Clutches ~ Best Make-Up Bags?

Good Morning Everyone,

Sorry for the no-post on Monday. I have been really wanting to stay away for social media. There has been so much junk going around. My good friend texted me this past weekend and asked, "hey are you going to post a video"? Oh my, I completely forgot about my channel! I will try to get something posted this weekend.

This weekend I was dealing with my Roomba. I had to get "Alfred" on a cleaning schedule because my husband had control of him and he was not being used. So we transferred the app to my phone and now I have Alfred on a cleaning schedule. Yeppee!

In today's post I wanted to talk about my favorite clutches. Now I use my clutches as makeup bags because my purses are like totes so I can get away with it.

This first one has been a favorite for about a couple of years. I purchased it from Ann Taylor about two years ago and I love the color and the velvet texture.

It looks great and has been a wonderful makeup bag for me. Below are all of my clutches that I use as makeup bags. 

I use all of them for different seasons. Most of them I purchased brand-new and the embroidered one I just purchased from Poshmark last week and I love it so far!

I use these during the winter and fall months. There is plenty of room and I love the textures and colors. The red velvet was purchased from Ann Taylor Factory and the pearl one was purchased from Banana Republic

These two I will probably carry through the spring and summer months. The pink one I purchased from Aldo and it comes with a chain.

But I got to tell you I do love my embroidered clutch from Poshmark.  

It has lots of room and pockets for special items. I am going to enjoy having this in my tote. 

It looks great and fits well. I hope you all enjoyed this post and that maybe it sparked a little interested in clutches for you. I know I love big bags and not everyone can carry one but if you have a work tote maybe this would be a good option for you. Enjoy your day!
