The years post college seemed to fly by. Gone were the 5-nights-out weeks and in were the days of working during the day and going to bed at a reasonable hour. Gone were naps (sad). And for me, gone was the need of a sturdy clutch/wristlet to take to all the bars and football games. My original wristlet love was the Louis Vuitton Wapity, which I am still loving and could gush about in its size and practicality. Now I have found a clutch that I am trying to get on board with, as it does bring back my love of night-out wristlets.
The Halston Henry Suede Clutch is a grown-up version of a wristlet for a night on the town. Wristlets are perfect choices when you want both hands to be free all night. This Halston clutch is of course more grown up in its look and price. The blue suede works for fall/winter and since it is a dark color will not show wear as much.
There is a double pleat on each side and double link pewter hardware that separates the wrist handle from the body of the bag. Everything about this clutch feels grown up from my college days, which is where society tells me I should be in life right now. But on the eve of the first football game of the season, I still feel like a college kid which makes this bag less and less of an option for a gal like me. I am bringing out practical, sturdy, young, and fun bags and clutches for the start of college football season. But if you are looking for a blue sophisticated wristlet, this may be an option for you. $1395 via Net A Porter.
