I can’t resist a ruffle. The romantic flutter a light breeze sends through its ridges; the roguish fashion in which it traverses a dainty and demure essence alongside harshness and aggressive factors with uncanny know-how. But it’s not just ruffles, mind you. No, ruffles are just the beginning. I’m also incapable of turning a blind eye towards a clutch – especially one that is labeled as being oversized. Doing so would be a move akin to refusing a second slice of White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory…totally out of the question. Which is why I can’t take my eyes off of the Ruffled Clutch.
The Ruffled Clutch is not the typical tiny piece so often listed as a carryall; the pieces that can fit little more than a stick of gum, a credit card, and, if you’re lucky, a slim cell. Negative mes chéris, the Ruffled Clutch is exactly what you want a hot to trot handbag to embody – a sole zip wall pocket, dual interior pockets for our electronic devices, a large space for all of our glamour girl belongings to reside; even better, the ability to be worn not l'un, but deux ways – oh, how I adore a two-in-one. Tuck the trendy pouch under your arm at the beginning of the evening when you’re full of exuberance; when fatigue takes over, peruse the stylishly cut silvertone metal handles for simple transportation.
And forget about the two things we always worry about on our way out the door, darlings – losing our belongings or catering to spills. Neither will stand in your way tonight. Two magnetic snaps keep your essentials locked up tight, and should you spill your white wine spritzer on your handbag du jour? Well, no tears allowed; you can spot clean the polyvinyl right at your table; then find a cute boy to buy you something sassy to sip on!
Ooh, I need it now. The only question is…the Black or the Hollyhock Berry? Would it be completely devilish of me to scoop up both?
