Elena Miro

{things i wore} python embossed clutch


When I get a new handbag I can't stop wearing it–I find a way to convince myself that it matches everything in my closet and that the rest of the world will see it as the statement piece I think it is. Luckily for me, both of these ideas are without a doubt true for this gorgeous neutral-colored clutch. I was positively stunned when it arrived courtesy of GiGi New York: the dyed textured surface is perfectly detailed, it can fit so much for its size, and it comes with a fabulous (and completely detachable) skinny shoulder strap. Even the packaging was luxe–I'm such a sucker for sturdy boxes and labeled dust bags. The only bad thing about owning this bag is finding reasons not to wear it.
