Elegant Clutches

I’ve been reading stories about brides getting married on 12/12/12, and my dear friend Yvonne is one them!  And that reminded me of the elegant clutches made by Cynthia at Belle Jou Jou.  Her massive collection is just chockful of clutches made with sumptuous materials like lace, satin, silk and brocade.

But it’s just not bridal clutches.  Belle Jou Jou has over 7 pages of clutches at the shop so the selection is quite good for the picking.

This hand-crated floral piece on this clutch really takes the clutch from classic to divine!

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!
