This past holiday season I gifted many clutches to my friends and relatives. Clutches are the perfect gift to give to just about any girl. Throw a great lipstick in and you have a bag that is ready to be taken out. For many of my friends that are still into the bar scene, I opted for a bag which would look cute and provide perfect usability. My sister received five handbags from me; one of them being the Marc by Marc Jacobs Lovely Zip Clutch which is perfect for happy hour after work. Most of us have been to a bar (I went to one of the largest universities in the country, I know bars very well by now) and have seen the sticky bar tops. Not only have we all seen the dirty bar top, but we have leaned on it, put our elbow in it, spilled on it, heck, even slept face first in it. So between the bar top and the spilled drinks, you never wear your nicest outfit to the bar and you never carry your nicest bag. This Marc Jacobs clutch is perfect for a bar; it is cheap, it is cute, and it will hold the essentials for a night out. I picked rose for my sister, which offers a nice pop of color, and is offset nicely with white topstitching and silver hardware. There is a logo plate detail on the front that breaks up the clutch and a touch of gathering on the leather. I patted myself on the back for this pick, it is perfect for the gal who loves to go to the bars or good for a younger gal who wants to begin a collection. Buy through Saks for $188.
