A Clutch Bag Revolution
Posted by on March 14, 2012 | 9:24 am EST

More often than not, clutch bags are left hidden under piles of everyday satchels and totes, brought out only when a dress code compels women to significantly reduce their bag essentials. Although not used as frequently as they should, these little gems are not mere accessories to carry all night. Besides being a keeper of evening essentials, clutch bags can also deliver the finishing oomph to a woman’s look.
