Pippa Middleton carries a Tabitha London Clutch during her book launch

Oct 26 2012

Pippa Middleton, stylish socialite and sister to Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, was recently spotted clutching a Tabitha London bag during the launch of her book Celebrate at Daunt Books in Chelsea, London.

She was also seen leaving Lou Lou’s in Mayfair, London carrying the same black leather clutch. Pippa looked fashionable as always in a classically simple Stella McCartney wool top and skirt from the Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. The Tabitha London clutch, called Rappers Delight, is a fold-over and made of croc cow leather with gold hardware.

Rappers Delight in Black, £120.00 or around $190

We love the versatility of this clutch because it’s great to wear with jeans, skirts or even more formal frocks. It’s also available in two other colors: violet and stone.

This crocodile print leather clutch is a modest investment but if you’re in search of more budget-friendly options, we’ve got a few stylish clutch bags that are easy on the pocket:

Vecceli Italy CL-112, on sale at $48 (was $98)

Stella McCartney’s Future-Forward Hologram Clutch

Oct 22 2012

We chanced upon a cool-looking clutch and were instantly hypnotized by its dazzling iridescence. Beam us up, Scotty, the clutch seems to have landed in the British fashion designer’s hands during her Stella McCartney C&A Collection Launch at the Ex Convento De San Hipolito in Mexico City recently.

We guessed that the clutch was a Stella McCartney piece (of course!) and we were right. Stella was holding a fold-over clutch from her Resort 2013 Collection (as were the clothes she wore to the event).

We found a similar Stella McCartney clutch at Saks Fifth Avenue:  

Stella McCartney Olegram Hologram Square Clutch, $590

This clutch has a top zip closure with one inside open pocket but carries the same minimalistic look and hologram design present in her accessories selection from the Resort 2013 collection.

On a tight budget? Check out our new iridescent find at Go Jane:

Iridescent Clutch in Silver, $46

This clutch is so affordable and multi-functional! If you want to ride on the iridescent trend, this can definitely be your go-to bag. It’s also available in black, fuchsia and purple. To infinity and beyond!

10 Celebs Show Off Their Arm Candies at ELLE Women in Hollywood Affair

Oct 19 2012

A myriad of clutches in various shapes, sizes and styles were seen gracing the arms of Hollywood’s brightest stars and the fashion industry’s biggest names at the Elle 19th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills last October 15.

We chose ten of our favorite clutch bags, but it wasn’t that easy. With the bevy of exquisite clutches being paraded before our eyes, it was hard to trim down the list. Anyway, here are our top picks:

Stylist to the stars Rachel Zoe looked radiant in a flowing white maxi dress that highlighted her metallic silver snakeskin clutch.

The lovely Emma Stone was even prettier in pink as she wore a Valentino dress with a Peter Pan collar which made a stark contrast to her black Valentino clutch.

Twilight star Anna Kendrick‘s sassy style was evident as she arrived at the event in a black Badgley Mischka dress with gold detail and a goldtone Mulberry hard case clutch.

Noteworthy actress Cate Blanchett showed a playful side with her digital print Proenza Schouler dress which complemented her black Roger Vivier clutch.

Miss Pillsbury Jayma Mays stepped out in a royal blue Alexandra Vidal creation that matched her Rebecca Minkoff clutch.

Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka looked every inch a rising star as she stole the spotlight with her black and white striped Moschino dress and a hot pink Olympia Le-Tan clutch that resembled a (surprise!) hardbound book.

We’re green with envy at comedienne and ELLE honoree Kristen Wiig‘s fabulous Calvin Klein emerald cocktail dress and matching  gold mirrored box clutch (also from Calvin Klein).

Academy Award nominee Viola Davis graced the affair wearing a little white dress and sporting a sparkly black clutch.

Elle Fanning has more than stepped out of her sister’s shadows in the style department as she looked elegantly romantic in her Calvin Klein dress while carrying a Dolce & Gabbana needlepoint purse.

Uma Thurman simply rocked the event in an all-black ensemble which featured a custom-made Calvin Klein black skirt suit and a black clutch with glitter detail at the sides.

What’s your favorite clutch among the list? We’d love to know!

We couldn’t name the clutch Rumer brought but what we know is that the bag in question is quite a stunner with its sparkling crystal inlay. If you know what this clutch is, do drop us a line!
