I can’t decide what my feelings are on the J.Crew Silk Gala Clutch. On the one hand, it’s totally warm-weather-appropriate and I kind of adore the color. On the other hand, it might be a little bridesmaid-y and I’d surely destroy any silk bag with which I was to come into contact. Ultimately, the deciding factor for me is that we’re having a cold front here – when I ventured out earlier, it was still in the 30s, and I live in Georgia, so I’m not supposed to have to put up with that. As a result, anything that reminds me of Spring today is something that I find absolutely captivating, and to me, this peachy-pink clutch couldn’t be any more warm-weather-oriented. This is the kind of clutch I’d carry during the day as soon as it just starts to get warm, just because I can, even if it’s woefully inappropriate to take a silk clutch to the grocery store. That’s how I roll. And for $88, you can all roll like that too, if you so please. And actually, come to think of it, this handbag would be a great option if you found yourself in love with the oh-so-pricey Valentino Bow Clutch. Buy the Silk Gala Clutch through J.Crew for $88.
So, I got laid off yesterday. Don’t feel bad for me, though, I was going to quit later this week anyway. It was a bit frustrating, though, in the same way that being dumped by one of my ex-boyfriends was frustrating – I was planning on breaking up with him anyway, but he got to say it first, which made me seem like the loser. And, technically, the dumpee. Or fire-ee, at this point. So, until things settle down, I’m going to have to lust after some less expensive bags! My first post-employment pick is the J. Crew Small Thompson Tote in Buttercup for the low, low sale price of $100. The great secret about J. Crew bags is that their leather is thick and luxurious, even though their prices aren’t out-of-this-world. This little tote is sunny, optimistic, and telling me that I’ll have a regular paycheck again soon. And the recession Gods have smiled on me, because not only is the handbag on sale, but code EXTRA20 at J. Crew will get you an extra 20% off their current sale prices. So, if you still have a job, go shop so I can live vicariously through you! Buy through J. Crew for $100 .
