Not Martha

clutch envy

With an upcoming trip to Vegas I’ve been feeling the pull of getting a clutch, and it’s not exactly helping that Endless currently has a bunch of stuff on sale.

Matt & Nat Sade Clutch Jessica Simpson Sapphire Clutch

Black: Matt & Nat Sade* and Jessica Simpson Sapphire (yikes)

Hobo International Meg Clutch Hobo International Melia Clutch

Red: Hobo International Meg (see? it was meant to be) and Melia (that was fast)

Rampage Ludlow Clutch Rampage Stanton Clutch

Blue: Rampage Ludlow and Stanton

* Matt & Nat bags are vegan and I’m a big fan of their designs. Stopped at a crosswalk in Vancouver once I creeped suspiciously close to somebody just so I could read the name on her bag, and yup, it was Matt & Nat.

I’ve also fallen desperately for Moop’s The Letter Clutch. It’s beautifully handmade and would work better with what I wear everyday.

    I LOVE the Hobo International Meg.

    Is it just me, or do the Matt and Nat bags wear out really, really quickly? I have had 3 die on me… :(

    Maybe check banana republic downtown? they always have such a good sale selection. I got a great large turquoise clutch there and it’s my favorite. i get at least one complement on it a day.

    I would go with the Sade – but not in the black. They have a nice camel colour that I picked up – with use the colour weathers and adds so much more depth and character to the bag. it was one of the first I picked up from Matt & Nat and I am completely hooked now, I have added 4 more over the past few months and I can’t seem to stop from buying more :)

    Meg & Ludlow are both pretty hott, if you ask me. ;)

    I really like that Rampage Ludlow. I am a bag lady so it seems more roomy but those are all really nice

    Kristen – I was thinking the same thing. I “need” to keep a lot with me.

    I don’t have any of these bags, but I really like the Stanton. I could see that dressing up a pair of jeans.

  • 10 kat // Mar 21, 2009 at 12:24 pm

    i’m not going to be any help – i like them all. :)

    i love the look of clutches but to be honest, they kind of drive me nuts b/c i have to remember to pick it up and i always feel awkward carrying them. i prefer a wristlet so i can have my hands free!

    I have a couple of Hobo bags and really love them. The leather ages very nicely.

    I like the first black one the best the Matt and Nat one. But space is always a thing I’d love to have more than less of. But I tend to be drawn to black bags even though I like the colored ones I seem to always pick black.

    i love matt & nat generally…. but i think you have many cute options for sure! i would consider thinking about whether or not any of them have a little wristlet loop so you can keep tabs on it at all times.. clutches are just so tricky since they can drop from under your arm…

    Clutches are super cute, but you may re-think it once you’re in Vegas. It’s not a safe place to set anything down on the ground, and it’s not always appropriate to set it on the table (not allowed in casinos, might be rude at dinner) and so you’ll have to balance it on your lap. A thin-strapped bag or wristlet might be a better Vegas option. Probably the BEST Vegas option is none at all: have an outfit with substantial pockets. bring only your ID, cash, and a credit card.

    what mia said

    It has gotten to the point that the only bags I buy are matt & nat. They’ve got great styles (I love this clutch, Megan…) and they hold up really well to daily punishment.

    I have to say that the Hobo is the best one. I love Matt & Nat bags (have 3 of them myself and all are in wonderful condition, puts up with daily wear and tear nicely), but i think that clutch would be a nuisance because of the zipper at the opening – i forsee lots of hand scraping just to get in/out of the clutch. just my 2 cents :)

  • 18 Janice // Mar 28, 2009 at 3:41 pm

    oops – i meant the Rampage one is my fave (although i like the Hobo one too)

    Clutches are so great! I can’t get enough. I just found a website for a new company out of Vancouver that I think is going to be big! very nice! I see on their blog they are going to be at a few shows, but you can order online too!
