That’s Clutch

Turn some heads at the next party you attend with an eye-catching clutch! Clutches are an itty bitty version of the monster bag I carry around. Sure, the huge satchel is useful and I can carry enough supplies to provide for a family of eight; but when arriving to a party, you may not want to lug around an accessory so large. A clutch will add a touch of sophistication to your look. If you want to carry a stellar handbag for the night, but don’t have beaucoup de cash to purchase a designer piece, sites like Rent the Runway let you rent a bag or accessories for a small fee.  Pretty awesome, right?!

Use a fabulous handbag as a statement piece to bring a classic black dress to life, incorporate some texture to your ensemble, or add a pop of color to your look. Check out these petite purses:

Here are 10 things that could be a party-saver, carry some of these items with you in case of a party emergency:

  1. Tide Stick – you never know when a spill may happen, these are gentle on clothes and work quickly
  2. Tissues – for happy or sad tears
  3. Lip Gloss or Chapstick – keep your lips fresh and moisturized
  4. Pen & small pad of paper – jot down important notes, lists, or contact information
  5. Mints – not gum, mints are the silent freshener
  6. Ponytail Holder or Bobby Pins – tame your hair in a pinch
  7. Band-Aid – hosts chopping the vegetable tray could need your first-aid assistance
  8. Emergency Lady Products – for your fellow girlfriends in need
  9. Hand-Wipes or Travel-Size Hand Sanitizer – many parties are filled with handshakes and finger foods
  10. Spare change for parking meters – if you find yourself in the city or decide to skip the valet
