me for the poor quality of this picture, at the time I was still learning how to use my iPhone as a camera). It spoke to me on every possible level from colour to size to message, and remains a firm fave to this day🙂 since then, I’ve amassed a few.
Rebecca Minkoff (it’s autographed too, beneath the flap, I’m such a groupie)
Leather, Sequins & Tassel (from ellebee206)
Boohoo.com (this website is full of amazing treasures)
African Kente Print & Leather (also from ellebee206, you really must check her out)
10 Crosby Derek Lam (I am so in love with this piece)
Boohoo.com (I love this site, if you haven’t yet realised that)
Betsey Johnson (such a departure from her signature loud colours)
Zara (a beaded beauty)
Zara (they do wonderful things, don’t they)
B&W Polka Dot Leather (my latest acquisition from ellebee206)
A no brand high street piece (isn’t that snakeskin divine?)
We now come to the best part of this post. I have not one but TWO of this darling WEEKEND MILLIONAIRE concoction right here, ready and waiting to go to new homes, no matter where that might be. Yes, you’re right, it’s an international giveaway so everyone qualifies.
It’s really simple. Just tag someone on my Instagram account, yup, that’s all there is to it. And since only those that are tagged are automatically entered into the draw, be sure to ask your girlfriends to tag you back🙂
The giveaway starts right this very moment and will close at midnight on Monday, the 13th. I’ll be announcing the winners both here as well as on Instagram on Tuesday, the 14th. Good luck!!!
