Clutch Essentials
Clutches have been a good friends to us girls. They've seen us through the funnest nights of dancing and drinking and the roughest that involve losing it due to drinking. It's the perfect bag for when the sun goes down and work turns into play. However, if you're are like me, downsizing can be fickle matter. What do you mean I have to choose between my eyeliner and my lipstick?! These choices are some of the harder ones I've come across in life. So if you're anything like me, check out how I've downsized for my clutch worthy nights. I enlisted the help of SnobSwap Co-Founders Elise Whang and Emily Dang to show how to do it. clutch essentials

My Clutch: Clutches translate to simplicity. You only have room to carry the absolute necessities for the night. If I'm carrying one  it's more than likely that I am going to an evening event and solely need my essentials to freshen up my look. This clutch was handmade in India and has a beautiful metallic gold trimming with beaded appliqués. I have my NYX lipgloss to ensure my lip color stays fresh, Dennis Basso perfume in case it gets a little stuffy, and blush to give myself a bit of color to look more alive! The smaller pouch is from Jacmel, Haiti hand-made by artisans and I use it as mini wallet to store my ID and credit cards.

Elise's Clutch: My favorite one would have to be this Valentino Rockstud. Both sleek and edgy, it allows me space whilst still maintaining a minimalist cool. Since I often don't have time to leave the office before events I always bring a statement necklace to facilitate the day-to-night transition. I never go anywhere without my iPhone or mini LV wallet of course! My beauty clutch must have is my Japanese eye liner for touch ups. It's actually an eyebrow gel but works wonders as a liner (my little secret).

Emily's Clutch: My Givenchy Clutch from SnobSwap always seems dominated by Chanel. Chanel phone case, Chanel perfume (smells like heaven, btw) and Chanel powder of course! I also love to keep my bling handy so that I don't have to feel so formal for after work.  I'm still in love with my Bauble Bar ear cuff and J. Crew statement clutch. They are the perfect way to "nightify" your outfit. Nevertheless, my favorite thing in my clutch is the Jack Black lip balm. BEST ONE EVER!
