Splurge or Save: Wedding Clutches

Happy Friday! Aren’t you so excited the weekend is here? This post comes at a perfect time for you brides looking to take care of the little things this weekend.  This week we’re talking about wedding clutches for the big day! We can show you two of our favorite picks for the essential piece that completes that wedding outfit!

Wedding Day Clutch: SAVE

The Nina Beaded Frame Clutch is the perfect complement to your wedding dress. It comes in a variety of finishes and is big enough to fit your day of essentials.  The satin lining gives it that feminine touch that’s a sweet surprise.  It can be worn as a clutch or has an extended strap as an extra detail.  At $125 you can’t go wrong with this style, even after your wedding day! Available at www.nordstroms.com

Wedding Day Clutch: SPLURGE

Our pick for over the top clutch is Jimmy Choo’s Glitter Clutch.  Often women never want to treat themselves to a party clutch because its impractical.  But in our opinion, this one actually is! It’s versatile, comes in a variety of colors and truly a gem that you can hold onto for a long time.  If you’re feeling extra special and want to splurge since you’ve been so good at being on budget (wink wink), this clutch is $595 and available at www.jimmychoo.com
