Ah, the clutch.  She’s got a us in her clutch! Get it? Yes, I AM hilarious. Officially.  So yes about these beautiful accessories that hold your precious things..They are here to stay, so it’s just a matter of what shape and form they will take next.  I am of the realization that the ethnic variety is nothing new on the market, but truth be told, I still find it’s relevance worth mentioning, and even going as far as dedicating an entire post to it.  I am smitten with the concept of this ethnic clutch against graphic stripes, but also fascinated by the way it can be juxtaposed against another busy pattern and texture as shown above (image via google, and from NYFW).
Do I believe you need to wear tons of bracelets and rings when holding this clutch? I most certainly do! And that shouldn’t surprise you one bit.
 So have yourself one of these beauties, or dare I say? DIY IT!
How?  Perhaps find yourself in a thrift store, and pick up some ethnic fabric (most likely in the form of a dress… then cut that baby up into the size you want the clutch..personally I say the more oversized the sexier)
Next… sew it together (think of it as two rectangles, and then a triangle that would flap over one side like an envelope)  Then embellish the kid and you’re done!
If you don’t find you have the time or skills to do it on your own you can always try these ones I found below:
