Sometimes you come across a dress, a pair of shoes, or a bag that makes you think, “Wow. If only I had this, I would look cool and hip and trendy.” That’s what came to mind when I spotted this Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Outlaw Clutch in all its raw leather glory. It’s such a simple design, yet it looks so stylish- the epitome of that effortless look that so many of us strive to attain. Sure, it has many details; the structured handles, the lacing, the tassel; but these details mesh together in such a way that it looks carelessly cool rather than carefully contrived.
The oversized size makes it almost a celebrity item in itself; I can picture it at home on the arm of any Hollywood starlet. The roughness of the thick fringed tassel and the brown leather though, give it a touch of the Old West that would look equally amazing with cowboy boots as it would with the sweetness that is a lacy white dress. Isn’t it nice to find a bag that is at once so unique and so versatile? Buy through Shopbop for $275.
