No one loves an 80s music reference more than me. For years when I was a kid, I would watch old music videos on VH1 (Pop Up Video, anyone?) in the mornings while I was waiting for my dad to get ready and take me to school. Since I was born at the tail end of 1985, I was too young for most of the decade to really remember any of the music when it first surfaced, but I somehow managed to revisit almost all of it in the mid to late 90s via the magic of television.

“Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benetar was (and is) my favorite. Which is, of course, all the more reason to love the CC Skye Benetar Clutch. As if I needed any more reasons.

CC Sky Benetar Clutch

We see plenty of woven bags, but we don’t see a whole lot of designers that choose to incorporate anything into their weaving besides leather, and that makes this clutch stand out. Fine gold chain is strung diagonally through the leather’s weave and provides gobs of visual interest and texture to the bag without compromising its clean lines or simplicity. I’d prefer if the clutch had a flap or a handle, but that’s merely an issue of personal taste. Buy through ShopBop for $175.
