At this time of the year, there are so many events to look forward to; weddings, ladies days and of course there are so many gorgeous girlies getting ready for school proms and graduation balls. I didn't go to my school prom, instead I chose to go on holiday to Tenerife with my friend but I did attend my graduation ball and I have so many fond memories of the night.
I love putting together outfits for special occasions and even if I don't have anywhere to go, I still love to look online for pretty dresses and accessories. In yesterdays post, I talked about some of my favourite summer dresses that are online now and in today's post, I wanted to write about one of the accessories that can really complete your outfit; a clutch bag.
When I go out, I like to pack my essentials, i.e. only the things that I need and will use and I like to leave the kitchen sink at home. Gone are the days when I used to take hairspray out with me. I like to make sure that I apply my makeup and do my hair so that it lasts when I leave the house and just take a lippy in my clutch bag to top up through the night.
I'm going to an engagement party in a couple of weeks and I've just got a new clutch bag to take out with me from Accessories Boutique*.
Accessories Boutique stock the most gorgeous range of clutch bags, many of which sparkle with crystals, as well as scarves and lots of pieces of jewellery.
I have the Grey Ruched Satin and Crystal Clutch Bag and as you can see, it is gorgeous. This is the perfect small clutch to take with me to a party with my hubby or to a dinner event. I can fit my card holder, keys, lippy and some change inside but unfortunately, it isn't quite long enough to hold my iPhone 5s. That doesn't bother me too much, I'll probably have it out taking selfies anyway!
The clutch has a hard case that opens at the top with a crystal bead closure. The body of the clutch is a gorgeous grey satin with silver hardware. There's a stunning crystal brooch on the front that looks so lovely against the ruched satin.
The bag comes with two detachable chains so you can either wear it long over your shoulder or carry it in your hand which is how I would prefer to carry it.
I really like how theres a zip compartment inside for your coins as so many box style clutch bags are just empty shells whereas having a zipped compartment inside proves to be really handy when you're in a rush to pay at a bar!
I love how this bag looks with a multitude of outfits and especially the way that it compliments an LBD. This clutch would also make the perfect clutch bag for a bridesmaid.
