This Comic Book Clutch Is For Anyone Trying To Be A Street Style Star
A couple of weeks ago, I was having one of my usual blogger stalking seshs when I came across this comic book-print bag on Walk In Wonderland. How freakin' cool is it? Of course, this led me to find out the designer and where to buy it. The Milan Envelope ($585) clutch (or should I say, document folder) is by Elisabeth Weinstock. It pretty much has all the makings of the perfect street style accessory that will get photogs to snap your pic--we know the tricks. So if you want to be the coolest chick in your office who may or may not be mistaken for a style blogger, get one of these. And if comics aren't your thing, it comes in croc and snakeskin too.

This ‘Size Does Matter’ Clutch Is Winning Fashion Week Street Style
Since the advent of the street style star, fashion week has become less about what is shown on the actual runway, and more about what these pretty "it" girls are wearing TO the shows. Sure, this has created some pretty big egos in the blogger world, but it's also resulted in some great trendspotting outside the tents. Case in point: at New York fashion week earlier this month, fashion writer Nausheen Shah was snapped by On Abbot Kinney holding an oversized metallic "SIZE DOES MATTER" clutch. All the style photographers and fashion fans outside of Lincoln Center lost their sh*t--it wasn't just a great photo opportunity, it's an effing cool bag. Later in the week, we also saw Renee Ogaki from STYLUSTE with the bag. Okay, now we officially wanted one. We did a little research and discovered that it's by BOYY--and it's actually customizable so you can have yours say whatever you want (size doesn't matter?). The BOYY Personalized Clutch ($555) comes in 4 colors: black, gold metallic, lead metallic and cotton candy metallic. The bag isn't cheap--but it's also not a $5K Chanel bag. For more info on customization, [email protected] And it looks like Zara just hopped on the bandwagon. Check out this incredibly similar clutch bag they've released: Zara Leather Pouch ($29.90) Zara Leather Pouch ($29.90) [Photo: Nausheen Shah, STYLUSTE]
2014 Already Has An ‘It’ Bag–And It Looks Like A Bag Of Chips
Welcome to 2014, where the ties that bound you last year are officially off and we can all start anew. First things first? An "It" clutch that is already causing as much controversy as when Leandre Medine brought overalls back (or--you know--popularized them again). Already featured in the January issues of ELLE and Marie Claire--which means all editors at Hearst will soon, if they do not already, own this bag--and seen on Lulu Kennedy, editor at large at LOVE Magazine, and Lucy Chadwick, a gallery director featured often on The Selby and in videos for brands including ZARA, this new "It" clutch best resembles a bag of chips (but with suede inner lining). And that bag of chips looks is something at which even Anya Hindmarch, the bag's designer, pokes fun at with her team: But why so much controversy? Because the bag isn't what a lot of people would necessarily describe as "cute" (hint: the chip resemblance). Instead, the bag is winning fans in art circles, proving that its aesthetic is more artistic than perhaps functional. While the artistically inclined and bigger publishing houses are loving it, fashion bloggers (or as traditionally known, real people) aren't so swept away. "I see the intent--fun, splashy capriciousness--but the result is something that most resembles a Capri Sun juice pouch on a chain, and there’s nothing good about that" says Kelly Cook, Snob Essentials. "Especially when your fruit punch costs you over $1,500 and has no Vitamin C. It actually takes a moment to look at this and realize it's a bag, not trash." Fair enough, and maybe this bag isn't for everyone. But for those who like to mix their style with a little bit of modern art, the crisp clutch is It. Just please, no one show it to Kim or Kanye. Seriously, we don't want them getting any ideas. BUY THE ANYA HINDMARCH CRISP CLUTCH HERE
Can You Tell Which Grey Clutch Is $412 More Than The Other?
Everyone needs a great clutch for fall, especially a grey one. The color is sleek, neutral, and goes with everything. It's always so hard to find accessories that work with black AND brown, but grey does the trick. And when that grey clutch has some zipper embellishments like these two choices, your outfit will be taken to a whole new level. But one of these clutches is designer, and costs almost $400 more than the other. Can you tell which clutch is Stella McCartney and which is the knockoff? Answer: The clutch on the left is Nasty Gal's Chained Envelope Clutch ($48), and the clutch on the right is a Stella McCartney Falabella Clutch ($460). Now we can't tell you how the material feels, but they sure do look pretty similar! Do you think the McCartney looks like it costs $400 more than the Nasty Gal?

Charlotte Olympia’s Perfume Clutches Won’t Actually Make You Smell Good–But Who Cares?

The 2011 Accessory Designer of Year just released her newest collection of clutches...and the bags are shaped like perfume bottles. The elegant, see-through clutches retail at $1,295 each and are available in 3 different "scents": yellow, pink and blue. We wouldn't expect anything less whimsical from designer (we wish it was acceptable to carry around her Christmas-themed clutches all year around).

Can You Tell Which Striped Clutch Costs $100 Less?
This year, Clare Vivier's neon striped clutch made the handbag designer a breakout star; after the bestselling bag went viral on Pinterest, she collaborated with Wren, among other accomplishments. Well, as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery -- and that is certainly the case for her neon and tan pouch: Steve Madden has already released a knock-off look-alike and there's an eerily similar style in Gap's spring collection, too. Oh, and American Apparel borrowed the design of her oversize fold-over clutch. So, can you tell, which of the above clutches is the original Clare Vivier bag, and which is the $100-less Steve Madden version? Answer: The bag at left is Steve Madden's Pop-Stripe zip pouch ($78) and the bag at right is Clare Vivier's striped clutch ($165).

