Kate Spade Dictionary Clutch

Year after year, collection after collection, I fall in love with the designs of Kate Spade again and again. I tend to gravitate towards Spade’s handbags because the brand knows how to tastefully mix modern chic with vintage glam. In that vein, the Kate Spade Wordsmith Dictionary Leather-bound Book clutch does not disappoint.

The first Kate Spade piece I ever owned was a royal blue cosmetic case that my mom bought me for my birthday when I turned thirteen. I LOVE that cosmetic case, and I still use it today when I travel. My love for Spade started because we had similar names. My Aunt MaryAnn always calls me Kate, and at the age of thirteen, who wouldn’t love a make-up case that has her name on it? Now I love Spade’s designs because of the style that emanantes from them: playfulness meets youthfulness meets sophistication.

As soon as I saw this clutch, I instantly gasped. Maybe it’s because I’m a creative writing major and it seems logical for a writer-in-training to want to tote around a dictionary, but mainly I fell in love because of its uniqueness. Interning here at PurseBlog, I have seen some quirky and funky handbags, but this is downright adorable. This all-leather clutch is embossed on the front and sides in gold script. The clutch takes on the shape of a real book with indentation for the spine. The gold hardware is used on the side to define the “pages” of this dictionary and to fasten the clutch. The pinstripe lining on the inside adds a retro touch that corresponds with the theme of the design. You can add this dictionary clutch to your handbag collection for $358 at Neiman Marcus.

    I love my Kate Spade book clutch, I have the Romeo and Juliet one. It always gets a ton of compliments and second looks from people! Don’t try to fit much in them thou, they are strictly for the look and fun of it. Nothing functional about it except for the built in zipper and card slots, which come in handy.
