Oversized Clutches

On a recent shopping spree, I was bored, waiting outside the changing room, and I started picking up the bags around. After a few bags, I picked up this large Marni clutch, looked into the mirror and got that feeling -that unexpected, novel feeling. After carrying large handbags during daytime for so long, it was SO refreshing to carry this clutch.

OK, so oversized clutches might not be a trend this season, and carrying a bag without the strap is certainly annoying. But it's such a nice feeling to carry a bag with only the things you actually need, instead of the ten million random, useless things you probably have in your bag. Ever since that moment of holding the Marni clutch, I've started to take notice of oversized clutches around me. Zara this season, has very Marni-sh oversized clutches. And I love Ashley's large, red Bottega Veneta one -it's just the right size and adds a touch of colour to her outfit.
J Crew has some classic summer ones, such as this straw clutch.

Here is a canvas one by J Crew that is less beachy.

While the L.A.M.B. Catania clutch isn't 100% my style, but it is very cool.

For something really simple and affordable, these are from Top Shop.

These two are right on trend: (Left) Black patent clutch by Goldenbleu; (Right) Metallic clutch by Lauren Mirkin -great for night time. Both are available at shopbop.

Lastly, one of my favourite ones -the Balenciaga Giant Traveller. It's way out of my budget for a clutch but I'll just continue fantasizing about it.

OK, so I'm probably not going to buy a daytime, oversized clutch anytime soon (unless I happen to see an affordable one,) but it's such a nice alternative to the heavy, huge bags we've been lugging around recently!

as cute as these bags look, i find them incovenient for everyday use. Although some may be good for those rare nights out when you don't want to carry too much stuff.

clutches are great for those few special occasions.. but as for an everyday bag? just a bad idea... what a pain! I'll admit it though they'e adorable and especially like the marni one and the last one

Ooooh I love largeish ( especially envelope-shaped) clutches! Those ones from Top Shop are really cool, and I've seen a nice, distressed-gold one by Susan Fitch. I do agree, however, that they're rather a pain to carry around all day...

I love the topshop ones and the straw one from J Crew. I have to say, if I ever carry a clutch, I just end up with hand cramp. Not a good look...

I think clutches are cute for an evening night out or special kind of look, but I'm not a big fan of the emerging larger size clutches out there. I feel like it's a little bit too big to be practical for everyday use, let alone the fact that it's kind of hard to carry a larger bag around when it doesn't have a handles.

those envelope clutches from top shop look just like the ones from michaels kors. they are so cute, but like frapp said, sometimes practicality reigns and a more hands-free bag wins out -- that doesn't make me lust after these adorable clutches any less, especially the balenciaga one, yum.

Random? Useless? Oh I dunno, I couldn't go anywhere without my ...umbrella, phone, sunglasses, notebook, make-up, er you get the picture. but with shoulder pads making a comeback next season it looks like slouchy shoulder bags will have to give way to clutches and tophandles.

Richard Prince and Louis Vuitton Handbags
If you’ve ever followed the art world, or the world of art thievery, you’ll have heard the name

of Richard Prince. Richard Prince has been considered by some to be an art thief, while by others

he is considered to be a genius. Prince began his career in the art world in 1976 and has been

making headlines ever since. He creates what is known as “rephotography”, which is a copy of

someone’s work that he has taken to the next level. A short time ago, Prince chose to work with

jokes and began making paintings and rephotography that had jokes that he loved printed on them.
Louis Vuitton handbags have now been graced with some of the famous artist’s work. You can now

find select LV handbags that have been created with a number of Richard Prince’s favorite jokes.

Made using an acid canvas with Karung trimmings, the Monogram Jokes Heartbreak Red is a Louis

Vuitton handbag that definitely makes a statement. This handbag not only says something on the

outside, but on the inside as well, with a microfiber ochre lining and antique brass hardware. The

jokes may be funny, but this LV bag is definitely not.http://www.ereplicasupplier.com/
