On My Wish List: Kooky Clutches

Hey, everyone! In case you haven’t noticed, I’m currently obsessed with my domino clutch bag (it’s been featured in the previous two posts), so for today’s post I decided to make a curated list of some of the most fun and outrageous small bags available.  I LOVE every single one of these statement bags, and each one is sure to spark conversation.  To make things even better, each bag listed is under $90.

1. Telephone clutch

Coming in at $88 is the most expensive clutch on this list, the telephone clutch, designed by none other than Betsey Johnson (all hail queen Betsey).  Known for her eccentric designs, Betsey certainly did not disappoint us with this bag.  The rotary phone design adds a fun, retro touch to any outfit.  The attached cord and phone detailing is very noteworthy since you can actually ATTACH THE PHONE ON THE BAG TO YOUR PHONE TO LOOK HELLA CUTE AND RETRO.

2. Lemon clutch

Just in time for summer, this lemon clutch will surely make a splash when paired with both daytime and nighttime looks.  It’s adorable!

3. Shell clutch

This clutch will only make my dream of becoming a holographic mermaid princess closer to reality.  Perfect for the Mermaid Parade at Coney, this bag is sure to generate oohs and ahhs. There are also similar bags available in blue and pink.

4. Coke can clutch

Although I don’t drink soda (fun fact), this clutch is awesome.  It’s hyper realistic, and it’s great that it actually has the genuine brand name on it instead of some ratchet impostor.  If you’re more into Diet Coke, worry not, such a bag exists here.

5. Rainbow fur clutch

This clutch is loud and large! The furry texture and the wild color scheme will make any plain outfit infinitely more fun and interesting.  This clutch is yellow-heavy, so pairing it with a solid blue or purple dress would look amazing.

6. Leather takeout box clutch

This clutch is so stylish, it takes a second or two to comprehend that it’s a takeout box gone vogue. The snake-like vegan leather makes it look expensive, and since it’s black, it’ll match nearly anything.

7. Paper boat clutch

This paper boat clutch is whimsy and completely unique. It’s a great daytime option and available in blue here (I personally like the white one better, since, you know, most paper boats are made with white paper not blue paper).