You’ll Fall Hard For These Geode, Shell & Rock Clutches
Instead of the usual leather clutch, go for this coming season's favorite handheld accessory, the durable clutch.

In Summer, Black Leather Clutches Won’t Do: Shop Colorful, Beach-y Ones Instead
Your hands will be itching to clutch these cute and summer appropriate bags after you've clicked through.

We’ve Got A Hard On For These Shell & Geo Clutches
This season, clutches are either super-soft (like Clare Vivier's) or hard as a rock (like Edie Parker's).

These box clutches come in a variety of exteriors; Tom Ford's is tortoiseshell, Lanvin's is mother of pearl, and Edie's is sparkly "geo" rock, so there is something for everyone.

Leave It To The Glamourai To Make Cashmere Edgy & Inspired

Nicole Richie’s New House Of Harlow 1960 Purses Look Conspicuously Like Alexander McQueen’s
Left: House of Harlow 1960. Right: Alexander McQueen Though I'm a huge fan of House of Harlow 1960 jewelry and sunglasses (hello, Nicole Richie is the designer--why wouldn't they be amazing?!), but I couldn't help but notice the striking similarities between the line's début handbag collection, and Alexander McQueen's iconic clutches. However, the House of Harlow 1960 clutches (pictured on the left) are only two of the three styles that have been released on WWD from the 14-piece line, so for all I know, they're the only copycats of the bunch. And to their credit, they are a whole lot cheaper than McQueen (For example, the red crocodile clutch, bottom left, will retail for $150). These pieces, as well as the rest of the collection, will be available next month in select department stores and on Shopbop.com. Follow the author of this post on Twitter @shefindschar.

It seems fitting that this $1,495 Alexander McQueen clutch is the color of money (for us at least) In addition to the Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Facebook page and the Royal Wedding Girl Meme (Google it), Kate Middleton and Prince William's wedding also elicited a trend epitomizing all things British: the Union Jack. This British Flag pattern, like the one featured in the hardware on the Alexander McQueen clutch above, can now be found on everything from short shorts to dog beds.

5 Rock & Roll Studded Handbags For Fall (Groupie Status Not Required)
Luckily, handbags are always a good investment because, unlike other wardrobe staples, you can wear them as many consecutive days as you want without getting nailed by the Fashion Police. What's also serendipitous is that one of our favorite bag trends - the rock 'n' roll studded look, is majorly in style for fall. Here are some of our favorites: The Matt & Nat Scrilla ($101.97, down from $255) is an earthy take on a studded tote with its vegan status and slouchy, easy silhouette. Don't be fooled - it works just as easily with a chic, nighttime look as it does with jeans and a tee. In the "Yes, Please!" category, this MICHAEL Michael Kors Uptown Astor Large Shoulder Tote ($448) is pretty much handbag nirvana. We have trouble imagining an outfit this wouldn't look amazing with, plus it has strap options, always a good thing. For maximum impact, the Morcheba Clutch from Malene Birger ($445) is your best bet. Because this foldover clutch mixes different metals and shapes, your other accessories will fit right in and further enhance the rocker-glam chicness of this bag. We love it with a cropped blazer and skinny jeans or a little black dress. Olivia Harris' lambskin Studded Ball Leather Hobo ($495) mixes a classic chain strap with the super trendy studded look to arrive at a bag that's edgy and elegant at the same time, bound to be a wardrobe staple for a long time. And if you'd need to sell your gold fillings to afford some of the pricier studded options, we feel your pain. Thankfully, Old Navy brings us the supercute Old Navy Studded Hobo ($30.50) which has a comfortable carrying shape and an on-trend trim of mixed metal embellishments, and leaves you some money for a killer pair of over the knee boots.

Kate Walsh’s Sexy Emmys After-Party Minidress Outshines The Red Carpet Gowns
Although I'm not a Grey's Anatomy fan, I've got to say of all the beauties on the Emmys and after-party red carpets, this long sleeve, cinched dress on Kate Walsh was one of my top 3 favorites (Lea Michelle in Oscar de la Renta is up there too). Maybe I love it so much because it's totally wearable in real life (think black pumps and hoop earrings for a chic nighttime look this fall). Maybe because it somehow nailed "modest" and "sexy" in one (long sleeve knit dresses are huge this fall). Oh well, enough with why we love it - let's get to how to wear it: Nail Kate's sexy look with this Alice + Olivia Gretta Long Sleeve dress ($242). The front ruching is forgiving, and the contrast between the long sleeves and the short mini will drive men wild. A perfect for fall version is this Autumn Cashmere mochachino cashmere twisted knot dress ($195, down from $325). You will want to live in this super-soft cashmere sweater dress; pair it with textured gray tights and clogs for an on-trend fall look. If you prefer black over brown, go for this super-sexy Riller & Fount Tropic Long Sleeve Mini dress ($165). The knot detail is flattering for all bust lines, and the plunge neckline makes this dress a fall party show-stopper. You can never go wrong with a neutral pair of pumps like Kate did. They work for the office, parties, happy hour, red carpets and beyond. Hence why this Jimmy Choo 'Lockett' Pumps ($495) is worth every penny. A cream leather clutch is a staple every gal needs in her arsenal; this Lauren Merkin Caroline Glitter Python-Embossed clutch ($250) also has an amazing python embossed detail.
