I always buy clutches but never end up using them. I like the idea of casually standing around a cocktail party with a clutch tucked up your arm but when it comes down to it, a strap is handier.

I think clutches are beautiful, though! Streamlined and elegant.

I agree, I always admire simple, elegant outfits that include a hand held clutch. But for myself, it's not practical.

I have a clutch from Gianfranco Ferre (remember him?!) that I just cannot part with. It's been sitting inside my closet for about 10 years, longer than any other bag I've owned! I would love to get a wristlet one of these days.

I have a ridiculously small shiny silver Marc Jacobs makeup bag I carry as a clutch and a green chain mail brass mesh Juicy Couture frame bag that I can tuck the strap into and carry as a clutch but only for dressing up/going out

I have a Judith Leiber that can be used as a clutch. I prefer carrying a clutch with formal attire.

I have a beautiful chanel black clutch with a little silver chain. It can be worn with or without the chain, I will get my camera tomorrow and take a picture of it. I have a project that I will be working on tomorrow, I want to organize my shoe boxes, so I am taking pictures of all my shoes and pasting them on the boxes. Its the only way I can keep track.
