New York got its first real taste of spring weather over the weekend, and while the city basket in warmth, you could almost hear the rustle of tulle liberated from closets and the clack of …

Yesterday, Megs mentioned that it’s wedding season and gave us a great rundown of what a bride looking for a traditional feel should carry on her wedding day. I had just started working for PurseBlog …

Clutches are such a conundrum. Not only are they the smallest, least often-used bags of all the major categories, but they’re some of the most expensive purses on the market because of the amount of embellishment and detail that goes into some of them. It’s hard to believe that what is essentially a frame-structured silk pouch can sometimes cost as much as an all-leather everyday bag from the same brand, but that’s exactly the case with the Valentino Silk Georgette Rosette Clutch, which rings up at $2495.

Franchi Feather Frame Clutch

This is my first holiday season doing the ol’ full-time PurseBlogger gig, so I don’t have a previous party season with which to compare it, but it certainly seems like there are so many shiny, glam, wonderful little clutches surfacing for our holiday enjoyment lately.

I’d imagine that at least part of the uptick is based on the season and part of it is just me paying increased attention to them because I love the holidays, but either way, you’ve got to admit that the Franchi Feather Frame Clutch is kind of adorable. (more…)
