Clutch moment

I'm not really a purse kind of gal.

Strange you say? Yes, yes it is.

I guess I should clarify that I am not usually a clutch purse kind of gal because I am always going 50 directions at once and it never fails that the little guy gets left behind. *sigh*

There is really nothing worse than losing your purse, it is such a PAIN! But even after my McCrazyPants rant here (Thanks Julie for that rad name!), I am going to cautiously say, I think I'm becoming a Clutch Convert.

They are just so stinkin' gorgeous that I can't resist any longer! Here are some of the eye candy that I've been drooling over:

Cute and casual...

Chic and Fun...

Colorful and Adorable...

Sparkly and Classy...

Just plain Bad-A...


Alexander McQueen


Can you guess where I got these from?


I will be the first to admit that almost all of these are *way* out of my price range for what I'm looking for (hey, I'm trying to ease in slowly...)
But I must say that little etsy pink number has me all a twitter...(c:

What about *YOU*???

Clutches, yes, no, maybe so?

And speaking of clutch moments for All Things Bright and Beautiful...we got a new look!

Thanks to the fabulous Elizabeth at The Mustart Ceiling!!!


You like???

Because WE LOVE!!!

Poor, poor Elizabeth had to deal with me all week...but she took it like a champ! She was absolutely awesome to work with and just rolled with *EVERY* crazy scheme I threw her way. (c:

I was a serious pain in the patootie.

But look how fabulously it turned out!

Thanks so much Elizabeth, you are a rockstar!

If you want to see some of the other designs she came up with for me ('cause there were A LOT of them!), she did a quick post on it, it's fun to check out!

***And here's a secret, if you are looking for a new look of your *very own*, The Mustard Ceiling is offering 25% off if you book in the month of June...it is a *killer* deal for getting Miss Elizabeth to work her magic***

I LOVE clutches especially when they fit in your hand just perfectly! Clutches do much more for an outfit! xx

Jenna Lee said...

I also love clutches. They are cute, but I only find them practical for a night out. I love the pink sparkly one best!

Happy Monday!

Portuguese Prepster said...

I struggle with clutches- I just can't fit all my junk into them!

Baby Shopaholic said...

Site looks FAB! Congrats! I carry a clutch every time I get "dressed up". Can't carry much tho. I love that Halston one, I think you should get that asap!

Ms. Bright said...

I told E yesterday how amazing your new design looks!! I'm sooo jealy! I totally need her help!!

xoxo

oh, and those clutches are FABULOUS!! I think you should get one of each. Just tell your hubs it was my idea ;)

Julip Made said...

Hahahah I love that my McCrazy lingo is rubbing off on you. I do love clutches, but I usually have to much stuff that I want to bring... (camera, notebook, phone, makeup bag, gum, the kitchen sink, etc...) so I just end up with a larger purse.
LOVEEEEE the new look btw, fabulous job Elizabeth!

Awesome post! Clutches are a ginormous pain to actually carry, but I adore then. I buy them and then rarely use them. I have the craziest cat print Miu Miu clutch. Of the ones you posted I love the McQueen and that really big one. Maybe a big clutch is what I need (less chance to lose). Right now I am coveting a Bottega Veneta knot clutch.

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

Wow, I love your new look!!! I'm not a daytime clutch person 'cause I also will leave it everywhere. I do like a nighttime clutch because it's tres chic and I can use it like an accessory.

Anne said...

I love your colors! everything looks sooooooooooooo great! :)

Kim @ keller-creative said...

I love the Emerson Made clutches. think clutches are super cute but I need a magic clutch that can fit dslr camera. Do you think you can find me one of those?

Kim @ keller-creative said...

Wow, apparently I think pronouns are over rated. Sorry for the cryptic comment above :)

Sara Mueller said...

love the second clutch and your new look!

{COZAMIA} said...

I'm digging the new look, love the navy with pink!
These clutches make me want to start a collection (one that I can't afford)... I love the pink one with the leather trim! Can you tell I like pink?

Jenna said...

Loving those EmersonMade wallets!!

Bud and Leo said...

LOVE YOUR NEW LOOK! So fab! And adore clutches, esp Celine & McQueen!

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

Your new look is great! And so are the Emerson Made clutches :)

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Love the new look, sweetie!!! And I can see how clutches can be a bit of a pain but aren't they amazing? I seriously never stop buying them. It's a compulsion. Can't help myself :)

Hope u had a great weekend! xoxo

Bree@ 700sqftDesign said...

I didn't even realize I LOVED clutches until this post. The truth about clutches not practical, but dang if when you see a chica stroll by with one you automatically think she's got style!

Tamra of walkswithBella said...

I've been on the hunt for a new clutch. McQueen dream clutch!! Love the colorful pradas.. I think I would go for teal or orange.

emily said...

Your new blog look is rad! And now you have me thinking that I need a new clutch! :)

natasha {schue love} said...

I love a great clutch! The bigger the better IMO too! But really, only for fun occasions...b/c you're right, they can EASILY get lost! :)

PS...LOVE the new look! Elizabeth did a great job!

Michaela said...

Holy cowwwww. The blog looks wonderful! LOVE the new look! And yes, I love a good clutch (:

Natalie said...

Love the new look girl! and I used to be a clutch girl pre-baby but now I just carry my house of a purse around to fit all the crap me and the baby need! I am digging that ikat clutch though.....

christine {bijouandboheme} said...

Just seeing your new look now and it's FABULOUS- so perfectly you!!!! And ps, thanks for the shout out sweetie. xo

Amanda Hill said...

I am currently thinking up a plan to get that Alexander MaQueen one! J'adore! I am posting some sweet ones on my blog today from a new designer!

a' la mode said...

Ever since baby I am now a clutch girl! I swore that would NEVER happen- I'm too chic, right? nope. I'm not. I am only a quarter chic now as I carry less. lol. Good thing that Halston sequin was sold out bc it would have been MINE! great blog btw, I just found you through my girl at PIP- she rocks too! xoxo shel

Things That Sparkle said...

It looks amazing, sorry I am so late!!! Absolutely love it

Kelly said...

As if I could love Emerson Made anymore!

Things to Do said...

I love the new design. I have the same concern with clutches. I tend to favor the super cute design but must have a write tie (I know they're not clutches, but it's close). :)
