When you live in a particularly intense place – New York with its overcrowding, LA with its smog, Atlanta or DC with their endless traffic – the lure of a road trip can be enormous, especially when spring gets into full swing and the weather by itself is enough to make you want to leave the house. We all need a little break, and sometimes the only way to satisfy that urge is to physically remove yourself from your normal environs. By the looks of the Kate Spade License Plate Box Clutch, the folks at Kate Spade agree with us.
Kate Spade has carved out a healthy niche for itself with these kinds of literal, whimsical bags, and even though this little clutch isn’t the type of bag that would hold everything you need for an impromptu weekend getaway, carrying this bag would be a very stylish way to signal to your friends that it’s time to rent a car and get out of dodge for a little while. On its own, the design would be adorable with a full-skirted sundress, but that’s probably true of all Kate Spade bags – that’s the brand’s look, and they’ve got it down to a science, right down to the little SUV closure at the top of this bag.
