Opulent Clutches

Opulence accurate describes the gorgeous clutches made by Barbara at Clutch Chic.  Known for her wedding clutches, Barbara has a wide selection of holiday and wedding clutches for the winter bride.  She even does custom requests for everything including the outer silk fabric, the inner lining, and even the purse frame!  That makes your gift a truly One-Of-A-Kind gift.  She even mails up to 4 swatches for free!

This is one of several opulent clutches that are limited editions.

Handmade clutches: the light and the dark

There are still many days for Christmas shopping, and if you still have a girl on your list, check out these clutches.  Aesthetically, these two shops offer bold prints and brocade fabrics.  However,  visually they are both quite different in their presentation.  Both are handmade with care!  The first shop is AnOrangeBlossomBag by Michelle.  Take a look at her clutches as well as her bags and totes.  Look for my favorite tote with the vintage inspired newspaper print of Paris.

Getting darker – another beautiful floral clutch.

Getting a little darker, but no less exquisite, are clutches beautifully handcrafted by Susan at Lulu Caswell Designs.  I love her clutches and the way they are captured on camera.

Makes you want to pull up a chair and join her for tea!

Vintage Kimono Clutches

Looking for a holiday gift for someone special on your list?¬† Whether it’s for your mom, sister, grandma, best girlfriend, aunt, or babysitter, a handmade clutch handbag is a treasured, useful and thoughtful gift.¬† As part of my holidays promotions, I will be highlighting original clutches handmade by amazing women.

One woman in particular was just mentioned in my previous blog.  Erin is a mom of 2 and is based in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Erin is the originator of using vintage kimono fabric to make her clutches.  Her eye for fabric and fabric placement is quite keen.  Her clutches are truly treasured gifts and she sells at local arts and crafts shows as well as online through her shop on Etsy.  My relationship with Erin goes back about 3 years and I am endlessly impressed at how giving she is to her fellow clutch makers from encouraging to supporting others with her experience.

This handmade clutch is made with original vintage kimono fabric. This clutch is a beautiful rendition of the peacock clutches that we’ve seen. It goes well for the holidays with a LBD (little black dress) or for a spring wedding.

Erin only uses vintage kimono clutches.  She has them imported from Japan!  These are the real deal.

Love the bold color!

How stunning is this coin purse? Beautiful chrysanthemum!

If you are looking for a clutch, Erin has a huge selection with many price points.¬† Please check Erin’s shop out!

The videos show my gray!

Well, the videos are taking quite a bit longer than I thought.¬† I have more on the blooper reel than I do actual videos!¬† I’ve never had media training and I get so nervous on camera.¬† I talk super-fast and have had to force myself to slow down.¬† My kids think I wear too much make-up.¬† They are just used to me in my yoga pants, pony tail, no make-up on, getting ready to go to Pilates.

At least I’m getting a lot of work done.¬† Speaking of which, I just got to doing the About page on the Etsy shop website.¬† Check it out!

My babies are fly!

You all know about me by now. But in case you didn’t know how I came up with the name … ūüôā

I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween.¬† I sure miss Autumn.¬† I’ll be back with some Halloween photos!¬† My daughter insisted that she is going as a baby butterfly, and that I go as a Mommy butterfly.¬† How sweet!¬† Are you dressing up?¬† What’s your costume?¬† Send me a pic!
