small for a change

The New York Times Style Magazine thinks clutch bags are making a big comeback. Of course, little purses are nothing new (back in highschool I’d pair 3dollar granny clutches with crumby old tees and feel like a million bucks--oh the shame) but after the long-continued body bag trend, smaller-sized bags suddenly seem quite refreshing and nice. They're not the most practical option, and as a student I love my wide and roomy leather totes, but there's something about carrying a tiny purse that just screams effortless cool. For a while now, I've been obsessed with the idea of sporting a voluminous sculptural coat or jacket with a teeny tiny clutch. So yes NYTimes, I am definitely feelin you. Personally I dig hard box-type clutches (leather or metallic) like the ones from Jil Sander SS07 or the one this girl from facehunter has so perfectly paired with her vest.But vintage inspired ones are pretty too.
