Curves Around the World: Clutch Bag

Hey Everyone! How is everyone doing this week? You know it was 80 degrees this week in California? Were having summer weather in winter, not cool because I've been loving the cooler weather. Fortunately it got cooler today, so that's a good sign. Are you ready for Christmas, there's only 6 more days! 
Well it's the middle of the week, you know what that means another "Curves Around the World" post and this weeks theme is "Clutch bag!" So I'm actually not a big clutch bag person, I don't own many and most of the ones I do own have a chain strap, that I will usually use instead of using it as a clutch. I'm just more comfortable with bags with straps, especially ones that you can just wear over the shoulder. But for this post I will actually use the clutch the way it's suppose to be.
This clutch is really old, I think I got this my first year of college from forever 21. I wont say how long ago that was but it was a pretty long time ago. But I really like this clutch and I think that even after so many years it's still in style. I love the colors on the bag it's very fall and I love the paisley pattern on it as well. 
{clutch & heels - Forever 21} {Jeans - Forever 21+} {top - Wet seal +}
So this isn't the original outfit I was going to wear, but I didn't really have much time to change so I figure that the outfit I wore today would be fine. It's because the sun goes down so early this time of year so when I get home I rush to try to take my pictures before it's dark outside. The tank underneath is a burnt orange which I felt like complemented the colors of the clutch but it didn't photograph well. But yeah on the back of my shirt there's a skull, if you remember when I wrote about the opening of wet seal+ (here) this was the top that I bought from there. I didn't get a clear picture of it to post, sorry.
Since I was wearing jeans I decided to dress it up with heels, because when I think of clutches I think of a more dressier outfit. I love how heels can dress up an outfit, like you saw in my last post how I wore heels with sweatpants, heels can take a casual everyday outfit to one for a night out. 

What do you think of clutches? How do you wear clutches?

  1. You look great, as usual, Nina! I'm a big fan of clutches for dates or dressy occasions. I sometimes use clutches for daytime, but like you, I find shoulder bags much more practical for everyday use.

    P.S. I really like your paisley clutch!

  4. I love clutch bags and have quite an array, but I found that I kept reaching for my handbags when it was time to go out. I know make a conscious effort to incorporate my clutches regularly, and I refrain from needlessly buying additional ones :)

    1. I might try that, I think that handbags are just so much easier to reach for. But maybe if i make an effort I will use some of my clutches more often! :)
