This is not new, I’ve loved Clare Vivier’s simplistic, minimal, pared-down bags since I first discovered them. I always have the messenger bag in the back of my mind and lately, I’ve been loving the clutches, and especially this pochette with the HOT PINK stripe!!!
Clare’s bags always seem to me to be just what I’m looking for – I love the bright colors and functional designs. They’re also affordable ($300-$400) and made in Los Angeles with lots of love. Luckily, one of my favorite local boutiques, Spartan, carries a selection of Clare’s bags, so I can go in and fondle them in person every once in a while until I’m ready to finally take the plunge….
