I'm not necessarily proud of this fact, but generally I like the majority of my accessories high-end and (sadly) pricey. (That's also how I like my men, but that's a story for another time, right Andre?) I'll wear what I like to call "disposable clothing" from H & M, Forever 21 and Top Shop all day long, but accessories–I dunno–I like real jewelry, non-synthetic scarves, non-plastic heels etc. And, when it comes to bags, I love supple buttery leather, brushed suede, vintage Art Deco appointments (sourced from the 1920's), hand-sewn stitches, weaving and pleats.
So you can imagine my joy and surprise when, while perusing the goods at Targét, I happened upon the above inexpensive Belt clutch (for, yup, $19.99) and actually really liked it! Some of the alarm dissipated when I realized that the bag was designed by Jaye Hersh, owner of trendoid (to use one of my father's expressions) LA boutique, Intuition. In fact, she's created a whole line called Hollywood Intuition (okay, forgive the name). Anyway, the bag at least feels like real leather (and if it walks like a duck, then who cares if it really is one), so I'm on board.
And that's what we call a clutch find.
Sorry. You know I have no pun self-control. Shame on you. You've always known.
