Fave New Clutch:

I’ve found the perfect nude clutch for Spring, or black for year-round from Phillip Lim.  It’s funky, has Phillip Lim’s signature silver grommets and holds everything.  Technically the bags are cosmetic cases, but they really don’t look like them.  But because they indeed are, they’re priced less expensively than a clutch.  Winner winner!  And an extra score is that they’re now 25% off on Saks for the Friends & …
