I love, love, love, love, love the Kettle Black New Clutch with White Studs. LOVE. I have no idea who this brand is, but ShopBop apparently just started carrying them, and I’m officially judging that to be a Good Choice on their part. Their selection of the brand’s good seems limited right now, and this cute little clutch is by far my favorite. I’m a girly girl, but not in the traditional sense – I don’t like things that are TOO pretty. I prefer things that are slightly off, slightly messed up, or slightly imperfect, and this clutch mixes the worlds of the girly with the edgy perfectly.
As far as girliness goes, it’s crisp white, which is perfect for summer outfits of almost any kind. It looks big enough to hold the essential but small enough that you can just use the wrist strap to hang it from your arm and not worry about losing it. What I love most, though, is the juxtaposition of the rows of tough, metal studs painted white against the girly whiteness and the utter femininity of a clutch in the first place. It’s simultaneously both a bit twee and a bit punk, just like yours truly. And the price ain’t half bad either. Buy through ShopBop for $220.
