Just One Thing: A quirky station wagon clutch.

I’ve seen this clutch a number of times.  When it first came out I was initially perplexed  and then (rather strangely) I found myself thinking it would be a really interesting and cool addition to my collection.  It’s the kind of item that epitomizes how I characterize the direction of the Kate Spade brand: chic and quirky and classic and fun.  I appreciate how simplified and graphic the bag is, and how it makes no excuse for its existence – falling squarely into the realm of an oversized clutch.

This is a centre-of-attention kind of bag.  I’d pair it with a simple outfit like a black turtleneck or sweater, a classic swing coat, medium or dark wash jeans.  For a some other visual interest add a metallic belt, bold earrings…even a coordinating pair of heels could be in order.  Those metallic penny loafers from a couple weeks ago could have also fit in quite nicely.

While this is by no means a “staple” addition to a handbag wardrobe, it is something I’ll JOT down for when I need to fulfill a craving for a quirky clutch.
