Well, now isn’t this an interesting clutch. From time to time I find myself fixated on a handbag for so many conflicting reasons. Anyone else do the same?

There is something beyond clutch-worthy about this Tory Burch creation yet there is also something that screams “no way” all at once. “How can that be?” you ask. Let me paint a picture… with words.

The Tory Burch Rattan Clutch is cute, yet certain aspects of the clutch just don’t seem to work well together. So, let me be honest. My very first reaction was that this clutch would be perfect for the Spring and Summer months. And well, it would. But, I am really concerned about what a little wear and tear would do to the woven rattan. The last thing I want is to get a splinter from carrying a handbag. How awful. Luckily, the pebbled leather wraparound banding might save your hand from any potential splinters. This leather comes in gold or silver and for me, the gold is much more of a sound choice since the silver seems to clash. All in all, this isn’t a clutch for me but I don’t hate it. What do you think? Buy through Shopbop for $275.

    I live it! I would have to see the silver to see how I feel about that one. But I think that as long as you don’t throw it around it will hold up find. I picture it with great espadrilles!

    I don’t use bags or clutches made of rattan but this is a nice one, if I were into this sort of bag I think I’d like it. Very good for day at the beach to nice dinner on the boardwalk.

    I don’t usually don’t like rattan but this has potential. I’m not in love with it but I don’t hate it. (fb)

    Actually, I really like the look of it. But rattan? Not a material I would buy a bag in. (fb)

    Maybe a darker hue color will be better.(fb)

    I actually quite like it, although it’s not exactly my style. It’s one of the nicest rattan purses I’ve ever seen, for sure. Always find them way too beachy. (fb)

    I love it in the picture! I went to Nieman’s to buy one but the rattan was in terrible shape before the bags even got out of the store. The laquer covering it was peeling off and the rattan was really in rough shape all over the bag. Darn, I really wanted it for a wedding.
