The Second Clutch

December 15, 2009

[ two ]

Two turtle doves?  How about dove grey?  Or since it’s the holidays…


It seems that during the holidays we are invited to as many daytime events as evening.  I love my yoga pants and Longchamp tote as much as the next girl but I kick it up a notch if I’m headed to Nigel’s Christmas program or a cookie exchange with Liv.  The deconstructed shape and the faux leather of this Urban Expressions clutch give it a decidedly daytime feel; the deep silver hue says “holiday”.  It’s big enough to hold my sunglasses, wallet, a small notebook and some random essentials without getting in my way.

With a color this deep and dramatic, I like to keep the rest soft and simple. Rather than relying on black, why not wear it with something cement grey?  These burgundy little flats would certainly add some holiday flair without being over the top.  Wear delicate pearls in an unexpected hue for a look that is simple, soft and stylish…

At 38 bucks, it goes easily from daytime to evening.  Keep it casual with a grey tunic sweater and tie it all together with this studded belt.  And if you’ve been really good this year, maybe Santa will bring you these boots in a slightly off color to finish the look…
