While looking at the searches that brings people to our blog there was a few searches for bags to carry with desi outfits. Some people like to go all "matchy matchy" with accessories so with a green saree they'll wear green shoes, carry a green bag, have green jewellery and (my nightmare) have matching green eyeshadow.
Personally I think we need to move away from that, people, we don't have to be matchy matchy, we can be co-ordinated instead!
Anyways I think clutch bags are awesome and I have been obsessed with them for a little while. You don't need a gazillion, just a few basic ones and you're good to do.
Clutch bags you need:
-> A gold one
-> A silver one
-> A neutral shade so a nude/beige/brown or if you must, a black one (I hate black bags)
-> & a quirky one.
The ones featured below are a mix of mostly designer and high street. However I have seen cheaper variations of them floating all around.
If you live in the UK, my favourite shops for clutches are New Look, Primark and Accessorize (Monsoon). Although to be honest, I don't personally think that the Accessorize ones are worth their price (very pretty though). Primark has some amazing ones for under 10 pounds, however they are temperamental as they have them in randomly. So keep an eye out and when you see them, pick one up. Don't wait till you need one to buy it.
Quirky bags are great for days when you're outfit is probably a little less blingy and you want to dress a bit edgier. Love the LOVETOBAGs from Pernia's Pop Up Shop.

This gold glittery bag was from Primark and cost......wait for it.......£6!
Yep. An absolute bargain. It's probably the most used bag in our house for going out as it's really versatile. I bought it by chance, not having a need for it then.
