Hey everyone! Today I wanted to do a post on the perfect clutch (and what to keep in it!) for those holiday gatherings that are just around the corner! I don't know about you, but bulky bags can totally be a burden at parties- if you keep it with you the whole time, it can bump into people, but if you choose to set it down, it might not be the safest idea. That's why I often opt for a super cute clutch! I choose ones that are large enough to hold my necessities, but small enough that I can keep it with me all night and won't be bumping into everyone! Plus, most of them offer hidden straps, so when I get tired of holding it, out come the straps, and on it goes onto my shoulder!
My favorite clutch at the moment is this chocolate bar inspired piece by Kate Spade! Cute right?! It too has hidden straps and is pretty roomy inside! It also offers a zippered compartment, which I use to keep my cards and cash in!
What I keep inside: my phone, credit cards, lip products of the evening, chapstick, a mirror, eyelash glue (you never know...) and some tweezers! The phone and cards are pretty obvious, but I do think its important to carry your lip products to do touch ups, your chapstick in case your lips get dry, tweezers if your false eyelashes need some adjusting (or really for anything- they do come in handy), bobbi pins & hair rubber bands if you need to put your hair up and finally a compact mirror for touch ups and spinach in the teeth checks.
My current mirror is one by Winks, which also houses a spare pair of falsies, as well as some eyelash glue! I think this is absolutely perfect because as the night progresses (especially if there is dancing involved), your falsies may need some touching up! Whenever I wear them for long periods of time, they tend to pop up towards the inner corners of my eyes, so having glue nearby is definitely a must for me! This particular compact also comes in handy when you need a safe spot for your falsies at the end of the night so you can reuse them later on!
What do you guys keep in your clutch?!
