The world is an anxiety provoking place. People (and by that I mean me) seem a bit on edge lately. It’s calming to focus on enjoying some small, pleasing things that are within our control. This thought process led me to pull over on the side of the road yesterday, lay on my stomach in a glorious yellow riot of buttercups in the median, and snap an I-phone photo of a single perfect flower.
It also helps me that my work involves finding lovely objects from the past and figuring out how to enjoy them in the present.
Which leads me to think about using a vintage clutch bag with casual daytime clothes.
Here’s why daytime clutch bags make so much sense :
- They look modern
- They look minimal
- They look different
- They are unfussy
- They are kind to your neck and shoulders
- They force you to carry fewer items
- You need a style change
The clutch can add a surprising element of color or texture or shape to a simple outfit.
