A clutch is a woman’s rite of passage, a doorway between a hectic day at the office and a mysterious night. A cross-way into an evening with soft music in a dim-lit bar, a smooth beat occasionally interrupted by a soft clink of martini glasses kissing prior to being sipped and emptied. We believe that a clutch has Harry Potter-like powers to transport you into a room filled with soft candle light where melting ice swooshes in a glass and dissolves its cool streaks into an amber yellow of well-aged scotch, or whatever your drink of choice might be that evening.
And just as you are about to take off to a ladies room, you envelope your perfectly compact clutch, that conveniently houses all the night essentials, lip stain, mascara, and your foundation. Not to mention your slick mobile that you’ll undoubtedly peek at to scan your messages.
To give you a nice variety to choose from and to accompany you into the night, check out these 9 lust-worthy finds that encompass both noteworthy names (think Kate Spade), slick silhouettes, and under $100 price tag.
DKNY QUILTED NYLON CLUTCH, $75 (from $98)
