All in a clutch.

Until now i had never owned a clutch bag, i had the common stereotype of a one lipstick wonder stuck in my head but this Koko couture clutch is set to change my mind. 

Koko couture kindly asked me if i wanted to try out one of their bags; for once i thought ‘branch out a little bit Maria for once in your life don’t go for a black shoulder bag’. I have to admit i was very difficult to pick a bag, i mean have you seen their selection???? In the end i went for the Harper clutch in beige.*

The reason i wear nude lipstick so much is because it goes with everything and by the looks of it, that applies to nude bags as well. The light beige colour of the bag keeps everything in my neutral comfort zone but just lifts the colour palette that tiny bit, so its not just a bag its a deliberate choice. The harper clutch lends its self perfectly to bright crisp winter days but at the same time wouldn’t look out of place on an evening out in the summer months. 

Like i said previously i had a stereotypical image of what a clutch bag was in my mind: Phone, lipstick, purse? Check. Anything else? Nope. I always associated clutch bags with evening wear but i can really see myself using this much more in the day; the fold over front of the bag is one huge zip pocket with another zip pocket within that and underneath the fold is yet another pocket! I feel like i’ve typed the word pocket wayyy too much. 

The beauty of being able to fit my Olympus Pen EPL 8 in here along with a detached lens, means i can realistically bring this out with me on shorter days, without having to leave out vital handbag essentials. Of course i can use it on nights out too but you know me, never talk about the obvious. 

Also i can’t leave out the fact this comes in a dust bag, i feel so fancy i own a bag that comes with a dust bag – if you don’t get my excitement over that we can’t be friends. 

I’m pairing my Koko couture clutch £18 currently on sale for £14.40, with my grey stradivarius jumper, Topshop lucas jeans £45, Primark trench, black low top Converse £44.99 , New Look watch and Bloom Boutique rose gold disk bracelet £14, also currently on sale for £11.20.

You can find Koko couture bags at 40 different Topshop stores or at their website here!

    This clutch is beautiful and so simple but chic. Koko Couture bags are just pretty in general! Clutch bags in daytime are such a refreshing change from structured city bags or crossbodies, and seem like the perfect answer to my achey shoulder! I like the way you've styled it as well!

    That clutch looks really versatile, like you can use it with any type of outfit!

    Honestly, the reason why I don't get clutches is because I'm not a fan how how we have to, well… clutch it! I prefer having straps on my shoulder and move around more freely.

    But it's a really beautiful bag!
